Saddle up! The Lone Ranger is not the train wreck you have expected. What a ringing endorsement, right? Surprisingly enough I went into this bombastic action-adventure with high hopes, despite knowing how critics tore apart Johnny Depp’s latest vehicle, and I was not disappointed. I am against the general consensus. I guess I could be considered “The Lone Positive Reviewer,” or at least one of the few.

Here are some factors that make Ranger ride into my heart, even if most felt it jumped over a cliff to its doom. Check out my video analysis below and my written thoughts after the jump.

Directed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl), The Lone Ranger stars Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as a masked man of the law who, with Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp), fights greed and corruption in the American Old West.

Produced by Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films, and based on the 1930s radio serial, Verbinski’s adaptation of The Lone Ranger marks the first theatrical film featuring the character in over 30 years.

We found out back in March that Tom Cruise was set to star in The Man From U.N.C.L.E., a movie version of the TV series that aired from 1964 to 1968 that’s being directed by Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, Snatch).

But recently Cruise decided to walk away from the movie to instead focus on Mission: Impossible 5, a franchise also born from a ’60s TV series.

Now comes word that Man of Steel star Henry Cavill has entered into early negotiations to take Cruise’s spot as the Man From U.N.C.L.E. lead.

The Lone Ranger Header

Of all the summer blockbuster films out there, Gore Verbinski‘s The Lone Ranger has to be the most interesting to see. Slapped with production delays, budget cuts, and screenplay rewrites, it seems like the odds were against this film. But four trailers in, and The Lone Ranger still looks like it has that sparkle that Pirates of the Caribbean had, thanks in part to Johnny Depp being cast as Tonto and the huge action sequences that will surely wow audiences.

This final trailer exemplifies exactly why Depp is basically the face of almost very Verbinski movie ever made. The director wasn’t afraid to shy away from admitting that the film will take a Sancho Panza storytelling angle. It also helps to know that Depp is a much more marketable name than Armie Hammer. But that really shouldn’t take away from the fun that is The Lone Ranger.

Check out the trailer below.

Movie: The Movie 2V Image

Last year after the Oscars, Jimmy Kimmel showed off a trailer for a completely fake movie titled Movie: The Movie (watch it here) that looked funnier than most parody movies you’ve seen (or ignored) over the past decade or so. This year, naturally, Kimmel had to show the trailer for the sequel, Movie: The Movie 2V.

The also fake sequel stars a slew of celebrities, including Jessica Chastain, Channing Tatum, Samuel L. Jackson, Armie Hammer, Amanda Seyfried, Bradley Cooper, Gerard Butler, Rachel Weisz, Matt Damon, Kerry Washington, John Krasinski, Chris Rock, Salma Hayek, Bryan Cranston, Jude Law, Jason Schwartzman, Topher Grace, and even Oprah.

Check out the trailer for Movie: The Movie 2V below!

Watch Now: Ride For Justice With ‘The Lone Ranger’ In This Super Bowl Spot

The Lone Ranger Image

Hi-yo Silver! The first TV spot for Walt Disney Pictures’ summer western spectacular The Lone Ranger has premiered during tonight’s Super Bowl and now it is available online for those of us – myself included – who don’t watch football to enjoy.

You can watch the 90-second spot here below.

The studio and director Gore Verbinski definitely put together a humdinger of a teaser here with plenty of action, mythologizing, and even a touch of light-hearted banter from stars Johnny Depp (as Tonto) and Armie Hammer (as the Ranger). The whole “yes-no-yes-no” bit at the end gets tiresome though. At least the focus is on Hammer’s character this time instead of the footage being all “Lookee at Johnny Depp with a bird on his hand and crap” and runaway locomotives, and Depp doesn’t look to be taking this stuff completely seriously. That is a relief.
