Well, it sure was a strange and subversive Fourth of July gift Disney decided to give the country.

The weirdest summer blockbuster to come down the pike in eons. I have no idea who this movie was made for, but I'm glad that I saw it.

A sense of joy in Verbinski's action runs through and energizes the entire film, and it's an ingratiating quality that should not be so easily and quickly dismissed.

It's certainly not your ol' man's "Lone Ranger," Kemo Sabe, but there's still plenty of kicks and stunts to make you wanna shout, "Hi-O, Silver! Away!"

The first genuinely characterful action blockbuster of the summer: both a big, beautifully realised throwback to Hollywood Boy's Own storytelling and an intelligent revision of Old West history.

Yes, this $250million reboot is overlong, over indulgent and tonally uneven, but it's also stuffed full of deadpan comedy, breakneck thrills and breathtaking visual spectacle.

Everything about this film screams excess, from the ludicrous two-and-a-half hour running time to the whopping scale of the action sequences to Johnny Depp's bizarro costume.

It's at times the most exciting live action film for years.

It's no sort of masterpiece. But The Lone Ranger is a good deal less dreadful than advance word has suggested.

Flying as high as an eagle or scampering across the tracks like a lizard, Verbinski's camerawork is off the-chain and the visual-effects are first class.

Verbinski clearly knows how to stage action, with outstanding train-based set-pieces bracketing the film.

The Lone Ranger is a curio on a gigantic scale; a colossal, misunderstood mistake that will win you over with weird if only you'll let it.

Talk about a pleasant surprise! Real storytelling, well thought-out and beautifully, at times insanely, executed, with excitement, laughs and fun to make you feel seven years old again.

Without a doubt, Depp's performance of Tonto is one of finest of his career. It's a movie of great adventure and humour. Sorrowful and nostalgic.

British audiences may well embrace the film's oddness - and blatant anti-American stance - which while not always successfully executed, means there is rarely a dull moment.
