The Long Ranger (cuz it's too dam long)

This movie has a lot going for it but by god it wants you to hate it anyway. To be honest, my review is for a two star movie but I enjoyed it more than I though I would so that's what the half star is for.
All the problems with this movie stem from the fact that it is too f**king long and the writers (same duo behind POTC film series) clearly had no idea how to fill up the inconceivable 2.5 hour running time. Whose idea was to make this two and a half hours long?!?!?! If one was to take the first act and the finale (the best parts of the film) and make a movie out of that, they'd be alright but they just had to **** this up anyway, didn't they?
Johnny Depp is channeling all his previous roles but he looks like he's enjoying himself for once. Armie Hammer seriously got screwed over by t...

Lone Ranger Rides Again... to Middling Results

Johnny Depp has pretty much made a career out of playing misfit characters. From Edward Scissorhands to Ed Wood to Captain Jack Sparrow - pretty much every role is something a bit off center. But lately, Depp has found out that quirky doesn't necessarily mean success. Alice in Wonderland was merely adequate, Dark Shadows was a letdown but if anyone could bring Depp back it would be Gore Verbinski - the man who gave us arguably the most memorable character in year in the aforementioned Jack Sparrow. And I'm guessing that Disney was hoping Lone Ranger was going to be another successful franchise like Pirates.

Yet Lone Ranger is no Pirates. They follow roughly the same outline but is doesn't have that spark. For one thing, Armie Hammer (who has done great in supporting roles) just doesn't...

Hope for the Western Genre

The Lone Ranger is a very flawed movie. Its tone (and much of its plot) seems to be a random hodgepodge of different Ideas they head for a Lone Ranger movie, none of which meld together particularly well. The result is a movie that is often jarring in its plot and tonal shifts; a big bag of western lunacy.

That’s only partially a negative critique, since the bizarreness of it all makes the movie strangely entertaining. The many strange aspects of the movie are hit and miss, but they hit more then they miss. The overall effect is one of an entertaining, and surprisingly original summer adventure.

Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp both do a good job with their characters. Armie Hammer is especially fun to watch, this probably won’t be his breakthrough role (with a 25% on Rotten Tomato...

The only saving grace is going to be if international numbers can save it from being a complete disaster. One thing's for certain - it's not going to spawn any franchise. I haven't seen this yet, but I've relegated it to Netflix status rather than a theater-worthy experience.

I can sleep well tonight, now that the project is back on track with a lowered budget. Seriously, though, I'm glad the big issues were worked through and the project was not shelved.

I forgot about Pirates. So one success in the last 10 years? Maybe a studio with more adult success will pick it up, that will be my hope.

Disney took a chance with the Pirates films, and they turned out just fine. Even if they are afraid westerns don't have as much appeal, it seems like the wrong move. I have a feeling it will be picked up.
