The Dragon Warrior has to clash against the savage Tai Lung as China's fate hangs in the balance. However, the Dragon Warrior mantle is supposedly mistaken to be bestowed upon an obese panda who is a novice in martial arts.
An outlaw cat, his childhood egg-friend and a seductive thief kitty set out in search for the eggs of the fabled Golden Goose to clear his name, restore his lost honor and regain the trust of his mother and town.
Rango is a pet chameleon always on the lookout for action and adventure, except the fake kind, where he directs it and acts in it. After a car accident, he winds up in an old western town called Dirt. What this town needs the most is water, but they also need a hero and a sheriff. The thirsty Rango instantly takes on the role of both and selfishly agrees to take on the case of their missing water.Written by
As of 2017, this is the only non Disney/Pixar film of the 2010s to win the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. See more »
As mentioned, Rango's pistol looks intentionally like the Colt Peacemaker; whose action is advanced, (cylinder rotated), by pulling back the hammer.
Colt Peacemaker cylinders are rotated by cocking the hammer; loading cartridges and removing fired brass are by opening a loading gate on the right side.
A Peacemaker's cylinder is never swung out to one side, as Rattlesnake Jake opened the cylinder to dump five shells out; leaving one shell in the cylinder.
Colt Peacemakers simple mechanisms allow that classic Peacemaker single action look. Double action revolvers, i.e. where pulling the trigger cocks the hammer and advances the cylinder, prevents double action revolvers from ever having clean Peacemaker lines.
It appears the pistol as used is some amalgam of 20th century double action revolvers, stuffed into Peacemaker looks; an anachronism. See more »
[realizing it's a swarm of bats in the form of a hawk]
Ain't no hawk, ain't nothin' but bats!
[starts shooting at them]
Stick to the plan boys, bleed the devil dry!
[swarm spreads out, Jake laughs excitedly while trying to shoot every bat down, realizes he used up all his bullets, turns to see Rango pointing a gun at him]
It only takes one bullet.
You ain't got the nerve.

The DVD and Blu-ray releases include an extended version, which adds one scene after Rattlesnake Jake drags the Mayor off into the desert. Due to the water that has flooded up from the ground, the town of Dirt has become a beach resort and re-named itself Mud. As the locals enjoy the new scenery, Rango gets news that Bad Bill is causing trouble in another town. He decides to make a dramatic exit, delivering an inspired speech to the town while mounted on a roadrunner, but falls out of the saddle before he can finish it. See more »
This movie is insane! I read a lot of negative reviews here, and all of them had one common factor: children. Of course it's not meant for your 4 year old kid, It's a Gore Verbinski movie. This guy made The Ring and Pirates of Caribbean, none of them had any child-safe approach about them. if you want to make your children happy, go and watch Mars need Mom or something.
Ranting aside, this movie is one hell of fun journey and a feast for eyes. No 3d, shining bright colors, A good script that gives space to each and every character, strange and beautiful landscapes; the list is quite endless. It also happens to be quite post modern in it's approach. I couldn't believe what I was watching on screen. You definitely will long for a second watch.
in movie Things were not shiny and tidy. It was full of grime, the characters experienced real helplessness and despair; you could feel for them. That's a big achievement for an animation movie.
