Consensus: Rango is a smart, giddily creative burst of beautifully animated entertainment, and Johnny Depp gives a colorful vocal performance as a household pet in an unfamiliar world.

Leonard Maltin

Fans of Johnny Depp will enjoy his voice work as the nutty Rango; he is obviously having a good time. Ned Beatty's voice is easily recognizable as the main villain, giving him a one-two punch after working as the nasty Lotso in Toy Story 3...

James Berardinelli

The first animated film from ILM is also the first memorable motion picture of 2011.

The weirdness of the film is fascinating, but there's just so damn much of it.

Rafer Guzman

Adults and slightly older children should have a great time.

Michael Dequina

Delivers the western genre goods along with generous laughs and some impressive animation--and some brazenly warped sensibilities.

New Yorker

Though young children may enjoy it, the film is built for viewers of any age with a taste for joyful anarchy.

TIME Magazine

A CGI western comedy populated by desert critters, Rango gives the film year a belated jump start with a passel of movie-wise fun and a knockout animation style.

Tribune News Service

Amusing in small doses, marketed to kids and not really FOR kids. An undeserving Oscar winner.

A quirky comedy with the voice of Depp lingers in the air, the film is a perfect hapy ending flick for damn near anyone.
