Trippy mysticism? Existential self-reflection? This comedy-western animation has it all. Johnny Depp provides the voice for a lizard who takes on the role of sheriff in a frontier town populated by desert animals, good and bad.
The graphics are awesome; the characters and dialogue very good; the story clever and tremendous fun. Rango, directed by Gore Verbinski, is a very well put together film.
