I like everyone else was so looking forward to this movie. And I was so let down. I don't even know where to start with this review. This is the worst film I have seen in so long. The worst since John Carter. And to be honest I think this is the only movie that comes close to the train wreck known as John Carter. How this script got picked up I don't know.How the script was not fix I don't know.What the writers were thinking? The film was all over the place. Was it a crazy,gross, violent film were the bad guy eats the hearts of the people he kills. Really? oh and don't get me started on the part were people get beheaded. The film was way to dark for family fun. and as far as the native americans go it was pretty mixed up. I'm glad to a point that they tried to do something and say how terrible they were treated and how they were nothing. But it just did not seem to go with the rest of the story. And the killer rabbits? where does that come from other than being a total waste of screen time. There was so much that should have been cut out of the film all together or cut out.At many times I felt like walking out because I had so little interest in the five different movies this was trying to be.What story were they trying to tell? Is this a family movie? Is it a true western? Because I would not take anyone to see this movie.Its not a family fun movie. And its not really a very good western. It was a waste of time.
The only good thing about the movie was Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, The white horse and the finale train bit. Other than that the movie was a train wreck its self. Armie Hammer tried his best but his character was just not there at all.There was no growth to the lone ranger as a person.
I kind of liked that how the lone ranger would not kill anyone because I think it is about time we have that in movies but this was not the movie to do it in. He is a TEXAS ranger. And after all the things he has seen in the movie like watching a man cut out another's beating heart and eat it in front of him I think that the rangers views on not killing would be very different.
Over all Tonto says it best at the end of the movie " Don't ever do that again", that is how I feel about watching this movie or the lone ranger 2. Save your money and see something else.
( PG -13 very violent and gross)
Stars: * 1.3 really it should be an hour long film of Tonto and the finale train bit.
