ZORRO (Theatrical Release Italy 1975)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.6|5.0 Starsìì

—is what it is, a film that could have been so good, but completely misses the mark—has lots of hype. with no delivery. After seeing Antonio Banderas and Anthony Hopkins in the Mask of Zorro (1998) this movie appears to be a high budget school project that could never go to theaters. Surprisingly, it did go to theaters even though the choreography is not up to par and the acting is below three stars. The storyline is unclear due to its lack of highlighting and directing the audience to what is and what is not important. It does not deserve a watch.
