“Rango” Movie Review

I was sooooo looking forward to “Rango” (as you can tell from the trailer blog entry a few posts down).

But, once I was there, watching it, I could not wait to leave.

Can you say: BORING?  Yikes….

After falling from his owners car, lizard Depp, moseys into “Dirt” (a small town inhabited by other varmints).  Dirt is suffering through a drought.   Depp becomes their hero by talking tough and accidently killing the feared hawk.  As Sheriff, the lizard takes his job very seriously and starts a very long, very boring, quest to find the water.

With a (very) few laughs, and some (somewhat) cool references to movies like Star Wars, Pirates, and High Noon (not to mention homage to Clint Eastwood), “Rango” is the worst movie I have seen this year.

I’m also not sure if the violence is for younger kids.  It seems to not know what audience it wants.


Drive Safe!  Never forget.

More family movies….

  1. Inventive visuals and lively voice cast lift this finely animated film above the fray. So it’s a shame that the story feels both random and predictable. Good review, check out mine when you can please!

  2. This was one of worst movies i have ever seen, even Johny Depp not saving it and i loved Depp !

    One of worst animation movie i have seen (Not CGI it was outstanding) but movie was boring, characters creepy and other things was so so bad !

    Even Shark Bait 2006 was better than this i got it for cheap for little bro and i tough ouch its bad but that movie actually had some fun parts and character envoled into that one.


  3. My wife wanted to see this movie and I reluctantly went along–I should have trusted my instinct and stayed home. Granted the animation was first rate–but it wasn’t enough to save a poorly written boring movie that was complete waste of my time and money. I would have walked out and I feel like demanding my money back from the people who produced this abomination. I will never ever trust any reviewer who gave this movie a good review. I’ve read the reviews and yes, I understand what the writers were trying to do but it just wasn’t funny at all and this movie has earned a spot on the my worst movie list. I will tell everyone I know to avoid this movie at all costs (I would not even recommend renting it on netflix–its such a bad movie.
