This film is about a little blue macaw named Blue (very creative) that is kidnapped by bird traffickers before he ever learns how to fly. He ends up in Minnesota raised by a very doting human. When a bird expert shows up claiming that he is the last male blue macaw in the world they're all off to Rio de Janeiro to save the species. After they get to Brazil those pesky bird traffickers (which apparently abound in Brazil) get the bird again, and his new female friend. They escape, run into a bunch of colorful animals, and learn to like each other. All the while they are being pursued by a hilarious evil cockatoo. He is by far the best character in this film. When he gets to sing his villain song it is the highlight of the movie. What does it say about a film when my favorite character is the bad guy? There are a couple moments of laughter, but it is not as good as most of the other computer animated films that have come out recently.
I don't know whether to rate it worth seeing or not. It was really just okay. I'm not sorry I watched it, but I probably won't watch it again.July 10th, 2012 · Details1 Thank ·
I was a little disappointed in this movie. It seemed as though it was missing a little depth to the storyline. Maybe I've just seen to many of these types of movies and they are too predictable.September 19th, 2011 · Details1 Thank ·
This movie was OK, but a bit too formulaic for me to stay interested. A lot of the jokes fell flat. It was beautifully animated and art directed. My six-year-old seemed to like it OK, but hasn't mentioned it since we watched.September 13th, 2012 · Details
I spent some time living in Brazil so I loved this movie. It does a great job at portraying many things that are significant to Brazilian culture. The animations were fun but the movie is predictable.
I think it's worth it to see it multiple times.July 26th, 2012 · Details
Fun for the whole family. Cute show.August 27th, 2011 · Details
It was better than I expected it to be. I'm glad I didn't pay full price to see it though. I could have waited for it on DVD.July 26th, 2011 · Details
Dialog contained a couple of innocuous words that verged on the vulgar or disrespectful. In the "Carnival" scenes, the human characters changed into revealing costumes, which some parents may find objectionable.April 28th, 2011 · Details
Animation good and fun story.April 21st, 2011 · Details
This movie is full of color and fun! It has a nice message and I think they did a good job on portraying Brazilian culture. Of course they did tone down a lot of more things that happen during "carnaval" that could raise it up to a PG-13. I liked how they focused on wildlife and the music to make it more family friendly. I loved the music, I wanted to get up and dance while watching it. I loved it on 3D.April 18th, 2011 · Details
