Rio (2011)

I confess my idea was not to post here this picture, but a picture of Blu, the bird, the main character on Rio. But after seeing this (and other similar) image I couldn’t resist to show you the nice Portuguese cobblestone. Isn’t is nice? Ever in 3D animation? I love it.

Anyway, back to Rio (2011), the movie story is the standard for an animation family movie, nothing big there. But there are some jokes (plenty of jokes) that make it fun to watch. An then, there is the detail in the animation, the detail in the scenarios (just like in the picture above) and the mimed reality. You know, the view of Rio de Janeiro from the top of the Cristo Rei is just like the one in the movie. Instead of just inventing a new reality, the producers choose to make it seem really like Rio. That makes the picture yet more interesting, and it is (I know it is) a challenge for animation artists.

Voting 8 in 10 @ IMDB. Would vote 9 in case of a really new story…
