Legend of Zorro, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Rip-roaring action-adventure sequel to 1998's "The Mask of Zorro." It picks up the story 10 years later as the masked swordsman (played as before by Antonio Banderas) finds himself torn between family responsibilities to his wife (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and young son, and his destiny as defender of the poor and oppressed of Old California, whose bid for statehood is threatened by the sinister plot of a secret Masonic-like fraternity. Directed by Martin Campbell, the film lacks the freshness of the original, but its swashbuckling stunt pieces -- reminiscent of old-time serials -- touches of romance and comedy, and the spirited chemistry between its leads earn it a "Z" rating for "zestfully" entertaining. Much stylized violence, peril, some mildly crude expressions and sexual innuendo. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
