About The Lone Ranger
Johnny Depp wanders round the Old West with a bird on his head as one half of the brave duo made famous by TV and radio serials in the '30s and '50s. John Reid (Armie Hammer) is an idealistic lawyer who becomes a masked vigilante after a brush with death. A group of Texas Rangers, including John's brother (James Badge Dale), go on a mission to capture dangerous criminal Butch Cavendish (William Fichtner) and John tags along. But their party is ambushed and all the rangers are killed. John is left for dead and rescued by a renegade Commanche named Tonto (Depp) who has his own agenda. Tonto tells him that as people think he has died John must hide his identity, so he puts on a mask and becomes The Lone Ranger. Together, he and Tonto track down Butch and uncover a conspiracy.
