The Lone Ranger

Action Adventure Western


 

Native American warrior Tonto recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid, a man of the law, into a legend of justice.

This locomotive starts with a bang but eventually runs out of steam. The excessive running time is the biggest detractor from a film that is occasionally entertaining, and overly long. "The Lone Ranger" may still appeal to the more nostalgic members of the audience, with the iconic hero and his notably eccentric side-kick constantly engaged in a host of impressive action set-pieces and banter, culminating in a dynamite finale complete with classic theme. Plenty of hi-ho, not enough silver.
