This is one of the funniest animated movies I have come across - Johny Depp as Rango was brilliant again... He seems to have a knack in finding good humour lately, and this one is no different... a good family film..
did not enjoy it at all....
Great family movie. Loved it and so did my grandson.
Loved it! So much fun and a great story. My son (5yrs) and I watched it several times together and we both now repeat the funniest lines to each other!!
Still laughing - hahahaha. Loved the cameo 'tall, dark [golfing] stranger'
Very slow movie. Skipped to the second chapter to see if it was any better - no such luck. Ended up not watching.
Wasted 30 mins of my life trying to sit through this movie. Hated it & gave up. Think it's suitable only for boys aged 7-9!
My 4 year old loved it ... we had to go out and buy it and its definitely one of his favourites ...
The animation in the film was excellent but the story was a bit slow in parts and not as funny as the preview indicated.
Thoroughly enjoyed this, had me engaged completely from start to finish. A great tale full of humour,drama & action.
Haven't stopped laughing. Johnnie Depp has something intangible about him , even as a con artist lizard.
Good movie for an animated film.
When Rango was screening in Melbourne, my friend told me it's more suited to older kids and adults. Now I've watched and I do agree with her assessment. It's fun but the concepts in the film can be a bit dark and scary. Still I do find the film interesting and entertaining.
Great storyline for adults , maybe bit too much for younger kids, great animation. I enjoyed it
Really quite odd film, seems like it's trying a bit too hard to be 'deep' with lotys of 'who am I?' introspection and also trying a little too hard for 'funny' one liners. I spent most of the film wondering what the point was.
My husband and I and 6 year old grandson thorothly enjoyed this movie. A good laugh.
The Kids loved this one
They watched it 6 times so it must be good
Terrible. Couldnt watch it - had to turn it off. Worst childrens animation ever.
Kids and husband loved it, great family movie.
Quirky revisioning of the old west that has a few too many characteristic hallmarks of the producer showing through that have already been seen, ad-nauseum, in previous efforts. Worth a watch, once.
liked it, but wasn't really what i expected
A good fun movie with a serious moral tale attached
We thought Rango was a good family movie. All these animals living in the desert, reminds me of a John Wayne western, modernized so children can relate.
An animated delight with some great laughs. Really enjoyed this one with the kids.
Great animation effects with an interesting plotline. Enjoyable watching for both adults and older children. Could be a little macabre and difficult to undersatand for younger children.
Rango is a very funny movie- huour more ained at adults than children I think.
All in all these 45 adults enjoyed it
This was very clever and the animation was great. Loved the postmodern references and the concept but don't expect the young kids to get much of the story line. A good one for the family with kids aged 8yrs and up.
Ok. Not my kids' favourite.
Good movie well animated ,reminds me of pale rider.
Something just wasn't right for me with this one. The animation was incredible but I found the whole movie rather unlikeable and can't quite put my finger on it.
Quite cute to watch, good story line, nice graphics and sweet characters. A little bit of adult humour occassionally thrown in.
Disappointed, I found it a bit boring. My 5yo son enjoyed it though.
great movie, my children watched it over and over
funny as. The whole family enjoyed this.
I couldn't work out who this was aimed at. Not cute enough for kids, not interesting enough for teenagers, and not funny enough for adults who may watch it with them. Excellent animation though.
very entertaining family movie, although I was getting questions about how the aardvark could still be walking with squished inner parts. Ha ha. Just a movie kids.
Boring and dragged out. Too serious for my 4 year old nephew, too kiddy for the 11 year old, and I myself lost interest quickly though I am a major fan of animated movies. Was excited for the movie to come out too, didn't live up to expectation unfortunately, especially after the great review above.
enjoyed by a 6yr old boy.
Kids loved it - watched it twice
Enjoyable family movie, funny good story
Disappointing, Found it hard to watch the whole movie...dragged on.
Not bad for a bit of a laugh.
A bit long and drawn out, worth watching once. Too serious for younger children, my 8 year old quickly lost interest.
unable to finish watching it- skipped a lot of the movie as found it very slow.
I SO didn't want to watch this, and bucked and kicked regarding even the possibility of marking it down, but I must say once you get through the creepy chameleon's eyes, it's really good, and I wouldn't mind watching it again. There's one scene that's a little weird, yet the snake in the cowboy hat is rather appealing, and the sheer luck that follows Rango around is absolutely fantastic. A life of good fortune... that's the way to go! Not for kids, though. A tad scary in parts, and they wouldn't handle some of it. For adults, not bad. A cartoon adventure that's legitimate. Nice.
This a great movie for all ages, well at least the majority of us who aren't dissuaded by top level cg. The story detail is quite original though it does have a lot of deliberate western cliches that work well. At least twice they managed in a single routine to achieve universal humor ie the whole family laughs at the same time. I have to rank this as one of my 2 favorite Depp movies. The weakest part of the movie is the start, too long, too irrelevant and the important parts are skipped over too briefly. Still it doesn't ruin a great movie.
My five year old daughter loved it. I enjoyed it as much. I didn't find it slow like other reviews but well paced with the spagetti western take off very amusing. The visuals were stunning - I'll be buying the blue ray when it comes down in price. If you like Tim Burton's films this will probably be uo your alley.
As an adult I didn't like it much but my 9 year old loved it. I thought it very slow and a bit crass, but obviously some went over my sons head. Which was a blessing.
We were highly anticipating this film having never getting to see at the cinema and the trailer had looked good. However we were somewhat disappointed. Some fantastic animation and voice overs, but the story was shallow and it was over long. My wife went to sleep during the video. Had some very funny spots and in jokes at other films if you knew them, but not enough.
Found this to be slow, The previews were better. Made the film seem a bit more lively and certainly funnier than it actually is. Great animation though.
bit slow, was under the impression it was for kids,, l dont think so, not our lot anyways
A lovely kids' movie. As a parent I enjoyed it and so did my children.
This animated feature is so well made and written, it had us from the get-go. Johhny Depp's voice, while sometimes unrecognisable, is perfect as the noble but erratic lead character. Isla Fisher as Beans is also very good. The production is first class and kids will enjoy the action on screen, while adults should get a laugh out of the very clever dialouge. Don't miss.
Good kids movie. Had a lot of hidden adult sayings in there though.
Fabulous fun for the whole family. My husband and I and our 6 year old all loved it. So many "family" movies give you dental decay by the end due to the sickly sugary storyline, this was NOT one of them. Highly recomended.
Was entertaining at times had some funny bits, was great for the kids to watch.
This wasn't as good as it looks. I don't think kids would get it much. I found it to be boring and not entertaining.
bit boring better for young kids
LOTS OF FUN
IS NUMBER ONE 1...
Strange - and not what I expected at all. Lots of cliches but pretty funny overally. Interesting !
Great film for the young at heart...... completely enthralling.
Entertaining for the whole family. Kept the kids amused for the entire movie and then again after that!
Funny, and thoughtful, I thought it was a send up of "Westerns"
It's more than that, lots of water security issues dealt with with without "preaching"
Good fun. I liked the poke at Eastwood.
not to a bad one to watch
never received this at all so why is it on my returns list?Rango and womb
Very good background development to the story, but I felt the clarity of the dialogue let the movie down. I had to rewind quite a few times to listen again, which made it less enjoyable. Lots of action, bravado and humour for all ages. Lovely detail on the animation - almost made me feel like I was sweating in the desert out there with them. I think Johnny Depp is an incredible actor, but I think the could have been a better choice for Rango's voice.
Stellar voice cast and absolutely jaw dropping animation can't disguise the fact that this film has in no way original, has little plot and even less humour that hits the funny bone. The highlight is a great cameo by Timothy Olyphant as the Spirit of the West.
I thought this movie was Clever!! but some of the characters were quite dark, I think if I had watched this as a child I would have had nightmares for weeks :)
Great movie. Different and really enjoyed it.
Whilst this movie starts off rather slowly and seems a little boring, it then becomes a jolly good ride. Johnny Depp does a great job as the boastful chamelion and the other characters really grow on you. Would recommend for adults and children alike.
Visually interesting and mildly amusing. Watchable.
this movie was designed for kids and my niece loved it,i have it on my computer and let her watch it anytime she likes,i enjoyed it myself,yes it did get a little boring but like i said it is a kids movie and a good one at that.
My husband was so bored he fell asleep. I was determined to watch the entire movie wishing it would just get better, it didn't.
Not one for the littlies......my 5 and 9 year old girls were a bit disturbed by the movie and didn't want to watch it again. (usually they watch their movies 2 or 3 times before we return!).
very tried hard comedy??. did not find amusing...missed opportunities...diluted?. humour too adult for kids. good quality animation is possible only positive. avoid.
My son enjoyed the movie and thought it was so funny
Not what I expected....the plot was a bit all over the place and some scenes looked like the writers where on acid!
too kidish for the man in the house but I didn't mind it,
My children looooooved this movie! Very cleverly made film. I loved the owls in the sombreros! they were great! Another great quirky Johnny depp film to add to my favs. 10/10
Fantastically made, wonderful story. Definately for older boys though, was a little too much for our little girl so we waited till she was sleeping and we watched it instead, everything with Johnny in it is worth watching :)
My 4 yr old wasn't very interested, probably better for older kids. My initial reaction was - what did I get this for, but, given a chance it wasn't too bad. Loved the small bits of humour throughout and the animated effects were good at times. My husband said he enjoyed this movie and would watch again.
A great family movie. Kids loved it.
We didn't know what to expect. There are so many kids/adults animated shows that are fantastic, however this is not one of them. Very disapointed.
Hmmmm... good realistic animation, but the story line was to twisted for my liking.
It was neither a kids cartoon, nor a kids cartoon with adult layers... What was it...
They decided to make something to please everyone, and they didnt please anyone. few laughs, few takes on movies, a little hint of environmental issues (control of the water)... This is a movie that is and that was, but never came out of the abys....
2 stars (for the animation)
rubbish for the first hour, but picks up a bit at the end. What were you thinking Johnny Depp?
Not very interesting and only a few laughs throughout the movie. would not recommend.
Slow odd start but five minutes in the movie picked up with lots of action and excitment. recommended viewing.
My 6 Y/O son loved this one
Unlike any animation Ive ever seen, lots of strange creatures, but kids loved it and watched it over and over and have been dressing up as cowboy lizards since lol !!
fun animated movie with great adult themes, had a laugh a minute
A really good movie, one that you can watch over and over again.
Great movie- we really enjoyed Johnny Depp as Rango and thought the animation was excellent. Recommended.
Good movie and funny as well. But you need to like the old west and cowboys.
A little darker than your average cartoon but the underlying messages were very heartening. Rango was very witty and creative and really really funny! My new favourite!
Kids enjoyed this one, but I would have liked a few more jokes in there for the adults like a lot of kids movies do these days.
AWESOME animation, truly another step upwards
Story lacking a bit of substance
Not a lot of laughs, unlike Tangled / Shrek etc
Worth viewing though
what a great refreshing movie.......loved the characters especially the cowgirl
who comes to the rescue
Best Ever Movie, kids and adults loved it.
Great fun movie for all the family. Different animation from what I have seen before. Interesting new creatures.
My kids (ages 7 and 8) gave this four stars.
Rango is an ordinary chameleon who accidentally winds up in the town of Dirt, a lawless outpost in the Wild West in desperate need of a new sheriff. What a hoot, fantastic
I was expecting much better and I didn't even have very high expectations. I actually fell asleep at one point.
I didn't have very high expectations for this movie so I wasn't too disappointed. Kids wern't fussed and I didn't really bother watching after about the first 10 minutes except to keep an eye on things (as I feel I must with PG ratings). It is supposed to be a comedy I think, but perhaps it is aimed at a slightly older audience.
Very funny! Not for little kids but my teenage kids really enjoyed it as well.
I was very disappointed with this movie. It could have been really funny and entertaining but didnt quiet get there.
The kids watched it but I dont think they got it! Not the best animated movie I have seen
Absolutely loooooved it!!!!
wasted on me, did'nt like it
If you've been waiting for a cartoon remake of "Chinatown", complete with lizards as the main characters, then this is the movie for you.
Equal measures silly and sophisticated, but you've seen it all before in a hundred westerns.
Loved it! Really different movie,and I don't know why it didn't get as much promotion when it was out in the cinemas. It's a fun movie and a great twist on old western movies. The whole family will enjoy. Worth watching more than once, Johnny Depp's voicing is amazing, you can hear the effort he put into Rango to make him stand out.
Amusing, well done animation. Children will love this.
not really sure what I expected but different in the best way with Johnny Depp! my 12yr old and I enjoyed it. I was a little 'restless' with middle of movie but overall well done. prob wouldn't watch again.
Not as good as expected, didn't feel it was really made as good as it could have been, especially for the younger ones. Expected it to be funny, but wasn't.
Loved this movie - as story within a story. Characters are excellent, very Wind-in-the-Willows look to them. It's a western - stranger rides into town and the locals look to him for help to defeat the mean overlord.. etc, but it's also a 'coming of age' story and more. I was so distracted by the amazing art work we had to watch it again. This is one to buy. It's amazing - but take note, it's not a kids movie. Just because stories are animated does not automatically make them kids movies. There animation for big kids too, you know!
not to bad a young child would find it scary
A gritty western with critters instead of cowboys. The bright and colourful cover-art doesn't represent the look of the movie at all. Most of the jokes are aimed at an adult audience. Johnny Depp is suitably wacky. I liked it but my three-year-old said "Too scary!"
as i stated previous. Anime leading the way today, and this title is no exception. One of the best (& funniest) yet
Tedius dribble even the kids got bored with it.
A little hard to understand the dialogue in places and got a little boring in the middle however the kids loved it.
As with any movie Johnny Depp is involved with it is rather strange! Thought my Grandchildren would have liked it but they just got bored with it and didn't really hold much intesest for my Husband and myself. Rather disappointing.
This movie is very funny, but moreso the second time!
The greatest western ever (I usually don't like westerns). Fantastic CGI, fun characters and a great story. Lots of laughs for the young and some for the older viewers too. Don't miss this one. Rango is a tropical lizard in the desert like a fish out of water. With his acting ability he cons the townsfoke of Dirt that he is a tough guy who can kill 7 bad guys with one bullet. With Dirt running out of water the Mayor makes Rango Sherrif.
Not a movie for the little ones as some content isnt suitable and some scenes may frighten them. The use of words like "trollop" and "tart" in my opinion arent necessary in a PG movie either, even if they were used only once. Not a bad storyline based on an old west scenario for older children and the characters are cute. Has some funny moments too. Older viewers will get a laugh out of "the spirit of the west" but you will be surprised at who voiced him!
Good story with a messge. Maybe not for little kids, but then it is rated PG.
