Carlos Aceves is in attending studies in 1846 Madrid, when he receives news that the Yanquis have taken over Monterrey. Disguised as an old man, he travels to California and Monterrey as quickly as possible. When he finally arrives home he hears that his father’s been arrested by the invasive American troops. In order to free his father and help the town’s people he uses the disguise of “El Lobo Negro” (The Black Wolf) and dedicates himself to free each and every one of his father’s friends who have been apprehended as conspirators against the invaders. His main antagonist is the American Colonel who is head of the military who has instigated this misery. This gives way to some exciting adventures and challenges in which the “Black Wolf” shows his athleticism and ingenuity. Tranquility when the colonel is transferred to a different post. It’s all been seen before in any Zorro film but the fun part with this film is to see and recognize the old familiar faces of the Spanish character actors appearing here, who were big names in the golden age of the Spaghetti Western.
