Johnny Depp's long-awaited animated western proves to be worth the hype despite some poor voice casting...

Animated homage to the WesternBy Zamy (552 reviews) from London , 06 Mar 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]From the start this animation hits you as being something different. The more mature of you will enjoy the references to films from the past. For example, a turtle based on the John Huston character in 'Chinatown'. My pre-teen boys still enjoyed it despite the angle to the past. The script is witty, humorous, intelligent and engaging all at the same time. And we get an amazing range of 'critters' enacting a wild west starved of water all wonderfully voiced (Mr Depp I take my stetsun off to you). Perhaps some of the design of these 'critters' is a bit over the top. Never mind, this is the best, most detailed CGI that I have seen. Highly recommended.

Don't waste your timeBy dotty-lottie (22 reviews) , 02 Oct 2012terrible. awful storyline, awful plot, and I think its an insult to Johnny Depp, honestly. I tried so hard to enjoy it, but it's impossible!
There's nothing else to say.
Soundtrack alone makes it worth the watchBy a customer , 28 Sep 2012We thoroughly enjoyed this film - funny, clever, a bit weird, and the soundtrack alone makes it worth the watch.
I would not watch it again.By Htgillis (1 review) , 25 Sep 2012This film was OK. nothing amazing. The animation was great, Johnny Depp, was, well, Johnny Depp, and everything else was fine. It had some great moments but for the most part the film really felt like it was dragging. With all the excitement and action on the screen, little was felt in the living room. I would not watch it again.
Very Funny!By a customer , 23 Sep 2012We enjoyed this film very much. Is easy to watch and has some clever adult humour. Was good trying to guess the voices of the actors.
Disappointing filmBy a customer , 16 Sep 2012Not nearly as good as we were expecting - messy plot, lazy characterisations and half-hearted attempts at humour. Disappointing, especially from Depp, who usually chooses funny, quirky, endearing films.
