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.
Industrial Light & Magic's first foray into the world of animation hits all the right notes, for Rango is an endlessly fascinating recreation of the Wild West that brims with cutting-edge animation and is just as accomplished in its technical aspects as it is structurally sound in its narration. Stuffed with clever references to classic spaghetti westerns yet retaining an originality of its own, the first feature-length animation film from the pioneering VFX firm is one of the best westerns to surface in recent years.
Set in an Old West town populated by desert fauna, Rango tells the story of its titular character, an ordinary chameleon who winds up in the desert town following an unforeseen accident and in order to…
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…

Rangotown. Is that enough of a Chinatown reference? Probably not. Hey folks: this movie is a lot like Chinatown, and that probably sounds either like an insult if you think I'm saying it's derivative or like a compliment if you think I'm comparing it to royalty, but what's really cool about setting Chinatown in the Wild West is the way it brings to life the connection between the western sheriff and the film noir detective. Rango is just as much a detective looking into the mystery of the lack of water in Dirt (the name of the small town he wanders into) as J.J. Gittes is…
Included in: Western
Rango isn't really an animation to be watched by small children, it is instead for the big children like us, who love animation and films in general. I'm not saying kids won't like it, they will most likely have fun with the captivating characters and exciting ride, but we are the ones who will get the references and the more political side of the film, so those of us who are open-minded enough to enjoy a good animation will have a blast.
There was no way in the world I wasn't going to love a film that is a wonderful mix of Spaghetti Westerns and Chinatown - and yet it's a film that finds a heart of…
Its very rare to see a movie like Rango exist in a place where modern american animated films are so concerned with selling merchandise, or dumbing itself down for younger kids. Granted, recent animated films have improved a lot of these aspects in recent years. Even so, its so incredible to even think that a movie like this got greenlit....by Nickelodeon nonetheless.
Rango is essentially a straightforward western, which happens to be animated. It tells the tale of Rango, voiced by Johnny Depp, who becomes lost in the desert. He finds the town of "Dirt", and adventure ensues. As for the plot, it doesn't push many boundaries per se, but the content and style of the movie really does. Somehow,…
Johnny Depp For Ever! The randomness in this movie has a perfect combination with the story.
Una animación creativa y hermosamente realista, Personajes interesantes, mas el protagonista y los aldeanos de la tierra secas son muy divertidos verlos en pantalla.
Like Antz before it, it's a little difficult imagining Rango being a favourite amongst kids. From Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas references to Rango holding a gun to a kid's head and threatening to blow it off, it's a decidedly dark and truly odd movie. The surreal and visually gorgeous dream sequences and the cinematic action sequences point to this being one for the older kids and yes, even the adults.
It's a film filled with imaginative and well designed creatures, but it's a shame the same imagination wasn't injected into the meandering and fairly bland plot. It's not bad but it's definitely thin, especially as it's a two hour film. The tone is right, but the structure lets it…

Johnny Depp's voice performance is hilarious and amazing, and the animation is gorgeous along with the great western style. And..."THAT'S WHAT I SAID!"

The Lone Ranger mixed with Raising Arizona
I almost quit watching it in the beginning because it was so odd, but all became clear to me soon and then this movie was actually mostly entertaining. Humour was dry but it worked. I even laughed aloud in couple of scenes. Some references to other Johnny Depp movies I didn't like but some were OK. Animation was ugly on that Clint Eastwood kind of guy's face, but otherwise animation looked nice. Nothing special but entertains me enough.
Complete list. :-(
