The Lone Ranger Reviews
Another Silly Depp film directed by Gore Verbinski who is better than tim burton but still shit at directing, But Not So Bad He Ruins A Movie,
It wasn't his fault that this movie was Bad!
It Was A Little funny, only laughed once but that's not much.
The film was bad and i can't believe how bad it is.
Armie Hammer's first movie i seen turns out so horribly wrong
All thanks to Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham carter being in a Gore Verbinski movie, This Reminds people of Tim Burton movies.
I saw this movie with my friend, he thought it was funny, i did too.
Even Alice In Wonderland is funnier.
I Like going to movies with friends but i don't wanna see this film again even when it comes out on DVD.
It's the narrative where things fall apart though. The climax may balance humor and dramatic moments nicely, but the rest of the film struggles in that regard. Gore Verbinski can't seem to decide if this is a serious western with fantastical elements or a swashbuckling comedy. Considering his work on the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, which balanced these two things nicely, it's kind of bizarre that he can't nail down a solid tone in The Lone Ranger. The idea of telling this story ultimately through flashbacks of an elderly Tonto is unnecessary, and really adds nothing to the movie: this story is perfectly fine without it. Also unnecessary is its two and a half hour runtime, which really drags during the less exciting moments of the film. An easy half an hour (at least) could've been shaved and given this one some stronger pacing.
The box office returns may imply a trainwreck (no pun intended), but The Lone Ranger isn't all that bad. In spite of its narrative and pacing issues, there's a lot of fun to be had here, and anyone willing to go into the movie without expecting a western classic will likely be entertained.
