Review
What a fantastic animated movie.It has been a while since I laughed so hard almost every 5 mins.I was pleasantly surprised.I simply loved the script.Definitely one of the best script for an animated movie.Not only has the main characters have some really funny lines,I felt the other characters had some really good scenes as well.Johnny Depp was definitely suited to be Rango.I doubt there is no one quirky enough to do the role.Bill Nighy and Ray Winstone were absolutely brilliant as the bad guys.And their voices are so recognizable.
I managed to watch the making of and it was a very interesting way of filming an animated movie with motion captures and all.and all the cast were involved together unlike the traditional voice acting.
Now not only were the voice acting and script fantastic ,I got to say the animation department did a fine job as well.I'm not really an animation fan,but Rango took the cake for me.Right from the characters appearance, to the close ups and the textures as well.Kudos to that.
There are also some movie references which perhaps only avid movie goers will get.For me I loved the Hunter Thompson reference and of course the Eastwood one.I enjoyed this movie so much,there is a high possibility I might watch it again.

Definitely worth watching on a weekend. Rango is a must watch!
