Blu is a domesticated Macaw who never learned to fly, and enjoys a comfortable life with his owner and best friend Linda in the small town of Moose Lake, Minnesota. Blu and Linda think he's the last of his kind, but when they learn about another macaw who lives in Rio de Janeiro, they head to the faraway and exotic land to find Jewel, Blu's female counterpart. Not long after they arrive, Blu and Jewel are kidnapped by a group of bungling animal smugglers. Blu escapes, aided by the street smart Jewel and a group of wisecracking and smooth-talking city birds. Now, with his new friends by his side, Blu will have to find the courage to learn to fly, thwart the kidnappers who are hot on their trail, and return to Linda, the best friend a bird ever had.
Animated Adventure Comedy - This is a 3D animated musical comedy aimed at children and the whole
family. Audiences may be surprised to find that this is a musical
with a few song numbers along the way. Fans of the star-studded
voice cast should enjoy, especially Jamie Foxx and will.i.am as they
perform most of the song numbers.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average Rio is not a family film; it's a children's film. As such, it fulfills its goals, although parents who elect to watch the movie with their kids (rather than dropping them off) will find the experience less than invigorating.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average For its stunning iridescent look and infectious music, Rio is a refreshing adventure worth taking.
Entertainment WeeklyFull Review Good Spring may be slow in coming, but 'Rio' arrives like a winged seasonal harbinger itself, sending viewers aloft on an exuberant, tropical-hued flight of fancy.
