My husband and I had the opportunity to preview Disney’s The Lone Ranger recently on a date night. I love the chance to get away and it was a good time for us to preview the movie that the boys have been wanting to see since it is PG-13.
First a Synopsis:
- *From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski, the filmmaking team behind the blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, comes Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ “The Lone</spanbq. Ranger,” a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.
“The Lone</spanbq. Ranger” also stars Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson and Helena Bonham Carter.
A Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films presentation, “The Lone</spanbq. Ranger” is directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and Gore Verbinski, with screen story by Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio and Justin Haythe and screenplay by Justin Haythe and Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio. “The Lone</spanbq. Ranger” releases in U.S. theaters on July 3, 2013.
Mom Review: The movie was a great mix of action and comedy. If you love the Johnny Depp characters like Jack Sparrow then I think you’ll love him as Tonto in Disney’s The Lone Ranger. At first I was thinking that their really wasn’t much blood and gore at all even though there was a lot of shooting (it’s definitely a Western in that respect), but then there was one scene that was pretty intense that involved stabbing and eating of organs by one of the main villains. If you DO choose to take your child and think you’d like to skip this intense scene, I’d take a bathroom break when the brothers go off with a small crew to capture the escaped criminal. As far as the rest of the movie for kids be warned that there is a lot of killing that made even me a bit sad about the building of the railroad, power and money. There was a bit of a brothel scene but nothing too alarming there for a PG-13 rating. If you have older kids that are ok with deaths and shooting scenes that a normal PG-13 rating would warrant I think you’ll be ok with The Lone Ranger.
With all that “mom stuff” said I really liked the movie. It was action packed AND funny. Silver the horse was definitely my favorite character. Loved him and of course Johnny Depp! It definitely kept me interested and wondering what was going to happen next.
