The Beginning: I loved the beginning, We've got ourselves some action, plenty of comedy, even some self-deprecation from the filmmakers, and then a metaphorical conundrum to get us pondering — success! After the first 15 minutes or so; I thought this movie was going to be a joy to watch, so I thought...
The Look: The animations look stuning; and really stand out. The characters are amazingly detailed and look great. Honestly, I've never seen an animation quite like this and it was so much fun towatch itand take it all in. It gives the movie life and brings something new to the genre.
The Little Moments: From the amazing Mariachi band to the way Rango's eyes dart around and his broken neck, there are a number of small details in this film that make it worth seeing. There was so much time and effort put into all of these characters it's hard not to love them.
Voice Acting: The voice acting is stunning. Johnny Deppis fantastic and really shines from his other non-live action parts. Everyone else is great too.
The Length: The movie had tons of potencial but is let down by it's length. The movie didn't have enough background information to keep the movie interesting. The movie was humorous at a lot of parts; although out found most were not funny. I was bored all the way through the miiddle, and the end was a bit better. The length just begins to weigh down everything you see in front of you.
Too Much: At the end of the second act you realize that the mission that they're on doesn't actually push the story forward and it begins to feel like they're just throwing everything into the fire. I guess it's nice to have a big action sequence at that stage of the film, but when it doesn't really the story forward and in fact, gives us a whole new obstacle to over-come, the story ends up taking away from the charm that made the film so great in the beginning.
The movie was enjoyable at some parts; but most were boring. I was inspired by the wonderful animations and design. The characters have tons of feeling and detail. The voice acting was excellent as well. However, all ofthis is letdown by it's poor story and length. Less is more in these situations. If itbeen able to stick with the original concept, this film would have been one of the greatest films I've ever seen. I was dissapointed after seeing this; I feel like True Grit easily overcame this movie in most aspects. The movie is worth seeing if you like westerns or love films that give it their all.
