Rio Description

RIO is an animated feature from the makers of the Ice Age films. Set in the magnificent city of Rio de Janeiro and the lush rain forest of Brazil, this comedy-adventure centers on Blu, a rare macaw who thinks he is the last of his kind. When Blu discovers there’s another – and that she’s a she – he leaves the comforts of his cage in small town Minnesota and heads to Rio. But it’s far from love at first sight between the domesticated and flight-challenged Blu and the fiercely independent, high-flying female, Jewel. Unexpectedly thrown together, they embark on an adventure of a lifetime, where they learn about friendship, love, courage, and being open to life’s many wonders. RIO brings together a menagerie of vivid characters, a heart-warming story, colorful backdrops, energizing Latin and contemporary music, and family-friendly song and dance.

In a collaboration with ESPNW, Rio Squad (working title) highlights four uniquely powerful female athletes who have dedicated their lives to being the best at their sport. It follows these women as they pursue their dreams, prepare for the Summer Games, and demonstrate that a female hero doesn't have to take the shape of a princess.

  • Best movie ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    J. Moses Boone
    When this movie first came out, I watched it about five times a day! This movie has been my favorite ever since 2011 and will be for a long long time. I am going to review this story character by character (out of 10). Here we go. Warning: spoiler alert. Blu- The best main character out of all movies. Even his name is just awesome. I think it was a good idea to have this awesome bird smart and domesticated, especially since he's been in household for 15 years. His name is creative. I don't just like this character because he's a hero, I like this character because he (only in this prequel movie) is one of only two Blue Spix Macaws period. He is funny, too. Don't forget he can't fly, because that makes me glad to see that this makes his adventure longer, and the best part of the movie is how he learns to fly. Jesse Eisenberg did an awesome job voicing this guy. Hope if there is another sequel, he will voice Blu again. I rate 15 of 10. Jewel- the perfect idea was to have this bird as Blu's at first (I guess you could say) "enemy", then his acquaintance, afterwards his friend, now they're married (a.k.a chained to each other birds). This whole story about Blu and Jewel is just plain awesomeness. I like in this story how Jewel is used to the wild and Blu is completely domesticated and they are (this time literally) chained together is good. Anne Hathaway knows how to voice this character like a pro. 10 of 10. Linda- I think it is cool (not just awesome) how Linda and Blu have been in household for portion of a lifetime ever since Blu was smuggled to Minnesota. That was awesome (and as I said earlier, cool). It's even nicer how Blu and Linda get along together throughout the movie. Now that's what I call friendship. They're so friendly, they even have good fun doing their routine together! She also worries about Blu's safety a lot about flying a plane to Rio when Tulio tries to convince Linda to go too (this was in Minnesota). Don't forget how tempting Linda is to save Blu from getting smuggled (again) throughout the entire movie! She even builds a very big sanctuary named after Blu with Blu living in it! 10 of 10 without doubt! Rafael- Funny, Friendly, Smart, Good with Advice, Likes Music, Likes Love stories, this bird is all of those and maybe even more than that! He is nice to Blu, especially with his good advice about learning to fly, love, and helping him and Jewel get unchained, and Blu returns the favor by freeing him, Nico and Pedro from smugglers on plane. That is a good example of good friendship. He is very funny especially in front of his wife and kids. George Lopez can act and make it look easy when it comes to Rafael. Hard to not say 10 of 10. Tulio- Comedy is one of the biggest things that explains Tulio, the expert ornithologist. He is good working with Linda, too. What else can I say? 10 of 10. Nico- Nico is musical Period. It's hard to say how talented this guy is at music. Also THE best friend of Pedro. They have never (and I mean never) been 25 feet away from each other for a single minute. Not only that, but they are in Blu's, Jewel's, and Rafael's fiend group. Good job on Nico is what I would've said to Jamie Foxx if I met him. Easily a 10 of 10. Pedro- Three words: hilarious, musical, and friendly. The only thing about Pedro that hasn't yet been explained under Nico's review is that he doesn't sing; he raps. A 10 of 10 Fernando- A smart but poor orphan who is very friendly and helpful towards Linda and Tulio on finding/saving Blu. He is funny. Fortunately for this guy, Linda and Tulio adopt him at the end, and he still is helpful and friendly to his new parents and birds including the main characters. 10 of 10. Nigel. A fierce, funny, and tough bad guy. That's all she wrote. 10 of 10 Smugglers- Same as Nigel, but Marcel is the only one who isn't so funny and is actually smart, just like Nigel. 10 of 10 each. I'm glad they made Rio 2 and who knows how happy I'll be if Blue Sky Studios makes a third movie for Rio. I'll be sad if not. Keep up the good work.
  • Greatest film in the history of mankind

  • Falls Just Shy

    Good animation, good story, good voice acting. Everything is good, not great, in the movie. Nice to see some risk being taken in animation storytelling. This one may fall a little short of greatness, but it still satisfies.
  • Ma-

    Am I dead?
  • GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is a GREAT and FUNNY movie!!!!!!!! It's SUPER FUN for the WHOLE family!!!!!!!!! You should DEFINITELY get this movie!!!!!! :) :)
  • Rating

    I believe this is rated G not PG. My school won't let our students watch this movie since we are renting from iTunes and we can only watch G ratings. I just thought everyone should know that everywhere else (movie website) says it is G not PG. Please change it! It is a very cute movie.
  • Loved it

    Very enjoyable movie. A must for the movie goer. Not one boring part. It was all good. Loved the story line. A bird version of Romeo and Juliet, with a different ending.
  • Rio is the best movie ever

    I absolutely LOVE this movie. I want to watch it every day but I can't because, you know I have to do work around the house and stuff. I completely recommend this movie to anyone who likes adventure-filled comedies. And it's a good movie for all ages.
  • Muy buena película

    Muy entretenida
  • Rio

    Awesome movie! It's funny and in the same time so emotional ❤❤❤
  • Not What I Was Expecting

    To be honest: when I saw the previews for this film, it looked awful. However, it's a really good movie. I enjoyed it, but not as much as I enjoyed other films like Wreck-It Ralph or Madagascar 3. Still, it's watchable. Yet, there was one part I hated in this film: the bulldog. He kept drooling everywhere. It was disgusting. Still, I can't listen to Say You, Say Me without thinking about this film. It's one of my favorite songs.
  • 😃😃😃😃😃😃

    I love this movie.! It's awesome!
  • Great Movie

    This movie is wonderful in every was. It is a great, comical, family-friendly movie. I recommend. This movie to anyone who loves adventure, and comedy in a cute kids style!
