Bloopers - Saddle up with Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer and the rest of the cast as they battle unruly horses, malfunctioning props, gunslinging misfires and mutinous mustaches in this blooper showdown
Originally I had wanted to see 'The Lone Ranger' when it was in theaters. But because of the lukewarm reviews, I decided to hold off and wait for its release on Bluray. I seriously don't get the hate this movie is getting. Includes a fair amount of special features and extras. Picture and audio on this blu rocks....! Too bad reviewers likely killed the sequel.
I had heard this movie was a waste of time. If you are one who feels compelled To stay with the same character studies as in older films, you might feel that way. Growing up with The Lone Ranger tv series, I admit t a bit of bias going in. However, I found the movie to hold to the same values as put forward By Clayton Moore, Jay Silverheels, and others from way back when. How they did it with this movie, well, you will just have to watch to see. Glad I spent the money on it. BTW the DVD add on features, especially the Cowboy Classroom, were very nearly worth the price of admission.
A word about Johnny Depp. What an actor! His comedic timing as well as his ability to bring forth a strong character when one is called for is right there on the pinnacle of greatness. Mark my word, he will be honored as one of the greats of Hollywood before he is done.
Very good movie. Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer were very good.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rating 4 out of 5 stars with 1 review
I have looked for this movie since I first rented it. It was not popular at the box office so I didn't see it until later. It is a funny movie. It is unconventional, but I enjoyed it despite expecting a conventional western.l I recommend it to buy. I ordered, it arrived promptly.
The Lone Ranger was a fun action movie, a good "popcorn" flick, with a sense of humor. The story is a bit stock, but there are plenty of great moments that make up for any lack of depth. Arnie Hammer is a good Lone Ranger, but Johnny Depp steals the show as Tonto. I really wish I had gone to see it in theaters. I was excited about it until I heard the words "flop" bandied about by critics. These are the same talking heads who trounced cult faves like "John Carter" and "Dredd" before they even hit theatres, I think. Ignore them! This is a fun movie!
