Native American warrior Tonto recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid, a man of the law, into a legend of justice.


I’ve never seen the original Lone Ranger but I had an image in my mind of a kick ass cowboy. That is not what I got.

At least half of the movie was an origin story, which could have very easily been done during credits with newspaper images or in the first five minutes. Definitely dragged on and the origin wasn’t worth it. Brother’s killed, Lone Ranger is born. There done.

The Lone Ranger came off as klutzy idiot who was randomly able to complete amazing feats. Again not the image I had in mind and it wouldn’t have been a problem if it had been consistent. If there had been a montage or something to show him going from a spaz to being able to gallop a horse on a train.

That brings up another complaint. The last part of the movie was so over the top, and I assume meant to be filled with tension, but because of how ludicrous everything was there was no tension.

I think it’s fairly obvious I didn’t like the movie. I didn’t hate it but it was not a movie I would recommend. I thought Armie Hammer was good, the faults in the movie weren’t his acting it was the material he’d been given.
