The Lone Ranger Should Be Shot
Review by Susan Escalante

Before you want to shoot me for the title of this blog, let’s keep in mind that the original premise of The Lone Ranger is a mild cowboys-and-“Indians” story for children. For a movie with so much violence, this movie should be one of its own victims.

Because it is staged and rated as a family film, I heard young children talking behind me and thought of them often as the bad guy carved out the deputy’s heart and ate it with his bare hands, six more Texas Rangers were killed in an ambush, and a complete “Indian” tribe living in peace by a river was massacred for greed of silver.

The bad guys were aplenty and there were no consequences for their numerous bad deeds. The head mistress of the brothel was one of the good guys and Tonto, the sidekick, was a mentally-ill Native American who was supposed to save the day. The movie was mostly boring, with a few attempts at humor.

I would never waste my two-plus hours to see it again or encourage my friends to waste their time.

The only refreshing image in the whole movie was the white horse. As usual, Johnny Depp did a great job acting, but with his face covered the whole time in face-paint we could not even enjoy his good looks.

Gilbert Cruz at Vulture.com wrote more foes of the movie in a piece called, “The Lone Ranger Represents Everything That’s Wrong With Hollywood Busters.”

If you decide to see it in spite of these reviews, puhl-lease get a babysitter. This is not a movie for children at all!

And, really, is this even in Texas? It looks more like Utah or Arizona!

Just saw this movie on Netflix last night. I swore I wasn’t going to stay up and complete the movie because we started it so late, but even though it was a little slow, I got drawn into the story and did end up staying up late.

The story is about a man who loses his job after working 15 years toward a promotion. Devastated, his wife suggested that he complete the book that he had started. I don’ t want to give away too much of the story, but I can say that he finished the book and it was a complete success! Yay!

But that’s not even the story. Haha! The story is a clever plot developed by Richard Paul Evans about how a person changes during and after huge business success. It’s a story about how our ego can sneak in there and make just enough difference to throw off our priorities and things that make us truly happy.

The acting was good and it was great to see Christopher Lloyd play a key part in the film. All the characters were believable.

If you are a person who likes to think deeply about human nature and how we inter-relate with one another, then you will like this movie!
