Consensus: Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp make for an appealing pair of leads, but they're not enough to make up for The Lone Ranger's bland script, bloated length, and blaring action overkill.

This isn't the complete disaster of Wild Wild West, but that's only because none of the $250 million was spent to turn Kenneth Branagh into a mechanical spider.

Somewhere, around the hour-and-a-half mark, The Lone Ranger makes the fateful decision not to end. Worse, the movie keeps not-ending for another full hour.

The weirdest summer blockbuster to come down the pike in eons. I have no idea who this movie was made for, but I'm glad that I saw it.

Your expectations of how bad The Lone Ranger is can't trump the reality.

Chris Stuckmann

A horrifically boring movie that feels like a long lost sequel to Wild Wild West (1999), another big-budget western disaster.

Well....what can I say. I DO NOT think that Johnny Depp was miscast. I think that he was the best part of this silliness. In my opinion, it was the way this… More
