The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

Six or seven guards are stripped of their clothes and left tied to a cactus and their backsides are completely exposed (played for laughs)

There is a scene in which a man and woman have sexual foreplay while sword fighting. They kiss and make mild innuendos, and when he disarms her he cuts off her nightgown (she is topless, but her hair covers her breasts). They then kiss passionately. She grabs some cloth and covers herself. She describes him to her father as being "vigorous."

A man and a woman dance Spanish tango together very suggestively.

Women wear some cleavage-revealing dresses.

A man is shown topless in a no sexual way (he is doing press ups)

A man takes a bath. Nothing seen from waist down

Violence & Gore

It is implied that a man's head is chopped off.

Later in the movie we see a man with a large glass jar with the decapitated man's head in it, and we see a hand in another jar. These are gruesome.

The violence in this movie is very toned down, with little or no blood. Zorro fights people throughout the film, but he mostly bruises or humiliates rather than kills. The only graphic violence in the film comes when a man has his cheek sliced by a sword (blood is shown), and a man is stabbed through the chest (blood shown) and then is crushed by tons of gold. A woman is shot in the back and killed.

Profanity

The usual for a PG-13 film. Mild language like "d**n", "h*ll", and "bastard."

There is some social drinking and smoking. A major character is a drunkard and is seen quite frequently intoxicated (his drunkeness is portrayed as negative). However, he later disciplines himself and sobers up.

A character severs his victim's fingers and heads and places them in jars of water (which he drinks). The body parts are seen in one scene, but it is very brief. Another character is seen drinking the water. He later throws the rest of the cup away.
