This film, based on the iconic 1950s TV series gives the Native American warrior Tonto, played by Johnny Depp, top billing. “The Lone Ranger” tells the story of lawman John Reid and how he transforms into the Wild West legend known as the Lone Ranger. When justice is threatened by Butch Cavendish, John (Armie Hammer) teams up with Native American Warrior Tonto to save the day. The story is told by an elderly Tonto years after the Lone Ranger’s reign and begs the question, “Is the legend just a fable? Or, did this crusader of justice really roam the Wild West?” Our KIDS FIRST! Film Critics viewed it last week and, all of them loved it. “This movie is fantastic to its core!” claims Gerry O, age 11. “It is funny, entertaining, and very thrilling,” remarks Raven D, age 16. See their full reviews below.

I already had an idea what this movie would be like, cowboys fighting each other. Based on all the stories about Lone Ranger, I also anticipated one of the characters would be the Indian, Tonto. I was right! This film is worth waiting for – amazing adventure, action, romance. It is funny and has the most gorgeous horse ever!

At first I thought this movie was about a cowboy and Indian fighting bad guys, I was very wrong! It starts off so nicely and ends so action packed!

The adventure begins when it’s 1930 and there’s an old western amusement park. A child is walking around dressed like the Lone Ranger and he goes to this exhibit where he finds Tonto the Indian. Tonto tells this boy about the story of the Lone Ranger who was being held captive in a train. The criminal escapes and a man helps Tonto escape as well. The train crashes but they and the passengers don’t get hurt. This man joins his brother to look for the criminal. The brother and everyone else in the group die but the man, whose name is John, lives. Tonto escapes jail and finds John and what’s called a spirit horse. The two men and the horse go on many adventures and run into many problems (that the horse usually ends up fixing!) as they search for the criminal. Along the way, they get a little surprise!

The movie is immaculate. The actors are great! I mean who doesn’t like Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp?! The cinematography is stupendous! Everything is just fantastic! There’s really nothing to complain about in this movie.

My favorite scene is when Tonto finds all the dead rangers. He digs up little graves and tries to take what he can from them. Thinking all of them are dead he goes to John and he tries to take something and then John wakes up. Tonto is all surprised and just knocks him out and starts putting sand back on him.  The house saves John in this situation, but you have to watch the film to see the most hilarious scene of all.

Since this movie has quite a lot of action and quite a bit of violence as well, I recommend it for ages 12 and up. This movie is fantastic to its core so I give it 5 out 5 stars plus a few more if possible. This movie will be available in theaters everywhere July 3rd
