Rango is the story of a chameleon (Johnny Depp) who dreams of being a movie star, happy in his cage acting out scenes with his toys, until one day he finds himself lost in the Wild West desert town of Dirt.

Stumbling into the role of town sheriff, Rango, must find and apprehend the outlaws who are stealing all the town’s water.

The movie is funny, witty and entertaining enough to keep adults interested. Rango currently leads my picks to win the Oscar for “Animated Feature Film.”

RECOMMENDATION

Rango is very entertaining. As an adult, it wasn’t “too cartoony” for me, which is always a selling point for an animated film.

Rango has a 7.4/10 rating on IMDB, is 88% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and has a 75/100 Metascore.
