It’s not bad or unwatchable but despite the amplitude of the spectacle, the end result is underwhelming.

This movie really captures the feeling of Rio and has a good plot (even though it's not hard a hard plot to find in other movies) but it has a loveable cast of characters and is really enjoyable to watch

It has been a long time since I saw such a bad, bad movie. I can not say anything bad about the animation, for it has been done with great skill and finesse, but the story line is more than bad. American ignorance and chauvinism reign throughout the whole movie and I was hardly able to watch more than a quarter of the movie.Portraying Brazil as evil, poor, dumb and what not .. while glorifying the so called American dream by using one cliché after the other.This movie is not funny, not entertaining and very, very bad. I hate it. And trust me, I tried watching it, but it was all really too much.Shame on the makers.

Get set for fun, action and adventure. This animated feature is about a domesticated Macaw named Blu(Jesse Eisenberg), who has yet learned to fly. He lives an ideal life with his best friend and owner Linda(Leslie Mann)in a small town in Minnesota. The thought of Blu being the last of his kind goes right out the window, when they discover there is another Macaw living in Rio de Janeiro. Upon arrival in the large and exotic Rio, Blu meets a female Macaw named Jewel(Anne Hathaway); the two are kidnapped by animal smugglers. Coming to the rescue is a group of smooth-talking, street smart city birds. After Blu is able to escape, he now relies on his new friends to help him learn to fly. Thus Blu is now a bird on the move and is able to stay ahead of the kidnappers still in pursuit.Outstanding animation and color; lively music and comedy for the entire family. Rounding out the talented collection of stars providing voices: Jamie Foxx, Will I Am, Tracy Morgan, George Lopez and Wanda Sykes.

A S

Breakdown (out of 10): Overall: 7 Plot: 5 Animation 10 Acting: 8.5Review Summary: The phrase "fish out of water learns to swim" describes Rio. The plot is formulaic; New, unfamiliar situation and people, trials and tribulations, then triumph. The animation is top-notch. Great voice acting, good songs and singing. Perfect Family movie for killing an evening with the kids.Plot: The overall plot is simple to understand. The character interaction is good, but character development throughout the film is weak. This is a major detriment for adult enjoyment of the film, but not bad for young children.Animation: The cinematography in this films is wonderful. The scenery, character designs, and character expressions are top notch. A visual treat!Acting: The voices and singing were great; dialogue was light-hearted, and perfect for each situation. The choice of actors was great, although I would have liked to have seen a greater diversity in the lead roles. (Great leads though)
