Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer: Critics to Blame for Lone Ranger Flop

by at .  Updated at . Comments

According to the The Lone Ranger reviews, the movie was awful. According to almost everyone who saw the film, the movie was awful. 

It had moments that were watchable, even entertaining, but in the end, the overall picture was one that didn't quite measure up to the legend and history of The Lone Ranger.

Therefore, it failed. Spectacularly.

That isn't stopping Lone Ranger stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, from going on record as blaming the critics and their negative reviews for their box office failure.

As you can see, it isn't just the film's stars!

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski got in on the fun as well. Did these four all meet out in the hallway and synchronize their watches or something?

You have to imagine that Armie Hammer's publicist foresaw the blowback that statements like "It's got to the point with American critics that if you aren't as smart as Plato, you're stupid. That seems like a sad way to live your life" would get, which is why she attempted to stop him. 

There was no one there to even try and stop Johnny Depp from declaring that the critics who reviewed the film had formed their opinions 7 or 8 months beforehand and didn't even attempt to change them after seeing the film. 

That publicist? She's probably seen The Lone Ranger and agrees with the critics. And the public. The Lone Ranger was not good. Blaming the critics does nothing but put a spotlight on that. 

Bad move Armie and Johnny. Bad move indeed.
