Rango

Review

Even though it got off to a slow start, Rango turned out to be entertaining and funny. Much like other successful animations, such as Shrek, it is written on separate levels — one being that understood and appreciated by children and the other strictly for adults. Most kids will not understand why thespians being illegal in seven states was so funny, but we certainly did!

Rango might be a bit predictable, but any movie that can have you getting attached to characters like Beans, Balthazar and Roadkill has some genius behind it. Roger Ebert gave it four stars and we were all thumbs up.

Would I watch it again or add it to my collection of DVD’s? You know, I think I just might.
