Who is the man behind the mask? Native American warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp), who rides by his side insuring justice in the wild west, may be the best person to explain the legend of the Lone Ranger.
Why Is The Lone Ranger Rated PG-13?
The Lone Ranger is rated PG-13 for sequences of intense action and violence, and some suggestive material.
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Lone Ranger...
Violence: Scenes of on-screen shootings, beatings, stabbings and other carnage are seen throughout this movie with some detailed blood effects. A dying man is cut open by another who removes his heart (not seen)—it is implied that his assailant eats human flesh (blood shown). A man near death is knocked unconscious and later dragged, with his head on the ground, behind a horse that drops excrement that ends up stuck in his hair. An Indian tribe rescues two men from death in the desert—the men later ambush their village (not shown) leaving only burnt tents, corpses (men, women and children) and destruction behind. Two men are killed when their heads are crushed under a large beam—no explicit details are shown. A woman and child are slapped by men and are threatened with other violence. Many secondary characters, including a religious figure, are shot. A man vomits. Explosions occur. Characters are buried up to their necks in sand and left to die. Scorpions crawl across men’s faces. Frequent slapstick styled violence occurs on train cars resulting in death, injury, property damage and moments of peril. Bunny rabbits are portrayed as aggressive and violent.
Sexual Content: A scene within a brothel shows many women wearing skimpy period costumes in sensual poses with men. Some sexual innuendo is included in the dialog. A male character is seen on a couple of occasions in women’s underwear and clothing. A woman working in a brothel pulls her skirt up to display a prosthetic ivory leg that conceals a double-barrel shotgun. In one scene she lures a man to feel her leg with some sexual comments. References are made to sexual violence.
Language: The script includes infrequent mild profanities along with some sexual innuendo.
Drugs/Alcohol: Characters are seen drinking hard liquor in bars and other locations.
