Promotional photos of Tonto communicated that the film bastardized the story we
all grew up with. It was clear to me that the Lone Ranger in the movie was
nothing like what we liked about the original story. The younger generation that
are the majority of film viewers today knew nothing about the real Lone Ranger
and Tonto so why would they be interested? This combination - not the critics-
is what doomed this film. The producers' turned off the primary audience
for a Lone Ranger film. Tonto and the Lone Ranger were virtuous and good guys
seeking to right wrongs and support justice. Those concepts of course are
contrary to what Hollywoodmhas become.
How about the movie itself?
Movie critics stole the election?!? Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk...
This movie's lack of success at the box office can't all be blamed on
the critics. It truly is just not that great of a film. A few nice special
effects, but a rather weak story-line.
They stole an election last year why not kill off a movie.
