While it’s not the worst film of the year, The Lone Ranger is certainly a joyless, uninteresting and bloated mess.
Ever since Disney struck gold with Pirates of the Caribbean back in 2003, they have since been trying to replicate its successful formula. Even though I enjoyed John Carter, both it and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time were box office disappointments to say the least. However, now that Disney has reunited Pirates of the Caribbean cohorts Johnny Depp, writing duo Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio along with Oscar-winning director Gore Verbinski (Rango), they might have another chance. Is The Lone Ranger the gem they have been desperately hoping for?
