California, 1850. Alejandro de la Vega (Banderas), the man behind the mask of outlaw champion Zorro, seems to lose his beloved wife Elena (Zeta-Jones) to a scheming French aristocrat, and sinks into drunken despair just as his skills are needed to defend the still-emergent United States.
Undemanding Saturday-matinee action fun in Old California, but hardly a hot-ticket holiday blockbuster.
