    Most exceptional is the visual style, which makes even the best animated 3D look like a poor cousin.

    I've made a good case for seeing Rango, and why not; an eye feast is still a feast in this lean multiplex season. Be advised, though, of the film's peculiar deficits. The narrative isn't really dramatic, despite several send-up face-offs. It's more like a succession of picturesque notions that might have flowed from DreamWorks or Pixar while their story departments were out to lunch.

    The biggest strike against Rango, though - for both the movie and the hero - is that the lizard is so damn ugly.

    The result is an odd, occasionally engaging but often cacophonous mishmash.
