Rango is a chameleon who always dreamed of becoming a hero like in the movies. When he wakes up in the position to save a town from the wild west he realizes that he can prove everyone that he is really brave.(Rango’s voice is assured by Johnny Depp)
In Rango cliches and stereotypes are mixed togheter and are added colorful dialogues.By the multitude of characters is trying to portray the fierce bandit type, the corrupt mayor, the gunmen scary, big-eyed and naive child , but with smart lines, tough women, which added more “specific” realities of their furry, winged or crawling. Outrageousness surpasses the typology in order not to stay in the mind with some chameleons that are not distinguishable from each other through specific behavior.
Dirt city seems a character itself. Artist’s vision “Crash” McCreery brought something new into the look of classic western town.From distance, Dirt city looks like a typical western city, but when you get closer you see that everything is made from sticks of candy bars, cans of petrol, old tires, bottles.
Depp had a chance to tell a little about the character which gives life in animated film Rango.
