Cast overview, first billed only:
Chief Big Bear


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.

Did You Know?


The film was originally supposed to have a plot focusing more on supernatural elements and Native American mysticism. This mainly would've taken the form of werewolves, which would've explained the silver bullets. However, this draft was supposedly part of the initial $250 million proposal that Disney quickly cancelled after John Carter (2012) underperformed. When the project was revamped to meet Disney's approval, it came more in line with the current script. See more »


When John is trapped under his horse, in one cut the horse appears to be chestnut but its black in the rest of the scene. See more »


Tonto: Nice Shot.
John Reid: That was supposed to be a warning shot.
Tonto: In that case, not so good.

Great Film, ignore the critics on this one
3 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just got back from seeing it and we were thoroughly entertained. Depp and Hammer were fantastic in their roles and the action was over the top, as expected. Be advised, this film is told from Tonto's point of view based on his recollections of what transpired. This is not an Oscar contender, nor was it ever intended to be, but it is a great popcorn flick. It is violent in certain scenes and may not be suitable for smaller children, but for adults and tweens, it is about right. I did think that the first 10-15 mins or so were a little too slap-sticky for me, but once it gets going, it gets good. To all of the naysayers out there, what did you think you were going to see? It is essentially a western Pirates of the Caribbean, and Depp portrayed his character with the usual humorous persona he always does.
