'Rango' Short Review, New Clips & TV Spots

Rango is out this Friday (4th March) and some extended clips and TV spots have been released which you can view below.

Gore Verbinski has done an excellent job with 'Rango,' the superbly animated tale of a chameleon that aspires to be a swashbuckling hero who finds himself in a Western town plagued by bandits and is forced to literally play the role in order to protect it. Having seen a preview screening last week I thoroughly enjoyed this thematically witty adventure, any kids film with an on form Johnny Depp channeling some Hunter S. Thompson à la 'Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas', very clever references to Sergio Leone films and mix in some old school Looney Tunes sensibilities, gets a big thumbs up. The film works to its strengths and has set the bar high for other animated film that follow this year to match it. It also does a great job of appealing to both young audiences and keeping that older more mature smart moviegoer happy too. Also refreshing (for this movie lover) to see a newly released animated film not in distracting 3D.
