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.

The Lone Ranger is a weird mixture of daffy slapstick and deadly seriousness.

You thought, 'Wow! Another cool, Jack Sparrow-type makeup job-check out the dead crow on his head!' All one can say of 'The Lone Ranger': what a waste of an excellent costume.

The action scenes were well done, and I enjoyed Johnny Depp's acting, but I didn't like the story. For instance, if you are going to native legends… More
