Synopsis

Box set featuring two swashbuckling adventure movies. In 'The Mask of Zorro' (1998), Don Diego de la Vega (Anthony Hopkins) is a swashbuckling legend, adopting the moniker Zorro and donning a mask in his fight against Spanish despots in Alta California. Twenty years after hanging up his sword, he needs to find a successor to gain revenge on Don Rafael Montero (Stuart Wilson), the tyrant who stole his wife and daughter (Catherine Zeta Jones) two decades ago. He selects the swarthy Alejandro (Antonio Banderas) as his protegé, but the unruly bandit needs some rough edges smoothed out before he can wield his blade on his teacher's behalf. In 'The Legend of Zorro' (2005), having spent the last ten years fighting injustice and cruelty, Zorro (Banderas) is now facing his greatest challenge: his wife Elena (Zeta-Jones) has thrown him out and found comfort in the arms of Count Armand (Rufus Sewell), a dashing French aristocrat. But Zorro knows something she doesn't: Armand is the mastermind behind an evil plot to destroy the United States. And so, with his marriage and his country's future at stake, it's up to Zorro to try to save two unions before it's too late.
