Rio 3D Movie Reviews
User reviews on Rio 3D
It is a cute movie for the whole family. I love the different animals and characters that were used to tell the story. I also loved the scenery and colors.
The guys at Blue Sky made their names with the Ice Age movies, funny films that weren't anything special (at least the first one was funny). With Rio, they've finally created something worth singing about. And singing is the operative term: it's a musical film, both aurally and visually. It's a bright film that, unlike most, benefits greatly from 3-D.
Blu (voiced by Jessie Eisenberg, whose distinctive voice works well for the part) is a macaw living in the jungle when he's poached and sold to a nice bookstore owner in Minnesota. When a scientist informs the woman that her bird is one of only two left on earth, she and Blu head back to Brazil so the birds can...well, make more birds. There, Blu is again stolen away, and the race is on to find him.
The first thing you notice about Rio is how it jumps off the screen, and I don't just mean the 3-D. It's incredibly colorful, with great music by Sergio Mendes. The voice acting is uniformly good, and while the story isn't anything special, the movie keeps up its pace all the way to the end, so you don't really notice that there isn't much in the way of deep thought going on. It's a fun movie makes you feel good.
What a beautiful film this was! I love that I saw it in 3D with my little sister, she was spellbound and would not shut up about it for hours. The film is very colorful and fast paces so it is not boring to watch and it is also fun. The songs in the film are really good and I especially enjoyed “I poop on people and blame it on seagulls” which is so hilarious and entertaining. I was pleasantly surprised by Jesse Eisenberg who was adorable as Blu and appearantly he can be really funny. Jemaine Clement who played a villain Nigel was really funny as well and his British accent fit really well with his character. It was a really fun movie to watch with great actors and great visuals.
This is a film by Carlos Saldanha who also directed all of the “Ice Age” pictures. I think the film was pretty good, but it did not have any deep meaning or life lessons, therfore it was created purely for entertainment and it served it’s purpose very well. The film is beautiful to watch and the the quality of animation is truly breathtaking. I think this film was made more for children then adults but the adults can still appreciate the beauty of the picture. The music in the film was quite catchy and entertaining and I had fun listening to most of the songs. Overall, it is an entertaining film that children will love and adults can easily sit through and have a pretty good time as well.
