a stunning desert landscape and a praiseworthy, effervescent score by zimmer are just some of the film's skills. depp's identifiable mumbling yet expressive voice work is a jurisdiction in itself. the plot is deceptively straightforward, and somewhat wholesome. 'rango' manages to combine the western and animation genres to captivating, aberrant effect.

no man can walk out of his own story..


Contrary to other animated feature that goes deep in depicting fine detailed peculiar world that differentiates from the "human" world, the makers in here decided to instead resonate it as much as possible which is where it stands alone. Gore Verbinski's vision is projected clean and crystal clear that easily connects and communicates with the audience through excellent execution skills. Johnny Depp is perfectly fit for the role; as it resembles too much with Jack Sparrow and is supported with a great cast like Isla Fischer and Bill Nighty. Rango is a typical western feature that is seasoned by some new spices and flows with genuine emotion which keeps it upbeat despite of its predictable script and seen-this-seen-that conflicts.

Its...Very...Weird, But in a good way, Depp did a fantastic job as Rango, along with Bill Nighy as the snake, and Ned Beatty as the mayor, Though my only problem is that, well one its very weird and by weird i mean, weird like its never mentioned again, like the tunnel in willy wonka, And there is al ot of stuff that could be skipped over and it wouldnt have made a difference on the plot, Half the animals i couldn't tell what they were. But the movie was just decent overall, its at least worth seeing once but its a movie that you have to make your mind up for yourself, the weirdest part however is when Clint Eastwood (known as the spirit of the west) Appears in a vision or something to rango. Its a very strange movie and is definetly not for kids, There are several sexual references, And 9 uses of hell and one point the snake says "Sign the Damn Paper!!!!" But it pays homage to some of the old western movies with a funny little reference to "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" Which is also funny knowing how Depp was also in that movie. All in all a fairly decent movie with some good action, plot, and some good comedy 4.5/5 *

This film manages to be above average while excelling at nothing in particular, which at the least makes it entertaining and possibly even worth a rewatch from time to time.

Excellent well written movie. Brilliant CGI

Good movie, but there's a fair bit of political correctness throughout the movie and sadly killed what should have been a very entertaining movie.

If you're someone who happens to be Conservative, I'd avoid this movie. But even then, if you can look past the political stuff... it's a good movie.

While it certainly has that familiar creepiness of Johnny Depp and Gore Verbinski, Rango is an exciting, hilarious, insanely detailed and classic animated western.

If the Coen Bros made an animated-existential-comedy-western-family film (which, let's be honest, is the only kind of family film they would make), it would certainly be very similar to this. Not to simply write off Verbinski; his eye for style and comedic timing are dry and wonderful. The design is easily some of the coolest and most unique in the CGI-animation era. And before Depp gave up acting for scarf collecting, he delivered even his vocal performances with great care.

i think rango is a amazing movie but its not a kids movie because rango falls in love with a naked plastic barbie doll body rango drinks alcohol out of a cactus characters smoke and its very vilonte a guy has a arrow
stuck in his eye and theres lots of guns and a snake tries to kill and shoot rango its still a good movie but its not a kids movie despite being under the Nickelodeon logo

Much better than I expected, Full of some great Entertaining scenes and some funny laughs to be had too, Some if not most of the comedy felt like it would go over the target audiences head as allot of jokes only adults would understand fully but it does have its slapstick moments that the kids will love, The animation was good, I can't comment on the 3D as I watched the 2D version, With a great voice cast this film can be enjoyed by all the family.

This movie in my opinion is extremely overrated the slow western dessert feel makes the film really boring and OH NO the liar plot is Back.

One of the best animated movies ever made, the trailer shows so little and I'd recommend watching it as it is absolutely outstanding. The animation work to the character development to the soundtrack are perfect in every way. Everything a animated movie should be.

Not my favorite movie I was bored watching this I thought the plot to the movie was not good

Unusuallly dense and gritty visuals, particularly for a mainstream animated movie, are this movie's strongest point. Voice performances are pretty good, albeit Johnny Depp plays the protagonist as a more deluded and neurotic cousin of his Captain Jack Sparrow. Narrative, which is primarily a Western pastiche with liberal helpings of Chinatown on the side, could be more rewarding though. The target audience actually appears to be film-literate adults, while the kid audience is not that well served.

(4.5 out of 6 stars)
When there is literally nothing to see here when we must adapt to new surroundings instantly when we dont see somethings coming. When we see many threats to hide, blend in, go unnoticed, establish our ground, find solitude, find nourishments, and seek help to survive. When we see others whom dont see such parts as a threat make due with what they have when they been in such parts for quite too long. When there are greater threats to fear to know where everything living goes and where everything dead remains that we see why some parts are inhabitable the way they are. When what we see is the lowest and smallest life forms existing in such harsh parts when there us plenty to live on and we see death too often out here. When it's a matter of perspective in how we see things on top and on the bottom to see who is getting by and barely living. When everything we see gets less when making more is harder to come by with so little. When we see that with little we have we make due that we find all sort of strange ways of living and seeing things. When we see a life source is power when everybody who sees it wants it and follows it. When we see in such parts where there us nothing, problems arise when everyone wants some control of thir life to do it wrong, do others wrong, and turn a wrong direction when we see life is getting less and less to live on. When we see what everyone depends on to see who they follow and abide when a life source makes us do things whether we want to or not to survive. When we see a life source is what makes everyone fubction, stay and become civil that we remain peaceful knowing it is there. When we see old threats that go make way for new threats. When what we are slow in not seeing, we could loose it all within an instant when threats try to sneak right pasted us underneath our foot and take from us what is ours. When we see we are all in this together to put a stop to what we can't see threats us. When what we see is ours to control, we have say to what we see fit for ourselves. When we see in such parts the toughest survive to see the toughest thing to survive is our threats that we don't see we can defeat when we are bottom of the food chain. When we see we are not fit when all we are is an actor and liar to see that we get what we want to escape to a paradise life but we see we are far from that. When we see that life on the brink we live on enough when we are built this way when life was once this way in which we evolved away from. When we see what little we can live on we don't see what unearths deep within that guides us to see our superficial ways and see it in other people's ways. When we see there is another side to life others dont see and refuse to share that we see we must take a stand in what we see unfair. When we see what we must do when others care less about others when they got more to gain that counts. When some solutions we see we can change when we see there is enough for all to share when life is on the balance.

An enjoyable movie for anybody with its clever dialogue, artistic style, homage to classic westerns, and the funny and likable title character.
