The Lone Ranger was a great summer Movie to see. It is thoroughly entertaining and I enjoyed every minute of it. The movie did not parallel the characters in the original Lone Ranger television series but nonetheless it was action packed and very enjoyable. The acting was excellent, the directing and cinematography was excellent as well. The writing seemed to be geared for children as it was rated a PG-13 movie but while it was to violent a movie for children, it is an excellent movie for adults and be thoroughly entertained. I would definitely see this movie again.

It is as bad as advertised. I fought off common sense to prove the critics wrong. Well, even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then. This movie is just terrible! I felt bad having spent the money to see this. However, I felt worse about myself for judging the knucklebutts in the theater cackling and laughing at this dog. These must be the same people that drive slow in the left lane and keep their left blinker on for miles. In a word, ARRRGGGGHHHH!!!!!

Johnny Depp does a really good job putting life into Tonto's character, and plays him with a mix of seriousness and above all, fun. Depp has great lines, outstanding facial expressions and timing, and a good part to play. The screenwriter definitely liked him best. The story line deviates substantially from the original, confusing with lots of competing strings along the way. The Lone Ranger part was disappointing - hated to see that it was not done as a heroic figure, but as a spoof of that original character.. Silver is the star though - he had the best impossible and implausible action scenes, and he just kept showing up in most unusual situations. The (mostly) New Mexico scenery is amazing - good location shots - made you feel as if you were in the old west. A side problem is that since almost all of the bad guys wore scraggly beards, and the good guys just had neater beards, it wasn't always easy to tell the characters apart. Go see it. You'll have some fun with It.

If you liked the first Pirates movie you'll like this. Not for kiddies as it has quite a bit of killing but typical irreverent humor, lots of action. Fun.

I almost didn't go because of the movie review in the Boston Globe , but my son wanted to see it and we got a 2 for 1 deal so I said ok. If you grew up in the 50s -60s you might like it too! it was hilarious!! I like Johnny Depp and he totally becomes TONTO. It's not a great literary film but just a fun summer movie. It was definitely better than I expected.
