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" :)

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!

Don't know why it's been getting such bad reviews; it was such a great mix of innuendos & slapstick added to excitement & danger. Maybe you have to have the kind of sense of humor for it. I'd see it again. With all the wonderful special effect techniques these days it just adds to the thrill. I think kids over 10 would be okay to watch and probably would get some of the more subtle humor.

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.
