This week I got to head in to the big city of Jacksonville and visit the Cinemark Tinseltown theater and preview Disney's The Lone Ranger. I've been extremely excited about the release of The Lone Ranger because I'm a huge fan of Johnny Depp. Out of all of the theaters I've had a chance to review in Tinseltown is by far one of my favorites. The theater was packed and had a great turn out for the movie. Now that I've mentioned I'm a fan of this theater vs. some of the others in the area lets talk about the movie.
The stunts and action scenes were fantastic. Personally I enjoyed the scenery and imagery through out the film. Some breathtaking views for sure . Johnny Depp brought his Pirates of the Caribbean humor to the table . That was just the type I was hoping for. Sexy as ever his make up and character were so good you might not have recognized him had you not known ahead of time. Personally, I did not think this was a movie my kids would love. Adults yes but kids not mine anyway. The theater was packed and many people had brought their children however, and as far as I could tell they all left happy campers.

Here is another quick clip for you! See how good Johnny D. is looking.
I can't really tell you if the story sticks to the original version. I can tell you that this one I very much enjoyed. Just an FYI when the credits roll that's really that. You can head on out of the theater. We stuck around a few minutes thinking there might would be outtakes. Not the case. I thought it was a great movie and I would recommend it for you Mamas or those of you with older children!
