First of all, ignore any negative comments you may have heard from over-analytical/miserable critics. If all you want this summer is an adventure packed yet still entertaining story with the classic feel of the good Old West, then this is the film you’re looking for. Johnny Depp does not disappoint with his always hilarious one-liners thankfully making an appearance in this film, only this time coming from a Native American character, as opposed to a pirate or the new age Willy Wonka. Armie Hammer came out of nowhere with an exceptional performance, including a mixture of humor, charm and the studliness required to portray a hero. Despite the belief that this is a children’s film, the PG-13 rating is good proof that it will appeal older audiences. Ignore the nonsense you are hearing of, “a bland script,” or “lackluster cast,” the movie is fun, entertaining and at times laugh-out-loud funny, and isn’t that all we really hope for when we take time to escape to the movies?
