Rango (2011)

Rango (2011)

Not your typical Western gunslinger, Rango is the story of the eponymous chameleon’s journey from family pet to accidental hero. Its cast of crazy creatures (voiced by Johnny Depp, Isla Fisher, Ray Winstone and Bill Nighy, among others) makes for an animated treat that’s a cut above your bog standard sub-Pixar effort. And the visuals – created with the help of Skyfall cinematographer Roger Deakins – conjure up a uniquely skewed take on the look of the Old West.
