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.

"The Lone Ranger" takes it's source material (somewhat) from the classic television series, and for the most part, this film fails miserably on all levels. Sure it's action sequences may be fun to watch, but the writers honestly had too much material to work with and it seems like too much is going on all at once, while still feeling very slow. Johnny Depp plays the same persona as always, and Armie Hammer just feels miscast in every way. This film has been bashed by critics and normally I would give sympathy to the filmmakers, who in this case have done a technically good job, but it is just one mistake after another and one cliche after the next. "The Lone Ranger," with better direction, better casting, and a much better script, could have been fun, but it's one of the most forgettable films in recent years.

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.
