Movie Review-Rio



Director-Carlos Saldanha

Voice Actors-Jesse Eisenberg, Leslie Mann, Anne Hathaway, George Lopez, Jermaine Clement




"Rio" is a very entertaining movie. It is about a macaw bird named Blu (voice of Jesse Eisenberg) who has been the pet of a woman named Linda (Leslie Mann) his entire life. Blu has been completely domesticated and has never learned how to fly. When Linda learns that Blu is one of the last birds of his kind, he is taken back to his natural habitat in Brazil. There he meets other birds, Jewel (voice of Anne Hathaway), another macaw, and Rafael (voice of George Lopez), a toucan. As Blu is making friends with the other birds, they find themselves in danger from smugglers, led by an evil cockatoo named Nigel (voice of Jermaine Clement). This movie has an engaging story and excellent voice acting by Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, and especially by Jermaine Clement, who voices one of the most memorable villains in a animinated movie since "The Lion King". I really recommend watching "Rio".
