Rio Movie Synopsis & Plot

"Rio" is a 3-D animation feature from the makers of the "Ice Age" films. Set in the magnificent city of Rio de Janeiro and the lush rainforest of Brazil, the comedy-adventure centers on Blu, a rare macaw who thinks he is the last of his kind. When Blu discovers there's another — and that she's a she — he leaves the comforts of his cage in small town Minnesota and heads to Rio. But it's far from love at first sight between the domesticated and flight-challenged Blu and the fiercely independent, high-flying female, Jewel. Unexpectedly thrown together, they embark on an adventure of a lifetime, where they learn about friendship, love, courage, and being open to life's many wonders. "Rio" brings together a menagerie of vivid characters, a heart-warming story, colorful backdrops, energizing Latin and contemporary music, and family-friendly song and dance.

MOVIE REVIEW

The animated movie Rio comes to DVD and Blu-Ray this week. Starring the voice of Jessie Eisenberg (The Social Network) as a socially awkward and flightless parrot who finds himself on the run from exotic bird smugglers in Brazil, Rio will appeal to kids but offers nothing new among the barrage of CGI films released in recent years.
