In 16th century Spain, Don Francisco reluctantly betroths his daughter, Blanca, to the arrogant Don Ramiro in order to preserve the lands in the family estate. Then Don Juan, Don Francisco's nephew and Blanca's true love, returns from the war in Flanders. Don Juan dons a mask and joins with a gypsy band led by Estella to fight against the forces of Don Ramiro. In this effort he's aided by a bare-chested muscleman and also by Captain Blasco who works for Don Ramiro but whose sympathies lie elsewhere. Written by

By the way, I wish you'd bring me that masked rider, for my wedding present.
We search for him all the time, but he's like a phantom.

What is Hercules doing in 16th century California? Nothing much.
This is indeed a Zorro film (spelled Zoro on a wanted poster at one point in the picture); the strong man is really Goliath, which is partly a reference to the legendary giant, but is really merely a signifier for "big strong guy."
Overwrought formula actioner. The film-making is by the numbers, the acting is competent at best. The plot is confusing, the action okay but nothing special; but the real problem, obviously, is that the filmmakers don't know what kind of movie they want to make.
Saturday afternoon hangover fodder. May give you something to do if you have nothing to do. Otherwise, ho hum when not just bad.
