This is one Road whose gold apparently got paved over.

The Road to El Dorado is boderline entertaining.

For a movie about 'discovering' the New World, The Road to El Dorado covers a lot of familiar territory.

Timid and flat.

Though its tale of gold is not untarnished, The Road to El Dorado hits the buddy-movie mark.

The Road to El Dorado is a bit too standard-issue to climb out from under its nouveau Disney house style look and supply much in the way of innovative glitter.

The movie feels schematic and derivative.

One wonders who was this animated film made for, anyway? Certainly not for kids. And not for this adult.

The lackluster score by Elton John and Tim Rice is the first indication that the script failed to inspire the team.

Yes, it has Elton John and Tim Rice songs, but The Lion King this ain't.

DreamWorks has produced state-of-the-art computer animation but forgotten the state of the heart.

It's not cute enough for kids, not clever enough for adults. It's gorgeous but curiously dull.

Little more than a sanitized blend of nonsense and adventure and just a teeny bit of romance, interspersed with the occasional pop song.

Kline and Branagh, both good comedians, put a lot of zest into their roles, which makes this plundering mission more than just diverting.

The Road to El Dorado is well worth traveling with the kids, though most adults will find it a somewhat less rewarding trip than DreamWorks' last, the The Prince of Egypt.

[Katzenberg] has plainly and wholly succumbed to the familiarity of his former employer's trademark formula.

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

El Dorado is a cut above most action-adventure animated movies because of the integration of Kline and Branagh's comedic talents with their cartoon selves.
