Excerpt: Rango...a movie with Johnny Depp is usually not a normal movie, and this stays true. The story of Rango is ok, It has it's moments of exhilarating fun and then some that feel a little long in the tooth. The picture quality is excellent.
Excerpt: Quirky, intelligent, wacky -- this mash-up smorgasbord of an animated film is outstanding. This is a captivating, visually rich, and imaginative film. The storyline summations in the main review are on the mark.

Excerpt: Absolutely must own on blu ray. Probable the best video presentation ive seen so far in cgi-animation. The amount of detail is stupendous, almost life-like. It doesnt hurt that i also like the movie so much. Paramount continues to impress me with their recent releases. Audio is strong as well.

Excerpt: I saw it twice in the theater, but liked it even better on BD. It's got loads of great characters! I have seen it 5 times now, and this time I really GOT IT! Love this film! It's totally unique! PQ: The BD looks even better than what I saw in the theater!
Summary: A pet chameleon (Johnny Depp) accidentally falls of an owners car. The town mayor (Ned Beatty) appoints Rango as the new sheriff in town while Rattlesnake Jake (Bill Nighy) becomes a threat. Visually it was gorgeous and life-like, humor and with regard to the plot, falls short.
Summary: The only animated film made in 2011 that I had any real interest in seeing. Despite the PG rating, it almost seems like it was made for an older crowd - plenty of innuendo and random references that only adults would get. Still, I thought it was pretty fun - not perfect, but worth time to watch.
