They all were entertaining and made the movie very enjoyable.

These films always have lame, action-focused plots that feel repetitive in the extreme, and are chock-full of in-jokes and references for their parents taking the kids along.

My eight year old loved the first half-hour, then got really bored and went to play outside.

But Verbinski's greatest accomplishment is in creating a fascinating world intricately designed with so much rich detail.

There are no problems with the film's pacing, though the final third becomes way too predictable and may cause a fair share of viewers to look at their watches.

The movie joins other films like "Nightmare Before Christmas" and more recently "Fantastic Mr. Fox" as a film that is great for kids and can be even more entertaining for adults.

But she was very disappointed about this movie and she said it was boring by the way she not from Europe !!!

Boring.

Complete waste of time and money.

Overall, Rango is a beautiful and exciting western adventure that you shouldn't miss!

The entire time the movie was playing, kids were talking, barely laughing, and many were obviously bored.

And of course -and this is predictable as well- the role Johnny Depp plays is one off a kind and makes the movie!

My only criticism of what is otherwise a very entertaining, gleefully wacky and visually outstanding animation is a lack of that undefinable factor "heart", something which I feel is that niggling X factor which Pixar consistently hits and its competitors don't.

Rango is just worth watching once.

Overall, it's beautiful, but it moves along too slow.

This could possibly be one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

The gunslinger, bar scene is suspenseful and masterfully "lit".

Surprisingly the action sequences are very entertaining, which did to some extent make up for some of the lack of comedy.

On the plus side, there are some stunning shots of the sky, along with a few adventurous scenes with lots of devilish characters.

Yet it had it's chuckles as it meandered along it formulaic way to it's predictable conclusion.

Very slow start, could have done w/o the opening 20-30min.

There was a good cinematography, but the plot was predictable and stretched.

The creative energies that were obviously poured into the film really pay off, Rango is funny, polished, and vastly entertaining.

It was a surprising blend of fresh and different comedy in unexpected surroundings, capped off by a superlative voice job by Depp and quality work from a cavalcade of stars including Isla Fisher, Bill Nighy, Alfred Molina, Ray Winstone and even Timothy Olyphant pulling off a very worthy Clint Eastwood impression.

The computer animation was stunning, and it was nice to hear Johnny Depp going back to something oddly familiar.

Proving that 3D is a ridiculous and pointless piece of trash (unless used as a gimmick), when Rattlesnake Jake slithers on screen, it feels like he coming straight for you.

Super entertaining.

Like someone wrote earlier: "DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS SHOW!

I went to see this movie under extreme protest and it was OK - I didn't like the type of animation used, nor the western theme, but it had an OK story and even though it was pretty formulaic I can certainly see it appealing to a certain type of audience.

*insert slow clap for ILM folks*Last night my wife and I had the pleasure of checking out an early screening of Rango here in the twin cities.

The animation is excellent in this film, but frankly it's pretty dull.

I even fell asleep it was so slow and dry.

Though at times it's a bit predictable I liked the characters and how each of them plays their decent part in it.

The only thing I found entertaining about it was the Mariachi band of Owls and how the characters looked and stayed in tune: spitting, revolting, and walking like cowboys.

Highly impressive animated feature which is tame enough for the youngsters and surprisingly entertaining and thought-provoking for adults.

It delivers a painfully hilarious script backed by very impressive voice acting and Gore Verbinski's direction of the film gives it a cartoony and incredibly entertaining flare.

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS SHOW !

It's entertaining, fresh, cool.

Yes, it's uneven but there's still a lot to like about Rango and at its best, it's quirky and entertaining, at worst, it's predictable and a too long.

The spirit of the late, great Sergio Leone runs through this wonderfully entertaining animated spaghetti-style western.

The amazing animation designs and the sound effects make it rousing and make it a personal favorite of mine.

*insert slow clap for ILM folks*Last night my wife and I had the pleasure of checking out an early screening of Rango here in the twin cities.

Time passes, you fight your boredom, Good Hero fights his personal problems, still no fun.

The story structure in Rango is not only common but is also deceivable, clichéd and pointless since it adds no gram of originality.

Rango (Johnny Depp) is starving artist chameleon, always performing for an audience of one (himself) in his safe, yet boring, fish tank.

My favorite part from the movie, was the riveting chase through the dessert canyons, it's a truly epic scene!

They wont get the subject matter a lot of the time and will get bored half an hour into it and start fiddling around with whatever else they can find around their chairs.

at just over an hour and a half, at times it felt it was a little too slow paced.

And that is what we have here, a cartoon made to amuse adults, made funny for adults, and enjoyable by adults.

I honestly cannot fault this movie it was hugely entertaining and my kids loved it and although it is directed towards the young ones there's plenty here to engage the more cerebral of you......

I did, however, leave the theater really wanting a drink of water!!!

I expected some visually stunning characters coming from the genius of Industrial Light and Magic.

And also admirable is its good dose of exciting gunslinging action & occasional staging of duels that add to the overall experience.

Rango meets up with many other quirky animals which really gives the movie character and I have to say that the visuals in this are stunning, some of the best out there and it really is starting to get to that point that you forget it is an animation with the scenery and hot dry climate being portrayed looking top notch.

Gore Verbinski directs a masterfully written story with undercurrents about the harsh realities that we may have to face in the future and are facing already in the presentHats off to RANGO for being brave, funny and completely entertaining throughout the 90 odd minutes and being a mirror to all those people who need to come out and find out who they actually are.

When they go past that point, they get boring.

Miss Bean (Ilsa Fisher)-had a very uninteresting character to me.

This movie was exceedingly boring, grim, unpleasant, pointless, and somewhat offensive.

Can we have "Rango" as an entertaining animation with cute and cuddly characters please?

Stunning animation, very strong, worthy, who many will remember forever!

There is a lot going on in Rango, the plot is much larger and far more compelling than we are led to believe.

We all understand Rango is a perfect reason to pay homage to one of the greatest eras in film history, however, was it necessary to offer a predictable and pointless story?

SummaryFrustrating, boring, odd, scary, slow and difficult to watch in places, all words not desirable in a summary for an animated film for younger people.

ehem, adult type themes, but overall pretty tame and enjoyable.

But this is part of the problem, the movie becomes too intelligent and a bit self indulgent in wanting to cram in so many western references and as a result I just don't think this is a movie many kids will enjoy or anyone who has seen many westerns like me.

When I left the theater, I was at a 5/10.

The film was extremely entertaining and funnier than any animated film I can think of off hand.

My only problem with the film was that it felt a little too long and some of the drawn out parts could've been trimmed a bit to streamline the film.

I had heard reviews that were mostly positive about the film and was worth watching.

I found it more than entertaining and a likely candidate for repeat viewings.

Sure it is no Toy Story 3, or an animation full of emotion, and gravitas, but it definitely provides great animation, STUNNING visuals, great morales, amazing character design, and great western film nostalgia.

I saw Rango yesterday night at a half filled (or half empty) room.

Such a waste of time and money.

Rango is a cute lizard that is lovable and entertaining.

The Plot is hard for children to realize and the characters have strange faces(I think it's beautiful and not ugly), at the middle its a little boring but also enjoyable(this is not paradox).

" plus the story seemed pointless.

In end the movie became very dull and boring.

I always had mixed feeling about the filmography of Gore Verbinsky (I think that "The Ring" and the Trilogy of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" were decent, entertaining pop-corn flicks) On the other side, I thought that "The Mexican", "Mousehunt" and "The Weather Man" were awful films, lacking of any artistic or entertaining value.

Possibly the most enjoyable film of the 2011 .

Rich themes, breathtaking animation and character design, and great voice acting to go along with it.

I looked at it more so that they were going for the slower feel of some classic westerns.

Not only do the characters move convincingly, but the colours look gorgeous and the backgrounds are imaginative and stunning.

Anyway, this is a cute and entertaining animated movie, the theme being that whoever controls the water, in the desert, controls everything.

The characters seemed disgusting and the start seemed boring and so I watched it just coz I dint have any other.

Oh, and there's also a compelling story with Rango becoming a reluctant hero and a Greek-chorus of guitar-playing birds that add to the fun.

Not being a fan of Westerns, having been bored by a film in the last year that even introduced aliens into the mix and still not capturing my attention, you can imagine my tentativeness to sit through "Rango.

The story is actually quite simple and also quite formulaic, once you start thinking about it.

An homage to a former Depp film that was completely unexpected came across very well.

It had an OK story plot but I got bored in the movie.

An original, and highly entertaining animation.

Kinda funny, but ultimately too slow to be enjoyable .

Rango spends the entire film struggling with his lack of identity and his search for meaning in life may bore younger viewers, or go over their heads entirely.

"Rango" is not only one of the best animated flicks that I've seen in the recent years, but also, one of the most enjoyable movies from the recent times.

That said, visually, it's stunning, its attention to detail is that of Pixar-quality, it's hilarious at times and a recommendation for all despite it's too-long running time.

It is a standard Western, the plot is predictable, the villain obvious, that gives 10-2 = 8 score here.

ehem, adult type themes, but overall pretty tame and enjoyable.

The animation is stunning, the character design is inspired and delightfully wacky, the story respects the western while also lightly satirizing it.

I cannot understand the good buzz this movie has gotten - we my daughter and I walked out about half way through.

For an animated movie, then "Rango" was a really, really entertaining experience, and it was one that appeals to just about every age.

My wife and I were ready to leave in the middle of the show.

The movie has fun with these various different styles of the Western, managing to never fall into spoof territory, but simply remain fun and entertaining.

I'm kind of bored watching the same-looking characters all the time.

Still okay for children though, they will probably find it funny if they can sit through the slow scenes.

" Very funny, very enjoyable--both cerebral and slapstick.

Confusing, right?

wonderfully entertaining animated spaghetti-style western .

While these things seem so cliché to the Western film, the way everything is mashed together makes it feel fresh.

Visually Stunning....

What a boring movie.

He is creating a storyline where after being faced with exciting events, he is the hero.

The story is simple and nothing really unique, but it goes on way too long.

It is too intense for young children, as evidenced by the number of mothers with bundles running for the exits when the snake appears.

Apart from that, this is a good film that had me entertained from start to finish and it provides a exciting western adventure for everyone.

Verbinski directs with a snappy, take no prisoners sense of humour, throwing joke after joke after one liner after tongue in cheek nod at us, until we feel so bombarded with fantastic imagery, brilliant voice acting and just plain fun, that we more than feel like we're getting our money's worth.

Which also brings up how dynamic and uncommon the plot is, the film shows another side to an otherwise uneventful story by giving the audience a peek into Rango's personal struggles with keeping up his lie, the film is also accompanied by an example of animation that is well above par.

Overall, this movie is a really enjoyable movie to watch with family and friends, just don't understand why kids think this was boring.

When he determines that his latest show needs some intense conflict, he finds himself flung from his tank and on the side of the dry desert road.

We all know the story, and we're already bored by it thanks to the tens and tens of movies using the same narrative ingredients.

It's actually sort of dull.

In the end, once the reason for the disappearing water supply becomes obvious, there's also a bit of an environmental message, but it wasn't preachy at all, and for the most part it was very entertaining.

A waste of money, especially with the prices of movies (plus concessions!

Pointless garbage .

Many scenes were so predictable and dumb.

Over all, I found this film very entertaining with some great animation; one I will definitely re-watch sometime… Recommended.

I feel that the introduction of the main plot of the movie is too slow and you are left with a dusty western town wondering and waiting when will an amazing twist that will turn this boring movie around...

I will definitely be purchasing this film when it comes out on DVD and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves the classic westerns of Wayne and Eastwood.

Frankly dull .

But what "Rango" dangles primarily on is on its dull narrative.

Even though the storyline is pretty predictable, the way the storyline is presented is new(ish).

The other option is that they were trying to create a really bad, boring western.

As for me, Rango was one only hero, who was making fun and entertaining the public.

Great animation + funny characters + bad scenario = boring movie .

) After enduring this movie for about 1 hour, my husband and I finally walked out of the theater--wish we had left sooner.

Imagine making an animated movie that would appeal to children and then filling it with a completely confusing storyline that acts as a commentary on various subjects (including religion) that would go completely over the head of any child watching it.

That aside, I would consider that it's likely not as interesting for children, being that the humor does get a little macabre at times and between the accent and the highly stylized art direction, the film may seem boring or perhaps a little much.

Because it was so boring, the kids in the nearly sold out theater were antsy and loud the last half of the movie which did not help the experience much.

If you are a sucker of the genre 'Western' ( those lull before the storm moments, those slowly rotating noisy fans, those dimly lit bars with filthy looking goons gulping beer, those cow boy hats, those smoking barrels) and a big fan of Johnny Depp, and don't think animated movies are only for kids - you are absolutely going to love this movie.

It actually gets even a little bit boring here and there, where the pacing kind of sinks in up to the point where it all comes together and starts to make sense again.

The Sonoran Desert is FULL of fascinating creatures!

Me and my girl friend enjoyed it very much after some disappointing animations such as Despicable Me and Megamind.

But at some point, when Rango become Sheriff, things started to be uninteresting.

Rango has to be one of the two worst animated films I have ever seen (Shark's Tale being the other) and I walked out after the first 45 minutes.

Starting with the quartet of the "story-tellers" who keep predicting the death of the main character and finishing with some cliché jokes about cowboys in the Wild West.

The seven year old didn't get those references--but he truly loved the story line, and the visuals were stunning to him.

The story proper starts when Rango – though at this stage still a nameless house-lizard – is thrown from his safe but bland pet tank in the family car.

When I first saw it at the age of like 6 years old, I enjoyed it.

The Pirates of the Caribbean series, a series I've never caught on to, I can tell from the first film it was a darker and more serious pirate adventure than the formulaic.

For one, the beginning is a little boring and does take time to get fully invested in.

Rango can be summarized in a line used by one of its characters 'its entirely predictable'...

Depp's Jake is a hapless drifter whom fate sends to a very dry Western town, Dirt, to help the people find water that has mysteriously vanished.

The dessert animation felt so dry and empty that it left me parched by the end of the movie.

Complete waste of time and money.

This is one of the more entertaining movies I have seen in a long time.

RANGO is one of the most entertaining films I've seen so far in 2011.

If you have young children, instead of "Rango", where they'll probably fidget, yawn, and whine, take them home and pop SpongeBob Squarepants's "Pest of the West" episode into the DVD player instead.

and an entertaining raw movie!!

The visuals are off-putting at first (many of the character designs are really unappealing) but do eventually provide some stunning images, particularly when the film goes down slightly surreal paths.

Thirdly, I love how the director made it seemed that the movie is going to have an unexpected end at the 'professional' parts.

A great animation worth watching again and again.

Rango is overall a very entertaining and fun family movie.

Also, there is some empty space on the open range in slow sequences leading the slightly film off track.

The sequences are action packed and entwined with main plot are many secondary layers of a more philosophical and deep sense of understanding.

My husband and I were bored silly during the first half.

The detail of every last hair on the back of a rodent, every last scale on a lizard, and every last grain of sand in the vast open desert is mind boggling.

I got the message, but missed the entertaining part.

Basically this movie is chalked full of yawner humor.

I think it's the best looking animated film to date, the CGI animation is breathtaking!

Overall a very enjoyable movie that may be a little too mature for kids since the main reason it is enjoyable is because of its story and not for humor.

This is some of the most stunning animation I have ever seen, it is fluid, and the facial movements are spot on in relaying the emotion.

"Rango," to be sure, is a visually stunning, nearly photoreal production of a group of slightly scary ragtag desert creatures in a nearly dead town visited by a bright green chameleon stranger sporting an Hawaiian shirt.

High marks in the animation and voice talent, but it is too long .

Very enjoyable entertainment.

Of course, as much as Rango keeps things humorous with their existential studies and Western homages, the movie often dips into the bag of just plain old annoying bathroom humor at times, like fart or burp gags, just to try and get a cheap laugh from the child audience whenever things seem to be going a little slow.

The movie is so boring I actually found myself falling asleep.

Very little action and a drawn out story line make this a little too adult for kids.

a boring .

Some people have said they walked out, that's ridiculous!

This is what I call 'brainwashing', and it is despicable, the worst sort of propaganda.

The opening twenty or so minutes is just very dry and "Rango" doesn't find its footing.

Well, I have to admit that the first half of the movie is OK, but when Rango comes in the village, it becomes so boring that I felt asleep.

I would imagine someone told Depp to "slow down the dialog", probably for the children's delicate comprehension.

They were able to create a compelling and interesting character out of a character that, in fact, has no foundation whatsoever.

The images and characters are just perfect, it's all very creative and visually stunning.

Its entertaining, action-packed, funny and sincere.

It is witty, funny, and action packed, while the slightly crude humour adds a much needed dose of edginess to the genre of "children's films".

Dirt's water reserves, stored in the town bank inside a water cooler bottle, is nearly empty, sceptical Beans tells Rango he should investigate where the water has disappeared to.

Ill give it just an 8 and not higher because of the Hollywood boring and predictable ending.

If you get past that than you will have the pleasure to see one of the most funny and entertaining movies made this year.

Equal attention must be paid to animation director Hal Hickel and the ever-improving staff at ILM, as they trade firm handshakes with art director John Bell and production designer Mark McCreery in the successful effort to craft stunning, unforgettable visuals, accented by outstanding lighting, which puts the fruit of the current 3-D, hi-def craze to shame.

Most people should enjoy this film it is very enjoyable on many different levels and as I said visually stunning.

Then the water goes missing… Rango was… unexpected.

My husband and i saw Rango today - when we left the theater we both looked at each other and said "i didn't like it".

Stunning western!

The Worst movie I ever seen.

My wife and I saw this movie last night and we both enjoyed it.

My children fell asleep.

Rango is entertaining and enjoying with some great animation and action.

Ultimately though it was predictable and really kind of slow.

I find this part some kind of boring.

Boring and Offensive .

I can see that dude as terrifying, and there's one of very intense scene with him where he says a couple words you don't want your baby hearing.

and did I mention the design and animation are visually stunning?

boring....

Pointless exercise.

Adults viewing it will enjoy toting up the movie's clever samplings of "oater" cliché from time immemorial.

It is entirely predictable.

The more you know about movies and American myth, the deeper the movie's roots go, and even if you don't, the movie it still very entertaining.

He's boring and annoying.

When we left the theater, every parent had a sleeping child in their arms- so maybe we weren't the only ones that were bored?

Bland and Overdone Formula .

The story line is basic; Majority of it slow and leaves you waiting for a punch line.

Beyond the kid factor, I thought the movie was highly predictable and overall just awkward.

Boring at best .

I really enjoyed it, all 107 minutes of it.

It's funny, utterly disgusting and highly entertaining.

Overall this is a movie with a funny, entertaining, semi spiritual, story, and visuals better than what we have today.

Its a super-ugly, awful, awful movie and a complete waste of 107 minutes of my life.

Boring and pretentious .

Engaging and a good life lesson .

After The Ring and Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl Gore Verbinski brings us another highly entertaining movie, this time with something slightly different as it is an animated movie.

I looked at it more so that they were going for the slower feel of some classic westerns.

Fortunately, you got yourself a viewin' of Rango to keep you ahead of the herd, in this exciting tale of precipitation-challenged survival and the mystery that ensues!

Basically, my husband and I were bored a lot of the time.

I actually fell asleep in the movie theater for about 15 minutes!

And it did start off a bit boring and slow.

From then on Rango begins a slow plot-line descent into the curse of modern movie making: Chase scenes, shootin' guns and flyin' bullets, explosions etc. A curse it seems 90% of the new movies I see fall into.

As the props give out, Rango is crestfallen as he realizes the mundane and anticlimactic world in which he lives.

Unfortunately the film's villain is cliché and its narrative arc wholly formulaic, right down to our hero's obligatory last moment crisis of self-belief.

Personally, I loved the character designs: Some people find them "ugly", but the "ugliness" of the characters is done in a beautiful, stylish way: All of them have a unique, strange appearance that makes them appealing and fascinating.

Rango is funny, childish, satiric, ironic, sarcastic, philosophical, emotional, visually stunning...

I went to go see this movie with my family and I definitely enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

The scene when Rango and his friends are being chased by bats and gophers is truly breathtaking.

But when this actor finds himself lost in the desert as a fascinating stranger in a small desert town called Dirt, he can fashion himself as a rough-and-tough, gunslinger named Rango, and be whatever the people want so he wont be alone.

But, after a while, it all gets 100% predictable and boring.

Entertaining, Original, and Worthy Of An Oscar (which it won!

Stunning, dark Depp animated offering is no child's play...

The plot is slow moving and boring at times with crude remarks to try to be funny.

Rango is completely empty, void of any kind of interesting background save for the one he creates for himself.

This film manages to be above average while excelling at nothing in particular, which at the least makes it entertaining and possibly even worth a rewatch from time to time.

I watched Rango with my little brother; we both started out enjoying it but fifteen minutes into it we were falling asleep!

It was boring and incredibly dumb.

Unfortunately i was disappointed by Rango - its a boring and unfunny movie .

Frustrating, boring, odd, scary, slow and difficult to watch in places .

The adventures of Rango and the other denizens of the town are a fun story and the way everything comes together is compelling enough to make for a fairly long film - and there's plenty of space to introduce events that mimic other classic films, paying tribute to the better things that film industry has to offer.

However the story was, at times, slow.

"Rango" is a fascinating oddity: a meta-Western, heavily larded with irony, sarcasm, cliché, and adult sensibilities, couched in an animated film format that uses the time-honored (some might venture to say "time-worn") plot structure of a movie for children.

A complete waste of time and money!!!!.

He is doing a fine job of entertaining himself although he knows that there is more to life.

If you get past that than you will have the pleasure to see one of the most funny and entertaining movies made this year.

I had such high hopes and left the theater feeling robbed, and completely dissatisfied.

After being appointed sheriff, Rango is given the opportunity to live out the exciting life he had always dreamed for himself.

My wife fell asleep, thank goodness she doesn't snore.

While the storyline is a bit trite and perhaps a bit too much material is derivative (even the score is quite reminiscent of Ennio Morricone), there are enough superlative scenes and humor to make this a worthwhile cinematic venture.

the clichés are used in fascinating manner.

He happens upon a town called Dirt and as predictable formula goes, he puts on a charade as to who his true nature is.

Accompanied by a great score, which is to me one of the strengths of the film, and you have a very entertaining film.

The movie also was soooo slow moving.

Generally, I did because it was ambitious, whip-smart, engrossing to look at, and lively.

For them they are left with the lesser part of the film – the empty noise, the fast moving sequences which seem to only exist for the sake of having them – maybe they work, but they are thinly spread over 2 hours, most of which children I guess will be more bored and perhaps annoyed at their parents enjoying it more than they.

It was just raw and boring.

My kids found it boring and confusing, except when it was scary and violent!

At many times it just felt overly drawn out.

It's a bizarre trip that just might be entertaining if I was stoned out of my mind.

It's a way better and more entertaining movie that you at beforehand would expect and on top of that, it's great looking and really wonderfully and professionally put together by director Gore Verbinski.

This movie was a waste of time and money - my only regret is that we didn't get our money back and walk out.

Most of the dialog was convoluted, contrived and complicated.

The story is very predictable and has been done a million times in a million movies.

This is one of the more entertaining movies I have seen in a long time.

It is truly entertaining, the characters are deep and alive.

Latelly we have a new Depp's movie like almost every month, and since he does the same job all of them, he's getting to repetitive for my taste.

The visuals are stunning to look at, with a more gritty approach favored towards rendering the environment and characters as opposed to the polished look associated with most animated films.

And the result is a very entertaining movie which puts ILM in direct competition with other specialized studios, such as DreamWorks Animation, Sony Picture Imageworks and Animal Logic.

Depp may be a most perfect hanger for film personas, but they do start to feel somewhat empty inside.

Don't waste your money on this one.

All in all Rango has managed to combine great jokes, funny characters and stunning visuals within a solid story.

Stupid, crappy, exhausting, long, boring, miserable, despicable, despicable, etc.. Hated it!

at just over an hour and a half, at times it felt it was a little too slow paced.

Particularly notable too is Verbinski's tribute to the helicopter attack in "Apocalypse Now" in his staging of a thrilling action sequence with flying bats- and this as well as other subtler references will certainly please film buffs.

The animation was beautifully done, the voices were great, and the story was entertaining.

Children around you start crying, you yawn and fun ends.

This was the worst movie I've seen in a long time.

The protagonist and his quest to realize who he is takes everyone on a riveting journey.

I thought was very slow moving and a little boring.

If the movie was boring you would at least be entertained by trying to guess where it all came from.

-The story is original, fun and keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Overall, if you're looking for a good animated film to watch, "Rango", is worth watching.

Looking at modern animation nowadays, i am sorry to say, this cartoon has more clichéd elements and more uninteresting characters that are lacking both in terms of depth and intelligence (seriously, is this how they want to fool the kids?

Many things were unrealistic, and just overall pointless.

A very entertaining animation film .

The storyline isn't anything new, and it's definitely not for younger children, but it's a fun little movie with excellent voice work that is worth watching.

Really engaging movie (and yes, even for the 7 year old)!.

I kept looking around at other adults who seemed just as bored as i was.

Industrial Light & Magic's first foray into the world of animation hits all the right notes for Rango is an endlessly fascinating recreation of the Wild West that brims with cutting-edge animation and is just as accomplished in its technical aspects as it is structurally sound in its narration.

I went expecting to see a fast paced, funny, western cartoon.

Save your money and watch The Incredibles on DVD.

From the texture of the characters' skin to the cracks in the run-down buildings that make up Dirt, the level of detail that ILM have created is breathtaking.

The very opening scene with the soon to be named Rango is so clever and unexpected that I thought Nickelodeon had never even screened the movie before being released.

The story was very bland and followed the overdone and boring formula of a newcomer in a town lying about his past, becoming an unlikely hero, being revealed for who he really is, get turned on by the townsfolk only to return to save the day.

It made me laugh, it made me sad, it was visually stunning, and the story was refreshingly new.

Rango is a typical western feature that is seasoned by some new spices and flows with genuine emotion which keeps it upbeat despite of its predictable script and seen-this-seen-that conflicts.

The attention to details in the animation was amazing and visually speaking the movie was quite enjoyable.

The voicing is well done, and there are several humorous moments that were enjoyable.

There's one scene in this movie at the water Bank,(one that involves opossum) that I really admire, because I know several other animation companies I would have dragged the joke out far too long and made it unfunny.

Yes, the visual experience is fascinating, the movie has flashes of pure genius, some of the dialog is witty and entertaining, etc...

Although not quite up there with the best of the Pixar films, it's still very entertaining and beautifully animated.

While it may be remarkably smart written, the story is dragged around the biggest clichés in animated films.

It is fresh, original, and fascinating, being completely different to all the CGI movies that came in the previous years.

It was slow, violent (including showing a child putting a gun in her mouth, and attempted suicide by walking into traffic - obviously NOT things you want your kids to learn) and too many four letter words to count (i.

Visually entertaining, not rated G for a reason.

And then, in a crazy moment of shattered glass and slow motion spilling water, Rango revealed itself as a movie of stunning animation and a willingness to get kinda weird.

A great movie with excellent animations, well timed humors, intense chase scenes and a nail biting final showdown,.. this movie has it all...

Visual art and character design deserve some attention too, and the atmosphere is also stunning.

Where they are trying to create an entertaining movie for kids and adults with a much deeper message.

Most of the kids in the theater were scared, bored or sad during most of the film.

In other words,it's just your regular empty-headed animated feature,and the audience is expected to be in awe just because there are digital characters rendered on screen and acting out real actor's voice over.

The script is funny, smart and quirky as well- loved the Chinatown(Ned Beatty based his performance on that of John Huston's), Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Star Wars references- the characters are genuine and likable with heart and don't fall into the trap of being too cliché(there are some but it works in the film's favour and I loved the title character), the film goes at a great pace while remaining wholly satisfying at its end with an almost elegiac quality that is there with almost all the best westerns, the slapstick action bounces along nicely and the story is far from formulaic instead it is original and inventive.

Because there are people wanting to see an exciting cowboy flick, Verbinski delivers all the goods needed to satisfy the hungry fans from wagon chases to quick-draw dueling.

As for the adults that like to watch these animated movies well enjoy it was a bore!

It also has a decidedly cynical sense of humour which is only eventually muted in the formulaic climax.

There is something so lovable about how Depp plays Rango; he is funny, skittish, over-the-top in his mannerisms, and is essentially what makes this movie worth watching.

Save your money and your time and rent Shrek instead.

"Rango", a new Dreamworks animation has some good moments for sure, but the movie drags in several places and is overall more boring than exciting on the whole.

Though there are problems about the story but it's dark, crazy, and exciting.

But the most incredible thing is that he find a way to make this wild ride something enjoyable and entertaining.

But they managed to make the character likable and entertaining.

I expected another boring badly animated something, But after a first few minutes I realized that this thing is actually worth watching.

Some people have complained about the movie being predictable.

Lest you think I'm alone in this opinion my wife said she found herself falling asleep as well and when she turned to tell me, while in the movie, saw that I was dozing.

Rango is the most boring film I've ever seen in my life.

The opening alone is surreal and priceless (and might be confusing to kids).

Not a family movie, not a kids movie, not funny, boring, and unlikable and undeveloped characters.

Rango in many ways exceeds Pixar animation, the characters are very distinctive and, although they are cartoony, they are incredibly well done, the scales, fur or feathers of the characters are so full of details that they look like real animals, The whole casting does an amazing job with the characters, especially Bill Nighy as Rattlesnake Jake, which is without a doubt my favorite part of the movie, the movie tells the story of Rango, a lying hero trying to help the citizens of a small Animal town, the story has breathtaking action scenes.

After a few missteps by Johnny Depp, who voices the titular character, he finally found an entertaining way to deliver his almost-too-obvious quirkiness of late.

I have to say a lot of the themes, language and jokes were simply not kid friendly at all - I had little kids with me as it was only PG rated and they were really, really bored by about 45 minutes in.

But the journey is enjoyable and has some pretty amazing setpieces, which I won't spoil here.

So boring I fell asleep!.

Really edge of your seat, exciting stuff conjured.
