Generally i get a stack of dvds at xmas and last night i dug out Disneys Lone Ranger from the pile and watched it, now for those of you who didnt know or have forgot, this film got panned by critics and also was in industry terms a flop( it broke about even box office vs budget).
Now i really enjoyed this film, firstly it wasnt a "Disney" film, it was pretty violent in places, mainly gun and knife related, but tame compared to Django but enough to see that this wasnt a "kids" film, had a decent story and plot, plenty of humour but plenty of serious elements, it was a good old fashioned western, not over violent and overly gritty and definately worth a look at as a switch off brain pop corn movie.
One thing that struck a cord is that this movie highlights how badly treated the native Americans were, obviously this film is a work of fiction but i wonder if some part of historic elements of that period prevented it doing better at the box office, also there seems to be a misconception that Tonto is the lead and the Lone Ranger is his side kick, granted Depp is the bigger star and a massive box office draw, but Armie Hammer is far from playing his side kick in the film, both are excellent and have excellent chemistry and i would say have pretty equally important parts in the film to play and share most of the screen time well.
Anyway , check it out, rent it out or buy a copy, but seriously i think it might surprise you,its a very well executed western, some very nice stunts and action scenes intermixed with some almost silent cinema comedy elements and full of a few things i havent seen before dome with horses and trains.
