I would have loved
to have seen a proper, big budget Lone Ranger movie, but the way the critics describe it makes it sound WAY too much like the Pirates sequels for my taste-- bloated, way too long, unnecessarily convoluted with too many boring subplots and side characters, and cartoonish, over the top action you don't believe a second of.
And the way they turned the Lone Ranger himself into a bumbling idiot just makes me want to punch someone.
Granted, the critics weren't too kind to MOS either, which I loved. But at least that movie wasn't made by the team behind the Pirates sequels.
I agree with everything you have said! I was looking forward to a good big budget Lone Ranger movie and what bothers me the most that they turned the Lone Ranger, the main character into a buffoon!!
