On "The Lone Ranger"


From The Dispatch:
It's certainly a fast-paced film with a modern structure, but when Verbinski steps back and lets the sound design do the talking much like the opening scene in Leone's "Once Upon a Time in the West," the film can take your breath away. This is big-budget blockbuster filmmaking the way it ought to be done. The climactic sequence aboard a runaway train, scored with a new arrangement of the iconic "William Tell Overture" by composer Hans Zimmer (whose work here is really superb), is some of the most exciting action we've seen on the big screen in a long time.
