Internal Bias: I hate 3D movies. The glasses are too heavy for me and totally useless for kids. End result? You see a blurred movie

Rio has a story that is pretty straight forward. Two blue macaws(the last two in the world) need to get together (I could have said mate but then that word is not right for an animation movie somehow). The male macaw, Blue is a pet who likes his cage with its swing and his hot chocolate. He has to travel to Brazil to meet Jewel and hopefully hit it off. The hitch on which the movie hinges is that Blue cant fly. This leads expectedly to all sorts of trouble. Jewel seems to be a spunky lady to begin with but loses that edge as the movie progresses becoming quite a tepid character. There is an assorted cast of other characters,-human, bird and animal that contribute to the story.

I thought Rio was a bit simplistic compared to say Despicable me, but the dialogues are quite snappy at times and there is a bit of slapstick comedy to keep 5 year olds happy. The Carnival excitement is evoked very well with the lovely floats and the dancers.

All in all, if you like animation films and are not expecting too much then this one is an ok watch. If you have kids hanging around at home now that vacations have started you have no choice but to go for it.
