The Lone Ranger is a movie that never could hold up, especially if it's made by Disney. Sure, Disney produce some good movies however this isn't one of them. I don't really know where this movie failed, other than knowing it did. I don't think it was down to the performances, I thought Depp did a great job as Tonto - a charismatic Native American andArmie Hammer did ok as The Lone Ranger, I just felt he didn't quite shine as brightly as Depp.
I think the issue with The Lone Ranger is that the story is just boring. They seem to walk around a lot, talking about stuff. But nothing really happens until the end, I just felt rather bored with it all. I'd of rather of watched that animated GIF of that overweight cat running on a treadmill underwater, you know the one.
Perhaps. I'm not entirely sure. I think with a better script and a better Director anything is possible. This is by no means the worst movie in the world, however I really don't think it could ever hold the weight of time.
