The Mask of Zorro
is a sweeping adventure of love, honor, tragedy and triumph set against the Spanish conquest of Mexico.
It's been 20 years since Don Diego de la Vega (Anthony Hopkins
) fought oppression as the legendary romantic hero Zorro, and now he must find a successor to once again stop Raphael Montero, the corrupt official who robbed him of everything he loved and left him to rot in a Mexican prison.
Antonio Banderas stars as Alejandro Murietta, a drifter with a troubled past whom Don Diego transforms into the fearless romantic hero he once was.
Armed with his mask, sword, whip and jet-black stallion Tornado, the new Zorro embarks on a mission to stop redress 20 years of injustice and at last bring hope to a people enslaved by Montero's greed.
