Kelly's Review of The Lone Ranger
The Lone Ranger(2013)
This is not a Train wreck I was expecting, but it isn't a smooth bullet train either. My big complaint is that Johnny Depp just stepped out of the Pirates movies, changed his buff to a dead crow and kept right on going. He plays the exact same part (without the "drunken stagger") and sometimes it isn't very well done. I think that Armie Hammer should have been less of a nervous nellie throughout even though he gets better as it goes on. The action scenes are crazy, the scenery is great (especially if you love Monument Valley) and the story keeps you going (sometimes in a few too many directions). I didn't think it was too long. It was too violent. It didn't keep true to the wholesomeness of the original series and that is a shame.
