Errol's son Sean Flynn stars in this delightful piece of fast paced fluff. The lively son of a Basque aristocrat lady discovers that he has a father living in Mexico. The father has requested the help of his son with some trouble at hand. Reluctantly the son sails across the Atlantic only to find his father murdered by the evil local administration. Revenge follows.
It's most interesting to watch "Errol Jr." trying to imitate his father's nonchalant style of acting. Even more worrying is that he actually pulls it off a few times. Rest of the time it's just plain painful. But in a good way. All in the references to Zorro are few. In fact: two. At some point the son wears a mask that barely resembles any mask worn by the other Zorros. Later on the famous Z- mark has mysteriously appeared on some wall. That's it.
All in all this one is a fairly basic swordplay- movie which manages to rise above mediocrity mainly because of fast pace and burlesque characters.
Released on video in Finland in the early eighties.
