The Mask of Zorro (1998)

The larger than life hero of the people fights a forgettable villain (with obligatory moustache) and woos a beautiful woman. Justice prevails.
The only genuinely unpredictable thing about the story is that no one hired Cheech to be a part of it. As contradictory as it is, if they had then I’d have at least been entertained by something beyond the fun swashbuckling characteristic that was a welcome throwback to a bygone era.
