Legend of Zorro

I saw "The Legend of Zorro" last night on a sneak preview ticket. The movie itself doesn't open until October 28. The security at the theater was so tight that it was worse than going through the airport. A terrorist couldn't get into the movie!

As for the movie itself, it's pretty silly, but it is all mindless fun. A couple of friends who went with me didn't like it that much, but I said, "What were you expecting? It's Zorro!" It's like trying to get meaninful messages from Batman or Spider-Man.

Admittedly, some of the stunts didn't make logical sense, but that's not the point. It was all like a James Bond film with handsome Antonio Banderas and beautiful Catherine Zeta-Jones reprising their roles from the first film. I liked it better than the first one (with Anthony Hopkins), and as far as Zorro films go, it rivals the Tyrone Power version for action and fun.

Highly recommended.
