The railroad owner Latham Cole Tom Wilkinson has taken a liking to the Reid family. This was a film people walked out on. I had always felt that the studio could have done justice to both the fans and legacy of the lone ranger if Moore had been treated better. I still get chills and John Ried kneels at his brother's grave. We all loved and respected the lone ranger and his faithful companion Tonto, but we never really knew the story of how the two came to be such great friends and why they had chosen fighting evil and injustice as an occupation.
There are things I'd change here or there, but overall it was good. Bring your family to watch this, a great story of an iconic character. You see Clark in many films and most of the time his work goes un-noticed. Take a closer look, and we see that it's a very heavily made- up Depp, who for some reason comes alive to talk with the boy about his past. This time the hero is portrayed in the role of the victim.
Grant, he exudes presidential material. Ambushed by the outlaw and left for dead, John Reid is rescued by the renegade Comanche, Tonto, at the insistence of a mysterious white horse and offers to help him to bring Cavendish to justice. Synopsis In the 1930s, an elderly Tonto tells a young boy the tale of John Reid, the Lone Ranger. Synopsis When the young Texas Ranger, John Reid, is the sole survivor of an ambush arranged by the militaristic outlaw leader, Butch Cavendich, he is rescued by an old childhood Comanche friend, Tonto. And let's be honest, Hollywood really sucks at doing remakes, just look at how they poorly remade The Green Hornet. An idealistic lawyer, he rides with his brother and fellow Texas Rangers in pursuit of the notorious Butch Cavendish.
The Me generation's attempt to hold to the story and legend of what was entertainment and instruction for children required the blood and surfer hairdo shudder but such things do not detract from the Legend. Watch it with an open mind and not with all the bashing some would give it. So, for once, there isn't a lot of blood and guts all over the place. The Lone Ranger rides strong for several reasons that include direction, cinematography, casting, screenplay, special effects, pacing, acting, and story. I cannot believe the director would agree to this. Show some respect, you idiots! With the help of Tonto, the pair go to rescue the President Grant when Cavendich takes him hostage. I was presently surprised after watching this.
Not in this guy's portrayal. How ever this was not the case, and many of the viewing public stayed away in droves. And even if they turn up their noses at the prospect, which has happened, at least the offer was made. In 1869 in Texas the idealistic young lawyer John Reid Arnie Hammer returns to his home town of Colby to bring in the rule of law. There are a few very few things done right here--the photography was truly beautiful; Michael Horse was excellent as Tonto; Christopher Lloyd is lots of fun as the villain and when the Lone Ranger finally shows up with the William Tell Overture booming from the soundtrack it's really rousing. Director Gore Verbinski borrows heavily from his animated Western 'Rango' and some other choice films for his latest mega-budget action adventure, 'The Lone Ranger'.
Unfortunately, by then, we're worn out and ready to go home. To this end, John Reid becomes the great masked western hero, The Lone Ranger. It was a romp and this was what the whole of the film should have been. Soon the pair discover a bigger conspiracy that could lead to war between the United States and the Comanche tribe. The shtick between John and Tonto just reminded me how much better it was done in the Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes films, not helped with Hans Zimmer providing a similar score for both franchises. Every penny of the budget is on screen in a beautiful shot and staged movie.
They are all at least solid and Fichtner does make an excellent villain but his gruesome actions should have been cut from the script: he still could have been interesting, cold-blooded villain who killed on a whim without needing to be made into the complete psychopath. We've all seen or heard in some form about the Lone Ranger, his Indian partner Tonto and his majestic horse Silver. No, it wasn't perfect, but it certainly deserved a lot more respect than it got. Spilsbury lacks energy to say the least. Even when he's young, he just out acts, out performs as a pure evil, methodical, military style villain. But it is a good story worth retelling.
But when a notorious criminal, Butch Cavendish William Fichtner escapes whilst journeying to Colby John has to team up with his Texas Ranger brother Dan James Badge Dale and seek to find Butch and his gang. Much of it have happened in real life all over the world. Becoming a reluctant masked rider with a seemingly incomprehensible partner, Reid pursues the criminal against all obstacles. Energy is what Clayton Moore gave us in spades. It is violent in certain scenes and may not be suitable for smaller children, but for adults and tweens, it is about right. On an end note, the kill-count in this Disney film might be larger than all of the Rambo movies combined.
