THE LONE RANGER. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Apparently it is being dubbed a "box office flop." I just don't see why. It was definitely action packed. good story line and it had funny moments. Now the media "know-it-alls are questioning Johnny Depp's value as an actor. Really? Did anyone else see this movie? What did you think?

I haven't seen it yet, but I am going to. It looked like a good movie and I love Johnny Depp!! - Scothran  79.1 #72 5:41AM
I plan on going this weekend regardless of what anyone says. My daughter has been asking to see it since they started showing the preview. I mean it can't be that bad...it's Johnny Depp. - leveretttltl  37.9 #107 6:15AM
I saw it a few days ago. And I complety agree with u. I enjoyed the movie. Some parts I wasn't to happy with. But not enough to make me not like the movie . - woody143  15.9 #174 6:30AM
I want to see it, too. Critics annoy me sometimes. Let people make up their own minds whether or not they like a movie. I've seen tons of movies that have received bad reviews and publicity and thoroughly enjoyed them personally. I highly doubt this one would be any different. - mrsincredible  914.5 #3 6:32AM
So true. In fact it seems for me if the critics don't like it then I usually love it lol - azcupcake  74.2 #3784 6:41AM
I know, right?! Me, too!! - mrsincredible  914.5 #3 7:00AM
It's a flop because it cost about 225 MILLION TO PRODUCE. It grossed just $48.9 million over the five-day July 4 holiday. Even worse, it made only $29.4 million from Friday to Sunday. That's why it's considered a flop. It couldn't even make 50 million over a Holiday weekend. - IndyandMarion  1257.4 #1 7:09AM
Sorry. Forgot to mention that Disney is set to lose 150 MILLION on the film. Because of its performance. This next part is based off what I've read and seen in trailers for TLR. I have no desire to see the movie. As far as Depp is concerned...you've an actor who's had four flops in three years (The tourist, The Rum diaries, Dark Shadows and now Lone Ranger). So people have every right to question his staying power. The problem is that he's played Sparrow in four movies in ten years. It's a character that everyone loves. And there's the problem, he's been type cast into that role. So it's difficult for any movie now to sell if its not him as Jack. Now. The problem with the Lone Ranger is this: It's too much like POTC. A lot of action. A lot of crazy stunts. ANNNND Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow. As Tonto. Yes. I'm one of those people. Now. Go back and watch the trailer. Every trailer is about Tonto. So was the potc trailers. All of his mannerisms. His running movements...are similar to jack sparrow. The thing is people DON'T WANT Johnny as Jack sparrow as someone else. The marketing team behind this movie was worse than Tangled (if anyone remembers that). The movie is based around train tycoons. TRAINS. Where was the train on DLs railway? Where was it at WDW? WHERE WAS THE COAST TO COAST TRAIN? The marketing for that could have been insanely awesome! Bottom line is, Disney tried to deliver use potc in the old west, with a relatively unknown lead, with a supporting cast mash up and a bad marketing plan and they paid for it. Johnny returns to form in 2015 with potc 5, and sparrow will sail off into the sunset with bags and bags of gold from that adventure and save Disney once again. - IndyandMarion  1257.4 #1 8:02AM
Its sad you say that indi because i am of the opion that you should judge a movie by what it just makes in the usa. In Australia its in the top 3 popular movies as we are in the middle of july school holidays and you should watch movies for what what it is and stop compairing it to others. Yes mr depp was awesome in potc but if long ranger was made before potc would you have said the same thing so take the movie with a different set of thoughts instead of comparing with another. Every time i read a critic's comment i am disgusted to see them wrote such and such was great in this but sucked in this. Peolpe need to judge a movie on what there seing and not what they have allready seen. So sorry indi just because it may be a flop in the usa it might not be a flop anywhere else. - puddy77  222.5 #1577 10:25AM
What a movie does in the US makes it an automatic flop everywhere else, and the earnings I posted were ONLY in the USA. The same would go for a movie in Australia. If a movie was made for Australia, then released everywhere else. If it flops in Australia, it's a loss everywhere else because the money it makes goes mainly to X location, not back to Australia. As far as my Lone Ranger's Depp vs POTC Depp, it seems that is the general "voice" of the public. Depp has been cast to some really bad decisions lately. That's all it is. The thing is, the public, and critics both do it. You're in a position where you're expected to deliver every time. If you don't, people are going to look at the last movie you did and compare it. Well, why was his acting in Tonto horrible, forced and seemed like another Jack Sparrow. While in Sleepy Hollow, he was enveloped in that roll. He seemed genuinely scared of the horseman. What was different that made him want to do Sleepy Hollow, while he "phoned in" his performance in The Lone Ranger. Its things like that. When you're paid to do things, you're expected to perform the same every time. Different character, sure, but you're still supposed to give that same amount of emotion and feeling to whatever roll it is. - IndyandMarion  1257.4 #1 10:57AM
I hope they get it together... after all JD's success lately, I'd hate for that to be it. - mrsincredible  914.5 #3 11:03AM
No but I love Johnny and I will see ( one day when I have a day off hopefully before it leaves theaters ) - 5disneylovers  907.8 #5 11:41AM
