Product Description

From the creators of Ice Age, Rio is comedic adventure that tells the story of Blu (voiced by The Social Network's Jesse Eisenberg), a likeable “nerdy” bird who can’t fly who embarks upon a wild adventure in one of the most exotic and magical places on earth where he makes incredible friends, discovers his inner hero and finds that he has what it takes to soar.

Special Features:
  • Featurettes including--Blu Shows the Way, Saving the Species, One Voice at a Time, Boom Boom Tish Tish: The Sounds of Rio, The Making of Hot Wings, The Real Rio, Explore the World of Rio, Carnival Dance-O-Rama and Rio de Jam-eiro Jukebox

From Amazon.co.uk

A classic tale of self-discovery, romance, and adventure, Rio is the story of Blu, a flightless macaw who was taken from the forests of Rio de Janeiro as a young bird and raised by a kind girl in a small Minnesota town. When an ornithologist comes to town and informs Blu's now-grown owner Linda that Blu is the last male of his species, Blu and Linda return to Rio so that Blu can mate with a feisty female named Jewel. Thus begins an adventure in which Blu encounters everything from the complexities of courtship and love, to thugs involved in an exotic animal theft ring, strange new friendships--including one with an overly friendly slobbering bulldog--and a crazy ride through a carnival parade. Blu and Linda both mature as a result of their journey in Rio, and love ensures that life will never be quite the same for either ever again. The animation in Rio is quite impressive, the characters are endearing, the Brazilian music is very appealing, and the star-studded voice cast includes Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Will.i.am, Wanda Sykes, Jane Lynch, George Lopez and Jamie Foxx. While the story doesn't really offer anything new--instead playing much like a rehashing of some of the major plot points from movies like Madagascar, Finding Nemo and Babe--that doesn't mean the film isn't perfectly entertaining for both kids and adults. (Ages 6 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

WORD OF CAUTION. Having received my Rio blu-ray this morning I played it straight away on my PS3 and the picture kept freezing. Having cleaned the disc several times the problem persisted, and after researching on the internet, the same problem occurred in America. The fault is with the movie transfer onto the disc causing problems with playback occasionally.
Problems aside, this is the best animated film not to come out of Disney/Pixar since Shrek 2. Fun for all ages, the picture is perfect and the sound is amazing, well worth a purchase. Hopefully Fox will fix the problem with the discs and make this a 5 star item, but with the playback problems 1 star is taken away

I was expecting nothing when i saw this and was swept away right from the opening scene. Colourful and happy, full of cool latin music, a good sense of humour and loads of heart. The plight of a rare blue macaw becomes an adventure full of exciting scenes, well crafted animation full of sweeping shots in great looking locations. This is an all rounder, an exotic ride.

Rio has some quality characters, and plenty of quirky, unexpected moments, tons of fun and the right touch of romance. It's satisfying for adults and kids alike. Feels much fuller and more engaging than the Ice Age films.

It's combination of colour, music and a vibrant South America reminds me of old Disney classics (such as Three Caballeros) but it's well balanced with modern humour and pace.

There's been some fine animated/kids films this year - Legend of the guardians (beautiful detail), Narnia 3 voyage of the dawntreader (an underrated and gorgeous looking, old fashioned adventure) but fresh out of the clear blue skies comes this little gem.

For a family film, after the sunday dinner etc - it doesn't get much better than this. Highly recommended.

Wow!

Amazing! I saw this film in the cinema in 3D and I was amazed by it so I got it on dvd (also because my sister wanted to see it because she hadn't seen it before) I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was on the big screen but I was wrong. Without the 3D glasses (that darken the screen slightly) you are able to appreciate the wonderful colours and animation properly. It is magnificent!
The music that has been chosen is also outstanding and really gets you in to the carnival spirit - there were a few times both at home and at the cinema when I wanted to get up and dance! The storyline is great and teaches you to believe in yourself which I think is a great message for children.

This film is highly recommended and is one of the best animations I have seen - You won't be disappointed!

Now off to carnival! :D

Saw this in 3d at the cinema some months ago. Loved it so much that I had to get the 3d blu-ray. Watched it first in 2d as there were not enough 3d glasses to go round. Then tried the 3d version later on. Couldn't see much difference from the 2d version!
PROBLEM! The film refused to play 3d saying that it was not linked to a 3d display. I checked all connections and tried again. Fearing the worst that the (Sony) tv or equipment had developed a fault, I tried another 3d film and everything was working perfectly. Tried the "Rio 3d" again but problem still there. Never one to quit easily, I played around with it and found that if I ignored the film start button but clicked on "scene 1"selection instead, the 3d film would start from the beginning in 3d. So basically it does work in 3d, just not in the way I expected it to.
THE FILM......It's a cracking film with excellent graphics, great music and atmosphere although I find that 3d is best suited to slow moving subjects. My own tv has a 200hz refresh rate but that doesn't seem to improve the smoothness of the film by much.
The content, I award 5*
Ease of playing 2*
3d effects, I award 4*
Amazon service 5* (of course)
Overall......4*

Format: DVD
The color animation was spectacular. A movie that should be seen in 3-D. The plot and dialouge are slightly less than colorful. It Is not one of those movies designed to keep parents overly entertained. There are a few things kids won't get, like the Carmen Miranda hat on the bull dog. The movie is about poachers, breeding almost extinct birds, and the question of animal captivity. Blu, the last blue Macaw is happy in captivity and can't fly. Jewel, his would-be mate, hates captivity and loves to fly. Animated girls in bikinis, booty shaking, and Anne Hathaway as the naked Jewel bird (She just can't keep her clothes on anymore, even in an animated film.)

My 9 year old grand niece loves this movie and has seen it about 3 times.
