So I finally saw Disney’s, “The Lone Ranger” last night w/ Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp. I never saw this film in theater ’cause I was skeptical of it. So I waited for DVD rental on it. I rented it through Netflix. I wanted to see the new, “Lone Ranger” flick ’cause I used to be a huge fan of the original TV show when I was a kid. Used to watch the show a lot.
After seeing the film last night… I was very surprised. The film was actually pretty good. Not as bad as the critics made it out to be. The film was watchable and very entertaining all the way through. Told a good story, and acting was good. It was a nice homage/tribute to the Lone Ranger legacy which is the whole point of the film. It was faithful to the Lone Ranger.
My only disappointment is Johnny Depp playing Tonto, the Indian. I don’t agree with Johnny playing an Indian. Tonto should have been played by an Indian actor, not an America. That’s the only part of the movie that didn’t make any sense to me but other than that, the movie was fine. I didn’t get bored watching this one.
The script was good and the action was a blast. This is an introduction to the John Reid and Lone Ranger story. I’m glad Disney made this movie ’cause in today’s generation, not a lot of people know who the Lone Ranger is. That character deserves to get known again. I know the Lone Ranger first made it’s debut on radio back in the 1930’s, though.
This was surprisingly a good film. You should definitely check this one out for sure.
