    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.

    It was just alright. Didn't really catch my son's attention or mine and my husbands for that matter. The only good part was the one they show on the trailers, when the bird is rapping.

    I really liked this animation and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. It was really fun to watch and even though I am an adult, I had a good time watching this film. It is very colorful and is full of fun and silly characters that you care about, the music in the film adds to its appeal. I think the film is primarily targeted to the children but I enjoyed it as an adult as well. I think that Jessie Eisenberg did a great job with the character of Blu, he was very lovable and relatable and my nephew loved Blu. I could not believe the quality of animation in this film, it was truly remarkable. Overall, I really liked tis film and I highly recommend seeing it with your children.

    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.

    It was not as good as “Ice Age” but I still had a good time watching it and my nephew had a good time as well. I thought that the film is very colorful and fun to watch, it is not in the same category as “Up” or anything that Pixar makes but it is entertaining and fun to watch and sometimes that is exactly what you need. Jesse Eisenberg was brilliant as Blu and I think this kid is so talented that it is ridiculous, Ann Hathaway was really good as well. The pace of the film was really fast and it was never boring, there are no deep thought or many meaningful lessons but it is fun and lighthearted.

    I really really liked this film and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters with your family or even alone. It is good for children and adults. The children will like the characters because they are funny and very colorful and the music is swell as well. The film is full of fun and romance and i have been cravnig for something like that for a very long time. I think that Jesse Eisenberg was brilliant in this film and he got a chance to show that he has a great comedic timing. Overall, it is a great film.
