The computer-generated animation in “Rango” (courtesy of George Lucas’ Industrial Light & Magic special effects studio) is startling, crisp and bright. The lighting effects and character details are rich, as are the sound and music. The filmmakers paid attention to cinematography. So we’re treated to wonderful swooping shots, quirky angles and astonishing camera movements that put us right in the middle of the action, such as with a big chase scene through a desert canyon. Technically, the film is a minor marvel.
Der Bürgermeister versucht ein letztes Mal Rango auf seine Seite zu ziehen, doch dieser überlässt ihn der Klapperschlange. Jake erweist Rango seinen Respekt und verlässt mit dem Bürgermeister im Schlepptau die Stadt, um mit diesem abzurechnen. Rango hat die Stadt gerettet und Bohnes Herz erobert.
Beans discovers that the water reserves, stored in a water-cooler bottle in the bank, are dangerously low. At the Gas Can Saloon, the chameleon, using bravado and improvisation to fit in, presents himself as Rango (after taking his name from the last part of the word Durango), a tough drifter. He quickly runs afoul of outlaw Bad Bill (Ray Winstone), narrowly avoiding a shootout when the hawk returns, scaring Bill. The hawk chases Rango until by luck Rango kills the predator by crushing it under an empty water tower that he accidentally caused to collapse. In response, the Mayor (Ned Beatty) appoints Rango the new sheriff. A skeptical Beans demands Rango investigate the water problem while the townsfolk worry that the hawk was the only thing keeping gunslinger Rattlesnake Jake from returning to terrorize them.
