This is a very solid thriller." Whist another critic comments "Liam Neeson elevates the proceedings considerably, but Unknown is ultimately too derivative – and implausible – to take advantage of its intriguing premise".

As of March 4, 2011, it has an 88% rating on the film critics aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes, based on 139 reviews. The site's consensus says, "It may not be as charming as it thinks it is — and it certainly isn't for kids — but Rango is a smart, giddily creative burst of beautifully animated entertainment" Richard Corliss of Time applauded the "savvy humor" and called the voice actors "flat-out flawless." Bob Mondello of National Public Radio observed that "Rango's not just a kiddie-flick (though it has enough sillyslapstick to qualify as a pretty good one). It's a real movie lover's movie, conceived as a Blazing Saddles-like comic commentary on genrethat's as back-lot savvy as it is light in the saddle." Frank Lovece of Film Journal International, noting the nervous but improvising hero's resemblance to the Don Knotts character in The Shakiest Gun in the West, echoed this, saying that "with healthy doses of Carlos CastanedaSergio LeoneHunter S. ThompsonChuck Jones and Chinatown ... this [is] the kid-movie equivalent of a Quentin Tarantinopicture. There's no gory violence or swearing, of course, but there sure is a film buff's parade of great movie moments." Roger Ebert of theChicago Sun-Times called the film "some kind of a miracle: An animated comedy for smart moviegoers, wonderfully made, great to look at, wickedly satirical.... The movie respects the tradition of painstakingly drawn animated classics, and does interesting things with space and perspective with its wild action sequences." In one of the few negative reviews, Michael Phillips of the Chicago Tribune acknowledged its "considerable care and craft" but called it "completely soulless" and that watching it "with a big suburban preview audience was instructive. Not much laughter. Moans and sobs of pre-teen fright whenever Rattlesnake Jake slithered into view, threatening murder."

MARS NEEDS MUMS: Nine-year-old Milo (Seth Green, voiced-over by Seth Dusky) finds out just how much he needs his mom (Joan Cusack) when she's nabbed by Martians who plan to steal her "mom-ness" for their own young. Milo's quest to save his mom involves stowing away on a spaceship, navigating an elaborate, multi-level planet and taking on the alien nation and their leader, the Supervisior (Mindy Sterling). With the help of a tech-savvy, underground earthman named Gribble (Dan Fogler) and his bionic underground pet named Two-Cat (Dee Bradley Baker) and a rebellious Martian girl called Ki (Elisabeth Harnois), Milo just might find his way back to his mom — in more ways than one.

Big Momma's House Three - Like Father Like Son is the Best Thin Black Comedian in a Fat Old Black Woman Suit movie ever! That says a lot that out of the thousands and thousands of Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence and who knows who else thin black male comedian movies where they put on a fat old person suit to get (or really just try to get without succeeding) cheap laughs, this one is the very very best. But it also says even more that this movie is still a one out of ten on the IMDb rating scale, because even though it's better than those movies it is still one of the worst movies I have ever had the bad luck to see in my entire life.
