From the makers of the hit "Ice Age" series comes "Rio," a comedy adventure about taking a walk on the wild side. Blu is a domesticated Macaw who never learned to fly, living a comfortable life with his owner and best friend Linda in the small town of Moose Lake, Minnesota. Blu and Linda think he's the last of his kind, but when they learn about another Macaw who lives in Rio de Janeiro, they head to the faraway and exotic land to find Jewel, Blu's female counterpart. Not long after they arrive, Blu and Jewel are kidnapped by a group of bungling animal smugglers. With the help of street smart Jewel, and a group of wise-cracking and smooth-talking city birds, Blu escapes. Now, with his new friends by his side, Blu will have to find the courage to learn to fly, thwart the kidnappers who are hot on their trail, and return to Linda, the best friend a bird ever had.

Best movie ever!
Am i the only one who thinks........Average?
The film creates a perfect balance between action and depth of basic needs, in the midst of an infertile atmosphere.
When Blu, a domesticated macaw from small-town Minnesota, meets the fiercely independent Jewel, he takes off on an adventure to Rio de Janeiro with the bird of his dreams. Really well done animation with excellent voice acting and lots of adventure alongside a great villain and a terrific dramatic opening plus baby Blu was really adorable and loved his interactions with Linda. Rio maybe is not as good as some of Disney's Pixar's Classics like Toy Story or The Incredibles but it does deserve a bit more recognation and a better score here in IMDb. It's a movie that both kids and their parents can enjoy and it has some great messages and jokes in it that will for sure make you laugh. (A+)
This movie really captures the feeling of Rio and has a good plot (even though it's not hard a hard plot to find in other movies) but it has a loveable cast of characters and is really enjoyable to watch
i saw this film 2 years ago and i was moved not only because of animation was amazing but the story and characters were amazing Disney along with Pixar is famous of these things but this time fox studios & blue sky studios steals the show directed by Carlos Saldanha this motion picture of amazing birds will amaze you anytime.the plot:blue is a male macaw parrot from Rio DE Janeiro Brazil smuggled to USA a girl named Linda adapts him as he is growing up he is still unable to fly but soon blue;s life changes as he gets ready to make a trip to Brazil.the cast:everyone did a good job in voice acting i wont name any actors here it will take time.yes there are few annoying scenes in it but the flaws are overshadowed by great comedy specially the little bird and all the beautiful scenes of Brazil there is a sequel to this film called Rio 2 2014 do see that one too its the second best film in the series 10 years before this film came out the company Lu launched the biscuits named Rio in Pakistan when this film came up i jumped about the same name in excitement but they have promoted Rio 2 everywhere that is a good move.Overall Rio 2011 is a underrated film made with pure heart it is one of the best film release recently go watch it its not for kids only if your above 100 years old you will still love it my rating is 10/10:Recommended
Giving it a second chance, I really wanted to love this movie.From now on, I'm going to try a different format of reviewing. I'll see how it goes.Plot:It's a forced romance story. Haven't seen this a million times, right? Oh, and a cliché villain with no character is thrown in to give the movie drama.Characters:The main characters are really likable, especially Linda. Blu and Jewel's relationship shows a standard forced love story, but I suppose it works for the plot. Other than that, the rest of the characters are terrible. The villains are completely obvious and stereotypical. They have no unique personality... or anything. It's actually hard for me to describe how they acted. I even forgot their names.Visuals:The visuals are what make the movie. The beautiful scenery of Rio de Janeiro is what gives the movie it's core appeal. That's what my family was talking about when we left the theater. Just like how Disney's The Lion King was a break-through in hand-drawn animation, this film is how all animated CGI films should look. Simple as that.Enjoyment:It was really hard getting around the cringe-inducing dialogue and terrible secondary-characters, but if you can get past it, it is rather enjoyable. The side-characters are pretty much what really killed it for me. If they were different or not in the movie at all, this film would get another star rate from me.Rewatchability:This is one of those animated movies you see on Netflix and just skip past it to see what else is available. It's only good to see if you want to say you saw it. Just go to the real Rio de Janeiro to see the movie in 3-D.
