It’s as if you are standing alone on a high ledge looking into the abyss when you finish a project as huge as The Lone Ranger. It doesn’t matter if there are deep pockets supporting your directorial efforts because there is so much at stake.
Films such as these represent a major studio’s best efforts to deliver a product in hope of great reward; knowing there can be a huge loss if the mark is missed. Critics examine details with nothing to lose and everything to gain if they pick up on what is going to be the public sentiment determined by box office returns.
I hope this film does well and Disney is able to continue with what is seen as a natural progression of follow on movies. All will be known within a few days. Meanwhile, sit back take time to enjoy it if you want and see it for what it is, pure entertainment.
The Lone Ranger is a 2013 American action-adventure western movie, based on the 1930s radio show and popular 1950’s TV series. The film is produced by Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films and directed by Gore Verbinski.
