If you plan to go to “The Lone Ranger,” and you're of a certain age, it's best to put the 1949-57 television series out of your head. This movie has very little in common with the spirit or tone of that show.
In fact, they should have retitled the movie “Tonto.” Johnny Depp, as Tonto, is clearly the lead character, not the sidekick — smarter and craftier than his Kemosabe (that's Native American for faithful friend).
