Winner of an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, Rango is an underrated western gem from the brilliant director Gore Verbinski. Rango follows the titular hero, a pet chameleon and wannabe actor, who through a series of unfortunate mishaps ends up in the wild west desert town of Dirt. Rango will have to take on his greatest role yet as he becomes the new sheriff of the town and must uncover an insidious plot revolving around missing water, fend off an evil rattlesnake outlaw, and come to terms with his own identity rather than blending in to his surroundings. My favorite part about this film is the subtle humor strewn throughout the story that will often go over the heads of younger viewers. With each viewing, I pick up a new detail or line that I didn't notice before, which makes it a great one to watch on repeat. I also like that this really is an animated film for adults, an audience that often gets overlooked when it comes to non live action fare. Also, this goes without saying, but the animation is stunning and a visual feast for the eyes.

Oscar winner for Best Animated Feature in 2011. The animation is truly astonishing. Wow! The story is fun and aimed at grown-ups, not kids. Kids can watch it but some of the material will go over their heads. Lots of laughs and goofy weirdness. Depp's chameleon character Rango is great fun.

Delightful! Really for adults as kids are not going to pick up on the clever vocabulary or humor (see a homage to Hunter S. Thompson in the beginning scenes). The story keeps you on your toes and the actors were cast perfectly as voice characters. Amazing animation! Colorful townspeople detailed in various desert animal and reptile species. LOVED IT!!!!!

While I enjoyed this movie a lot, I have to agree, it's probably not the best movie to take your 8-year old to .

This movie was ok. I wish I would have screened it before my young children watched it. Some of the humor was quite crude.
