The Texas Rangers chase down a gang of outlaws led by Butch Cavendish, but the gang ambushes the Rangers, seemingly killing them all. One survivor is found, however, by an American Indian named Tonto, who nurses him back to health. The Ranger, donning a mask and riding a white stallion named Silver, teams up with Tonto to bring the unscrupulous gang and others of that ilk to justice.

This movie being a major box office bomb that it was definitely wasn't worth the money that was put into it. Most of that $225 million put into making this film was probably to pay Johnny Depp's salary. Depp was pretty good in it just not as Tonto. It was pretty ridiculous for the casting director to think that Depp could pull off being an Indian. Why Tom Wilkinson always seems to be the bad guy I don't know. At this point every time you see him in a movie you know that he is the main bad guy of the film. Lets be honest he'll never do another role where he's as good as he was in the Patriot.

The Lone ranger was not as bad as many people are saying, it has its humour, action and a good plot. The original story is closely followed by the film and has many of the same characters, one being Tonto played by Johnny Depp, Johnny gave life to this character like he does with almost anything he plays, he made Tonto funny yet had emotion especially when talking about Tonto's tribe, the characters are developed well and the chemistry between all the leading parts is good. I would recommend this film to anyone, never mind what the critics are saying. Although spending 225 million was excessive even for a disney film.
