More western then Zorro this is too mechanical to be great
Hero returns from the Civil War and finds his home county over run by crooked politicians who are taxing everyone out of existence. Run of the mill western is pretty good but what is Zorro doing in all of this? Clearly it was time to crank out the old cliffhangers and use them again. Give Republic points for turning out well done action chapter plays but take a few simply because we've seen it all before, in the B westerns they and other studios were producing. It suffers from being too much the run of the western serial mill. However if you haven't seen many serials or B-Westerns, this is a good little time killer.
6 out of 10 simply because its so by the numbers
