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.

The character building was rather weak and Johnny Deps role, while interesting, was just not on par with all the hype selling the previews. Arme Hammers role was definitely weak and not at all up to the caliber of a co-leading man. All in all...... disappointing with mild moments of Johnny Dep humor, but not near enough to carry this movie. Advise you save your money and get the video for $4,00 to watch. Uggh!

Didn't understand the press panning the movie until I had the misfortune to watch it.
What strange medication was the director under the influence of to think that the Lone Ranger should be played as a buffoon through most of the movie.
The movie had a potential to be a great Summer blockbuster; instead it only proved to be a big waste of film....

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..

Not sure why there were so many negative reviews. We brought the family including two boys under 10 and had a great time. Movie buffs will appreciate the subtle (and not so subtle) nods to the Pirates of the Caribbean series. But I think the movie holds it's own as a fun summer Big Movie. Plot holes? Yes. Improbable outcomes and scenarios? Of course. Just like in any Bond film. But on the whole a big, fun summer movie. Time to feed the crow!
