Rango — movie to rent today

If you haven’t seen yet Rango in the the­aters (which you prob­a­bly did) or bought the DVD, you should rent it on Red­box now. The PG-rated fea­ture Dream­works ani­ma­tion is directed by Gore Verbin­sky (Pirates Of The Caribbean 1–2-3). Johnny Depp lends his voice to our pro­tag­o­nist, a scaly gecko lizard (from the real human world) called Rango who stum­bles into a west­ern fron­tier town pop­u­lated by ani­mals like him, of course, and after a bunch of mis­ad­ven­tures, becomes the town’s (and the world’s) fun­ni­est sher­iff. He helps the town solve their mys­te­ri­ous water drought prob­lem, while encoun­ter­ing a wild cast of col­or­ful char­ac­ters as well as dis­cov­er­ing who he him­self, really is. The ani­ma­tion is fan­tas­ti­cally real­is­tic, and the movie is fun and excit­ing for all ages/
Roger Ebert (respected film critic from the Chicago Sun-Times) wrote “…Some kind of a mir­a­cle: An ani­mated com­edy for smart movie­go­ers, won­der­fully made, great to look at, wickedly satir­i­cal, and (gasp!) filmed in glo­ri­ous 2-D.“
