This is one Road whose gold apparently got paved over.

The Road to El Dorado is boderline entertaining.
January 1, 2000
For a movie about 'discovering' the New World, The Road to El Dorado covers a lot of familiar territory.
January 1, 2000
Timid and flat.

Though its tale of gold is not untarnished, The Road to El Dorado hits the buddy-movie mark.
January 1, 2000
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.
January 1, 2000
The movie feels schematic and derivative.
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 lackluster score by Elton John and Tim Rice is the first indication that the script failed to inspire the team.
January 1, 2000
Yes, it has Elton John and Tim Rice songs, but The Lion King this ain't.

January 1, 2000
DreamWorks has produced state-of-the-art computer animation but forgotten the state of the heart.
January 1, 2000
It's not cute enough for kids, not clever enough for adults. It's gorgeous but curiously dull.
January 1, 2000
The animation is handsome but hardly stirring.

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.

Suffers from lack of emotional depth.
January 1, 2000
It does not represent engaging entertainment for parents as well as their children.

January 1, 2000
Kline and Branagh, both good comedians, put a lot of zest into their roles, which makes this plundering mission more than just diverting.
January 1, 2000
The animation is uninspiring and brings nothing new to the table of animation magic.
January 1, 2000
Bright and zesty.

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.
January 1, 2000
This trip down The Road to El Dorado proceeds under the speed limit all the way.

January 1, 2000
This movie is fun to watch in ways that most recent cartoons aren't.
January 1, 2000
Did the filmmakers really know where they were going when they started on this Road?
January 1, 2000
The Road to El Dorado's biggest crime is that it isn't very good.
January 1, 2000
[Kline's and Branagh's] shared timing is so good it whets the appetite for further adventures.
January 1, 2000
Will delight kids and amuse grown-ups.
January 1, 2000
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.
