One Minute Movie Review: Rio
In the plethora of 3D animation movies, this has to be one of the sappiest, goofy, and predictable. The animation is rich and brilliant, but that is the only positive aspect of this feature. The acting is bland, the chemistry between characters is underwhelming, the romance boring, the musical score is cliché, and the comedic attempts try too hard and fall flat every time. The most compelling example of my criticism of this flick was the fact that my 6 year old, who begged me to rent it, was utterly bored all the way through. There are far better animation choices so don’t waste your time on this flop. 1 out of 5 Kernels, this is the cinematic equivalent of the bird flu.
