From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski, the filmmaking team behind the blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, comes Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ “The Lone Ranger,” a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice–taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.
“The Lone Ranger” also stars Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson and Helena Bonham Carter.
What a wild ride! Though there was not much to my memory of the television series, there is plenty of fun chemistry, and one liners as this famous dual comes back to life on screen. Being a big Johnny Depp fan, my teenage daughter has this one on her “favorite movies of the year” list. It didn’t quite make my list, but I did enjoy most of the film. I felt it could have used a little less history lesson, and little more fun. But, it’s definitely one I’m happy to have in our home library. The bonus features on this blu-ray are a ton of fun!
Disney’s The Lone Ranger is avaible NOW on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Copy.
