Zorro flashes once more

|Mask of Zorro |
BACK in the days when I was a kid in short trousers, Zorro was also known as "The Gay Blade".
Now I think if you were to refer to Antonio Banderas in such a way, he might attempt to run you through with the aforesaid weapon.
Catherine Zeta-Jones, on the other hand, would no doubt consult her husband and then her lawyers before having it all pictured for a magazine.
Whatever my ramblings, the pair are re-united with Mask of Zorro director Martin Campbell in Columbia Pictures' epic adventure The Legend of Zorro.
The year is 1850 and our swashbuckling crusader is challenged by the most dangerous mission of his life.
After fighting to help California become the 31st state of the Union, Zorro (Banderas) must live up to the promise he made his wife Elena (Zeta-Jones) - to give up his secret identity and live a normal life as Alejandro de la Vega.
When he hesitates, it threatens to tear them apart.
Now, the same forces that conspired to keep California from becoming part of the United States are plotting to unleash a threat that has been 500 years in the making, a threat that could change the course of history forever.
And only Zorro can stop it. Exciting isn't it?
