The Lone Ranger

Never Take Off the Mask


The Lone Ranger
This is a Disney/Bruckheimer production, so it's aimed at a particularly demographic. They're hoping to launch a new franchise to replace Pirates, and have chosen to reboot an American TV series from way back when. The story is told from the viewpoint of the official hero's sidekick, and is how a lawyer becomes a masked avenger to fight crime and corruption in the Old West. The critics were generally unimpressed.

148 minutes.
Parental Guidance 10-12 (Violence).
Action, Adventure, Western.

What the Critics say

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote icon familiar notes of Mr. Tell's Overture, you'll have to be a stick in the mud not to be swept up in the moment. While I would have preferred the overall flick to have possessed more of that aura throughout, or at least passed through the editing bay a few times to trim some of the excess cinematic fat, this turns out to be a decent reintroduction to the character.

Tomatometer quote iconArmie 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.
