When I first viewed "The Lone Ranger", I was disappointed, to say the least. Not sure how Johnny Depp has managed to hypnotize Hollywood executives into making everything that he is in the Johnny Depp show, but it happened here, and definitely to the movie's detriment. Modernknife fixes that. The movie still isn't the greatest, but Modernknife manages to put the best possible polish on a turd of a movie.
The format that I viewed was a DVD-5. Menu - Curtains open, the logo appears with "Play", Simple, but well done.
Video and audio quality were excellent, even on a DVD-5. No glitches or hard edits that I noticed. So much was cut from the film that I expected problems--I was pleasantly surprised that I couldn't notice most of the cuts, and the ones I did notice were still well-executed.
Story-wise, the best adjective I can use is tight. Modernknife cut the film ruthlessly, and got rid of everything that slowed down the theatrical release. This version works much better. The film is still flawed, but it is now watchable, even enjoyable.
This will be the one that I show my friends. Well done!
i loved the lone ranger as a kid, i used to watch it with my pop.
so when i heard that they were making a movie on the lone ranger i got really exited.
then i heard it was from the people who made the pirates movies my hopes dropped that it would be any good.
then i saw it and it was a bloated mess and all about Tonto and was full of slapstick comedy.
i saw this fanedit and had to give it a try, im so glad that i did.
it was awesome, Modernknife has cut mostly all of the cheese and cut the bloated story to a good strong narrative with no annoying sub plots.
i love the new prologue it really is good and suits the movie.
so i would like to thank modenknife for fixing a movie i was so upset with,
i would and do highly recommend this edit to anyone who wants to see what the movie should have been like when they released it.
