Our Review:
We really enjoyed this movie! Johnny Depp is such a funny actor. He plays Tonto and does a great job. There is plenty of action and comedy in this film. I loved when the white horse named Silver basically brings John Reid (Lone Ranger) back to life after he was shot and left for dead. Tonto is trying to get Silver to pick John's brother, a strong warrior, but he keeps taking John's white hat and dropping it in front of him saying he is the one. I loved all the action on the trains. It was fun watching them try to unhook the different train cars without falling off the train. One of the funniest parts of the movie was the end when The Lone Ranger says his famous saying, hi ho Silver away and Tonto says never do that again.

There are a bunch of extras on the Blu-ray also. The Bloopers are pretty funny. There are deleted scenes, Riding The Rails Of The Lone Ranger and plenty more!
