This is not Zorro!
I wish someone here had put up their comments on this movie before I sat down to watch it - I might have been warned about what I was about to see! As you've probably guessed, I found this movie to be terrible. Although the name "Zorro" is constantly pulled up, the Zorro in this movie (as well as the character imitating him) is not like the Zorro we are familiar with. He doesn't wear a mask around his eyes - he has a black bandanna over his nose and mouth. And they use firearms instead of a sword, except for one very brief sword fighting sequence towards the end of the movie! That's bad enough, but the movie has additional problems. It starts off very confusingly, like if you started a book with the third chapter. There are also a lot of confusing parts that will make you say out loud, "Huh? What just happened?" or "Huh? Why did that happen?" The movie is also very boring, even when the movie decides to throw in a little action. To make matters worse, the pan-and-scan on the movie is horrible, sometimes with all the characters in one shot completely chopped off! I guess the movie does have some worth as being one of the earliest spaghetti westerns, made a few years before the craze started in earnest. But as for a vehicle for entertainment, forget it!
