Movie Review: The Lone Ranger

We all have a idea on how the law should work, but sometimes you have to go a different route to find justice. Could you still serve the law, even if it wasn't the way you were used to? In July 2013, that's exactly what a man had to learn how to do, and he was known as... the Lone Ranger.

Directing this 149 minute action/adventure/western is Gore Verbinski.

Kicking up the dust in this flick is: Armie Hammer as John Reid/The Lone Ranger, Johnny Depp as Tonto, William Fichtner as Butch Cavendish, Tom Wilkinson as Cole, Ruth Wilson as Rebecca Reid, Helena Bonham Carter as Red Harrington, Barry Pepper as Fuller, Saginaw Grant as Cheif Big Bear, Bryant Prince as Danny and Mason Cook as Will.

A young boy is told the tale of how a man became know as the Lone Ranger. The tale starts with two brothers, a lawyer and a ranger, riding together to serve justice to the notorious Butch Cavendish.
Unfortunately, even when you have the law on your side, that doesn't always mean justice will prevail. A well planned ambush leaves the brothers for dead, until a Comanche Indian named Tonto comes to the rescue. Now, Tonto and the masked man ride to bring Cavendish down and finally see justice served.

All said, this was a great movie. A few more jokes than I would have liked to see, but the action scenes were awesome and the cast did great. Story wise, I didn't think the Lone Ranger was as serious of a character as he should have been, more of a dumb luck kinda thing. All in all great movie for the family.

It's rated PG 13 for violence.

Keeping with the theme of the movie, 4 silver stars. Hi-yo Silver! Away!
