It is as bad as advertised. I fought off common sense to prove the critics wrong. Well, even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then. This movie is just terrible! I felt bad having spent the money to see this. However, I felt worse about myself for judging the knucklebutts in the theater cackling and laughing at this dog. These must be the same people that drive slow in the left lane and keep their left blinker on for miles. In a word, ARRRGGGGHHHH!!!!!

Really slow. Really bad. They made the Lone Ranger a total sissy. Tonto is a mess, is he funny or serious? Is this a comedy or action? And the story is so slow and dumb. Really bad.

This is by far the best movie we have seen this year. Excellent acting, breath taking scenery, great script. Loved the way story unfolded. This is a must see.

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.

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!
