‘Johnny Depp Is Rango’ A Twist On Old Westerns

If you’re a fan of old Westerns, you’re sure to enjoy the new movie, ‘Johnny Depp Is Rango,’ starring its namesake, Johnny Depp.

‘Johnny Depp Is Rango’ is described by Paramount Pictures as “an exciting new twist on the classic Western legend of the outsider who saves a town — and himself in the process.” That, it definitely is.

‘Johnny Depp Is Rango’ is from the director of ‘The Pirates of the Caribbean’. It follows Rango (Johnny Depp), a sheltered chameleon living as an ordinary family pet, while undergoing an identity crisis. He “accidentally” winds up in the gritty, gun-slinging town of Dirt, where he – not surprisingly – stands out from a “cast of characters.”

When the movie opens, four owls – dressed in western gear and playing guitars – are singing and predicting Rango’s upcoming fate. The owls continue to play prominent roles throughout the movie.

‘Johnny Depp Is Rango’ is rated PG, however, a more appropriate rating would be PG-13, largely because of some sexual innuendos that are very apparent throughout the movie.

‘Johnny Depp Is Rango,’ opens Friday, March 4, at theaters nationwide.
