a lusty and rousing adventure, zorro, a pop-fiction creation invented by johnston mcculley in 1918, is given new blood in this fast-moving and engaging version, which actually works as a sequel to the story line in the fairbanks-power saga, the mark of zorro. a self-assured anthony hopkins is don diego de la vega, a mexican freedom fighter captured and imprisoned just as spain concedes california to santa ana. twenty years later, he escapes from prison to face down his mortal enemy, a land grabbing governor played with slimy spitefulness by stuart wilson. too old to save the local peasants on his own, he trains bandito antonio banderas to take his place. much swashbuckling ensues as banderas woos catherine zeta-jones, becomes a better human being, and saves the disenfranchised rabble. --rochelle o'gorman, amazon.com

young indiana jones - daredevils of the desert - a great young indy episode, while not as good as treasure of the peacocks eye, i`d say its on par with phantom train. this episode had a real good bond feel to it, as indy makes his appearance dressed as an old man, engaging in amazing trickery which completely fools the germans, and wielding a gun which looks a lot like a ppk. all this is topped off by a spectacular fist fight, make this an action packed young indy episode, with , of course, the standard high production values, recommended.
