Product Description

Two swindlers get their hands on a map to the fabled city of gold, El Dorado.

From Amazon.co.uk

In its third foray into animated features, The Road to El Dorado, Dreamworks came up with something unfortunate: the routine animated picture. Plagued with production problems (it was originally conceived as a mould-breaking 12-rated adventure), the likable film is a Hope/Crosby-style road picture about two scallywags who stumble upon the Latin American paradise of El Dorado, the mythical city with riches of gold. Kenneth Branagh and Kevin Kline are quite fun as Miguel and Tuilo, two Spanish con artists who are shipwrecked in the New World with a scene-stealing horse. The pair follow a map to the secret city where their loyalty will be tested: do they return home rich men or continue to live in this paradise? Of course there are some obstacles: a high priest (Armand Assante) is locked in a power struggle with the benevolent chief (Edward James Olmos) and the perfunctory girlfriend (Rosie Perez) puts the two friends at odds. Like too many of the animated features of its time, The Road to El Dorado impresses only on a visual level (it's drenched in gorgeous greens and golds). The story and Elton John's songs are quite forgettable; only Branagh and Kline's playful banter keeps the film alive. Slick and light, it's a fine 83-minute entertainment for ages 5 and up, including the non-discriminating adult. --Doug Thomas, Amazon.com

Please disregard the regrettably jaded and cynical Amazon review of thismovie! The Road to El Dorado is a delight from title to end-credits!Visually superb, the characters are dynamic and work together beautifully,with a line of witty banter second to none. Elton John's music iscertainly NOT "forgettable" (actually it took me a couple of weeks to stopwhistling the theme tune...) and the soundtrack CD is also a very goodbuy. The film is a good family view, and I mean a GOOD family view:children, adults, and even bored teenagers will enjoy this.

This is a fantastic movie! My 4 year old son has made me sit through it many times and I still enjoy watching it. The animation is superb, mixing cutting-edge CG 3D backdrops with stylishly drawn main characters. It's similar in technique to Tarzan, but arguably better done. The script is packed with great one-liners for the adult audience - "HOLY SHIP!" is yelled as a wayward boat heads towards Tulio and Miguel (try explaining the joke to a 4 year old!) The acting is first class, which is to be expected with actors of Ken Branagh and Kevin Kline's calibre. Even the sound track is excellent, with some great tracks from Elton John which really suit the movie (another similarity with Tarzan and its Phil Collins-penned songs).
Overall, this is a outstanding animation, certainly better than anything Disney has produced in recent years. I'd recommend it to any fans of the genre or anybody with kids.

"The road to El Dorado" is a really great film. It's just so funny! Kids will love it and it's great for adults too. The first half hour is a roller-coaster ride that will keep you laughing out loud. It follows how Tulio and Miguel come across a map to El Dorado, the city of gold, accidently end up as prisoners on a ship headed for the new world, are rescued by a hungry horse and land on the beaches of the new world.
When they get to the new world, the mood of the film changes. Up until now it was just funny, but now the funniness is coupled with absolutely beautiful animation. It really is breathtaking, especiallywhen they reach El Dorado itself.
The film is complemented and completed by the beautiful songs, by Elton John. These include "Without Question", "Friends Never Say Goodbye", "On the Trail We Blaze" and "Someday Out of the Blue". They are all great songs and they fit in perfectly with the film.
Altogether this is a really freat film. Ken Branagh and Kevin Kline do a great job as the voices of Miguel and Tulio, the animation and music are great and the script is hilarious. What a great combination!

Although this movie did not make a big impact at cinemas,that does not mean to say this is bad,nothing could be further from the truth.The animation is stunning and the characters will have the kids and adults in stitches.This is definitely up to the standards of Disney and the kids will be watching it for a long time yet.There may be some innuendo you may want to watch first but it is nothing bad and they will certainly here worse on tv.DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR AND BUY THIS.RECOMMENDED

I love this film and would recommend it to everyone - all ages will find it great, the film is a real feel good movie, i have to admit i've watched it over and over because every time it is still just as funny as the last time! the animation is great although i have to agree with another reviewer, the songs accompanying the film are not great - some orchestral selections work well, however elton john has not done the film justice, as with a great soundtrack the film would be a stomper, as can be seen in such disney classics as aladdin & jungle book. Apart from the lack of memorable songs, its a wonderful film, so buy it and enjoy, you won't be disappointed!!

I am so glad to find that other people love this as much as I do. Was buying it for my 3 year old godson because my boys (and I) loved it so much and reading these reviews brought back memories of my sons dancing round the living room and making me replay the songs over and over again, and of me spluttering tea with laughter at some of the jokes. I loved all the Hope and Crosby Road to ... films and wished that Branagh and Kline would do some more animation versions or remake them as they had a great chemistry. In my view an absolute classic family film.

Notwithstanding the five stars, I concede the reviewer Doug Thomas that some things are mediocre in this movie: the screenplay and the songs of Elton John. He did great songs, but he had had his best years - long ago. He is just reproducing and replicating his old tunes and musical arrangements. That is what I call routine.
However, but it is not really important, because of the wonderful created characters Miguel and Tuilo and their perfect selected voices of Kenneth Branagh and Kevin Kline. Moreover the nice setting of the jungle and the cities, the Maya as wll as the Spanish. Not to forget once again („Moses") the impressive animation of the water.
The movie is beautiful and really great fun. And there is no reason to care about the screenplay and the songs. They don't matter, anyway. Do yourself a favour and watch that.
