The Lone Ranger

The Lone Ranger

The Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, came to theaters on July 4, 2013. This is an action/adventure  film, filmed in Colorado, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and Los Angeles. The movie starts out on a train with the well known lawyer known and soon-to-be lone ranger, Reid (played by Armie Hammer) helping Tonto the Indian(Johnny Depp) fight off the bad-guys who are trying to take control of the train with the screaming civilians inside. These two characters eventually  kill the bad-guys, and when they come to their destination, Tonto goes to jail and Reid goes off on an expedition with his brother, the Sheriff of the town. While exploring the nearby land, the group is attacked, and none but Reid survive. For the remainder of the movie, we see Reid and Tonto working together to fight off the same cowboys who are destroying the town, and near the end, there is a major plot twist that turns the story around completely shocks the viewer. Surprisingly, though, the majority of critics have given The Lone Ranger negative reviews, mostly due to the modern references in this western film. I actually believe that the references added to the movies humor,  and that  the creators of the movie did an excellent job. Johnny Depp added humor to this film that only his unique acting skills as strange characters can bring. With his quirks and good natured humor, Armie Hammer played the perfect Lone Ranger and was able to keep the audience entertained throughout the movie. Though some may disagree with me, The Lone Ranger kept me engrossed and had my eyes glued to the screen the whole time. The film was filled with action: explosions at every turn, lots of shooting, and several scenes including hand-to-hand combat. If you’re a fan of action and adventure, I suggest that you watch The Lone Ranger; I guarantee that it will keep you entertained.
