The Legend of Zorro

More than 50 Zorro adventures have appeared in Mexico and the U.S. since Douglas Fairbanks introduced him to moviegoers in The Mark of Zorro (1920), but the most profitable ever was the 1998 The Mask of Zorro, a tolerable action epic with ham-bone Anthony Hopkins as the aging crusader and a dashing Antonio Banderas as heir to the mask. This listless sequel is more like Lucy and Desi in The Long, Long Trailer: in 1850, years after the first picture took place, Banderas is still riding around carving Zs into everything, and his frustrated spouse (Catherine Zeta-Jones) finally divorces him to take up with a rich smoothie (Rufus Sewell). There's also a secret plot involving awesome explosives, but you couldn't manufacture a bigger bomb than this. Martin Campbell directed. PG, 130 min.
