I was surprised that I enjoyed The Lone Ranger so much. Sure, it was ridiculous, but it made for a fun nostalgic ride. Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp had great chemistry as the Lone Ranger and Tonto respectively, leading a solid cast in what turned out to be the biggest surprise of 2013 for me. Nobody gave this film a chance, which is very unfortunate. It may not have been The Godfather, but it was better than everyone said.
