Gore Verbinski may have tried to build off the success of "The Pirates of the Caribbean," and is successful once more. Parents be prepared this movie is surprisingly violent and includes more blood than present in most action films. Butch Cavendish not only shoots people, but is reputed for eating their body parts, he knifes someone's heart out, cleavage-bearing corsets, a scene in a brothel, and exclamations, of "Injuns," "harlot," "d--n," "drunks," "a--," "h--l," "heathens," "savages," "oh my God," and "idiot." This movie is really good, although it may seem overlong to some parents (who may end up watching the insides of their eyelids before the credits role), however it does feature extensive action violence present in most action-adventure/western film (as I said earlier) and intrigueing action sequences that'll enthrall teens as some similar sequences did in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" quadrilogy. Although my dad really liked the plot ad representation of characters in the old TV series, he didn't mind when it was changed, ALOT. All in all, this is a decent film, and is worth at lest one watch. I dislike, however, the chemistry between the Armie Hammer (the Lone Ranger) and Jhonny Depp (Tonto) (but Depp's performance was sensational). In comparison to the films released in the months of july, it's just as good as "Pacific Rim," and WAY better than both "R.I.P.D." and "White House Down." P.S. I Know "White House Down" was release on June 28, I just wanted to include it because it was released within 5 days of "The Lone Ranger."
