Storyline

The Legendary Zorro goes off on another adventure to protect the future of California and its citizens. This time, he fights against evil-doers with the help of his beautiful wife, Elena, and their precocious young son, Joaquin. Alejandro De LaVega is torn between two worlds: his life as Zorro and his life as a family man. After Alejandro once again breaks his promise to stop wearing the mask, Elena leaves him, and soon begins seeing Armand, a haughty French Count. But a mysterious explosion in the desert leads Zorro to believe that there's more to Armand than meets the eye, and our hero is intent on finding out what that is. Little does he know, there are others working to uncover certain truths as well. Written by amneris21

Trivia

The sequel went through many titles. It was originally called "The Mask Of Zorro 2" and then that title was changed to "Zorro Unmasked" which had been the original script title by Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio. After their script was not used the title went to "Zorro 2" then to "The Return Of Zorro" before Sony pictures finally settled on the title "Legend Of Zorro". See more »

Goofs

After Elena uncouples the train cars, a head-on shot shows the rear end of the car she rides on, including the real cut lever - indicating the lever she just pulled is actually useless. See more »

Lacking Forsure...
16 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

This has to be one of the worst movies of all time and you are wasting your money to go see it like I did. There was one good thing about the movie was the fact that they have one of the hottest actresses ever playing one of the lead roles which makes it a 1/10 instead of a 0/10.

I believe that this movie was just another remake of the story of Zorro that we all know.

I also don't believe that the acting was that great, but they tried their best so I guess its OK! Do yourself a favour and stay in or if you do go to the movies try something quite better like Saw 2 or HP which comes out this Friday :D.
