Rango - Images, reviews ( animated film Release Date: Mar 4, 2011 )

I love this film! The animation is stunning, the voice work was excellent, especially Johnny Depp, who has his best role since POTC, and Bill Nighy, who's insanely perfect as the bad guy snake who has a bad ass machine gun for a tail, the humor is good, the film references are hilarious, and the score is brilliant! But the best thing about this movie is that its so different. Instead of being a run of the mill animated movie, its so quirky and weird. This movie is destined to be a cult midnight hit. I actually recommend it to younger kids, around 6 years and younger. There's some scary parts, some cussing, and a lot of adult jokes. But overall, Rango is a good movie that's one of my favorite animated movies in years.
