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

Between The Mask of Zorro (1998) and this film, Zorro changed his name from Alejandro Murrieta to Alejandro de la Vega. Not only is de la Vega a respectable surname which would make it easier to enter high society, but Murrieta was a wanted criminal so using that name would be counterproductive. See more »

Goofs

Zorro squeezes the priest's cross with his right hand; when the camera angle changes he holds it with his left hand. See more »

Quotes

Makes up a bogieman for the bad guy
26 August 2006 | by phil-1076See all my reviews

While fighting for freedom is all well and good, fabricating a "confederate" army in 1850 makes the movie seem like it's in a parallel universe. If this were sci-fi that would be OK, but the whole thing was so silly that I couldn't take anything else in the movie very seriously. This was too bad, since the action sequences and the chemistry between Zeta and Banderas was nice. The first Zorro movie also had some historical inaccuracies, but so obscure that it was no big deal. Especially annoying were the typical confederate stooge-types working for the bad guy. I know Hollywood hardly ever gets history right, but rarely does it get history so wrong.
