Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers has no right to be as good as it is. Everything about this movie is just wonderful. It’s jam-packed with easter eggs, has a funny script and is a perfect example of how to do a reboot properly. This movie is 90 minutes of nonstop fun and I think everyone needs to check it out this weekend.
Rescue Rangers follows Chip and Dale 30 years after Rescue Rangers was cancelled. They haven’t spoken during this time but when one of their friends is in danger of getting “bootlegged”, they must team up once again to save the day. The dynamic between the hand-drawn Chip and the CGI Dale is so much fun to watch and that’s in big part due to the talents of John Mulaney and Andy Samberg, respectively. They bounce off of each other and make the evolving relationship between the two chipmunks very believable.
The easter eggs in this film are probably what’s going to cause the most chatter from this film. As we’ve seen in the trailers, other character like Flounder and Peter Pan will appear but this film isn’t just limited to Disney. There’s characters from Warner Bros, Paramount, Dreamworks, Nintendo, Sony, MTV and so many more studios. If you can think of a popular character, there’s a good chance they’re in the movie. The rewatch value is insane as I guarantee that you’ll spot something new each time.
The film is a visual spectacle. The mix of classically drawn cartoons, CG characters, claymation, Muppets and humans are just perfect as you see the hard work put in by the crew to make this film special. You could take a screenshot from any point in the film and you’ll find something beautiful about it. It’s rare you can say that about a film.
So overall, I loved Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers. It’s a fun way to spend 90 minutes and the rewatch value is insane. If they ever decide to make a sequel, I cannot wait to see how they top it.
