It's a shame that a film with such talent and imagery behind it ended up being ultimately a waste of time...

I expected to have a lot more fun...than I did, which is a shame. I think it's going to fall quickly by the wayside.

El Dorado is not striking or groundbreaking, but it's accomplished enough.

Immerses the viewer with vivid color and awe-inspiring artwork from the first frame.

The filmmakers want an epic feel to the film, but they provide neither context nor dimension to the people of El Dorado themselves.

Sight and Sound

As good as most recent post-Katzenberg Disney films, and certainly -- with its stylised characterisation and bursts of witty dialogue -- a great deal better than the Mouse's turgid mega-budget epic Dinosaur.

A nice animated trip for kids, but hardly a required journey for grown-ups.

Good clean fun, that will keep kids (and most adults) absorbed in its shiny cartoon bubble throughout.

Gets by with a story that is good but not great -- not unlike the famous Road movies made 50 years ago by Bob Hope and Bing Crosby.

Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

In the few moments when the noise and the fast-paced story subside long enough for a good look at the scenery, the animation is impressive.

Shadows on the Wall

Not only is the story reed thin, but it's also undercut by continual anachronistic dialog that's funny but alienates us from the adventure and characters.

Flipside Movie Emporium

Everything about it evokes comparisons to other animated features, and while it more or less holds its own, nothing comes across as new or even interesting.

Certain scenes are good, but visual wonder can only take a film so far, especially when that visual wonder is becoming an expected component.

[Kline's and Branagh's] shared timing is so good it whets the appetite for further adventures.
