Some people love it, some other hate it. As for me, I think it was a decent film. Although it is a little bit too long and you can feel it boring at some point, never less it has very good action moments and very good humor too. Johnny Depp as Tonto is quite excellent, some people say that he resembles with their other characters, I don't see it but anyway he steals the movie. The one I feel kinda weak as the Lone Ranger was Armie Hammer, he really doesn't convince me at all. In conclusion, I think The Lone Ranger was enjoyable and entetaining. The typical summer movie you want to see to spend a good time.

It's two and half of the most spectacular hours you will see this year on film. A rousing thrill-ride that will bring out the kid in all of us. A tremendously entertaining and exhilarating action-packed adventure that you will love from start to finish. An instant classic that's filled with explosive gun-play, explosions, laughs and great fun that you cant miss. An astonishing epic adventure, even with all of its visual dazzle, it does not ignore that this film has a real big heart. A gorgeous backdrop of the landscape and shows very well that the western still knows how to be stunning. A smart, wickedly funny and wonderfully exciting action movie. A relentlessly heart-pounding and adrenaline-pumping good time at the movies. An action-packed roller-coaster ride that you wont be able to resist. Director, Gore Verbinski and Producer, Jerry Bruckheimer have done it again, creating another outstanding adventure film that will thrill and amuse you on any day or night. Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer are sensational, they have fun and truly great chemistry that just breathes new life into the original dynamic duo. Depp is funny, thrilling and terrific. Hammer is excellent, he has real charisma and potential as a leading man. William Fichtner is brilliant. Tom Wilkinson is fantastic.

I don't rate films based on commercial success. If I did I'd be telling you that Citizen Kane, It's a Wonderful Life, Harold and Maude, Fight Club, Blade Runner and The Shawshank Redemption were all terrible films. The Lone Ranger was being slated by people before anyone had even seen it and apart from not making as many billions as the studio had hoped, I can't see what is so bad about it. It does ramble on a bit but quite frankly show me a Western that doesn't. They're supposed to! Most 'blockbusters' do too these days. It could have been shorter and it was a little self-indulgent by Gore Verbinski but then this is what he does best. Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer were both great in the lead roles and William Fichtner and Tom Wilkinson were perfect baddies. It had action, comedy, Adventure, great visual effects and a little bit of romance to boot. It is everything you could want from a summer blockbuster and an example of a remake/reboot done well. The fact that the Razzies gave it an award this year just shows you what little credibility they have.
