Rango Review.

Today I will be reviewing Rango. I honestly did not want to see this movie when it came out. I thought it was a kiddy movie and it didn't look that appealing to me. However I went over to my friend's house and they decided to play this movie. I must say I was impressed.
Summary: Rango is about this run of the mill chameleon who accidentally ends up in this little town named Dirt; who is in direr need of a sheriff.

Cast: Johnny Depp, Timothy Olyphant,

My Thoughts: This movie is beautiful, ascetically it is great. The sand, the sun, the details on many of the characters were done just awesomely. Very realistically. As for the content of the movie, I must say that it surprised me on how good it ended up being. My standards were really low on this movie but it met them and went a bit above. The humor was very well done the story telling was good the music and cinematography was very well done. It really gave it a classical western feel. One of my grips was that the movie was a bit slow. Too much dialogue for kids I say.  
The acting was great. I honestly didn't think that it was Johnny Depp voicing Rango. Johnny Depp really did a great job bringing this character to life. However, my personal favorite character in this movie was Rattlesnake Jake. Very good movie, done very well. Definitely a rental.

Reiteration: 
Pros: Visually well done, great acting, good humor, good action.
Cons: Might drag on a bit.
Verdict: Rental.

  7. Rental, or a Torrent... ;)

    I've never seen Rango, but if it feels like a Western, as opposed to some kiddy movie, I am far more inclined to see it at some point.
