Too cluttered, confusing, and convoluted.

The weirdness of the film is fascinating, but there's just so damn much of it.
January 15, 2013
Amusing in small doses, marketed to kids and not really FOR kids. An undeserving Oscar winner.

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.

Unfocused and absolutely scattered...

Fans of Johnny Depp will enjoy his voice work as the nutty Rango; he is obviously having a good time. Ned Beatty's voice is easily recognizable as the main villain, giving him a one-two punch after working as the nasty Lotso in Toy Story 3...

For good or for bad, this is not your run-of-the-mill animated feature.

See Gnomeo & Juliet instead.

These strange looking characters are hard to love. They didn't generate the excitement and enthusiasm that I was hoping for.

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...

A possible cult hit, it's too self-indulgent to find a mass audience.
March 3, 2011
For a movie about finding one's identity, Rango spends an awful lot of time searching for one of its own.
March 3, 2011
Its strong suit is visual panache. It's too bad that consistent comedy and emotional resonance get lost amid the dust and cacti.
March 3, 2011
Consistently plays like an adult movie in uncomfortably fitting family-friendly clothes.

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.
