"The Lone Ranger”: 3 points for parents
Violence/gore — Being a Western, there are many shootouts and fistfights. A few sucker punches are thrown. Characters die in this film. Once again filmmakers find a way to have bloodless injuries. Some characters are ruthless and do not care about the consequences of their actions. Explosions take some lives. Two men have a heavy beam fall on their heads and crush them. They are shown sticking out from under the beam. A group of Indians charges a group of cavalry. The scene does not end well for them.
Drinking/gambling — Scenes take place in a brothel where men are playing cards and drinking.
Sensuality — The women in the brothel are scantily dressed above the waist and dresses are raised to show a few legs. This includes one leg that is not real but does have a weapon inside.
