Juggling angry Russians, the British Mi5, and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai races to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain a code that leads to lost gold.
In the 1930s, an elderly Tonto tells a young boy the tale of John Reid, the Lone Ranger. An idealistic lawyer, he rides with his brother and fellow Texas Rangers in pursuit of the notorious Butch Cavendish. Ambushed by the outlaw and left for dead, John Reid is rescued by the renegade Comanche, Tonto, at the insistence of a mysterious white horse and offers to help him to bring Cavendish to justice. Becoming a reluctant masked rider with a seemingly incomprehensible partner, Reid pursues the criminal against all obstacles. However, John and Tonto learn that Cavendish is only part of a far greater injustice and the pair must fight it in an adventure that would make them a legend. Written by

The original Lone Ranger radio serials led to a spin-off radio serial, The Green Hornet. The title character's alter ego, Britt Reid, was John Reid's great nephew. Tom Wilkinson appeared in the remake of The Green Hornet (2011). See more »
During the locomotive chase scene several times the actor pushes forward on the throttle to speed up the steam engine. Steam engine throttles work the opposite way. You pull the throttle to speed up and push forward to slow down. See more »

Studio heads should let writers write movies, instead of writing it themselves
Entertaining. Has major first and second act trouble. The third act seems to be the movie's strongest part. From what I would read about this movie before it's release, the date kept getting pushed back and pushed back. Also they changed directors, maybe, certainly there were issues the studio had with the movie's tone so I think the movie got more than just one final edit, which is rarely a good sign. I could be wrong on all of that, but what I do know is that what I saw was an uneven movie. Whatever behind the scenes troubles this movie may or may not have had, on the screen I saw a movie that felt very pieced and stitched together rather than some fluid thing. The third act though works, so there you have it, that's the movie, act 1 off act 2 off act 3 works.
