    Synopsis


    The Legend of the Lone Ranger
    An orphan grows up to become an Old West legend as the story of the Lone Ranger comes to the big screen in this western saga featuring Christopher Lloyd and Jason Robards. Orphaned as a young boy, John Reid struck up a lifelong friendship with a loyal Indian boy named Tonto. Years later, Reid has become a lawyer and returned to the west in order to ensure that vicious murderers such as the Cavendish gang are brought to justice. Having previously murdered Reid's parents, the Cavendish gang proves that they still rule this lawless land when they launch an ambush that leaves the lawyer serious wounded and his Texas Ranger brother dead. Nursed back to health by his old friend Tonto, Reid dons a mask and sets out to pursue justice anonymously atop his faithful horse Silver. His timing couldn't be better, either, because the Cavendish gang is about to carry out their most ambitious misdeed to date by kidnapping President Ulysses S. Grant (Robards). Upon learning that the president has been abducted by the most violent gang in the Wild West, the Lone Ranger sets out to settle an old score while rescuing the man who will steer the fate of a nation. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Under Rated Movie

      Posted
      RangerBill

      I believe that this movie has been under rated and walked all over even way back in the 80's. I saw this movie with my Dad and even though it wasn't the Blockbuster they were hoping for, even though it had Jason Robards, it was still a fun movie you could see with kids 8 and up. Not to violent, not full of intercourse or even a whole lot of bad language. It was a wholesome fun western that everyone could enjoy. The Lone Ranger (Klinton Spilsbury a relative unknown) was a childhood hero of many, from radio, to tv, and this the second movie ever released staring our masked hero, his faithful companion Tonto, and their horses Silver and Scout. Heroes such as these shall never come again.

      I have been looking for this DVD for 5 years! Thank goodness it's finally out. It was a great family movie that I remember seeing with my Dad. For years we've reminiscenced about this movie. I can't tell you how thrilled I was that this was one of his gifts for Christmas and we've have already watched it 3 times. The only downfall is the overall quality of the DVD. It's not in Dolby but if you have a decent system, it sounds fine. It's a little fuzzy in parts, like they basically put an old VHS on a DVD but really -it was worth it!! It's a great movie. I wish they would make more movies like this one.

      This is one of my favorite "legend of" movies. I have watched the original TV series and bought it. This movie is a good telling of how the lone ranger originated and evolved. I was very excited when this came out on blu-ray.

      Though not the best video quality on blu-ray, it certainly blows the DVD out of the water. Not to mention, the movie itself is leaps and bounds above anything contained in the lackluster Disney production from 2014.

      Probably a good movie for either children under 10 years old, or adults who remember the Lone Ranger from their childhood.
