The Lone Ranger

The Lone Ranger ★★★★

Hi-Yo, Silver! Away!

I surprisingly really liked this movie despite the fact it was a big bomb and seemingly got poor reviews. I thought it was a lot of fun though and basically reminded me of Pirates of the Caribbean but in the Old West. The big action set pieces are tremendously exciting and well directed, and the movie in general has some great cinematography, with stunning shots of the Western landscape. The costumes look good too and they did a nice job recreating the period.

The cast all seem to be having a blast and I thought Depp was pretty fun as Tonto. The story is kind of basic but I thought it was well-paced and I never felt the length of the movie. I don't really care if this was a "troubled" production because what's on-screen was pretty entertaining. Definitely underrated!
