The Lone Ranger Is Rather Long (And Features Moderate Violence And Injury Detail)

loneranger1

While the MPAA are in the habit of awarding ratings to films that haven’t been fully locked, I don’t believe the BBFC do the same thing. As a result, I think we can take it that The Lone Ranger has now been completely completed, with every last bit of silver given its final polish.

According to the film’s listing on the BBFC site, the film has received a 12A certificate, with no cuts, and will feature:

 moderate violence and injury detail

Bullet hole? Splintered bone poking out of a broken leg? A faint splash of purple around a moderate sprain? What constitutes “inappropriate for eleven year olds unless acompannied by their parent or guardian” these days?

The most interesting detail given by the BBFC, I think, is the running time, which clocks in at a whopping 149 minutes and 21 seconds. That’s 39 seconds shy of two and half hours – almost certainly including a post-credits something or other to dissuade you from legging it during the closing crawl.

Okay, 149 and change isn’t as terrifying as the frankly criminal 165-minute runtime of the third Pirates of the Caribbean film, but it’s still a suspicious score for what appears to be a bowl of high summer trifle.

The Lone Ranger will be released across the UK on August 9th with its US bow set for July 3rd.
