Rattlesnake Jake: Bill Nighy
Roadkill: Alfred Molina
Review February 2011

In a bit of irony, Johnny Depp voices the lead character Rango, a sheltered chameleon whose sole purpose in life is to blend in; however, finds himself the center of attention in the gun-slinging town of Dirt - a lawless outpost overrun by Rattlesnake Jake and his gang. Recruited by the mayor to help save the town, Rango is promoted to Sheriff. And the fun begins. Written and directed by Gore Verbinski (from Pirates of the Caribbean fame), Rango is a smart, satirical, and expertly animated adventure aimed at adults and children alike. It cleverly recreates memorable movie moments and likewise, pays homage to classic westerns by way of story and character.
