The Mask of Zorro (1998) 4K Review

Directed by: Martin Campbell

Starring: Antonio Banderas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Anthony Hopkins

Synopsis: Celebrating its 25th anniversary. 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 battle the tyrant’s unscrupulous plans. 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?

“A nobleman is nothing but a man, who says one thing and thinks another.”

The Mask of Zorro, directed by Martin Campbell and starring Antonio Banderas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Anthony Hopkins, was originally released in 1998 and has since become a classic in the adventure genre. Now, with the 4k release, the movie is even more breathtaking than before.

The 4k restoration has beautifully enhanced the stunning landscapes and elaborate costumes, making the movie visually stunning. The movie’s climactic action sequences, particularly the sword-fighting scenes, are even more exhilarating in 4k. The movie looks and feels like it was made yesterday, rather than being over 20 years old.

Beyond the visuals, the story of The Mask of Zorro is a timeless tale of revenge, bravery, and true love. The chemistry between Banderas and Zeta-Jones is palpable, and the scenes between the two are some of the movie’s highlights.


In short, The Mask of Zorro in 4k is a must-watch for fans of the genre, and anyone who enjoys a good adventure movie. It’s a timeless classic that is even better in 4k, making it an essential addition to any movie collection.
