The Lone Ranger

The Lone Ranger ★★½

Not as bad as advertised, but certainly not great. A couple of incredible action set pieces, several fun characters and at times world class editing make this film arrive somewhat close to the blockbuster it was meant to be. An incredible cast on paper, however too many of them are wasted in roles that are barely cameos. There are several CG sequences (buffalo stampede early on and some later horse action) that make you wonder where in the hell $175 million plus went, and some of the Tonto humor gets too LCD. All-in-all a fun ride albeit a bit too long, but how many major studio releases aren't these days? William Tell still gets me. Hi ho Silver.
