The Lone Ranger

The Lone Ranger
An aged Tonto, traveling in a Wild West Show, tells the tale of John Reid. As a young lawyer, John travels west to meet up with his brother, Dan, a Texas Ranger. John soon learns the law of the west is different than what he lives by when he, along with his brother and the other Texas Rangers are attacked. Left for dead by the outlaws, John is helped by the unscrupulous Tonto, and the two together seek to bring justice to the killers. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “The Lone Ranger”.

· At the beginning of the movie, a young boy, Will, is looking at the Tonto exhibit. Tonto startles the boy and he drops his bag of peanuts. Tonto repeats the word “mistake”, and the close-up of the floor shows Will’s bag of peanuts is next to his right foot. It cuts to a farther view as Tonto begins to point and the peanut bag is on the floor, a couple feet in front of Will. Tonto says, “make trade” and Will bends down to pick up the bag which is next to his feet again.

· Butch Cavendish stabs Dan and presumably eats his heart. In the views of Dan when Cavendish wipes away the blood, his eyes are half open. One of the other gang members takes the pendant from around his neck and Dan’s eyes are now completely closed.

· After an injured John grabs him, Tonto hits him in the head with a rock and proceeds to toss sand on him. A few moments later, the “spirit horse” arrives with the white hat. Tonto is talking to the horse and makes the “half-wit” comment. A view of John still in the “grave” shows there is no sand on him. The sand is back when the horse taps him with his hoof.

· Cole and John (now the Lone Ranger) are in the railcar talking to Captain Fuller. Cole is talking and walks forward. He’s only a few inches away from John’s gun handle. It cuts to Fuller when he asks if he’s “capable of that” and then to a wider view of Cole and John. Cole is now back in his original position, farther away from John.

“The Lone Ranger” (2013) stars Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, William Fichtner, Tom Wilkinson, Ruth Wilson, Helena Bonham Carter, James Badge Dale and Bryant Prince. It’s rated PG-13 for sequences of intense action and violence, and some suggestive material.
