The movie was a mediocre animated film, in terms of how the story goes. There wasn’t really great about the movie. It has the same cliché theme of heroism. Moreover, the protagonist goes again for being self-centred and haughty upon having too much attention. I would not also see it totally fit for children. There was inappropriate language and death, which isn’t really necessary. Although the moral of the story was obvious, there were some scenes that are open to different interpretations. There were also less conflict and less intimidating antagonist. As the story builds its tension, I was disappointed. It was not as equally thrilling as I expected.
However, I surely enjoyed the compelling characters. There were singing owls, armadillo, iguana and some much more. I also experienced many comic reliefs and other entertaining scenes. Like the part where they start shooting each other riding with bats. The visual effects are stunning, down to the minor details. The score and music was engaging, it really adds depth to the scenery.
I wouldn’t say you should really watch it. True, it was funny and has outstanding graphics but apart from that it was flat. In fact, it uses many references from western movies, which I didn’t appreciate since I am an Asian. However, if you are with your friends or family and want to kill time and be entertained. Rango will suffice your need.
