I do bot know what movie the critics were watching but this movie was sensational. It was full of action, great wit and comedy in between the action. I would highly recommend seeing this movie - one of the best I have seen this summer

My sons and I went and Depp was awesome as ever. It was a really good movie and actually had a great story and we all loved it!!!! The whole theatre busted out laughing every time Tonto interacted with Silver. It is not a typical "Disney" movie as it has a lot of violence and death in it but nothing worse than you would see on TV.

Finally saw The Lone Ranger on an airplane trip. Wasn't terrible but not very good. An odd mix of cardboard characters, impossible action scenes, the occasional attempt to be serious and meaningful along with some sly humor. Used a narrative style that was clunky and may have been added to (try to) hide the lapses in the plot. Target audience probably 10-year old boys. It didn't help that English was coming out of the left headphone and Spanish the right, but I don't think it made much difference either.

The title "Lone Ranger" is misleading -- it should be titled "Tonto." If you're a Johnny Depp fan (and who isn't?), this is a must-see movie. Armie Hammer (of "2081") certainly does a fine job as the Lone Ranger, but it's really more of a supporting role. Depp is the main man throughout (and that's not a bad thing).
Don't let the 149-minute run-time put you off. There's plenty of action to keep things moving along, and the time passes faster than you might think. Excitement, adventure, humor, great scenery and special effects -- and the inimitable Johnny Depp doing what he does best. What more could you ask for in a summer movie?
