There are some which would be shocked to know that the critically panned remake of the Lone Ranger is actually nominated for 2 Academy Awards: Best Make up and Hairstyling and Best Visual Effects. The fact that it is also nominated for a few Razzies was no surprise. I must admit that the make up for Tonto as an old man was quite good – perhaps better than Johnny Knoxville in Bad Grandpa. For an action film, it moved rather slow. The humor was forced. Including an outlaw with a preference for wearing pieces of women’s clothing was unnecessary. The running jokes were tiresome. The storyline got too convoluted.
While I am glad that I did not pay to see this movie in the theater, it was over 2 hours of my life I will not get back.
