Reviews

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).

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.

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.

Format: Blu-ray
The Lone Ranger clearly suffered from it being trendy to hate it on cinema release. It was almost universally derided. It was 'seen it all before', 'Depp does his same old thing', 'Gore Verbinski directs it the same as his Pirates of The Caribbean' etc...
Amidst the hate, a few brave magazine reviews dared to go against the flow and suggest that actually it was a great film. Those few were right.
While it is directed with the same vibrancy and energy as the original Pirates of the Caribbean, and has several complex and deliberately funny action sequences that have a similar feel of fun, this isn't 'seen it all before' territory.
Johnny Depp's Tonto is a darker, more worldly-wise character than expected, and amidst the constant moments of slick humour that he gets (he gets almost all the big laughs of the frequently funny film) - he also gets a very serious and quite emotional back-story that's driving him.
Far from being bland, Hammer's first major leading role is a brave play against current trends. He plays Reid as an upright, good-hearted man with a deep need to believe in the civilised values of Justice, in a way that current films (and even his co-lead Tonto) often look down on with scorn. It can seem absurd, but Hammer sells it with a charm and earnestness that does make you wonder if he has a point, when you see the devastation wrought by all the other characters' mistakes.
Fichtner is utterly brilliant as a cowboy outlaw so despicable that you could instantly make him a theme-park ride character (no-doubt someone at Disney's drawing up plans as we speak, if they haven't already done so), and the filming and action are slick, brilliantly inventive, and gorgeous to look at. This is a down and dirty Wild West with a sweet centre, and a rewarding thrill ride for grown ups and families alike.

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.
