In need of a successor to take down the evil Montero (Wilson), the swashbuckling hero Zorro (Hopkins) selects Alejandro Murrieta (Banderas) as his protege, turning him into an ace swordfighter – and a stylish dresser to boot. Lively and witty, with excellent swordplay, Campbell's (Goldeneye) adventurous and nostalgic romp is a welcome respite from the summer's gloom and doom millennial action flicks.
