Movie Summary

Director:
Gore Verbinski
Released:
2011
Rating:
PG
Rango is the 2011 animated western sensation that marks the first 3D animated effort from Nickelodeon Movies and acclaimed director Gore Verbinski (The Ring, Pirates of the Carribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, The Weather Man). When he falls out of his family's station wagon as they drive through the desert, aspiring thespian chameleon Rango finds himself in Dirt, a small Wild West town that is suffering from a drought that is suspected to be caused by a conspiracy. Knowing that he is a stranger in these parts, Rango creates himself an entire new life (including the name Rango) that makes him into a heroic outlaw and lands him as the town's new sheriff. With gritty and masterful writing, Rango comes to life as homage to the classic western with themes and humor that play well with the adult crowd, but of course featuring light-hearted slapstick styled material to allow the younger viewers to have some fun
