Audience Reviews for The Lone Ranger

Hi-Yo Silver is a condensation of the 1938 "Lone Ranger" serial. For the most part it's untouched from the serial. It contains little new footage that tries to connect several serials by having an old cowboy telling a young boy the story of the "Lone Ranger". This condense version is watchable for those have not seen the serial, but missing is the characterization and smooth pacing. Since this is a condense version of a movie serial it has an odd episodic flow. It attempts to make the "Lone Ranger" a more mysterious figure, but mostly fails since the five candidates that could be the "Lone Ranger" are done away quickly in its 69 minutes run-time. The story is coherent with some nice stunt work and old fashion western action, but this condense version is a small piece of what makes the "Lone Ranger" serial a series of fun simple adventures.
