Okay, everyone knows I’m a huge Johnny Depp fan so this review might be slightly bias. I will try my best to be honest and true. Did I love this movie? The answer is YES, YES, YES! Only Johnny Depp could have set the aura, the comedic moves, the sarcasm, the hint of silliness and the seriousness that made this movie so good. I vaguely remember the Lone Ranger of yesterday — if it had been written like this, I would not have forgotten a thing. From Helena Bonham Carter’s gun shooting, porcelain leg and foot, to Tonto’s dead bird head gear, The Lone Ranger was a total blast. It wasn’t slap stick (which I don’t care for) and it wasn’t silly or stupid. It actually has a strong story to tell and some history lessons to boot. The Indians didn’t get blamed for everything evil and bad and the greediness and ruthlessness of our great country came into play. Of course the actions of some are not the rule of the majority but justice prevailed all over this funny yet dramatic movie from the past. Armie Hammer who always reminds me of Brendan Fraser, did an excellent job of portraying the “justice is not blind” lawyer turned lawman. I really enjoyed it, laughed endlessly and anxiously awaited each scene. I highly recommend you check out The Lone Ranger!
