MASK OF ZORRO, THE
Reviewed November 10th, 1999 by Staff
The Mask of Zorro is a delightful tale of Zorro the masked bandit. He who fights for the common man! With a cast like Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones it is no wonder why this movie attracts both sexes. The story is also entertaining for children, a little for everyone in this fantastic epic tale of Zorro, Spaniards only movie hero. The tale starts out with Anthony Hopkins playing Don Diego de la Vega. The first Zorro you are presented with a man who had a comfortable living, a family, and befriended the evil Montero. The tale continues on to the passing of the baton or should we say mask and sword to a new generation and teaching the new Zorro how to keep from becoming 6 feet under. An amusing story that the family will enjoy.
The video transfer on The Mask of Zorro is remarkable. This little DVD sits in the rankings of the top 10 DVD’s to date. You have superb color that is never over saturated or lacking in darkness. Combine this with a widescreen version that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and is anamorphic, what more can you ask for! Well DONE Columbia-Tristar!
The Audio is just as remarkable as the video transfer. You will be delighted with a Dolby Digital 5.1 Transfer that is so active it will have your head turning to see who or what is to the side of you or behind you! The sound is so crisp and clean and accurate that within the first 30 seconds of the movie you are entranced.
The extra’s to this movie include theatrical trailers, a photo gallery and the making of featurette. While not overly extensive it has at least a couple of the basics that make up a great DVD. Overall this is a great movie that is well put together and can be found at a great price, usually under $20. Add this to your collection today!
