THE LONE RANGER is a Western, following the adventures of the Lone Ranger and his friend Tonto.

Violence

There are numerous battle scenes, during which characters fight with pistols, rifles, knives and tomahawks. The film includes a scene in which a villainous character takes out a knife, places it to a character's stomach and stabs him with it. Subsequently it is implied that the villain eats the victim's heart. Elsewhere in the film a character has his throat cut by a villain, but the figures are shown only in silhouette. One scene features a character repeatedly hitting another in the face, but this is in reaction to cruel taunts and the attacker swiftly realises that his actions are morally wrong.

Injury detail

Some scenes contain the fleeting sight of blood when characters are injured or killed. When bladed weapons are used, no on screen blood is shown at the moment of injury, with only aftermath shots including sight of bloody clothing or, in one or two moments, a little spitting of blood.

The film also contains some mild sex references, such as when a character looks through pictures of scantily clad women on playing cards lifted from a dead man's coat Another scene takes place in a brothel but no nudity or sexual activity is depicted. There is some mild bad language, including uses of 'damn' and 'hell', along with a single use of the word 'harlot'.
