Review:

Littered with clever wit and western spoofery, Rango is a must-see. While much of the humour flies over the heads of children, this truly is a cartoon for adults, featuring hilarious references to other westerns, and even incorporating some slapstick. Sheltered house-pet Rango finds himself in gritty desert town, Dirt, sticking out like a sore thumb. An identity crisis of sorts, Rango recreates himself as Dirt’s last hope - the sheriff that can hopefully solve their drought problem. Storyline aside, the animation is fantastic. The textures of the desert animals and the colours of the beautiful western backdrop are just perfect for this wannabe Western animation.
