The Mask of Zorro gets a Limited Edition 4K Ultra HD SteelBook in celebration of the film’s upcoming 25th anniversary in July.
This is a placeholder for my formal review as the review copy of the new 4K UHD SteelBook is set to arrive today. My plan is to watch the film at my soonest convenience and replace this placeholder with the formal review. Much like Air Force One, this is another case in which the film is featured with Dolby Vision.
The Mask of Zorro earned Oscar nominations for both Sound Mixing and Sound Editing. That was the year in which the film was up against Saving Private Ryan so it didn’t have much of a chance.
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?
