When Rango, a lost family pet, accidentally winds up in the gritty, gun-slinging town of Dirt, the less-than-courageous lizard suddenly finds he stands out. Welcomed as the last hope the town has been waiting for, new Sheriff Rango is forced to play his new role to the hilt.
what the hell
I enjoyed this the first time I saw it, back when it first came out; didn't necessarily love it though. But now Rango is definitely one of my favorite animated movies ever. It's so incredibly bizarre, as well as one of the coolest freakin' things visually (definitely check it out on Blu-ray if possible). Johnny Depp's voice performance is perfect in bringing spectacular life to the character - same goes for the entire supporting cast, actually. And, of course, I absolutely love the Fear & Loathing references.
Recent animation has suffered from relentless 3D, not to mention a tendency towards diluted story lines, under-developed characters, and overly safe humour. Too much of the wrong thing, and too little originality, has meant that it's been a long time since I've sat through an animated blockbuster and not eagerly anticipated the end. Just as I was about to give up hope on Hollywood, along comes Rango with his identity issues, his metaphysical self-awareness, and his little beady eyes, shaking up a genre that was dying a slow death.
The story follows a pet chameleon (Johnny Depp) who is stranded in the desert after being knocked out of the back of a moving car. Used to life within the confines…
Astonishingly fresh, deft, weird and left-of-center, RANGO is a self-stylized 21st Century Western set in the world of desert-dwelling animals who think they're living in the world of Sergio Leone. Elegant motion-captured performances, bold and bizarre visual elements, stylish and tongue-firmly-stuck-in-bone-dry-cheek, RANGO is a film that isn't so much for modern animation fans as it's for fans who are sick of modern animation and its lowest-common-denominator-catering blandness.
Whimsical and witty with strong direction by Gore Verbinski (who seems to have found his element post his Pirates-career), studded with great performances, odd cameos and outlandishly surreal and astonishingly intelligent post-modern gags, if you see one peyote-laced, nightmare-fuel, Johnny-Depp-playing-Hunter-S-Thompson-playing-a-reptilian-Jack-Sparrow-cowboy-hero movie in your lifetime...make sure it's this one.
Rango is a dark, dramatic comedy at its heart. I would not define it as a joyous children's movie that much is for sure. But I think it is something children would love just the same. A lot of the innuendos and deeper context is probably going to go over most kids heads. Honestly, that is okay because Rango is an easy creature to love, and that's what really matters. Adults can enjoy this film it as it teeters towards an adult audience. Children can appreciate its beautiful look and fun nature. And everyone can enjoy the warm spirit that lay beneath it's scaly exterior.
it had a unique story about reinventing yourself! Loved it!
A clever, challenging and funny tribute to the Western wrapped around a genuinely touching story of isolation and identity. Vibrant, crisp and simply cool animated visuals with an identifiable style. Soundtrack is extraordinarily fun. Great voice performances. Thumbs up all round.
I liked it more than I thought I would. The character design is aggressively ugly, but that's part of its charm.
There's a chase scene toward the middle of the film that's pretty easily the best sequence, but aside from that and Rango's rather belated acceptance of the Call (the Joseph Campbell kind, not the religious kind) it was honestly kind of bland.
Προλαβαίνετε να βάλετε ΑΝΤ1, μόλις αρχίζει. Χάνετε βέβαια ήδη το αδιανόητο intro.
Μια τεράστια ανοικτή επιστολή αγάπης στις ιστορίες απ' την Άγρια Δύση του Wayne, ακόμα περισσότερο ίσως σε αυτή του Leone. Την προσυπογράφω.
Wow δε μ' αρέσει καθόλου η μεταγλώττιση ως τώρα.
Gore Verbinski's previous directorial work was the first three "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, however he started off in special effects. Perhaps it's not entirely surprising then that he had now chosen to make a computer generated cartoon. The level of detail in the animation is far greater than I had expected from early promotions.
The film is absolutely visually stunning. I mean look at the detail on this.
So the film begins by introducing us to Rango, a chameleon who appears to be familiar with a range of films. In this opening scene he is trying to arrange his own film production with a bunch of inanimate objects. While this seems random when you first see it, don't worry,…
Crunchy, creamy, cookie, candy, cupcake...
I don't really know why but this movies is annoying to me. I know most of people watched and thought: wow that's a good movie.But I didn't.
I really tried. But I failed.
I kind of hate this movie.
I tried a second time and I had that same feeling, again...that's one of those movie that I honest don't get it why people like it so much ://
Klasika!!! Išskirtinė animacija!

If the plot sounds similar to Chinatown, that’s because it is. But the plot is secondary here, and that’s why Rango is different.
Prior to Rango, the most notable computer-animated release from Nickelodeon Movies is perhaps 2001’s Oscar-nominated (check if you don’t believe me), Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. After 2004’s commercially efficient yet critically panned Barnyard, Nickelodeon Movies’ computed-animated team seemingly went back to the drawing board. Released after True Grit (2010), Cowboys & Aliens (2010) and the massively popular video game Red Dead Redemption (2010) but before Tarantino’s upcoming Django Unchained, Rango was released amongst a mini revival for the western.
It’s almost unavoidable to talk about computer-generated films without mentioning Pixar, favourites of audiences and…
