The Mask of Zorro

DOWN & DIRTY:
Action/Adventure: Zorro, the legendary hero, trains a young protege to avenge both his and the young man's personal misfortunes by having him take his place as the fighting masked hero.

NITTY GRITTY:
The Spanish governor of California, Don Rafael Montero (STUART WILSON), prepares to leave the American west coast and his oppression of the locals, but not before one last public execution.

Before that happens, however, Don Diego de la Vega (ANTHONY HOPKINS), swoops in as Zorro, battles Montero's forces and frees those to be executed.

Montero quickly tracks down Don Diego in his estate where, after a brief battle, Don Diego's wife, Esperanza is killed. Montero then takes their infant daughter Elena as his own, and throws Don Diego in prison.

Twenty years later Don Diego manages to escape from prison when he learns that Montero has returned to the California territory. Prepared to kill his archenemy, Don Diego stops when he spots Elena (CATHERINE ZETA-JONES), now a ravishing young woman who believes Montero to be her father.

Needing someone to enact revenge for him, Don Diego recruits a local outlaw, Alejandro Murrieta (ANTONIO BANDERAS). Alejandro happens to be seeking his own revenge on Montero's military leader, Captain Harrison Love (MATT LETSCHER), for killing his brother. Don Diego decides to train Alejandro to be the next Zorro.

Alejandro becomes more proficient in his swashbuckling skills and has to learn to control his temper.

He must also deal with his growing attraction to Elena who is dazzled by the charming, masked figure.

After learning that Montero is preparing to enact an fiendish plan that will make him the owner of all of California, Alejandro and Don Diego team up to stop him.

THE ENDING:
Don Diego sends Montero on a wagon ride off a cliff. Alejandro kills Captain Love in a sword duel. Elena helps the prisoners escape before the gold mine blows up. Don Diego dies in Elena's arms.

Elena and Alejandro have a little boy who is told of the legend of Zorro.

WHAT EVERYONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT:
The swordplay of Catherine Zeta-Jones.
