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

5.0 out of 5 stars Joyful road movie . . . with wings 27 Sep 2011
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hmmmmm! How d'ya get it to play 3d? 10 Nov 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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*

4.0 out of 5 stars Faulty Disc, Brilliant Film 25 Oct 2011
By Puk
Format:Blu-ray
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Wow 31 Dec 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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

5.0 out of 5 stars So brilliant that you will be dazzled 7 May 2011
Format:DVD
Brilliant with color, movement, action, drama, even some horror and a lot of fun, parades, joy, ecstasy, running away and running after, and even a lot of flying up and down especially for the poor Blue who does not know how to fly, which is a shame for a parrot.

A little of depth about these exotic birds that are endangered by the smugglers who capture them away to sell them in the big cities of the developed countries, here the USA, and even Minnesota. But no real police work against the smugglers, just a union of the victims and bird lovers to just prevent them from succeeding, in other words to make them fail.

The most astonishing side of the film is the luminous vision of Rio de Janeiro and its carnival. If you have never been there go next week and spend some time on the beaches and try to go to the top of the big sugarloaf mountains and meet the Christ standing at the top of the tallest of them. That's a perfect strategy for an emergent country today that has been the target of the latest but not last crisis and that has been able to get out of it even stronger than before. Conquer the world not only with money, certainly not with weapons and bombs, but with culture. That's how the Americans did it after World War II.

That's a lesson to us, in the developed countries too. We take for granted that our languages and our cultures are dominant, and they are not. In a few years a language emerges as more important than ours and an emerging culture becomes a top attraction and agent at the global level.
