What Were They Thinking?
28 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

Wow. There is nothing wrong with updating a classic and making it appeal to a younger, new audience but this was way too much. Too much talk, not nearly enough action, and the script! Those native-Americans had the best diction and vocabularies of any Indians I've ever seen on screen. The wardrobe was absurd also. The Lone Ranger looked more like a last-minute invitee

to a bad costume party. It was fine to change the clothes to darker colors than seen before but they didn't look very Western at all. Chad Murray was O.K. and could have really made a mark if this film had been more of a Western and a lot less of a grating, ill-conceived teens only show with a ridiculous sound- track. Ivy League native-Americans, 21st Century soundtrack, bad wardrobe, and way too much talk. No wonder this wasn't picked-up as a regular series by The WB. For that we can all be grateful.
