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?

Surprised with all the humor in this movie. Amusing movie with a few serious moments. i found it very predictable but fit in the Disney genre

Why do these producers and Directors ruin traditional Iconic TV/old traditional movies/shows and turn it into a digital computer generated film, with a few funny lines, that are familiar to the old story of the lone ranger. But at the end of the day i left the film saying to myself, can I even recommend that flick as a rental. As in Superman its all about the action and fights and virtually no meaningful story line.... Depp and Hammer are really good actors but is was like a corn ball movie...

This movie was pure entertainment. I agree with other reviews that it was a bit too Disney. That said: Johnny Depp was right on mark with his typical quirky characterization. Great special effects with the horse Silver. Awesome villain. And Armie was very well suited as the reluctant hero. While there was much action - a few places did drag. Do go see this and ignore the professional critics.

I am of the generation that watched the original TV series. I have a deep fondness for this character. It meant a lot to my developement as a child. DEPP made a parody of the character, much as Austin Powers vs James Bond. I hope Disney goes bankrupt from this cartoon. Horses running across the tops of moving trains. It was fitting that they had a scene where the Lone Ranger had his head dragged thru a pile of horse manure. They dragged the audience thru that same pile
