Delivers the western genre goods along with generous laughs and some impressive animation--and some brazenly warped sensibilities.

Meditations on identity make Rango unique, and somewhat special, in the current animated film landscape.

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.

... 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.

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.

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.

Rango is as gloriously cinematic as it is witty and ironic.
