Not What I Expected From watching the trailers. Deep plot with some twist, Some Scenes Too Intense for small children, See "PG-13 Rating" NOT your standard Disney Movie, But I Liked It.

I'm confused by the critics reviews. Apparently they saw a different movie.
The Lone Ranger movie is the story of how and why the Ranger and Tonto started their famous partnership, and what motivates each character. I felt the storyline did justice to the original series, capturing the essence of the tv show. Yes Tonto had a bigger part in the movie, but it did not take away from the part of the Lone Ranger. If Tonto (Depp) hadn't had a lot to say, I'm sure fans would have been disappointed. There was quite a bit of gun violence in the movie, but it is a western folks! There were no huge special effects that we usually see these days, which was fine with me; we don't need everything blowing up every 10 minutes. This was not a movie for small kids; I believe it was aimed at those of us (big kids) who watched the tv series as children. Not sure if there's enough here to make a "franchise" out of this, but I would pay to see a sequel. Love to see more Depp, more "Silver" :)

Fans at our showing didn't agree with the critics - the viewers clapped and cheered. Three sold out screens Sunday afternoon opening weekend despite the negative press.

take a hero and give it a modernized slant and you have a thoroughly entertaining action adventure western, that keeps you captivated and chuckling in 2.5 hours of pure entertainment. I cannot wait for the sequel. Johnnioe Depp is a brilliant tonto and Armie Hammer is great as the initially bumbling foil ranger. Wow! I really enjoyed it and did not want it to end. #d would have been nice!

This movie was outstanding! It was not what I expected at all, yet I was very pleasantly surprised. It has absolutely the story line it should have. It has lots of action for those who love that kind of movie without seeming like it is just there to gain fans. It is not for those with a weak stomach. Part of what makes it good is they portray it just as it truly would have been - Bad guy is a BAD GUY! Johnny Depp is again perfect as Tonto, but movie would not have been terrible without him. MUSIC IS OUTSTANDING!
