The Lone Ranger and his faithful companion Tonto ride again in four new clips from Gore Verbinski’s reboot of the popular Western character. The first three sets up the movie and relationship between Hammer’s character and Depp’s Tonto, and is what you probably expected going into the movie. Lots of wild, crazy action with ridiculous stunts, and everything works out in the end — if just barely. Plus, some wacky comedy with courtesy wacky music.
Hey, it’s a Disney big-budget Summer movie. What did you expect? Something gritty or depressing? Pfft. Barking up the wrong train there, hoss.

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.
