Going in I knew the critics did not favour The Lone Ranger, so I watched it closely. Put me in a minority, I really liked it. One critic I admire, Steven Greydanus, see decentfilms.com, thinks that the legend of the Lone Ranger is not paid due respect here since this LR does not come off as outstandingly heroic. He also despairs that the film mocks almost everything - the US, the US military, the Presbyterians, native spirituality, and so forth. I believe he is correct to a certain degree; however, I think the film can be interpreted differently. The LR is noble to begin with. He refuses to carry a gun, believing that justice comes from the law court and not vengeful murder. He fights for the the safety of women and children, recognizes the equality of the Indian with the white man, and is respectful even to the madam of a bordello. He grows into his hero persona in a mystical way with the aid of a rather magical horse and an uncanny ability to ride and shoot - when he finally does pick up a gun. The movie may mock many things, but ultimately it is mocking them because they are not living up to what they ought to be. Spoiler Alert. If the military is blindly cutting down the natives, if the authorities are in league with the villain, if industry is run corruptly, then it must be challenged. The LR is unwittingly nieve to the corruption, and many things, but when he discovers it, he fights it, for the sake of honour, truth and virtue. Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp pair very well and are quite funny. Gore Verbinski has left his Pirates of the Carribbean mark on the film in many ways. Depp fidgets with a pocket watch in this film as much as he does a compass in Pirates. Butch Cavendish's motley crew of bandits are very much like the odd crew of the Black Pearl. The whole film, like Pirate's, is epic, magical and imaginative. Every frame is shot with intention and has effect. Take note of the scene where the LR briefly comes out of unconsciousness to witness the brutality of the villain. You can see the villain's actions, too horrific for us to look at directly, reflected in the LR's eye. The film is worth watching. Enjoy!

Not the best film in the world, it's a very slow movie, but worth watching if just for the train scene at the end! Very, very funny!

The lack of continuity really irked me. For example, Tonto mentions refrigeration and the soldiers use machine guns.

Don"t believe the bad comments. I would recommend this film and tell others too try it for themselves!

Not sure why it was so maligned...maybe because I don't have as much familiarity with Johnny Depp in his Pirates role than others who have commented?

I agree with all comments here: I wouldn't recommend it; it would better be named "Capt. Jack goes Indian"; (which probably is an improvement over yet another pirates movie), it was watchable, it had funny moments, it made the point - there are other points of view in history, or even icons.

Ok I get that this wasnt the Lone Ranger story we grew up and is in fact a newly done remake, but my issue is with Johnny Depp's portrayal of Tonto, and how it comes off as a Captain Jack knockoff. Is no reflection on Depp because he's a terrific actor, but I felt the director and writers shouldve stuck to the traditional way Tonto has been depicted. The plus is that it's a western tale and I love westerns, and the Lone Ranger is a favorite of mine, but the whole supernatural element left me lost. Anyhow if you enjoy this sort of thing, you could do worse.

Long, boring, and fails in almost every way. Yes, a few fun "Captain Jack" moments, which seemed completely out of place in this story but otherwise not worth your time.

Tonto: [translating "kemosabe"] Wrong brother.

Latham Cole: I want to show you something. From the time of Alexander the Great, no man could travel faster than a horse that carried him. Not anymore. Imagine; time and space, under the mastery of man, power makes emperors and kings... look like fools. Whoever controls this, controls the future.
