THE LONE RANGER Movie Review




Back in Texas right around the year 1869, a legend that defined America was born. The stuff of heroes, the pursuit of justice, and a timeless musical composition is what it’s all about. It’s the old, Wild West complete with cowboys and Indians, and the developing railroad system connecting East to West. Starting with an interesting and somewhat surprising intro, the movie is mystic, dramatic, and plenty adventurous with a solid chuckle here and there. It is a well made quality movie that entertains and inspires. It is a new look at a classic tale appropriately tackled by the same team that gave us the incomparable Pirates of the Caribbean series, Disney Studios and Gore Verbinski. Comparing Ranger to Pirates would be unfair, but of course you know I’m going to do it anyway. I find Pirates to have the lead in entertainment and story quality, not that Ranger is bad, just that Pirates is better. You could also compare this to Mask of Zorro. While watching this film it kept reminding me of Zorro and you might know why when you see it. I don’t really want to give too much away so I’ll just leave it at that. Other aspects of a film that always help set the mood and transport you to another place are good cinematography and good film locations. In this case we have both. We are treated to stunning backdrops in Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico for example. And then there’s the music, specifically and officially known as the William Tell Overture, more popularly known as the Lone Ranger tune. Originally composed by Gioachino Rossini, there aren’t too many works that inspire and motivate as much as this piece. In the movie it is used at just the right time to do exactly that and it is easily the best part of the movie. READ FULL REVIEW >>
