Storyline

In Rio de Janeiro, baby macaw, Blu, is captured by dealers and smuggled to the USA. While driving through Moose Lake, Minnesota, the truck that is transporting Blu accidentally drops Blu's box on the road. A girl, Linda, finds the bird and raises him with love. Fifteen years later, Blu is a domesticated and intelligent bird that does not fly and lives a comfortable life with bookshop owner Linda. Out of the blue, clumsy Brazilian ornithologist, Tulio, visits Linda and explains that Blu is the last male of his species, and he has a female called Jewel in Rio de Janeiro. He invites Linda to bring Blu to Rio so that he and Jewel can save their species. Linda travels with Blu and Tulio to Rio de Janeiro and they leave Blu and Jewel in a large cage in the institute where Tulio works. While they are having dinner, smugglers break into the institute and steal Blu and Jewel to sell them. Linda and Tulio look everywhere for Blu, who is chained to Jewel and hidden in a slum. Meanwhile, Jewel ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

During production, Jesse Eisenberg was still working on The Social Network (2010). To compensate for time, he agreed to provide Blu's dialogue on weekends, admitting that it diverted him away from the mindset of his nearly-joyless Social Network character. See more »

Goofs

Sulphur crested cockatoos are native only to Australia an neighboring islands, and there is no similar South American species. However Nigel is a house pet and it is plausible that the smugglers have operated in other continents. See more »

Quotes

Jewel: No, I am definitely not okay!
[she starts throwing herself at the cage bars]
Blu: Woah, woah, woah! Wait, wait! What are you doing?
Jewel: Getting out of here! Are you going to help me or what?
Blu: A-Actually all the survival guides say to sit and wait. And... and help will come.
Jewel: No one is coming!
[she throws herself more violently at the cage]
Blu: Woah!
Jewel: We're on our own and if we just sit here, we're going to die!

Watch out for Colours, Music& Samba.
9 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

Why to watch: Watch out for Colours, Music& Samba.It's all about Rio, Brazil. Its really awesome. Importantly, animated movie with so much of colours & music, (though it-colour part was there in UP) but in Rio it feels like you are there in the Natural Beauty.

-Negative points: 1. Predictable story or rather regular story. 2. Not so humorous.

Screen Play: Movie surely doesn't make you bore, story goes smoothly.

For whom: Family & romantic people !!!

3D Effects: Impressive.Actually, Same as Megamind & other animated movies, but so much of colours makes it more impressive

Ratings: 7.5/10

Personal opinion:Must watch :8/10
