The Mask of Zorro (1998)
Director: Martin Campbell
Cast: Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta Jones, Stuart Wilson
In 1820, the Mexican Army is on the verge of liberating its country from Spanish colonial rule. In the area of present-day California, the cruel and ruthless Spanish Governor Don Rafael Montero (Wilson) is about to be overthrown by the advancing Mexican Army. In a last ditch effort to trap his arch-nemesis, the masked swordsman Zorro, Montero lays a trap by condemning three innocent men to death. The trap is thwarted with assistance from the local peasant population, who see Zorro as their champion. Particularly helpful were two orphan brothers, Joaquin and Alejandro Murrieta. Zorro then lands in front of Montero and cuts a "Z" into his neck as a reminder to never return to California.
