The Lone Ranger * Gore Verbinski (2013)

Posted in action, adventure on by .

If you want some descent, Hollywood enterainment, “The Lone Ranger” is a good option. It looks like this is my first Verbinski/Depp film, but I felt like watching it anyway. Ironically the film mostly thrives on Depp, also in the media, but Depp is not the lone ranger from the title. As you probably heard, Depp plays an American Indian. Almost as a ghost, he helps the lone ranger from the title. Like with “Pirates of the Caribbean” (from which I did see flashes), “The Lone Ranger” is an adventure/action spectacle with a lot of humour, mostly because of the weird Johhny Depp.
I will not say too much about the story, but it plays in the Wild West and involved magnificent views of nature and of course cowboys, Indians and outlaws.
Entertaining and even a little pedantic, since the film shows how ‘progress’ and economic growth has no regard for the rights of indiginous peoples.
