Arch Campbell and the summer blockbusters
The summer movie season hits the halfway point with a new treatment of the Lone Ranger starring Johnny Depp as Tonto.
In this update, Tonto plays the smart one while the Lone Ranger's a bit of an empty mask. Johnny Depp goes mostly for wisecracking comic laughs. Army Hammer plays John Reid, who comes to the west to enforce the law.
Ambushed with a group of Texas Rangers, he dons the famous mask to keep the outlaws from knowing he survived.
Arch Campbell has the full review and other previews of summer blockbusters.
