Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

George Hamilton hams it up shamelessly playing the legendary Zorro's twin sons - one a dashing, macho sword-fighter, the other a limp-wristed queen - in a witless swashbuckling parody. When villainous Ron Liebman threatens the peace of a Mexican village, both brothers swish into action and the cheap laughs come thin and slow. Even the set piece of everyone turning up at a masked ball disguised as Zorro is off-handedly thrown away by director Peter Medak who clearly doesn't have a clue when it comes to comedy.
