Movie Review: The Lone Ranger 

There are those who might say that Johnny Depp just couldn't give up Captain Jack Sparrow and so when he couldn't convince them to make another pirate movie, he got them to make The Lone Ranger and snuck the Captain in as an Indian sidekick. Those people might include NUVO reviewer Ed Johnson-Ott who only awarded the movie two stars and had this to say:

"The Lone Ranger is a mess. There are entertaining moments, to be sure, but oh what you have to sit through to see them. The film is too long, overwritten, too bombastic and too violent for its PG-13 rating. It's not fun."
