Review of movie, The Lone Ranger

Ranger The Long Ranger theloneranger-teaserthumb-jpg_181255

To those of you out there who remember the TV series, The Lone Ranger, seeing this new movie version is a must.  Even if you weren’t around in the fifties, this movie is a must see!  It has action, adventure, comedy, murder, mayhem, and a little love through into the mix.

The characters are somewhat different than the TV series but this fact did not bother me at all.  They had their own distinct character traits that made them believable in their roles and entertaining at the same time.

Johnny Depp did his own unique version of Tonto, the Indian friend of The Lone Ranger.  He was so comedic in his performance that he kept me laughing and glued to my seat.  You could never tell what he was going to do or say next.  He is truly talented in different genres, whether it is comedy, drama or as the villain.  He always does a tremendous job.  He is a mega star in every way.  The role of The Lone Ranger was played by Armie Hammer.  He did a credible interpretation of the character adding his own innocence and humor to the role.   Hammer is definitely the good guy in this role who only wants to help his fellow man.  The interaction between the two main characters was amusing.

There was a disturbing scene as was written in a newspaper review when one villain kills a ranger and supposedly cuts out his heart and takes a bite of it.  You couldn’t see what the man was doing to the body and it did not show him eating his heart.  All you saw was blood on the man’s hands after he pulled out the knife.  It did, however, cut to another villain showing him throwing up to further imply that something hideous was being done to the body.   Young children should not be taken to this movie because of all the violence that is displayed in several scenes.  There are a lot of explosions and flying bodies and crashing of trains.  There is also a visit to a house of ill repute showing women and men together but no nudity.

If you are looking for a movie that will keep you spellbound and entertained and chuckling at all the antics by the characters then this is the movie for you.  A thoroughly enjoyable adventure that will leave you feeling good about how The Lone Ranger took care of the bad guys.  Good guys finish last.   Hi ho Silver away!!!

The way it ends leads me to believe they may do a sequel.  I am all for that.  I loved the movie so much that I didn’t want it to end.  Hopefully Disney will do the next one since they did an outstanding job on the first.

I may do some more movie reviews if I see any other exceptional movies to comment on and share with you.  Stay tuned and visit my blog again.  There are many more movies coming out this summer to see.

Remember to also read this summer:  READING GIVES YOU WINGS TO FLY!

Thought for the day:   Share a kindness with someone today and see the face of God in his/her smile.

    Great job again, Janice! Now we know lots about the movie. It’s always helpful when movies are reviewed so you read about different things that happen in the movie and why some of it may not be suitable for young audiences. Thank you for sharing your opinions with us.

    Thanks Deanie. I thought I would warn parents about taking their children to this Disney movie because of some of the violence in it that is inappropriate for young children. You wouldn’t expect a Disney movie to have so much violence. It was acceptable for adults and teens.
