We Got This Covered

While it may entertain the kiddies for a while, for the older folks out there (and that means anyone 10+), Rio is just another animated yawner.

The posters say From the creators of Ice Age, so don't say you haven't been warned.

Rio is difficult to watch without imagining it was a light bulb idea bandied around the office of the Rio de Janeiro Tourist Board...

Sarasota Herald-Tribune

A competently-made animated film crafted specifically for the toddler set, who may enjoy the bright colors and boingy action. Older kids and parents will find themselves, if not quite bored, then only modestly engaged.

The Standard

The best and, unfortunately, most obvious simile to describe this film is to liken it to a parrot - it's pretty to look at it, but when it talks it doesn't say very much.

Slant Magazine

Carlos Saldanha's sincere but uninspired romp into the glossy postcard atmosphere of Rio de Janeiro is one long courtship that ultimately falls flat.

Bird-brained animated comedy that won't fly.

The only thing surprising about this lackluster animated production is that it attracted an A-list voice cast. But that's how things are today when even mediocre animation can be a big draw.

The plotting here is of the set-up-the-pins-and-knock-them-down variety, so you'll pretty much predict every grinding of the script's gears.

The director, Carlos Saldanha, collaborated on the "Ice Age" trilogy. What he has developed here has tons of atmosphere and, less helpfully, tons of over-plotted chaos disguised as a story.

The Baltic Times

There is nothing wrong with this film - the voice cast are all good, the animation is colorful and the script peppered with one-liners. But it all seems so formulaic.

Just like its blue feathered protagonist, Rio has the look yet doesn't soar to the heights needed to make this animated adventure / musical hybrid work.

Too timid to be either inspired or outrageously inept, Rio is merely a bird of a familiar feather.

Eye-catching visuals and a bland storyline virtually cancel each other out in new animated adventure Rio.

in the ever flat-lining world of 3D CG cartooning, it's the same old bird spit.

Antagony & Ecstasy

The platonic ideal of a children's movie that is completely devoid of either merit or flaw, existing solely that it might exist.

The characters, the jokes, and even the striking visuals - they all dissipate from the memory like a piece of candy that seems tasty in the moment but ultimately isn't very filling.
