THE LEGEND OF THE LONE RANGER (Theatrical Release USA 1981)


Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì 

The Legend of the Lone Ranger—good stage settings—runs as an okay film to fill an afternoon. There are a few interesting scenes that team President Ulysses Grant with Buffalo Bill, Wild Bill Hickok, and George Custer which is odd but an interesting concept to add to the film.

The film is about a man and his native American friend who decide to establish law, order, and justice in the west as a team.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

No. The film needs a boost in portrayal and acting. If the audience is looking for a walk down memory lane, then it might work for a childhood return to the Saturday morning format of The Lone Ranger televised series broadcast for children, but expectations run a little higher for a theater release. The movie comes off as superficial.
