Animated Comedy Adventure - This animated comedy-adventure is indeed appropriate for the entire family, but children will be the ones most entertained by it. The story and animation are engaging enough for adults, but they may not find anything too special about the film.

Critic's Review Heading
Good
The Road to El Dorado is a reasonably entertaining animated feature, which is more than enough to satisfy the family audience the film courts. But a merely adequate effort is somewhat disappointing coming from DreamWorks, the studio that had so spectacularly redefined the barriers of feature animation with their 1998 epic The Prince of Egypt. Instead of advancing the medium even further, El Dorado finds the studio--and feature animation in general--simply treading water. The Road to El Dorado is a film as easy to enjoy as it is to watch, and while that's enough for me to give El Dorado the seal of approval without hesitation, I cannot help but feel that I would be more excited about the film had it been a bit more of a challenge to like it.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Tulio (Kevin Kline) and Miguel (Kenneth Branagh), a pair of two-bit con men, believe they have found their path to fortune and glory when they win a map to El Dorado, the legendary City of Gold. There's only one problem—they've wound up locked in the brig on a ship of the Spanish explorer Cortes. After a daring escape, with the help of a clever war horse named Altivo, they manage to stumble onto El Dorado…only to find their troubles are just beginning.

The High Priest Tzekel-Kan (Armand Assante) proclaims them to be gods, plotting to use their fortuitous arrival to take power from the Chief (Edward James Olmos). To sustain the ruse and get the gold, Tulio and Miguel must enlist the aid of the beautiful native Chel (Rosie Perez), who matches them con-for-con. But time is running out, and even as they fulfill their dreams of gold, their friendship—and the very fate of El Dorado—hang in the balance.
