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...

I was hilarious I loved it. I love Johnny Depps character, and the guy that played the lone ranger I liked too, I'd only seen him in one other movie but he did a great job with this character. I would recommend seeing it......

I had high expectations when I went to see the Lone Ranger last night. But while the movie was not bad, it was not great either. The last 20 minutes are the best in the whole movie. The story seemed realy disjointed. It's told to a young boy by an elderly Tonto who is now in a carnival side-show. Some parts of the movie don't flow well and some things aren't explained well. For example, the Lone Ranger is a lawyer fresh out of law school from back East. Yet he rides Silver like a trained stuntman. At least they did get the reason of how the name Lone Ranger came about. Johnny Depp seems to be playing Tonto like Jack Sparrow. His walk is the same and his mannerisms are the same.
I'd give it an 8 out of 10, mainly because of the last 20 minutes being heep fun. Good for the whole family.

Mostly a good movie! Lots of shoot 'em up (without all the blood and gore) and quirky, but a good way to spend an afternoon at a discounted price. The leading lady, Ruth Wilson, was not a good fit. Her lips were distracting....couldn't tell if they were implants or natural. I think anyone else would have been a better fit -everytime she came on the screen, it took my mind off the movie because I couldn't get past the upper lip. Really!!
Enjoyed Johnny Depp of course, knowing that these guys did a lot of their own riding and stunts was also fun to watch. There was a little lull in the movie, where you just wanted to say "ok, keep moving!" - but overall good, NOT great.
