Review: Not even Johnny Depp can rescue 'The Lone Ranger'
Within the memory of those still living, "The Lone Ranger" was a radio serial that broadcast 2,956 episodes over 21 years, as well as a beloved TV series that ran for an additional eight. Never in all that time was it thought necessary to have a villain who cut out human hearts and ate them, but, hey, these are different days, and even icons have to adapt or die.
