When a power-crazed despot schemes to buy California from Mexico, it takes two Zorros--the legendary Don Diego de la Vega (Anthony Hopkins) and his chosen successor Alejandro Murrieta (Antonio Banderas), a dashing bandit-turned-hero-- to defeat the tyrant's unscrupulous plans. But can even their combined skills, bravado and derring-do be enough to achieve de la Vega's ultimate goal: revenge against the man who killed his wife, kidnapped his daughter and held him prisoner for twenty years?

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Mask of Zorro is a 1998 action movie in which Anthony Hopkins plays the aging legendary swashbuckling hero. Unsurprisingly, there is quite a bit of sword fighting and swashbuckling. Some of the sword violence is comedic in the form of pratfalls and debonair one-liners. There is also fighting with guns, rifles, knives, and dynamite. A woman is shot and killed. Peasants are enslaved in a gold mine -- they are shown whipped, beaten, and kept in cages. One of the bad guys keeps a decapitated head in a glass container as well as a severed hand in a glass bowl. Zorro hits a large man in the head repeatedly with two cannonballs until he spits out his teeth and dies. During a sword fight, a woman's top is sliced off; her hair strategically covers her breasts. Brief male nudity, nonsexual: A group of men fighting Zorro end up tied up with their pants down, buttocks exposed. There is cigarette smoking and some drinking: One of the lead characters is shown drunk in a saloon mourning his brother's death. Wine and tequila drinking at social functions. "Damn" is heard.
