Complete waste of film
3 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

The only redeeming quality about this "movie" is the depiction of Tonto as a self assured warrior with leadership abilities. Outside of this one aspect, the rest of the movie was nothing more than a poorly written insult to the history of the Lone Ranger.

While not the first adaptation to get the name wrong, the fact that they change the name from John Reid to Luke Hartman tells you just how little respect the writers have for the character. On top of that, you get a scrawny kid who doesn't even shave yet to play the part? He better be a crack shot, cause there's no way he survives in a hand-to-hand fight.

Bad acting, bad writing, silly action sequences, and a complete lack of respect for the story make for a completely worthless movie. And just to add insult to injury, they have to mangle the William Tell Overture? While a few teenage girls might enjoy this as eye-candy, it lacks any actual quality to make it worth watching.
