      What to know

      Critics Consensus

      Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp make for an appealing pair of leads, but they're not enough to make up for The Lone Ranger's bland script, bloated length, and blaring action overkill. Read critic reviews

      Movie Info

      In 1933 a boy discovers an ancient Native American in a sideshow carnival tent. The Indian is Tonto (Johnny Depp), the old companion of John Reid (Armie Hammer), a lawman more famously known as the Lone Ranger. With this opportunity to set the record straight about his and Reid's adventures, Tonto recalls the day in 1869 when he first encountered the man who would be his trusted friend and tells of their teamwork bringing down Butch Cavendish (William Fichtner) and other Old West outlaws.

        (I wrote a very long and comprehensive review about this but I lost it in a browser crash so we'll have to make do with just one paragraph). Watching The Lone Ranger, every now and then, I could genuinely see the spark of a good movie trying its darndest to shine through. With a lot of changes, (foremost amongst them, a change of cast in the two leads) this might have been something special, I really can see how it could have been. But that wasn't the movie we got. We got this, and it is very disappointing.

        enjoyed it more than i thought i would. genuinely funny moments mostly thanks to johnny depp being cast as the native american. the horse had more of a central role than the ranger!

        While beautifully filmed and with great effects, this remake of the classic TV show suffers from a really long first act. Shortened by about 20 minutes this would have been a much leaner film. It also does not always find the right tone between its silliness and the violence. The great and fun showdown redeems some of that. If only the film had more of that over the top comic action.

        The action scenes were well done, and I enjoyed Johnny Depp's acting, but I didn't like the story. For instance, if you are going to native legends to raise the dead, then make the rest of the movie honour native legends - plus if they are just building a railroad, there is not going to be two parallel tracks for the dueling trains scenes at the end of the movie.
