The Lone Ranger

Review: The Lone Ranger

A comedy with heart.

A delightfully spoofy movie. A love letter to the cowboy movies of yore. And I don't mean the gritty, high art dramas. Roy Rogers (alas, no singing here, my one complaint) not John Wayne.

The humor is nicely balanced by the action and dramatic bits. An excellent ensemble cast all doing what they do so well.

Relative newcomer, Armie Hammer, turns in a strong performance as an idealistic young lawyer struggling to leave the shadow of his heroic older brother. Hammer's straight man to Johhnny Depps tap dance though slapstick, parody, drama and back works very well.

Park your brain under the seat and enjoy!
