The Road to El Dorado (2000)
Critic Consensus: Predictable story and thin characters made the movie flat.
Tulio and Miguel, a pair of two-bit con men, believe they have found their path to fortune and glory when they win a map to El Dorado, the legendary City of Gold. There's only one problem they've wound up locked in the brig on a ship of the Spanish explorer Cortes. After a daring escape, with the help of a clever war horse named Altivo, they manage to stumble onto El Dorado only to find their troubles are just beginning. The High Priest Tzekel-Kan proclaims them to be gods, plotting to use their fortuitous arrival to take power from the Chief. To sustain the ruse and get the gold, Tulio and Miguel must enlist the aid of the beautiful native Chel, who matches them con-for-con. But time is running out, and even as they fulfill their dreams of gold, their friendship and the very fate of El Dorado hang in the balance. … More

Critic Reviews for The Road to El Dorado
[Kline's and Branagh's] shared timing is so good it whets the appetite for further adventures.
It's a shame that a film with such talent and imagery behind it ended up being ultimately a waste of time...
Audience Reviews for The Road to El Dorado
I dont remember much about the movie i remember some of the comedy and i definitely remember the ending scene with the giant robot cat thing, from what i remember it was a good movie but ill probably have to watch it again to really get my results
Not a comedy, not a musical, and not a kids movie. The animation is beautiful in my opinion. The plot was pretty simple. The music was great.
When you hear that a movie you loved and grew up with when you were young sucks, it kinda hurts a bit. I saw this movie SO many times when i was younger, so after about 1 and half years, I finally watched it again. But during that period of time i kinda grew into more of a critic, so when i saw this again, my childhood ripped to shreds. But even with it's bland plot and characters, and a hurtful realization of my childhood stupidity, I'm still giving it 3 stars, since it still has nice visuals and colors, and about 12 years of love for this movie
