An amazing but amusing and colorful movie set in Rio de Janiero that is released in both 2D and 3D, RIO is accurately an animated musical, but with a exotic flavor and only made by Blue-Sky, not Disney. All I could say that the film is much better than the ICE AGE movies and given of its premise. It seemed to have worked with the comical and visual nature and may be a little predictable. The details of this film that fitted enough to be praise-worthy are the terrific aerial views, splendid characterization of the characters and the voice cast of the acting by Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, George Lopez and Jemaine Clement

RIO in its flighty feathers that the audience of the observing families could ever enjoy a beautiful and morally incredible picture in its good side.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
