Part celebration of the spaghetti western with a stunning resolutely 2:D visual style, is geared primarily for adults and is quirky in all the right ways.

A third act cameo sets a high water mark of awesome, especially for fans of Deadwood.

If ever there was an animated film made for film critics, Rango is it.

The kind of computer animation that lingers so exquisitely on the little things. The romance is sweetly underplayed and Coen-like moments of hyper-erudition and eccentric, grizzled characters make for a rollicking escapade.

Brilliantly bonkers, this animated Western weirdo should scare little kids while dazzling adults with its inspired approach to demented homage.

Inventive visuals and lively voice cast lift this finely animated film above the fray. So it's a shame that the story feels both random and predictable.

Any serious, dark-minded child who's up on High Noon, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Chinatown, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and the writings of Carlos Castaneda will really find their precociousness rewarded.

Going in, I was expecting much more standard children's fare, not an existential undertaking with shout-outs to everything from Chinatown to Don Quixote.

Una película sumamente entretenida, y especialmente disfrutable por un público adulto y cinéfilo, que es todo un homenaje al universo del spaghetti western que inmortalizaran Sergio Leone (director), Clint Eastwood (actor) y Ennio Morricone (compositor).

It would be unfair, and inaccurate, to call Rango a one-joke movie. There may be two or three; I didn't count. The first laugh comes with the appearance of a...

"Rango" has everything going for it -- strong characters, complex plotting, and a knowledge of the genre it parodies without excluding newcomers to it. It's smart without being alienating and exciting without being mindless.
