Product Description

Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer star in this action Western from Walt Disney Pictures, directed and co-produced by Gore Verbinski. Native American Tonto (Depp) tells the story of how lawman John Reid (Hammer) became the legendary, masked figure known as The Lone Ranger. Tonto first encounters Reid when captured outlaw Butch Cavendish (William Fichtner) escapes custody, aided by his gang. Joining a group of Texas Rangers that include his brother Dan (James Badge Dale), Reid chases the wanted men but becomes the sole survivor of an ambush attack. Disguising himself from his enemies, who believe him to be dead, The Lone Ranger forms an unlikely partnership with Tonto and together they fight for justice against Cavendish and power-hungry railroad tycoon Latham Cole (Tom Wilkinson).

4.0 out of 5 stars Keep an open mind and ignore the reviews 10 Sep 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I also enjoyed this film more than I expected and ended up greatly moved by it. The negative critical reviews (understandably) just looked at it as another Pirates of the Caribbean blockbuster action comedy (which is no doubt what Disney hoped for too!) and it certainly fails there. BUT if you don't expect that and keep an open mind you'll find an intriguing film that, if you have a soul, may get you unexpectedly with its pathos, cinematography and fantastic soundtrack juxtaposed with the bizarre and surreal. I was rather bored for the first 20 minutes but then the film totally hooked me and I was nearly in tears by the closing sequence, in a good way! I didn't expect that at all. The actual Lone Ranger character is a bit of a side issue to the film, although his child like attempt to do the right thing in a corrupt world helped bring home the hypocracy in the difference between what we say we do, and know we ought to do, and what we actually do. I downloaded the soundtrack and am now playing it incessantly while waiting the blu ray release. Beware there are two soundtracks - one music inspired by the film (not particularly special), the other the ACTUAL Zimmer soundtrack (very special) that seems to be only an expensive (20) US import in hard copy but download is around eight quid.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the reviews led me to believe 27 Nov 2013
By Davywavy2 VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
The Lone Ranger landed in British cinemas trailing behind it bad reviews and poor word of mouth from the US like the tail of a comet, and vanished from cinemas again almost as quickly. They say that bad word of mouth can kill a film just as much as good can get it an audience, and this appears to be the case here. After doing very poor business in the US (it's expected to make a loss approaching US$150m), it had turkey written all over it.

The thing is, I can understand why The Lone Ranger did really badly in the `states and it's got less to do with it being a bad film than you might expect - in fact, there's a lot here to like. For my money the reason it did really badly in the US is because it's the most cynical blockbuster I've seen since perhaps Starship Troopers; it holds up a mirror to the creation myth of the American West and I don't reckon the US liked what it saw. From experience, asking simple questions like "Didn't lots of Indians once live in this part of the Americas? What became of them?" can go down really badly on the other side of the Atlantic, and the plot of The Lone Ranger is a retelling of what happened to the Sioux nation after gold was found in the Black Hills (only relocated to Texas and with the Cherokee as the tribe in the - literal - firing line) and, just like in real history, it doesn't end well for the Indians. At least in this version the baddies get their comeuppance.
I've got to admit to being slightly mystified as to why Disney spent the better part of a quarter of a billion dollars making a film about why the Indians are notable by their absence in those areas of US where valuable minerals were to be found given that it might be a bit of a touchy subject for much of their audience.

The Film itself is yet another origin story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Way out West 3 Jan 2014
By Backrow
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This was a great film to watch and I cannot wait to watch it again. It has plenty of laughs and plenty of action especially the part of the film involving the 2 trains. Forget what some critics said about the film it's worth a buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Film! 2 Nov 2013
By Shelagh
Format:DVD
I went to see this film at the cinema and wasn't expecting to enjoy it because of all the bad reviews. I absolutely loved it! I downloaded the theme music straight away and now I can't wait to buy the DVD. I don't know why it worked so well but it did. It was pure escapism and entertainment and the 2 and a half hours just flew by. At the end I would quite happily have sat through it again!

5.0 out of 5 stars We thought this film excellent. 4 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Don't view it with preconceived notion of the Clayton Moore, Jay Silverheels 'Lone Ranger' episodes, view it afresh and you will really enjoy it.
Its funny, engaging, scenery brilliant - good to know they went on location for parts of the film not just computer /studio bound!!
We have visited many of the locations used - Lone Pine, Monument Valley etc

5.0 out of 5 stars The William Tell overture 4 Jan 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The whole film builds towards the grand finale of trick riding and shooting to the strains of William Tell as fondly remembered from the original narrated films of the Lone Ranger. Johnny Depp masea as convincing an Indian brave as he did a South Seas pirate and a Mad Hatter.

Grew up on a diet of Lone Ranger and Tonto but was not expecting much from this. So, had quite a surprise at this thoughtful, witty, unusual and slightly bonkers film. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing
Johnny Depp normally makes the most amazing movies, but this was well below parr. Very wooden acting, very basic and boring plot. Not recommended.
