Rays Movie Review… The Lone Ranger
Rays Movie Review… The Lone Ranger

I went to this film expecting so much and maybe that was the problem. It was supposed to be the next big franchise. The movie that we would see a sequel from every couple of years. It was supposed to be… good.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t.

The World Premiere of The Lone Ranger

I am a guy who loves big movies like this usually. I eagerly await comic book movies, die hard movies, I am of course a Star Wars and Star Trek fanatic. I am the type of person they make big tent pole movies for. I usually don’t dislike this type of movie. Congrats to the Lone Ranger for proving that a big film like this can be so bad that I change my mind on how I feel about this type of film.

The Lone Ranger is unnecessarily long. It’s secondary plots are cloudy at best. It is filled with Cliche’s and its lead character is a bumbling buffoon who makes no sense in his transition from sissified states attorney into the greatest superhero in the west. ¬†And then there’s Johnny Depp. His Tonto was supposed to be what we talked about. His Tonto was supposed to be the star of the movie, the best part of the movie. Instead we are talking about it. We’re talking about how bad a character he was. An obviously mentally disturbed individual who is seen as both young and old and is played by Johnny Depp looking like Jack Sparrow dressed as Charlie Chaplin dressed as a native american dressed as a member of Kiss. He mumbles through lines and I think they changed the script half way through writing of the film to give the impression he has some super powers or something. I wasn’t clear.

Also… It is time for Hollywood to stop with the “Luck of the good guy” scenario to answer every bad situation our heroes get into. Every time they are about to die they just so happen to be saved by an act of nature or a convenient post right off the train tracks.

And the Horse… Oh the horse! Silver may or may not have some powers too. I once again wasn’t clear.

This movie was a mess and it’s a shame because I really wanted to like it

2 out of 5 stars. Wait for HBO
