Latest American animated movie ‘Rango’, story of a tiny chameleon with a huge heart on an epic quest to save a town like no other, as he transforms himself into the high-falutin’ legend he once only pretended to be is now being screened at the newly built Liberty-Lite, Kollupitiya.
Directed by ‘Pirates of the Caribben’ famed Gore Verbinski , the entertaining animation stars Oscar nominee Johnny Depp in the multi-chromatic title role, Rango. Others in the cast are Isla Fisher, Abigail Breslin, Alfred Molina, Bill Nighy, Harry Dean Stanton, Ray Winstone, Timothy Olyphant as the Spirit of the West.
The story begins as Rango, after a lifetime as a family pet watching the world go by in a glass-walled terrarium, finds himself lost in the Mojave Desert, where he wanders into the last Wild West outpost of Dirt, a town every bit as gritty as its name. Rango hopes he’ll blend in, but he quickly stands out, even among a population that includes a tortoise Mayor, a rattlesnake renegade, bank-robbing prairie dogs, gun-slinging Gila monsters and the first female lizard Rango has ever encountered.
When Rango unwittingly becomes the arid town’s new Sheriff and their last hope to find hydration, he knows he’s in a heap of trouble. Lore has it that good guys don’t last long in Dirt, but Rango is ready to buck the odds as he rides his own path to becoming the one thing even a chameleon can’t fake: a real-deal hero.
A Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies release, Rango takes audiences on a dusty ride into an inventively different world, an arid, edge-of-the-desert town run by an amazingly off-beat collection of critters and threatened by corrupted creatures -- all brought to life by an accomplished team of storytellers and an ensemble of some of film’s most popular performers.
