The Lone Ranger

The Lone Ranger ★★★★★

"Witness the Wild West as it really was. The greatest show on Earth.

The blockbuster filmmaking on display here is insanely next level and this is easily one the best Hollywood has put out in recent memory. Verbinski takes the visual style and look of classic Westerns particularly those of John Ford and combines it with his mastery of large scale action set pieces and some great Keatonesque physical gags sprinkled on top to create something truly special. It's a shame this didn't do as well as the Pirates films because I would've loved to see Verbinski do a trilogy out of this as well.
