Yeah. Its one of those "love it or hate it" scenarios. Seems there's no middle ground from the forums

I had low expectations going in from word of mouth and reviews while it was in theaters, so on that note i actually enjoyed it. It took the pressure off so I could just sit back and enjoy Micheal Bay-esk explosions and action. It helped that visually it looks great on Blu-ray.

Re: The Lone Ranger - Blu-ray Revew

I did see it and enjoyed it for the mindless silly escapism I sometimes desire.
The movie may have been overly ambitious, and who knows how much remained on the cutting room floor (is there a 5 hour director's cut in the offing), but Mike hit the nail on the head; editing out about 20 minutes could really have brought this movie up a notch.

I kind of liked the story telling mechanism homage to "Little Big Man," and the sound and chase scenes were stunning. As for the story itself, I thought making John Reid an idiot attorney took away any nobility the character had in the past.

As for Armie Hammer; you don't really have to act if you're the great-grandson of Armand Hammer of Occidental Petroleum, but, then again, the part was written for him to look like an idiot (and not an endearing one).

All in all this is a "you should see it and decide for yourself" type of movie; I could give it a thumbs sideways, I would.

Great job on the review, Mike.
