August 12, 2013
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.

If the movies have no ambition, nothing to say and no desire to tell new stories, should they continue? Jerry Bruckheimer, I await your answer.

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.

Gallops across our skulls for two and a half hours, pounding them into the same kind of desert as that on screen: a barren flatland with occasional rearing outcries of rock.

August 8, 2013
Limp and lifeless, this overlong and undercooked would-be blockbuster cannot focus on either the hard-edged realities or the magical mysteries it toys with.

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.

An enjoyable Western adventure enlivened by strong performances, stunning location work and some exciting action set-pieces ...

Verbinski has surely modified this film's running time using dastardly new temporal-distortion technology, so that each of its 149 minutes contains 250 seconds. The South American landmass peeled off from the western seaboard of Africa quicker than this.

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.

It's perhaps no coincidence that the film ends up on a runaway locomotive as this feels like a train wreck throughout.

Frustrating, lazy and lifeless.

It's among the most captivating failures you will see this year.

Gorgeously shot, brilliantly acted and recklessly ambitious.

As Eric Morecambe once said, "I'm playing all the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order."

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.

Ultimately, it's not as awful as Wild Wild West. But we'll hazard a guess that Pirates 5 can't come quick enough for Bruckheimer or Depp.

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.
