my thoughts: Disney and Johnny Depp love to make long movies together, the Lone Ranger is no different from the Pirates franchise. Over two and half hours long, this movie is so slow-paced you find yourself wishing it would just end. If anyone is not familiar with the Lone Ranger or Tonto stories, you might struggle through the film like I did. There is only one part that makes all the sitting around worth it, and that’s a two train chase scene. These 20+ mins of the film are so entertaining, you wonder why the rest of the movie wasn’t this good. Some people love this movie, some others hate it. You’ll only know which group you are if you take the time to watch it.
my star rating: 4 out 10
