PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Comedy
A young thief (Antonio Banderas), seeking revenge for the death of his brother, is trained by the once great, but aged Zorro (Sir Anthony Hopkins), who also pursues vengeance of his own.
There is a distinct difference between the costumes for Don Diego de la Vega (Sir Anthony Hopkins) as Zorro and Alejandro Murrieta (Antonio Banderas) as Zorro. Costume Designer Graciela Mazón claimed that de la Vega's costume portrayed his Spanish heritage, while Alejandro's portrayed his Mexican heritage.
I miss my brother, sir.
Don Diego de la Vega: Your brother is dead. We lose the ones we love, we cannot change it. Put it aside.
Alejandro Murrieta: How? How can I do what is needed, when all I feel is... hate.
Don Diego de la Vega: You hide it, with this.
Captain Love shouldn't have been wearing shoulder scales OR epaulets with a duty uniform. Those grade insignia are for use with the dress uniform only, and would have been appropriate only for the party sequence. The duty uniform for officers featured shoulder straps as grade insignia. (Enlisted men, of course, wore chevrons and, if their rank was high enough, rockers.)
The film opens and closes with Zorro drawing his sword and slashing a Z on the screen.
