Perry’s Previews 'Rango' – Even Johnny Depp Can’t Save This Film

This film is BAD! Johnny Depp tried his best, but his character is simply not very well developed. Also, a lot like what Roger Ebert wrote on “The Green Hornet,” there is too much senseless violence that adds little to the plot.

Even Johnny Depp Can’t Save Weak Plot & Unappealing Characters!

Liked: I liked a few entertaining scenes and thequote, “No one can walk out of his own story.” I also think the fourburrowing owls in festive sombreros and instruments are funny and kindof cute.

Disliked: This film is BAD! Johnny Depp tried his best, but his character is simply not very well developed. Also, a lot like what Roger Ebert wrote on “The Green Hornet,” there is too much senseless violence thatadds little to the plot. I don’t like the character design either. Many of the townspeople are ugly, and some do not resemble any living creatures, such as a character with shaggy hair and a beak for a nose. The film has a weak story line and no powerful moral. “Wall-E” told a much better story about a similar problem.

Would I recommend it? Don’t waste your money. Sorry, Johnny, but even you cannot save it!
