If you hold the original to a high regard you won't like this but it was ok not great but I think it's worth a shot not sure if they will do a sequel but the door is open

Shame on Disney, I thought the worst movie they ever made was my favorite fairytale Beauty and the Beast. This is right up there with it. It's disrespectful of a legend I grew up with and enjoyed even though I'm female. It's usually males who like westerns. I'd rate minus 10 or don't bother.

Fighting evil on many different levels. On the plus side for me this movie was both a bit dark and had a quiet humor to it. On negative side the action sequences are a bit silly, and some of the narrative a cliche (on some levels). I did like that the rail road was not portrayed with the typical rah! rah! progress of America's manifest destiny. Not a total suck fest.

I decided to ignore the terrible reviews and check this out. Mistake. This is a shockingly bad movie. Do not waste the space for your hold items or your time. Sad to see 367 holds on this. Believe me, cancel your hold. Sadly our library will never get money back for the 86 copies it has.

Some Johnny Depp + Some spaghetti western makes this a brilliant movie. One to watch thru the eyes of a child as it was intended.

This movie is a train-wreck, but with loads of train wrecks! The symbolism is stunning! There was no reason for this movie to be two and a half hours long. Please god, someone get Gore Verbinski an editor! There's not enough story for this - the Ranger's story could have been told in 15 minuets. He wants to bring his brother's killers to justice, and the murder happens 40-ish minuets into the movie! The action sequences just go on and on and on forever. And it's not The Lone Ranger. This is Tonto: The movie. Tonto gets all the back story, all the exposition, all the flashbacks, all the character development. The Ranger gets none of development! Although it's understandable why they leaned so hard on Depp - the Ranger is a terrible character - he's a two-dimensional milksop, he's a worthless idiot- he is NOT a hero. There's no real progression or development. You don't CARE about the Ranger! That's unforgivable! There's no chemistry between the Ranger and Tonto. They're only together because Silver the Spirit Horse chose him. Even worse - they actively don't like each other! That's not right! And it's so violent! Look, I'm not a prude, but the Bad Guy cuts out The Brother's heart and EATS it. Sure we see it in a reflection, but man this is straight out of Friday the 13th 9 - the is closest Disney has ever come to an R. Or the part with the heads - a couple of Goon Mooks are (accidentally) killed by the Ranger by having their heads crushed by a giant support beam. A dude gets shot in the eye by an arrow through his hand! I'm trying to figure out which movie is more disrespectful to the character: what Man of Steel did to Superman or what this movie did to the Lone Ranger.

Bad slapstick humor interspersed with genuinely disturbing, non-kid-friendly scenes (cannibalism!), plus both leads seeming kind of unheroic and not very bright in most cases, does not make for a very good movie. Attach an old-time, traditional heroic character like th Lone Ranger to this mishmash, and you have a thoroughly bad idea. They should have leaned more towards the feel of Joe Johnston's Captain America (traditional hero in a traditional adventure story, but smart enough for a contemporary audience) and less towards Verbinski's Pirates of the Caribbean (post-modern, spooky action-comedy for the post-Internet generation). Long live Clayton Moore.

Since when do six-shooters carry sixty bullets? Tanto's 80 foot jump onto rocks and he is ok? Too ridiculous. I guess this is supposed to be a kids movie but I don't think they know who The Lone Ranger is. They should of made this movie for adults because Disney has become really awful. All the funny parts were at the begining and the story was predictable. I only gave 3 star because johnny Depp's performance was good as usual. So was the lead actor but they made him look like such a wimp.

Told in a non-linear format, The Lone Ranger was much more fun and campy than I imagined. It might not be what you expect, but it was a lot of fun.

The cg effects were a bit weak; but, overall I enjoyed this better than I expected.

Tonto (spying Silver on a tree branch, wearing the Lone Ranger's cowboy hat): "...Something very wrong with that horse..."

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.
