Critic Consensus: Rango is a smart, giddily creative burst of beautifully animated entertainment, and Johnny Depp gives a colorful vocal performance as a household pet in an unfamiliar world.

News & Interviews for Rango
Critic Reviews for Rango
The weirdness of the film is fascinating, but there's just so damn much of it.
Delivers the western genre goods along with generous laughs and some impressive animation--and some brazenly warped sensibilities.
Amusing in small doses, marketed to kids and not really FOR kids. An undeserving Oscar winner.
Meditations on identity make Rango unique, and somewhat special, in the current animated film landscape.
If the writers had dared to step a little outside the borders of the western formula or if they'd even just shaken up the old formula a bit, this really could have been something special, but sadly, it just ends up being pretty standard.
Audience Reviews for Rango
Great fun amazing animation especially on blu ray. Loved the shout out to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas early on. A fun strange trip of a movie that had me just gleefully going along. Good times.
George Lucas' company ILM proves to be a match for Pixar with their first animation, a dazzling fun ride that is also an entertaining homage to Westerns and the Italian spaghetti subgenre, deliciously subverting the figure of the anti-hero in a story with many welcome references.
I wasn't expecting Rango to be any good when I first saw the trailer a while back. It looked to me like your typically smug production line animated film that was soon to be forgotten in everyones minds. I was wrong. Rango is a terrifically clever film that will entertain both children and parents alike. The voice over performances are all around great. Johnny Depp shows great enthusiasm for the titular role and it also makes references to Johnny Depp's previous enigmatic dream like picture "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas". For me that reference was a hilarious in-joke. Like Fear And Loathing Rango is visually creative, eye popping and surrealist and mysterious with just enough substance addressing environmental issues to balance itself out with the bright colours and animated environments. There were two sex references in it that may put some off, but I think this is slightly more of an adult film than a children's slapstick comedy. I loved it much more than I thought I would, and I think it was the biggest surprise of 2011.
