rangoA delightful animated western, “Rango” is engaging no doubt but it is also burdened by high expectations. Another hit out of the Gore Verbinski and Johnny Depp combination, “Rango” will surely entertain its audiences because of the sheer realism of its characters. However, it falters on the same front the Pirate series did – writing. It is a predictable story belted out to perfection by a whole bunch of talent (cast and crew). But it could have been so much better with just a slight dab of ingenuity, at least as far as the story is concerned. Even so, I’m sure it’s an adventure you would gladly embark on.

Rango (Johnny Depp) is your average lizard with an over the top imagination. Lonely and delusional, one day, this boxed up domestic lizard accidentally ends up in the midst of a desert town called ‘Dirt’. After some much enjoyable accidental heroism (Johnny Depp at his best), he charms the locals into handing him the sheriff’s batch. This brand new sheriff explodes with optimism as he promises to save the town from impending doom (the water crisis-duh, it’s a desert). In doing so, this average joe realizes that he has to become the Hero he isn’t to save what is most important to him. From a nobody to an accidental hero – back to a nobody and finally a real hero, “Rango” holds you all the way through. If only it wasn’t for the fact that the underdog story has been told gazillion times before.

There are some excellently animated chase sequences and an identifiable bunch of characters that almost make you forget that it’s an animated film. Although one can’t help but get the feeling that “Rango” relies too much on Jonny Depp’s famed antics


 Verdict: Although immensely enjoyable, expectations were much higher than the end result.

[Rating: 3]
