"Water, Mr Rango. Water. Without it, there’s nothing but dust and decay. But with water, there’s life. Look at them. So desperate to live, that they’ll follow it anywhere. That’s the immutable law in the desert. You control the water and you control everything."
The end really brings the water issues home, when (spoiler alert!) Rango is the hero of the town when he figures out that the Mayor has been controlling the water supply by manipulating a emergency water shut-off valve in a water pipeline to Las Vegas, opens the valve, and water is returned to the town.
It's a great water movie. It calls attention to the precarious nature of water resources in areas where attention is needed most. I was reminded of the Planet Earth maps that we blogged about last August, and in particular these maps about the Las Vegas area.
