Rio (2011)


This a Covid-19 2020 minireview!

“Maybe we could find a bus schedule or something? ” – Blu

Number of Times Seen – Twice (6 Feb 2012 and 11 May 2020)

Brief Synopsis – An exotic bird that was raised in America needs to deal with the different way of life when he is stolen and taken to the South American jungle.

Bottom Line – Fun film that manages to work really well. Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway are both great as the voices of the two main characters. The visuals are wondrous to look at and they do such an amazing job with the animation of it all. The story plays out in a great way and they are able to give us both poignant and comedic scenes along the way.  They do a nice job keeping things pretty unique and fun as the story unfolds in ways one might never expect. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The film was based on a true story of a Spix’s macaw named Elvis, living in the United States. His owner agreed to let Elvis join the captive breeding program to help preserve his species. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
