Movie – The Lone Ranger: C+

lone rangerC+
The first Pirates of the Carribean film managed to find the right combination of campy whimsy and simple entertainment to make for a fun movie. They never quite replicated the formula in the sequels. Nor did they now after turning it into a western based on an ancient show the target demographic has never heard of. Johnny Depp and that pirates-brand action are slopply applied to a boring plot littered with western tropes. It’s sandwiched by ridiculous train action pieces, which are the best parts of the film (the second of which is aided by the Lone Ranger “theme”, the William Tell Overture.) with the trimmings in the middle tasting bland.
