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.

Depp isn't as annoying in this as he has been elsewhere.

Packed with in-jokes, great characters and an offbeat anti-hero, Rango is the perfect shake-up the animated genre needed.

At long last, a spaghetti Western for the kiddie set -- and one that doesn't sell older viewers short.

Set in a surreally off-kilter version of the Wild West populated entirely by animals, computer-animated Western Rango is both a witty spoof and loving homage to the genre.

Kudos to the director for making it as oddball as it could get away with.

Fans of Johnny Depp will enjoy his voice work as the nutty Rango; he is obviously having a good time. Ned Beatty's voice is easily recognizable as the main villain, giving him a one-two punch after working as the nasty Lotso in Toy Story 3...

... this southwestern goof is really for really big kids with a love of movies, a sense of whimsy and a soft spot for the hideously gorgeous creatures of the desert.

It's one of those movies that will reveal more and more to youngsters as they rewatch it in years to come... and that's the best kind of film.

For good or for bad, this is not your run-of-the-mill animated feature.

Rango is Disney by way of Hunter S. Thompson, Chinatown recast with a lizard, Blazing Saddles with existential angst, Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns romanticallyspoofed. Rango is both weird and wonderful.

Inevitably, as seems to be the law with any modern animation, there's an intertextual dimension to the proceedings.
