About The Lone Ranger
From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski, the filmmaking team behind the blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, comes Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ “The Lone Ranger,” a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.
Summer was the perfect release date for this action packed story that many know and love. The Lone Ranger is movie is jammed packed with stunts and action. There are very few quiet moments in the film making it a great escape from the long summer days. I was so excited for this movie, but I have to be honest and say I may have set my expectations a tiny bit too high. While still enjoyable in many ways (mainly thanks to Jonny Depp) even though it closely follows the plot lines of the original Lone Ranger series, this movie is more reminiscent of Bruckheimer’s Pirates movies. Regardless it was a fun summer flick that many are sure to enjoy. I certainly enjoyed a few laughs while watching it. I couldn’t help but find a few stand out characters in the film as well!
3 Stand Out Characters from The Lone Ranger:
This horse was so well trained, super silly, and provided a lot of much needed humor for this film. The horse really does steal the show at moments throughout the movie!
Johnny Depp aka Tonto:
If you love Johnny Depp you will love this film. His character while reminiscent of Captain Jack Sparrow, is funny, witty, and provides a lot of humor to this movie. I would venture as far to say he carries much of the movie and keeps the audience engaged.
Helena Bonham Carter/Red:
Helena Bonham Carter did a fantastic job in this movie adding just the perfect amount of sass. Her ivory leg is a scene stealer for sure!
It should be noted that the PG-13 rating is there for a reason as the movie in my opinion is not for children. Yes, it is being released on this 4th of July weekend, but it is not a movie to round up the kids and escape the heat with. While it is funny in places, there is also a lot of violence, blood, death, and strong adult themes. Until your child is old enough to understand these things, you should probably just consider this an adults only film.
Do you plan on seeing the Lone Ranger?
I attended an advance screening of this movie in exchange for my honest review.
