January 1, 2000
It does not represent engaging entertainment for parents as well as their children.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
January 1, 2000
The songs should go. They're filler, but so is the movie itself, a cartoon to keep kids semi-happy until the next one comes along.
January 1, 2000
It's animated fluff, separated from the eye-candy you see on the Cartoon Network only in its length and high production values.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
October 24, 2001
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.
Full Review | Original Score: C

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

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.

Filled with potholes and ruts.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 1, 2000
Su argumento es bastante débil y esta estructurado tan pobremente que no logra empatizar con la audiencia

December 10, 2001
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.25/5

El Dorado is not striking or groundbreaking, but it's accomplished enough.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
January 1, 2000
Little more than a sanitized blend of nonsense and adventure and just a teeny bit of romance, interspersed with the occasional pop song.

This trip down The Road to El Dorado proceeds under the speed limit all the way.

This is one Road whose gold apparently got paved over.

January 1, 2000
A lazy, torpid piece of animated tourism destined to leave the more demanding varieties of small children in the audience reaching for their Pikachus.
January 1, 2000
DreamWorks has produced state-of-the-art computer animation but forgotten the state of the heart.
January 1, 2000
Suffers from lack of emotional depth.
January 1, 2000
The animators' talents and diligence have been corrupted on every front.
January 1, 2000
One wonders who was this animated film made for, anyway? Certainly not for kids. And not for this adult.
January 1, 2000
The animation is uninspiring and brings nothing new to the table of animation magic.
January 1, 2000
It uses a new approach but lacks the energy and ambition to match breathtaking animation with an exciting story.
