Default The Mask of Zorro

The Mask of Zorro was the King of DVD when it first arrived..it was the first real reference dvd for it's audio and video, a few years later it was the star of Superbit dvds..and then it's 1080i telecast on CBS in 2002 was to die for

Now it is available in BD and unfortunately the King has lost some of it's luster..the video quality is excellent at times but there are too many soft spots and signs of aging that a good remaster can clean up, so somewhere down the road I'm sure we will see that..all in all it looks damn good

the audio is outstanding..everything that made this the demo dvd of it's time has been further enhanced here with the use of a dts hd soundtrack..the sounds of flamenco dancers footsteps ,the swordplay,the explosions and the beautiful background music are fantastic, the dialogue is so very crisp and clear and never gets drowned out by the action, rear speakers are very active through out the movie..you would be hard pressed to find a live action movie that sounds better.{let's leave the big CGI and overdone SE movies out please}


still a fun movie,a good time for all

is the King dead...not just yet...a little aged and beat up..but then again Muhammed Ali couldn't last forever either

It was remastered three years ago. The image is rather remarkable, and yes, age has taken it's toll, but that was bound to be the case. I say, it looks better than The Legend of Zorro.

While the picture generally looks good, I was expected more fine detail than I saw and the colors were a bit more muted than I expected, however as a whole, it's a nice transfer.

As for the audio, I was a bit less impressed than I'd thought i'd be. While the quite moments revealed fine detail, however the active moments came through a little muddled to me.

It doesn't look like HDD got to it yet... this past December was insane with the amount of titles that came out.
