PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Comedy
A young thief, seeking revenge for the death of his brother, is trained by the once great, but aged Zorro, who also pursues vengeance of his own.
Legend has it that Director Martin Campbell didn't want to use Zorro's famous bullwhip in the film. However, Sir Anthony Hopkins felt the whip was an important part of Zorro's equipment. Hopkins practiced daily, learned to manipulate the whip, and persuaded Campbell to film certain tricks with the whip. The Whip is custom made by Alex Green. He gave it to Hopkins after he doubled for Hopkins in Legend of the Fall and The Edge!
Don Diego de la Vega:
Lesson number one: never attack in anger. Lesson number two...
Don Diego de la Vega: Come with me.
Alejandro Murrieta: What?
Alejandro Murrieta: So what is lesson number three?
Don Diego de la Vega: To get to lesson number four.
In the confessional, Elena says she broke the fourth commandment. For Roman Catholics, "honor thy father and mother" is the fourth commandment, not the fifth.
The film opens and closes with Zorro drawing his sword and slashing a Z on the screen.
