He won't be talking to anybody.
What about that masked man and injun? They can cause us plenty of trouble.

A fitting and bravura end to the team of Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels as the West's most exciting vigilante team (Zorro worked alone). From the initial concept, the coupling of a White Man and an Indian as faithful companions set the stage for a coming together of the races and respect for the Native American.
This Lone Ranger movie takes it to the logical and presents a story here that is provocative and ahead of its time, especially for the impressionable youth market. This cannot be overstated. Our Heroes are just that. They have a quality that is remarkable, commendable, and a Mythos that will endure forever.
This movie is a wonderful experience. A colorful, action filled, Western that has an elevated script, some penetrating violence, and characters that are believable, with a depth of behavior found only in the better Westerns of the time.
This final outing retires the beloved duo and is quite an accomplishment from all involved. This can proudly be revisited by generations to come as the Lone Ranger rides again and can exemplify the "better Angels of our nature" for all ages.
