Rango movie synopsis: In the film, Rango is a pet chameleon who lives in a terrarium.He has long thought himself a hero, but then finds himself removed from his contemporary American southwest surroundings and ending up in an Old West town called Dirt, which is populated by various desert critters garbed like characters out of a spaghetti western. Rango soon becomes the town lawman, an occupation in Dirt that, judging from the tombstones in the local cemetery, doesn't allow for a very long lifespan. At a certain point in the narrative, Rango will come to question everything about himself.
