Storyline

In the 1930s, an elderly Tonto tells a young boy the tale of John Reid, the Lone Ranger. An idealistic lawyer, he rides with his brother and fellow Texas Rangers in pursuit of the notorious Butch Cavendish. Ambushed by the outlaw and left for dead, John Reid is rescued by the renegade Comanche, Tonto, at the insistence of a mysterious white horse and offers to help him to bring Cavendish to justice. Becoming a reluctant masked rider with a seemingly incomprehensible partner, Reid pursues the criminal against all obstacles. However, John and Tonto learn that Cavendish is only part of a far greater injustice and the pair must fight it in an adventure that would make them a legend.

Trivia

Gore Verbinski, Jerry Bruckheimer, Armie Hammer, and Johnny Depp openly criticized the American critics' The Lone Ranger (2013) reviews, with Depp saying "the reviews were written seven to eight months before we released the film." Bruckheimer felt the film was overlooked and that critics "were reviewing the budget, not reviewing the movie." It was also the similar manner of speaking when compared to John Carter (2012), when critics criticized the film by its similar problems, but not the film itself. Armie Hammer shared a very interesting point on the matter, "If you go back and read the negative reviews, most of them aren't about the content of the movie, but more what's behind it. It's got to the point with American critics, where if you're not as smart as Plato, you're stupid. That seems like a sad way to live your life. While we were making it, we knew people were gunning for it. I think it was the popular thing when the movie hit rocky terrain, they jumped on the bandwagon to try and bash it. They tried to do the same thing with World War Z (2013), it didn't work, the movie was successful. Instead, they decided to slit the jugular of our movie." See more »

Goofs

During the opening train scene, as Johnny Reid tries to get free of the chains, he says "That's reinforced Bethlehem Steel." The company was founded in 1857 as Saucona Iron Company. On May 1, 1861, its name changed to the Bethlehem Iron Company. It became Bethlehem Steel Company in 1899. See more »

User Reviews

 
200 million dollar boondoggle

Like many of Disney's recent megaflops, this is creakily old fashioned in the worst possible way. The tone - varying between screwball comedy and high body count violence - is so uneven it's bipolar. Johnny Depp is phoning it in with a Willie Wonka-esque performance, all funny faces and gestures like a talking mime. Armie Hammer looks homely and ten years older than he is; they may as well have cast Cary Elwes. The only thing possible that I think the producers/director were going for was along the lines of the more current Indiana Jones films. They didn't even hit the artistry of Crystal Skull. Some of the effects, shots and scenery are great, which is a shame because if they'd told a good story, they could have halved the budget and doubled the gross.
