I don't know why but at first I was unsure I was going to enjoy Rango, such was all the hype. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised though, the CGI animation industry doesn't half churn out some absolute garbage but Rango maybe the one to change all that. It's very inventive, very odd in places and quite brave in the commercial world. I think it's safe to say this is for adults though, not that it's unsuitable for kids in the usual sense, I just don't think they'd understand or enjoy it but then why can't we have one for ourselves for a change. It's a heartfelt homage to the classic western and unless your a fan of the genres, you will might miss many nods to various favourites of the genres but it won't spoil it if you haven't. The animation is also far superior to anything else I've seen (ha, I wrote that about Kung Fu Panda only a couple of days ago) and the surreal fantasy scenes are brilliant. A very pleasant surprise.
