5.0 out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING Film & Critics Wrong!! Read On For Proof "Why"!, August 19, 2013
So called "Professional Critics" slammed what is an Awesome Movie by purposely finding as much fault as they could! The Only Faults Truly Lay with their ignorance of this Movie's concept & purpose! I grew up loving the TV Series, and any ole films! I've seen TOO Many Critics reference/compare This Film to Those, when in fact, it Never Should Have Been!! THIS MOVIE is based on the 1940's RADIO SHOW. The folks who listened to that already knew things the later TV Series & film Audiences did not! The Latter results were based on the radio foundation. Basically, we all "Came in on situations already formed and happening", without ever knowing "The Beginning"! Example: TV Series always ended with The Lone Ranger giving the poor victim's survived loved ones 2 Silver Bullets. Silver was $$$! Why silver & where did he get all that from?! Was he as wealthy as a "Bruce Wayne"?! To just keep handing these extravagant items out?! This Film takes us to "The Beginning"- it explains & answers many Key Points relevant to what the later films & TV Series were based & continued upon. It's "the Formation"! Ask yourselves, "In a time when Texas had Many Rangers, Why This One?!" He wasn't born a hero, "How did he get to be known as one?" At a time there was tension and fighting between US Settlers and Native American Indians, "How did a White Man end up Partners with an Indian?! Why not another Texas Ranger?!" "How did he even become a Ranger in the 1st Place?" "Why him and not somebody else?" "Why not just Tonto being the only Hero?" Also, "There were many Indians occupying the lands. Why Tonto and not some other Indian?!" "Why not Tonto being partners with another Indian?!" "Why did this Indian partner with this White Man?" "Where did their horses come from and why did the Lone Ranger specifically choose his horse's name as Silver?!" (They don't mention Tonto's horse, but we know it's Scout! I bet if there'd been a sequel, we'd know why!). "What drives a man to act as he does, to change his whole life and why does he decide to continue being "The Lone Ranger" with his mask & Indian Companion when there are Still other Texas Rangers throughout the land?" "You've also got the Calvary and Huge Industries with Their Own Privately Hired & Paid Security. Why doesn't he choose to join with them? Why still an Indian?!" It's Socially Wrong for Both their Peoples to work together, yet They Are! "Why not regular available bullets? Why Silver bullets?! Where'd he get all that silver from?!" THIS Movie answers ALL and More!!! I'd compare it to John Wayne in "Rio Lobo"!! It's Action Packed, well written & Cast, Adventurous, Excellent Timed Humor in parts (just like Rio Lobo), and Great Stunts and displays!!! Gore Verbinski keeps to "The Times" it's all supposed to be happening in an Accurate Historical Way! If you loved the TV Series, great! But, you've missed how it all started!!! The Beginning is brilliantly and entertainingly told from the Viewpoint of an Older Tonto- as he saw from his experience. This, coming "From an Uneducated Savage" makes for a more interesting of a tale than had the Highly Collegic Lone Ranger had told it! Which also answers "Why did a Highly Educated Lawyer Graduate choose to be Companion with a Non-Educated Wilder Man?!" The "Pro Critics" were WRONG & THIS isn't "Just about Tonto"- "It's about The Lone Ranger and their getting together!" Depp doesn't "Have Tonto only steal the show"- Army Hammer perfectly balances & bounces off of Johnny Depp! The end result is they compliment eachother! The horse is a Huge Star in his own right, too & works with All! Every person Cast is "Dead On Perfect for their roles!". You will have many answers, while being Highly Entertained!!! I plan on Buying this when it becomes available. In closing: A few Movies "Top Critics" gave Most Amount of Negative Reviews: "The Wizard of Oz", "Casa Blanca", "Star Wars", "Titanic, "The Godfather, Part 2", "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest", "Jaws", and "Taxi Driver"!!! They are SO Wrong on This, Too!!!!!!!!

I so agree with you. They had a special on the making of the movie shown on TV before it was released. The crew looked like they had a GREAT time. I never base my movie going on critics reviews. Since everything is subjective, I can't believe the public bases their movie going on what the critics say. I also will be buying the movie as soon as it's released. I just loved it!
