The Lone Ranger

The Lone Ranger ★★★

All kinds of breakneck bombastic nonsense. That's exactly what I was in the mood for after a couple of slower-paced Oscar hopefuls. I see why Tarantino dug it. It's the kind of film I imagined Robert Rodriguez was going to do when he went Hollywood. In fact, it's far more satisfying in visual terms than the recent RR stuff. Lots of stylized violence and slapstick shenanigans. The final sequence is a virtual train wreck of an homage to Buster Keaton. People are hating on Depp for this one, but I liked his Tonto.
