    No goggles, no gloom. And no competition for the coolest, orneriest, funniest, best-looking movie of early 2011.

    It is, all in all, off its rocker. But it's gorgeous.

    Rango, which may take place entirely within its hero's head - that kind of ambiguity worked in "Inception" and "Black Swan," so why not here? - is about the appetite for myths and stories, whether or not they make sense. It is about the worlds we dream inside our fishbowls, helped by the weird reflections on the walls.

  • Betsy Sharkey

    Verbinski's greatest triumph is that he allowed the animation to free rather that confine him. There is indeed a new sheriff in town, with Rango destined to become a classic.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Rango is 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.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Rango is wild, woolly and weird, and the first movie of 2011 that I must see again.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The best of Rango is a lot like the best of the first "Pirates" movie – crazily funny and rambunctious.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    An animated western that's effortlessly the most exhilarating flight of computer-drawn fancy since "Ratatouille."

    NPR Full Review
  • Most exceptional is the visual style, which makes even the best animated 3D look like a poor cousin.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Pam Grady

    Wonderfully animated, witty and wildly imaginative.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    Johnny Depp isn't the sort of star to blend in, so it's saying something that his turn as the world's most conspicuous chameleon in Rango is so full-bodied, you forget the actor and focus on the character.

  • James Berardinelli

    Rango is the poster child for those who are anti-3-D, and a great reminder that genuine creativity doesn't need a gimmicky crutch to appeal to audiences.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Rango is iconic like a spaghetti Western, smart like a '70s conspiracy thriller and lively like a Coen brothers comedy.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    The funny and powerfully weird Rango is probably the closest I've seen a big-budget, computer-animated feature get to the comic vibe of my favorite Chuck Jones cartoons -- specifically, the Bugs/Porky Western spoof "Drip-Along Daffy."

  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    The latest collaboration between Verbinski ("Pirates of the Caribbean") and Johnny Depp is sharp-edged, surreal, and often astonishing in its giddy creativity. What it is not, however, is a family film.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    I've made a good case for seeing Rango, and why not; an eye feast is still a feast in this lean multiplex season. Be advised, though, of the film's peculiar deficits. The narrative isn't really dramatic, despite several send-up face-offs. It's more like a succession of picturesque notions that might have flowed from DreamWorks or Pixar while their story departments were out to lunch.

    It's hyperactive, often hilarious and ultimately exhausting. Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    It's refreshing to see an animated movie that doesn't look as though the idea for the Happy Meal came first.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    It is Depp, however, who really nails this thing by simply blending in with all the other voice talent and characters and not reverting to the oversized Captain Jack Sparrow swagger. Rango becomes the hero of his own story, and for this he needs no stinkin' badge.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    By the end I was getting a bit antsy from the rambling script and direction.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Though its level of execution is consistently high, Rango is a non-pandering comedy that takes its message of western individualism seriously: It's here for you and your children to enjoy – or not – as you please.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Depp possesses one of the finest speaking voices in the business - a nimble, mellifluous instrument that can go from sexy growl to fey warble in no seconds flat.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    To paraphrase something Quentin Tarantino once said about Sergio Corbucci, Verbinski loves the uglies. They return the favor by looking almost beautiful.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Andrea Gronvall

    This features the usual slapstick, double entendres, and riffs on classic films, but what elevates it above a cheeky romp is the skilled CGI work, not only the wealth of tactile detail lavished on the parched townsfolk but also the painterly, sand-swept vistas they call home.

  • Tasha Robinson

    Ignoring the weak storyline entirely, Rango is a joyously weird experience.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    The biggest strike against Rango, though - for both the movie and the hero - is that the lizard is so damn ugly.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The result is an odd, occasionally engaging but often cacophonous mishmash.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Rango is like nothing you've ever seen.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Rango is best enjoyed by those over 10 who have an idea of what "existential" means and can appreciate a surreal mashup of "Chinatown," "Gladiator," "High Noon," and "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly."

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    You can feel the actors tossing energy, one-liners, and limbs off each other with gusto.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Kim Newman

    A certain percentage of the audience will instantly sieze on this as their favorite movie of all time, and a small, but not insignificant demographic will have nightmares. Verbinski and Depp probably like it that way.

    Empire Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Fitfully amusing or not, the whole demented enterprise of Rango comes into question when you're that tone-deaf about what's appropriate for children.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    For all its genre-bending cleverness and technical dexterity, Rango's overstuffed plot fails to consistently blend its brainy pretensions with its chase-and-slapstick family-film obligations. Like Dirt's H2O supply, laughs are scarce.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    Several quick-witted touches-such as a hilarious nod to Depp's role in "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas"-can't make up for Gore Verbinski's leaden direction of this digitally animated feature.

    It is, for what it is, a work of considerable care and craft. And it's completely soulless.
