Review: Rango’s charm is sure to wrangle viewers

-A A +A

Rango, the main character in the film of the same name, lives up to his identity as a chameleon as he searches for his destiny in the middle of nowhere.
Voiced by Johnny Depp, the well-meaning reptile finds himself in the middle of the Mojave Desert after his aquarium is tossed out of the family car in a near-accident.
A run-over armadillo, named “Roadkill,” directs the chameleon with no name to go into the desert to find his destiny. This begins a fun and humorous adventure in the old west town of “Dirt.”
Taking the name of “Rango,” this chameleon easily assumes a tough guy role and ends up a hero among the town folk.
Isla Fisher plays the female in distress, a desert iguana named “Beans.” Bill Nighy is big, bad “Jake” the rattlesnake. Abigail Breslin plays the young, impressionable “Priscilla,” a mouse, while Alfred Molina is the nine-banded armadillo named “Roadkill,” and Ned Beatty plays the powerful and controlling mayor of Dirt.
He’s an  old desert tortoise and seems to know more about the town’s mystery than anyone else.  
The mystery is that the town’s water supply has dried up and no one knows why. The last bit of water held in the bank vault has been stolen.
