The Lone Ranger (2013)
The long time classic western makes it to the silver screen with big name star power in the likes of Johnny Depp.
For the first time in "Lights Camera Re-Action" history I cannot say that I liked the film for any of our three ratings, "Pay Full Price", "Catch the Matinee" or "Wait for Video"
The movie has some moments of both action and comedy that might grab your attention or tickle your funny bone but in my opinion these moments are too few and far in between.
Johnny Depp's Tonto seemed to rely to much on the characterization he used in Pirates of the Carribbean but it just didn't come off well. The cast was all too often unbelievable along with the the stunts.
As I mentioned this movie received "No Rating" at all from The Flow but if you are all alone on a rainy day you have watched your entire collection three times already you may want to rent a download of the movie so ease you into a lazy afternoon nap.
The Legend of the Lone Ranger (1981)
If you're hankering for some old school western past time then check out The Legend of the Lone Ranger.
An orphan grows up to become an Old West legend as the story of the Lone Ranger comes to the big screen in this western saga featuring Christopher Lloyd and Jason Robards.
Orphaned as a young boy, John Reid struck up a lifelong friendship with a loyal Indian boy named Tonto. Years later, Reid has become a lawyer and returned to the west in order to ensure that vicious murderers such as the Cavendish gang are brought to justice. Having previously murdered Reid's parents, the Cavendish gang proves that they still rule this lawless land when they launch an ambush that leaves the lawyer serious wounded and his Texas Ranger brother dead.
Nursed back to health by his old friend Tonto, Reid dons a mask and sets out to pursue justice anonymously atop his faithful horse Silver. His timing couldn't be better, either, because the Cavendish gang is about to carry out their most ambitious misdeed to date by kidnapping President Ulysses S. Grant (Robards).
Upon learning that the president has been abducted by the most violent gang in the Wild West, the Lone Ranger sets out to settle an old score while rescuing the man who will steer the fate of a nation. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
