Are you ready for some good, old-fashioned summer adventure? Do you love a classic Western? Or are you just looking for your Johnny Depp fix? Either way, you’re going to have a great time at The Lone Ranger, the new Disney film opening July 3.
“The Lone Ranger”is an edge-of-your-seat adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American 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. Need any further encouragement? The film was brought to you by producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski, the filmmaking team behind the blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise.
The story is told in an imaginative fashion, through the eyes and ears of a little boy hearing a very elderly Tonto detail his adventures with the Lone Ranger. The action in the film is huge and it’s infused with humor throughout. Johnny Depp fans will find echoes of his Jack Sparrow character: Tonto, like Capt. Jack, seems to be one of the only true “good guys” among hundreds of criminals and corrupt officials. All in all, it’s quite a ride. Our nine-year-old was completely captivated from start to finish.
