Readers review Rango (PG)
Readers review this week's big film
Thursday 17 March 2011
"I'm a fan of Johnny Depp. I also look like him."
"Ray Winstone as Bad Bill is awesome, although his accent doesn't quite fit the Wild West."
"Only adults will get all the jokes in the brilliant script! Spot the references to classic films like Apocalypse Now and any Clint Eastwood western. My favourite film of the year so far."
"It's one of the best CGI animated films I've ever seen. But the storyline was unoriginal and the humour feeble. It's worth watching just for the fantastic graphics. The creatures' facial features and reactions are wonderful."
"Johnny Depp is very good and creates a memorable and unusual lead character and some of the more zany animation is a nice touch. Having been spoilt with top notch animated features recently, such as Toy Story 3 and Up, this just fails to match up and I came away feeling a little disappointed."
"I thought Rango was excellent – potentially one of the best movies I've seen so far this year. But I wouldn't necessarily say it's a kids' movie... the creatures are often grotesque."
"The kids loved it – well, the ones aged 10 anyway. I thought it was ok, but as a mum, I'm sick of kids' movies as you might imagine... "
"One of the most refreshing animated films in many a year. It didn't pander to audience expectations... "
"It's a cartoon for adults – really stylish."
"It should have been in 3D."
