THE Lone Ranger stars Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer as The Lone Ranger.

This is distributed by Disney and is there last theatrical 2D film since 2011's The Muppets.

It is directed by Gore Verbinski who did the first three Pirates films, also distributed by Disney.

The Lone Ranger has scored terribly with critics, but I had a load of fun!

It is the summer season for films.

The summer season usually consists of fun, loud and vibrant films.

The Lone Ranger is for sure fun, it's loud... and extremely vibrant.

I didn't expect much going into the Lone Ranger, yet, I expected quite a fun ride.

Johnny Depp was my highlight. He happens to be my favourite actor, and he stole the show!

Yet, I see simularties between his character Tonto and a character he played in the Pirates films, Captain Jack Sparrow.

But his performance was funny, charming and witty.

Armie Hammer was also good in the film, but, not as good as Johnny Depp.

I thought the pairs comedic timing was spot on.

The duo, I think, will go down as one of the best of all time... in my books anyway.

Gore Verbinski definitely hits well with cinematography and style, yet story and script lacked.

But who on earth went to see this movie for the darn script?

The Lone Ranger has impressive visual style, yet lacked substance.

The Lone Ranger cost nearly $250 million dollars to make, and in the USA it only made $30 million in it's opening weekend.

For a film that didn't cost $250 million dollars to make, that would be great!

But because The Lone Ranger costed way too much, there is a very slim chance it will make it's money back.

Although, the latest Pirates of the Caribean film didn't do so well in the USA, yet did well in the foreign markets.

Yet, The Lone Ranger has a slim chance of doing well overseas as The Lone Ranger is more of an American story.

The Lone Ranger has a strong first act, a lousy second act and a charming third act.

It started off so well, then it lost it in the second act, but it won me over again during the ending.

Overall, The Lone Ranger is everything you could want from a summer season blockbuster, check it out.
