Well since it's "avertible" avert it I will :)

Low, very low expectations for this. Maybe it'll benefit the film

This movie looks awful.  Lone Ranger isn't supposed to be "serious" by any means, but this looks like Wild Wild West all over again, just without the cool steampunk gadgets (or Salma Hayek in a corset).

I grew up watching the reruns of the classic Lone Ranger TV series with Clayton Moore, (and John Hart), and Jay Silverheels. The director of this latest effort to bring the Lone Ranger to the big screen is trying too hard to make this film look like an adventure. Despite the classic TV series being campy and at times just plain hokey, it had spirit, it made sense, it was fun, and sometimes it even made you think. This upcoming spectacle looks like one big mess with no soul.

The Lone Ranger should have been done with a smaller budget and a more personal localized script.

Remember when Johnny Depp was cool and made movies like the Ninth Gate or Ed Wood? Remember when you thought, yeah, I could deal with Armie Hammer as Batman in a Justice League movie? What the hell happened????
