I will go ahead and assume that I am not the only one who thought: who owed Armie Hammer a favor and put him in this movie? He has no charisma and isn't funny. His acting was stiff and not engaging at all. Johnny Depp wasn't all that, either, but without him I would have walked out after the first hour. The story was lame, and I just hope that they don't make a sequel. It is also very long, so I can't see kids sitting through the whole disaster.
The end was the best part of the movie, but in this case quite literally the end did NOT justify the means.

Johnny Depp does a really good job putting life into Tonto's character, and plays him with a mix of seriousness and above all, fun. Depp has great lines, outstanding facial expressions and timing, and a good part to play. The screenwriter definitely liked him best. The story line deviates substantially from the original, confusing with lots of competing strings along the way. The Lone Ranger part was disappointing - hated to see that it was not done as a heroic figure, but as a spoof of that original character.. Silver is the star though - he had the best impossible and implausible action scenes, and he just kept showing up in most unusual situations. The (mostly) New Mexico scenery is amazing - good location shots - made you feel as if you were in the old west. A side problem is that since almost all of the bad guys wore scraggly beards, and the good guys just had neater beards, it wasn't always easy to tell the characters apart. Go see it. You'll have some fun with It.

I liked the movie though it was nothing like the old time Lone Ranger. There were a lot of laughs which I go to the movies mainly for.

If you liked the first Pirates movie you'll like this. Not for kiddies as it has quite a bit of killing but typical irreverent humor, lots of action. Fun.

We loved it; we laughed and we reminisced. So you can tell our ages.
It was violent but CLEAN; no unnecessary sex and none or very little dirty language.
