Verbinski delivers a delirious final action sequence that transforms the movie from timid to full-bodied and rousing, but it's too little, too late.

You thought, 'Wow! Another cool, Jack Sparrow-type makeup job-check out the dead crow on his head!' All one can say of 'The Lone Ranger': what a waste of an excellent costume.

In short, the "spirit guide" of this film would be an odious trash heap.

If 1999's "Wild Wild West" was the deathblow for the big budget western, "The Lone Ranger" is the belated shower of dirt that should finally put the genre to rest.

While there is much good to say about this outrageous reboot of The Lone Ranger, there are also flaws that keep it from being totally successful, starting with a frame story that just doesn't make sense.

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 horrifically boring movie that feels like a long lost sequel to Wild Wild West (1999), another big-budget western disaster.

...funny, exciting, heartfelt, and just full of real joy and great entertainment.

If The Lone Ranger was a character in The Lone Ranger, it'd be the villain.

This isn't the complete disaster of Wild Wild West, but that's only because none of the $250 million was spent to turn Kenneth Branagh into a mechanical spider.

a bloated but entertaining studio juggernaut.

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.

Depp has done the kooky, costumed character shtick so many times, it's no longer surprising to see him bury his index finger into the desert sand, then lick it
August 30, 2013
Has its moments, but at 2 1/2 hours, movie tries to do far too much

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 Lone Ranger is a noisy, never-ending nonsensical mess, which easily tops the flops in the silly season of summer blockbusters. Last year, director Gore Verbinski made the Oscar winning animation Rango, this year, he's flogging a dead horse.
August 12, 2013
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.
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.
August 12, 2013
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.
