"I'm a fan of Johnny Depp. I also look like him."

Adam Son

"Ray Winstone as Bad Bill is awesome, although his accent doesn't quite fit the Wild West."

Charlie Lot

"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."

Gerry Moriarty

"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."

Maggie Jones

"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."

Emily McGroder

"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."

Helen Harfield

"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... "

Susan Smart

"One of the most refreshing animated films in many a year. It didn't pander to audience expectations... "

Nick Turk

"It's a cartoon for adults – really stylish."

Francis Brown

"It should have been in 3D."
