The true story of Whitey Bulger, the brother of a state senator and the most infamous violent criminal in the history of South Boston, who became an FBI informant to take down a Mafia family invading his turf.
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 movie loosely resembles the ceremony driving the "Golden Spike" near Promontory Point Utah. In the movie it ends with the chase where 2 railroad tracks run side by side of each other for a decent length. Any railroad would only build 1 track with a short side track here and there. How this movie actually resembles the Golden Spike is that the two railroad companies actually met but kept building. If you look at google maps you will see 2 tracks that run parallel(but not just next to each other) for quite a few miles east of the ceremony point (being they were paid for each mile built). Union Pacific bought the western half of the new track and quickly abandoned these duplicate tracks built. See more »
Although the plot is inspired by the construction of the first trans-continental railroad in the U.S., the film is clearly not meant to be an accurate representation of the event. Therefore artistic liberties were taken, such as creating the fictional "Transcontinental Railroad Corporation" and relocating the point of completion to Texas rather than Utah. See more »

After the main headline credits, a desert landscape appears and the remainder of the credits scroll over a scene of old Tonto walking very slowly into the distance. See more »
I tend to side with critics often, and usually find they are on target - case in point- Man of Steel - which I had the highest of hopes for, and felt it was mediocre at best. So, I went in to Lone Ranger with low expectations based on reviews I had read from the so called experts. I was a fan of the series as a kid. Was not sure what to expect from this. Well, This is the Lone Ranger movie for the 21st century. It was fantastic. What movie did these critics watch? It set a perfect tone. Depp was terrific. Hammer was pitch perfect - he became grew to be the Lone Ranger. It left me wanting more, and movies rarely do that for me. Spread the word of mouth - we need this movie to have legs so we get a much deserved sequel. Trust me, its GREAT. And my 7 y/o son loved it just as much.
