2012 Academy Awards
Best Animated Feature (Won)

RANGO is sort of like an animated version of BLAZING SADDLES, but is a pretty good movie that is not shot in 3D and it has interesting animation filled with many funny scenes. I praise Johnny Depp for his performance as Rango because he does it so wonderfully than the other actors and he's a brilliant man.

I'm surprised that RANGO won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature and is probably the amazing thing that happened in my entire life.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie


  1. I think it is a funny movie because his belt fell down

  2. I thought the animation was brilliant and the actos brought the weird collection of characters to life.

    Certainly better for adults to watch for kids rather than kids to watch with adults.
