Great Adventure Movie,
Ce commentaire est de: Mask of Zorro (VHS Tape)This sucessful rendition of Zorro`s story is a truly convincing and engaging blockbuster, showing the best qualities so rarely seen in action-adventure movies nowadays. Martin Campbell treats the material with care and respect, never dumbing it down into utterly childish stuff and creating an acessible, enrergetic entertainment that satisfies both kids and adults alike.
Antonio Banderas plays a credible Zorro, Catherine Zeta-Jones shines as his love interest and Anthony Hopkins is a menacing and adequate antagonist. The action sequences are well-done, being suspenseful and exciting enough and not too forced, overlong or tiresome. The script is simple but well-written, and given that the movie is convincing as a whole one can forgive some predictable moments.
So, this is a fun, solid picture, a good blockbuster that rises above most examples of the genre. Consistent entertainment.
