Having done a rewatch of the Sony Zorro duology recently, I don't think The Legend of Zorro is a bad film at all.
Well, it's overrated. I'll give you that.I remember the hype over the first one and I was so disappointed. Great ideas, great visuals, poor execution.
Quite right and it's worth knowing that Cameron's Avatar follow up Alita: Battle Angel (which he wrote and produced than directed it since it was directed by Robert Rodriguez) is more popular with his fanbase and that they would rather want a sequel to Alita than a sequel to Avatar.I'm not exactly excited about them but I'm curious, and I think people who are dismissing it as Cameron's folly should give pause given that he has, twice, made hugely expensive films that were dismissed before going on to become the highest grossing film of all time.
I thought it was already surpassed by the recent MCU films, especially with the motion capture aspect for Infinity War and Endgame.Both of those two movies were also pretty revolutionary whilst capping off their respective decades. With Avatar, it was apparently a technical feat in filmmaking that people believe have yet to be surpassed in the booming blockbuster market. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is the new benchmark.
