"He's going to the wildest, most magical place on earth ... home"



Film Synopsis:

Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) is a rare domesticated macaw who believes he's the last of his kind. But when his owner learns about Jewel (Hathaway), Blu's female counterpart in Rio de Janeiro, they set out on the adventure of a lifetime. Even though he's never learned to fly, Blu befriends a group of wise-cracking, smooth-talking city birds who help him find the courage to spread his wings and follow his destiny.






My Take:

Stolen from the wild by smugglers as a young bird, Blu, a rare Spix Macaw, is thousands of miles away from his homeland of Brazil, living happily in Moose Lake Minnesota as a domesticated companion. When his owner Linda discovers that he is the last male of his kind, they head south to Rio de Janeiro to meet the only other female. But it's far from love at first sight between the socially-awkward, flight-challenged Blu and the fiercely independent, high-flying female Spix Macaw, Jewel. Shortly after Blu's arrival, the two rare birds are captured by greedy animal smugglers and find themselves lost in the Brazilian rainforest. Unexpectedly thrown together, they embark on a hilarious and clumsy adventure where they learn about friendship, love, courage and spreading one's wings to fly.

Rio is exactly what you might expect in that its story about being taken out of one's element, adjusting to life on the outside and suddenly being thrust back (give or take) sounds all too familiar. That's okay because the enjoyment found in films like this isn't contained in the formula but in the execution. In other words, likeable characters, a charming story, and visually engaging imagery that draws the audience in. In this case all three are represented and make for a rewarding animated film that proves lots of fun for kids and parents alike. The predictable elements are enriched by well crafted/witty dialogue, entertaining musical set pieces featuring Samba style rhythms, and a cache of secondary characters that prove to be more than window dressing. The mix of light drama, mild suspense, and breezy adventure appropriately coincide with the film's thematic tone as its heartwarming aspects provide the motivation for us to root for Blu. I tend to enjoy feel good movies like this and Rio, paint by the numbers or not, had me right from the start. The animation is top notch and the actors that lend their vocal talents to the film bring the characters to life with spirit and enthusiasm. Rio is fairly typical but makes for a charming and delightfully fun animated film that can be enjoyed by the whole family.


Parental Guide:

This film is appropriate for all audiences.

Rio comes to Blu-ray Disc from Fox featuring 1080p AVC encoded video that has an average bitrate of 20 Mbps and lossless DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound that has an average bitrate of 3.8 Mbps.

This is a pristine and reference quality high definition presentation from Fox. The video quality is superlative in its depiction of the film's animated subjects. Detail and definition is impeccably rendered as images have a luminous and sparkling clarity that is appreciably dimensional. Fine degrees of subtle delineation and texture are clearly discernible. Colors are richly saturated, vibrant and beautifully rendered. The switch of the relaxed color scheme of Moose Lake to the lush, warm and gradationally satisfying Rio, Brazil makes for a stimulating visual contrast. Primary colors are particularly vivid and exhibit visibly delineated stages that bring out subtle degrees of separation. Contrast is spot on, blacks are rich with deep highlights and grays exhibit multi-layered stages that enhance dimension.

The DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack makes for a great home theater experience. This is a fairly active sound design that truly benefits from the higher resolution that lossless audio offers. Dialogue is crystalline with appreciable tonal inflection and non sibilant vocal character. Dynamics are top notch as the elements contained within the soundtrack have definitive energy and potent impact. The music plays an integral role in this presentation and the entire surround platform is used to present the marvelous musical set pieces. The auditory is rich in clarity and detail which allows the subtle environmental sounds in the recording to easily be heard as the mix creates a stable and immersive surround sound experience that achieves excellent balance. Low frequency detail is authoritative and tight as it engages the room with palpable bass that augments the track's recorded elements. This isn't an aggressive surround sound mix but it is an articulate one that is lots of fun and sounds great.



Bonus Features:


  • (HD) Deleted scene

  • Explore the world of Rio - Interactive tour/feature

  • (HD) Saving the species: One voice at a time - 24 minute featurette on the voice cast

  • (HD) The making of Hot Wings - 8 minute featurette with Jamie Foxx and Will i Am

  • (HD) Boom-Boom Tish-Tish: The sounds of Rio - 13 minute featurette on the film's music

  • (HD) The real Rio - 9 minute featurette on Rio, Brazil

  • Carnival Dance-O-Rama

  • (HD) Welcome to Rio music video - Featuring vocals by Jessie Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway

  • (HD) Telling the world music video by Taio Cruz

  • (HD) Rio de JAM-eiro Jukebox

  • Postcards from Rio - Make your own!

  • (HD) Angry Birds Rio (3 segments) - Trailer, Nigel Mash up, and Instructional/Clue video

  • BD-Live: Live Extras

  • Pocket BLU - with Wi-Fi download option (Apple products)

  • Bonus DVD of Rio

  • Digital Copy Bonus Disc


Final Thoughts:

Rio comes from the creative minds behind Ice age and is a spirited and well crafted animated film that may not break new ground but still makes for delightfully fun family entertainment. Its presentation on Blu-ray Disc doesn't disappoint and features reference quality video and superb lossless surround sound. The bonus supplements include a bonus DVD and Digital Copy of the film plus a host of fan friendly extras, including cast/crew interviews, interactive features, a special offer for Angry Birds enthusiasts. This strong offering from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment is worthy of your buying dollars so if you're inclined feel free to purchase with confidence.

I've received several emails from Amazon about my pre ordered on this movie, something about being delayed? Skimmed through it, as I know Amazon is great at delivering my stuff no matter what's the case.

Anyway great to hear to you like it, as it's a blind buy for me and wasn't really expecting much of plot, story, but rather lots of eye candy.

Thanks for the great review as always.

Thanks, Ralph. Looks like you enjoyed the film. I'm currently in the process of resisting a blind buy or this one, but I'll fail. I always do.

Chances are very good that I was drinking when I posted the above.

Great review and two reasons for me to buy it. Haven't seen this movie and from watching the trailer the characters and settings looks pretty colorful so that should definitely pop out.

Hi all,

I was on the 3D forum and there was some talk that Best Buy had a 3D exclusive version on sale. I am in Australia so this is not such an issue as we don't have a BB over here but does anyone know if a 3D version will be released at some point? If so, may be best to wait.
Thanks
Greg

I was forced to watch this first in 2D since the kids don't like the glasses but then I watched it again in 3D. Much more fun the 2nd time around, especially the flight scenes.

The drooling dog was a little too much, but overall a fun 3D animation.

HI Ralph, thanks for the review!

I am just a bit disappointed the film didn't get perfect scores for sound and video. I haven't seen it, so it is not a critique on your review, I just expect all the new animated films to be pristine. NO excuse for less than perfect in my opinion. Oh well, it doesn't come out here until October, but I may rent it first.

Great reviewers do not give perfect score unless it is a perfect movie and there is no such thing in life (well if there is then I have not yet seen it myself).

Thanks Ralph! Can't wait to see it.

@audiopho- If I am not mistaken Toy Story (one or all) got a perfect score from Ralph, among a few others. Though you are right, he is stingy with it (as he should be)

I'm getting short freezes in the video with my PS3 slim. Anybody else have issues? Also, before anyone asks, my PS3 is only a few months old and sitting in the open in an air conditioned room.

Watched it today on a Sony BDP-S570 and got short stuttering/freezes in several places as well, throughout the whole movie. I probably noticed it 6-8 times.

Just watched this last night, pretty much agree with the assessment as usual, Ralph!

Video was near perfect aside from a few negligible moments of banding and some aliasing on a few occasions. Audio was pretty tight all around aside from the LFE channel. I found this was a music driven mix and it excelled at that.

Why let facts or common sense get in the way of your opinions.

Quick shot of my gear/theater.

I was having the same freezing problems watching the Rio BR disk on my slimline PS3 with the latest updates and I called Fox to report this problem and needless to say that they were useless in resolving this issue by referring me back to Sony to address the problem. Until recently when other people began reporting this same freezing problem to Fox, Fox finally provided this possible solution to disable internet and to delete the BD Data Utility Folder found in the Video menu option (looks like a film strip icon) on the PS3.

I just deleted the BD Data Utility folder and the darn Rio disk now plays just fine on the PS3. I hope this works for you other PS3 folks.
