An idealistic lawyer, he rides with his brother and fellow Texas Rangers in pursuit of the notorious Butch Cavendish. Ambushed by the outlaw and left for dead, John Reid is rescued by the renegade Comanche, Tonto, at the insistence of a mysterious white horse and offers to help him to bring Cavendish to justice. Becoming a reluctant masked rider with a seemingly incomprehensible partner, Reid pursues the criminal against all obstacles. However, John and Tonto learn that Cavendish is only part of a far greater injustice and the pair must fight it in an adventure that would make them a legend.
Plot: The Texas Rangers chase down a gang of outlaws led by Butch Cavendish, but the gang ambushes the Rangers, seemingly killing them all. One survivor is found, however, by an American Indian named Tonto, who nurses him back to health. The Ranger, donning a mask and riding a white stallion named Silver, teams up with Tonto to bring the unscrupulous gang and others of that ilk to justice.

It loses its way a bit at around the midway point, but all in all ‘The Lone Ranger’ is a film I found entertainment in.
No doubt helped by much of the people behind 2003’s ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl’ – my favourite film – reuniting for this. From Johnny Depp to Gore Verbinski to Jerry Bruckheimer to Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio. Therefore, I was bound to like it.
Depp is enjoyable, as is usually the case. There are, of course, question marks as to whether he’s ‘right’ for the role. He claims he has Native American heritage, though you enter a real grey area with all that stuff. Anyway, judging by his acting, he’s fun. Armie Hammer is much better than I thought he’d be, while William Fichtner makes for a good villain. Nice to see Ruth Wilson and Helena Bonham Carter involved, also.
I like the way the story is told, involving Depp and Mason Cook. It certainly adds a sense of intrigue to events. The end scenes are also enjoyable, at least visually – I don’t love the score all that much, to be honest. However, as noted at the top, the middle part of the film is less entertaining – though the finale helps pick things back up.
I’ve, evidently, seen better from these lot. Still, it’s a very good film in my books; despite having issues.
(I wrote a very long and comprehensive review about this but I lost it in a browser crash so we’ll have to make do with just one paragraph).
Watching _The Lone Ranger_, every now and then, I could genuinely see the spark of a good movie trying its darndest to shine through. With a lot of changes, (foremost amongst them, a change of cast in the two leads) this might have been something special, I really can see how it could have been. But that wasn’t the movie we got. We got this, and it is very disappointing.
_Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
Not only the Magic, but explains the Magic
It wasn’t hard to outdo the preachy contrived plot of the 2003 Ranger movie, but this one took a step beyond to become a mainstay.
First, it is an adventure film, a Western adventure. The Lone Ranger is a mystique character, and part of the challenge is that he tries to bring men to justice alive. Same for Superman. If they didn’t have this challenge, they would have no conflict whatsoever. It makes for a puzzle.
Tonto takes center stage here, but unlike the 2003 disaster, he is a character instead of a symbol of a godlike race. Here, no favorites are played. The most evil ones in this story are a pair of white men, and other white men they enlist, but we aren’t given sermons about this.
Depp is great as Tonto. The museum scenes are a bit too much for me, but it is good for the kids. The out of sequence bits work, partly because they aren’t emphasized too much. Depp, as Tonto, craftily plays this with a subtle humor, and that is just what is needed for this.
There is the magic and mystique of the Ranger, but also an explanation given for it, as “Nature out of balance”. We are dealing with a supernatural chain of events which do allow the Lone Ranger to ride a horse through and on top of railroad cars.
Great blend of humor and adventure, and at the same time a crafty blend of Shakespeare and Indiana Jones. This is better than what meets the eye, and what meets the eye is extra special in itself, with plenty of eye candy for men and women.
Worth the wait
I was a little disappointed about the critics’ review of the movie, since I adore Johnny Depp and had been waiting for the movie to release for months. I was pleasantly surprised. The movie was lovely. It had action (as promised), a good plot and pretty generous doses of humor for a movie of this genre. Depp stole the show with his portrayal of Tonto, but the other actors were great as well. The obvious comparison of this movie is with the Pirates of the Caribbean series because of Verbinski and Depp. There were parts of the movie, especially those where Tonto’s actions generated laughs from the theater, which reminded me of the latter. Both have Depp in eccentric roles which provide ample comic relief. But since the themes are completely different, I feel that a comparison is not exactly fair. All in all, it is a good, lighthearted, entertaining way to spend two and a half hours, and I am considering hitting the theater for it again soon.
