The "wraparound" story detracted from the film, and the movie itself had enough cheese to supply Taco Bell for a month, but neither of these things were enough to wreck the high entertainment value of the film. Lots of action and comedy. And the climactic scene with the Lone Ranger theme was chock full of classic high-adventure antics we've come to expect from Bruckheimer.

This movie was pure entertainment. I agree with other reviews that it was a bit too Disney. That said: Johnny Depp was right on mark with his typical quirky characterization. Great special effects with the horse Silver. Awesome villain. And Armie was very well suited as the reluctant hero. While there was much action - a few places did drag. Do go see this and ignore the professional critics.

Mostly a good movie! Lots of shoot 'em up (without all the blood and gore) and quirky, but a good way to spend an afternoon at a discounted price. The leading lady, Ruth Wilson, was not a good fit. Her lips were distracting....couldn't tell if they were implants or natural. I think anyone else would have been a better fit -everytime she came on the screen, it took my mind off the movie because I couldn't get past the upper lip. Really!!
Enjoyed Johnny Depp of course, knowing that these guys did a lot of their own riding and stunts was also fun to watch. There was a little lull in the movie, where you just wanted to say "ok, keep moving!" - but overall good, NOT great.

We really enjoyed this movie. It was funny and creative. The one liners were making everyone laugh out loud. It is lighthearted and takes you away from the everyday realities of our world. With all of the bad news we hear everyday, it's nice to be able to watch a movie that is just meant to entertain. I don't which character was funnier - Tonto or Silver. LOL. It is very different from the original "Lone Ranger", but when you realize that it is not meant to be, that it is just for fun, sit back, enjoy it, and have a good laugh..
