Movie Review - The Lone Ranger (2) -


The Ranger (Hammer) is a pure-hearted but naive (having an innocence about life, and a lack of experience).  He learns something from Tonto and Tonto learns from him also.

The bad guys in this movie are not only outlaws, but the U.S cavalry (horse-riding soldiers) who kill Indians for no reason, and big American railroad companies who destroy nature and culture to make money.

In the 1870s in the west of America, the railroad was built from coast to coast (east to west), and changed the country forever...

In this film, there are a lot of funny and exciting parts, but it is a long movie (about 2 hours and 30 minutes), and slows down in parts.  If 40 minutes had been removed from the movie, it would have been more effective.

The Lone Ranger is an old character in America, created for radio in the 1930s, and already made into TV dramas and other movies.

Tonto calls the Ranger "Kemosabe"  which may mean "scout" in Indian language.  The famous William Tell overture is the theme music, used effectively in the movies climax (most imprtant moment)...                       (G.K)
