The Lone Ranger

The Lone Ranger ★★★★

Disney. Blu-Ray
35mm, Codex ARRIRAW

"Eight men rode into canyon... I dug seven graves. Horse says, you are spirit walker: a man who has been to the other side and returned, a man who cannot be killed at all..."

The one thing abundantly clear from The Lone Ranger is its length. It's far too long and pushing over 150 minutes for a muted western, it is a challenge to stay motivated but in the right mood Verbinski's film is wonderful homage and an incredible action adventure epic. The production design and aesthetic is fantastic and the scale is truly epic to feast ones eyes upon. The edit is a little jarring in the first 15 minutes and it's almost 40 minutes into the film where it begins to develop but both leads have great chemistry and carisma with Hammer really impressing and presumably due to the box office disappointment, ruined his chances of playin Batman.
