Purely Joyful Movie!
The movie really just wants to entertain people.
Soundtrack- a record in animation, or any other movie. Will.i.am and Jamie foxx are a great combination. Jewel (Anne) great voice, great acting. Rio is one of the most perfect places for animation, there are so many colors already! I love Romeo and Juliet movies, especially animal ones. Personally, i could have listen to Hot Wings all the day, especially the part of Jewel singing.Well, now i don't really want a Cockatoo... but i do want a Macaw! I started looking in the internet, finding out that they are actually kinda cute, and are probably smarter than a cat. Great movie, i literally have nothing against it.
i saw this film 2 years ago and i was moved not only because of animation was amazing but the story and characters were amazing Disney along with Pixar is famous of these things but this time fox studios & blue sky studios steals the show directed by Carlos Saldanha this motion picture of amazing birds will amaze you anytime.the plot:blue is a male macaw parrot from Rio DE Janeiro Brazil smuggled to USA a girl named Linda adapts him as he is growing up he is still unable to fly but soon blue;s life changes as he gets ready to make a trip to Brazil.the cast:everyone did a good job in voice acting i wont name any actors here it will take time.yes there are few annoying scenes in it but the flaws are overshadowed by great comedy specially the little bird and all the beautiful scenes of Brazil there is a sequel to this film called Rio 2 2014 do see that one too its the second best film in the series 10 years before this film came out the company Lu launched the biscuits named Rio in Pakistan when this film came up i jumped about the same name in excitement but they have promoted Rio 2 everywhere that is a good move.Overall Rio 2011 is a underrated film made with pure heart it is one of the best film release recently go watch it its not for kids only if your above 100 years old you will still love it my rating is 10/10:Recommended
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.

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.

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)
