‘The Lone Ranger’ a gem despite box office naysayers

Movie Review

(Continued) —

In the end, there’s nothing here to overthink. Each character adds just enough to move the scenes along be it the love interest Rebecca Reid (Ruth Wilson), the rather mysterious Latham Cole (Tom Wilkinson) and for extra snarkyness, a brothel madam named Red Harrington (Helena Bonham Carter).

Another salute goes out to Hans Zimmer, who in many ways actually nails this soundtrack even better than he did “Man of Steel” with a downright amazing alteration of the William Tell Overture. I highly recommend it as something for the whole family as it is no less than a fitting tribute (the best example being why the mask never comes off) and in this reviewer’s opinion the better of the two films that debuted the week of July 4th. This earns “The Lone Ranger” three and a half out of five “Hi-Ho-Silvers!”
