Consensus: Zorro can survive a lot of things, but it looks like he can't survive marriage.

Here is the perfect example of having a big budget, a big studio, and big actors, but it just doesn't work. I would like to say that I enjoyed 'The… More

This sequel should never have been made. You know, there are film series in which subsequent films get better (Godfather II may be best example), and there are… More

Certainly a lot better than I remember, but that's mainly due to the fact that Antonio Banderas does such a great job with the character. While this was… More
