A film that is at once divinely silly, surprisingly deep and deceptively complex.

A fresh look at the Lone Ranger legend with Johnny Depp outstanding as Tonto.

There's a solid story in here somewhere, but sadly it's suffocated under layers and layers of overindulgence.

If you can embrace the easy-going spectacle of it all and its general respect for the Lone Ranger legacy, you'll probably enjoy it.

Your expectations of how bad The Lone Ranger is can't trump the reality.

The Lone Ranger is a film that doesn't know what it wants to be.

Just as important as what Gore Verbinski's gleefully post-modern Western isn't, is what it is.

Each decade gets the western it deserves. For our time we get the very essence of soulless corporate excess and celebrity self-regard.

Too long, too weird and too darn tootin' unfunny.

I expected a mess of epic proportions, in many ways it is (almost any scene with Depp in it), but it is bold, visionary, and truly a unique piece of blockbuster filmmaking.

Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer project a humorous chemistry with each other while portraying Tonto and the Lone Ranger. But Silver runs away with this rollicking Western action comedy.

The good bits are like the seeds that end up on the bottom of bird cages, tasty tidbits momentarily visible before getting covered in crap.

I laughed, I had fun, but there is something annoyingly non-committal about the direction and tone. And why not just call it "Tonto" and be done with it? Who are we kidding?

Yes, there's a cloud of dust. Yes, there's a hearty 'Hi-yo, Silver!' And yes, there's a marvelous chase scene to the 'William Tell Overture.' But it takes a long, long time before 'The Lone Ranger' transitions into the iconic masked lawman.

A complete tonal disaster and one of the goofiest attempts at trying to execute a western with an action/adventure aesthetic
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

It begins and ends with a bang. Too bad the fuse fizzled out somewhere in the middle.This could have been the best film of the summer with some simple tinkering. But as it stands, it's just an okay movie with some spectacular action.

Despite the padding, "The Lone Ranger" moves extremely well, capturing many of the qualities that made "Pirates of the Caribbean" so much fun.

Overblown, stupid, loud, unfunny, and completely maddening in its undisguised assumption that you'll swallow this nonsense whole.

Bloated and uneven attempt to revive a long dead franchise.

It's ultimately clear that the only thing standing in the way of The Lone Ranger's unqualified success is its severe overlength...
