The Legend of Zorro ★★½ 2005 (PG)

Noisy sequel to “The Mask of Zorro” finds Banderas returning as our swashbuckling masked hero, along with Zeta-Jones as his equally hot-blooded spouse, Elena. They are now the parents of impetuous 10-year-old Joaquin (Alonso), but the marriage has enough cracks that Elena kicks Zorro out on his cape. There's also a couple of bad guys—sneering aristocrat Armand (Sewell) and scurvy McGivens (Chinlund)—and a plot that has to do with California becoming part of the United States. The leads are having a lot of fun and there's enough ridiculous action to make the pic speed by. 129m/C DVD, Blu-ray Disc, UMD . US Antonio Banderas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Rufus Sewell, Nicholas Chinlund, Julio Oscar Mechoso, Shuler Hensley, Michael Emerson, Adrian Alonso; D: Martin Campbell; W: Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman; C: Phil Meheux; M: James Horner.
