Storyline

Don Diego is fighting for the peons against the Commandante. Shortly after the Governor and his daughter Isabella arrive, the Governor is killed and marked with a Z. When Don Diego's identity as Zorro is revealed to Isabella, she has the Commandante arrest him as the killer. But he convinces her the Commandante was the killer as the Z was backwards.

Better than Banderas
5 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

Well received in it's time and holds up well today. Plot and dialog are notable, and the Heather Angel character is powerful decades before feminism. Skip Banderas. Watch this one.
