IT may look like a car­toon, have a fam­ily rat­ing and con­tain a tonne of goofy go­ings-on, but Rango is def­i­nitely one grown-up an­i­mated fea­ture. It fol­lows a do­mes­ti­cated chameleon with a pen­chant for the­atrics who finds him­self out of his tank and in the desert help­ing a trou­bled town­ship by serv­ing as its sher­iff. Sounds kid­die, but it’s a so­phis­ti­cated spaghetti west­ern ode that’s vis­ually stun­ning, sur­real and won­der­fully weird.

Ex­tras: ★★½ An ex­tended cut of the film ac­com­pa­nies the the­atri­cal ver­sion and there’s a se­lec­tion of deleted scenes.
