I ordered The Lone Ranger from NF on BD with much trepidation.  My son had seen it and didn't like it and I know it got bad reviews.  All I can say about this movie is...

 

What a great movie!  I'm not a big Depp fan, but he was great in it.  The scenery was beautiful and the story was interesting.  The guy who played the Lone Ranger was forgettable but aside from that I really enjoyed it.

It was ok. I thought they needed to go a bit more one way or the other in terms f comedy and serious. Seemed To stuck in the middle sometimes.

My favorite Lone Ranger joke. Lone Ranger and Tonto surrounded by hundreds of Indians. "Looks like this is it" said Lone Ranger to Tonto. "What do you mean kemo sabe" said Tonto.

That was one of the high points.  At the end, they played the whole thing, I think.  One movie that I was sorry to see end.

Great! I was afraid everyone would laugh at me.  Not that there's anything wrong with that!   :rolling:

That's just icing on the cake.  It's worth watching.

I remember back in elementary school we have a music appreciation class. One day the teacher put on a record and ask if anyone knew the name of the work. Everybody answer immediately The Lone Rangers song.

Same thing happened to me.  Probably normal back then.

It was a fun flick, to me..  But towards the end the physics-defying stunts got a little TOO over the top..  I enjoyed it but it seemed like the CGI artists were trying too hard.

Lone Ranger says, "looks like this is the end FOR US"

 

Tonto says, "what to you mean, "us", Kemo Sabe"

Remember Tonto and the Lone Ranger beating hell out of a barroom full of bad guys or defeating what seemed like hundreds of bad guys in gun battles?  Now that was over the top.  Roy Rogers used to do the same thing.
