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 An unheralded gem 1 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Okay so the critics mauled this movie and it only did okay at the box office - not enough to recover its huge budget and advertising.

Strip that away and what you are left with is an entertaining family romp in the style of Indiana Jones.

The Lone Ranger is witty, exciting and very entertaining. It throws homages to everything from Little Big Man to Buster Keaton's The General.

Johnny Depp does well as Tonto - who is clearly the brains of the operation, whereas The Lone Ranger starts off a bit like James Stewart's character in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.

I won't spoil the plot but all I will say is the finale - the incredible last 10 minutes which involves two trains (one going the wrong way) finally hears the iconic William Tell Overture and it would take someone without a heart not to cheer The Lone Ranger and the wondrous Silver charge the rooftops and ride to the rescue.

A film for kids of all ages.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Lone Ranger 14 Oct 2013
By Big D
Format:Blu-ray
Okay, let me begin by saying that I am a 51 year old lad who grew up with The Lone Ranger tv series starring Clayton Moore, who collected the comics and annuals of the time, who had both the Lone Ranger, Silver, Tonto and Scout toys and who even bought a vinyl album of The William Tell Overture, just because it formed the basis of The Lone Ranger. I am a fanboy and proud of it.

Bearing all this in mind I hate to say this but boy, was I disappointed with this film. Its not a bad film, mind you, and is hugely enjoyable in parts but taken as a whole it just doesnt attain the heights it aspires to be. This along with Pacific Rim (action brilliant, script and acting appalling) were the two biggest disappointments of the summer.

In my humble opinion there are three things wrong with this film.

1) It has a soggy middle that goes on for too long without much happening. The film starts well and ends well but the filling between does drag in parts. It needed a good, strong editor, that could have trimmed a good 30 - 40 minutes off its length.
2) The Lone Ranger himself. Armie Hammer, whilst having a good physical presence, portrays the Ranger as a wet lettuce. Yes this is an origin story and the script is at fault aswell but Hammers acting only goes to emphasise the scripts shortcomings and turns the Ranger into a weak, comedic, pc do gooder that irritates rather than inspires.
3) The framing of the story with an aged Tonto relaying the tales to a young lad. Corny, cheesy and unnecessary. It just gets in the way and breaks the atmosphere when the film generates it.

This is not a bad movie - no where near as bad the film reviewers would have you believe but at the same time not as good as some reviewers on here would have you believe. Hence my review. At the end of the day however I dont hesitate in advising you to give it a go and make up your own mind, after all, this particular child may just be growing up.
