Last summer’s The Lone Ranger was labelled a bomb before it even opened and sure enough, it lost a boatload of bucks for the folks at Disney. To me, the biggest negative was the film’s length. At 2 hours and 30 minutes, I think 40 minutes could have easily been whittled out and the film would have been better received, though it’s certainly not any more bloated than some of the superhero movies that everyone likes, and which it’s pace and sense of overblown adventure seems to be modeled after.

Johnny Depp played a wonderfully weird Tonto, a wandering Comanche Native American who is hunting an evil spirit and also the man he believes can help him kill that evil spirit. Armie Hammer was a handsome, square-jawed Lone Ranger, a recent law school graduate looking to bring his sense of fair justice to town. The Lone Ranger was a whole lot of fun. »
