Exceptional as an animated picture, Rango is actually a superb FILM! The story of a lizard trying to establish his own identity is followed through a journey of self-discovery that is seldom seen in animated form. The story is adorable, exciting and surprisingly deep. The climax of the film finds Rango at his lowest point, crossing over to the other side and coming to realize who he is...just in time to save the day in the destitute town of Dirt. Funny for kids and meaningful for adults, Rango is the surprise of the year!

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.

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.

The story could've be more perfect

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.
