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.
it had a unique story about reinventing yourself! Loved it!
Verbinski's highly creative 3D reimagining of the western genre is a visual feast to behold, full with twists, action, comedy, dangerous characters and almost all the cherished trademarks that you would have liked to see in the genre. Out of the several 3D animated films that have received high acclaim and appraisal, this one lived up to its own hype more accurately.
Rango's influences are primarily spaghetti. It is a positive aspect that it didn't try to compile the different western styles that can be found between the 30s and the 70s, because it gave the characters, the plot and the style a more polished and focused direction. Even if using Timothy Olyphant to portray Clint Eastwood's "Man with No Name" is a rather insulting thing to do, this is creativity not at its finest form, but definitely visionary and thoroughly refreshing (with hidden gags that only Spanish speakers may get, heh).
Joder, que si hay vida más allá de Pixar... Verbinski, no nos abandones nunca.
Perhaps Depp should just do voice-work for the rest of his career. Delightfully off-kilter.
Surprisingly not in 3D.
Aconsegueix convertir-se en una de les millors pelis d'animació i de l'oest dels últims temps. Un festival de referències al spaghetti western.
It becomes one of the best animated and western movies of the last years. A feast of references to the spaghetti western.
Apart from a stellar cast and witty dialog and an interesting plot, this movie's CGI is STUNNING. I could watch these characters emote all day long. Seriously. It's gorgeous. I might just watch it again right now so that I can lose myself in the way Spoons' facial hair ripples when he speaks. Ha, I WISH I was joking!
¡¡Sorpresón el que me he llevado con Rango!! Todo un western animado pensado para el disfrute de los mayores, con referencias al género, tiroteos, duelos, sus puntos bizarros (es una peli de dibus y hay que aprovecharlo), una muy buena BSO y un nivel técnico brutal.
Quizá la parte central baja un poco, pero la última media hora es un espectáculo.
Visualmente perfecta. Por un lado posee una trama simple y su duración es excesiva (quizás 25 minutos menos bastarían), pero por otro posee un guión realmente original y una plena dosis de humor inteligente. Idónea para pasar un rato divertido.
Un poco extensa quizás, pero entretenida. Aunque no me hice muy amiga del prota XDDD
