It's hard to believe that as each year goes by, despite the substantial advances in computer graphics and filmmaking techniques, movies continue to become more unrealistic.
July 24, 2020
A barely coherent story lightly disguised by big explosions and CGI.

The story is convoluted, and by turns attempts to be a tent pole action film, a buddy comedy, a family melodrama, a revisionist western, and a tale of heroism, and it falls flat in every instance.

Only two words come to mind. Why bother?

'Hi-Yo, Silver, Away!' And sadly, that's what you may be doing -- going away...

Good news, Washington Redskins! For one glorious weekend in the summer of 2013, your unapologetically racist franchise is not the most grotesque pop culture representation of Native Americans!

The philosophy behind the movie, which stretches to two-and-a-half hours, seems to be the same one that inspired the all-you-can-eat Vegas buffet.
April 10, 2019
It's just dreadful and a failed attempt at a franchise that needs to ride off into the sunset and be forgotten forever.
February 27, 2019
The overlong plot lacks smarts; the action (a train wreck aside) lacks thrills; and the cascade of characters (including turns from Helena Bonham Carter and Tom Wilkinson) lack the necessary depth or spark.

The Lone Ranger has its good moments, but it has many more that just don't come together into a cohesive whole.
November 6, 2018
This movie is almost condescending in its lack of concern for logic, continuity and charm.

The Lone Ranger is a film that manages to be bad in many ordinary ways and, also, to be bad in a rather extraordinary way.
August 30, 2018
Has its heart in some of the right places, but just can't shoot straight.

In any case, by the time you stagger out of this endless nightmare, you will feel as aged and destroyed as Johnny Depp in his old-man makeup.
March 8, 2018
There are so many wild and funny ideas. The only problem is that they've used them all.
November 29, 2017
A movie that could have been a fun summer escape winds up with a 150-minute identity crisis.
October 21, 2017
It's impossible to get down with a movie this long and this stupid.
September 5, 2017
Guess what? It's not actually that bad.
July 14, 2016
The Lone Ranger is a weird mixture of daffy slapstick and deadly seriousness.
July 11, 2016
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.
