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.

It doesn't know what kind of a film it is.
March 6, 2011
These strange looking characters are hard to love. They didn't generate the excitement and enthusiasm that I was hoping for.

It coasts on strangeness only so long before the novelty wears off.

If ever there was an animated film made for film critics, Rango is it.
January 15, 2013
Amusing in small doses, marketed to kids and not really FOR kids. An undeserving Oscar winner.

Rango never shuts up, but he never has anything funny or touching or clever to say.
March 1, 2011
A rollicking, surreal, and existential kids' Western that worships at the altars of Sergio Leone, Hunter S. Thompson, and Chinatown, Rango drowns under the weight of discordant objectives and influences.
March 3, 2011
Doesn't build to anything substantial, instead dragging along interminably while its sense of humor succumbs to heat exhaustion...a gorgeous picture, but its soullessness wears down the viewing experience.

For a movie about finding one's identity, Rango spends an awful lot of time searching for one of its own.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
March 3, 2011
Consistently plays like an adult movie in uncomfortably fitting family-friendly clothes.

Its strong suit is visual panache. It's too bad that consistent comedy and emotional resonance get lost amid the dust and cacti.

Unfocused and absolutely scattered...

Well, visually Rango looks excellent. Then characters start talking.

For good or for bad, this is not your run-of-the-mill animated feature.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Just when you thought you'd seen everything, here comes Chinatown, the animated version.

This is one of those movies where the grandiose vision is there, but it never gels.

...viewers will eventually find themselves growing tired of the movie's meandering structure and unusually deliberate pace...
May 3, 2015
The weirdness of the film is fascinating, but there's just so damn much of it.
March 8, 2011
This one is for Johnny Depp devotees only. The animation is good but the overall effect of the movie is dull.
