The Lone Ranger Blu-ray Combo Pack Review
Time is Ticking, the Tension is High, and the Ultimate Showdown Between Good and Evil is About to Explode in The Lone Ranger. Read Kidzworld's review of the Blu-ray Combo Pack!
Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer star in The Lone Ranger, from Jerry Bruckheimer Films and Director Gore Verbinski. It’s a wild ride of high velocity action, explosions and gunfights that brings the famed masked legend to life through brand-new eyes. The Lone Ranger (Hammer), the last of his kind, teams with Tonto (Depp), a dark and mysterious vigilante, to seek vengeance after justice has failed them. It’s a runaway train of epic surprises, as these two unlikely heroes must learn to work together before the ultimate showdown between good and evil explodes.
The Bottom Line
Action, adventure, humor, storytelling, Johnny Depp - we've got to say, The Lone Ranger has a little something for everyone, no matter what your taste in movies happens to be. The Lone Ranger is the story of the ultimate lawman turned masked legend, and what seemed like a long movie in theaters is actually the perfect film to curl up to on the couch during your winter holidays while it's cold outside - there's nothing like sipping hot cocoa while watching a couple of old west heroes bust in on the bad guys, guns blazing! Many critics were torn on this film, and we've got to say we think it was misunderstood - at its best it almost rivals historical fiction action films like the Indiana Jones movies. Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter are as watchable as ever, and the bumbling character who finds himself is a story we can all get behind in our hearts, right?
The blu-ray combo pack features some fantastic extra material, more than we expected even, with a blooper reel and deleted scene, and the most fascinating by far, a featurette on how the cast learned to shoot guns and ride like they lived in the iconic Old West called "Becoming a Cowboy." The Lone Ranger Blu-ray Combo Pack definitely makes the grade, and is worth taking home, or giing a second chance if you weren't on board before.
