Who was that Masked Man?
When a movie is way too long and you have to sit through a badly written script, then it makes every superfluous minute seem more unnecessary.
Additionally, making the character of the Lone Ranger a bumbling, nincompoop and Tonto a burned-out, mentally challenged outlaw just takes the "modern-day" duo much further away from original characters. What a dumb idea!
Outside from some enjoyable action scenes -- to few and too short -- the movie drags back and forth between a flash-back and an unnecessary narrative by an elderly Tonto. Other than giving Johnny Depp an opportunity to dress up in badly applied make-up designed to add decades to his age -- that form of telling the story was contrived and stupid.
Just make a good ol cowboy movie about The Long Ranger -- that would have been much more enjoyable and make me want to see a sequel -- not this weak excuse.
And, my popcorn was stale!
