The Mask of Zorro

Holiday fare for the teenagers and adults. Zorro escapes from jail after 20 years, and teaches another young man to take over his role. He also regains his long-lost daughter. A real crowd pleaser, full of witty dialogue, and of course, the required swordplay and action.

Visitor Comments

Marna Butler: Very, very, very stunning.

Merwe Hartslief: I didn't expect much, and was therefor not dissapointed. It's a good old fashioned ''feel goood'' movie.

Bruce Humphrey: Ladies come and flock to this movie and swoon over the hottest Latin American lover around: Zorro (Antonio Banderas). Some say he can't act but I beg to differ (did you see him in Evita?). Anthony Hopkins is very good as the older Zorro and Catherine Zeta-Jones gives the guys something alluring to watch. Abundant humour, sword fighting and action certainly make this movie a pleasant few hours of entertainment!

Claire Nicole: Brill movie.

Andre Swanepoel: Quite an enjoyable show.

Laetitia Loubser: Excellent old fashioned entertainment spiced with new talent and techniques! A must to see!!!

John Cullen: Great swashbuckling adventure.

Jesus A. Sy: Great.
