Great movie

What an entertaining movie! I had no expectations but it turned out to be a great comedy. Thought it deserved better than 2 stars.

Wow. Total waste of time.

Better than expected considering the bad reviews and poor box office take. Commercials made Depp as Tonto seem like a bad idea, but he turned out to be a more interesting character than the lone ranger...who was a little too goody goody.

wonderful! CLAP well done, its got just the right humor...and violence, and bad guys, and of course, the girl...both my husband and I loved it... Will never understand the bad reviews....

There's a couple of hundred million dollars' worth of technical wizardry up there on screen, and nothing is at stake. Except, maybe, for some future amusement park ride, and the sequels, and toys and hats and masks. And piles and piles of silver, if enough people lay down their hard-earned dollars to hear Hammer's hearty "Hi-yo." Full Review

It's a 2 1/2-hour slog, with tonal inconsistencies and monotonous, drawn-out action sequences. Scenes alternate between frenetic and tedious. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Though the story is mostly faithful to the established origin of the character, it's not until the last 15 minutes, when "The William Tell Overture" arrives in its full glory, that this starts to feel a little like The Lone Ranger. But that's too little, too late. And when The Ranger (played here by Armie Hammer) finally shouts "Hi-yo Silver," the moment is spoiled by turning it into a joke. Full Review

Wall Street Journal
Johnny Depp's Tonto wears a dead crow on his head in The Lone Ranger. The star himself carries a dead movie on his shoulders. Full Review

New York Daily News
This smart-looking but empty adventure — with a hero that looks more Tom Ford than John Ford — suffers from a shambling script, shifting tones and a surplus of villains. Clunky and drawn out, “Ranger” shoots blanks, even with the star power of Johnny Depp behind it. Full Review
