SATUR­DAY RIO

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Week In Movies -

★★

Flavour­some 3-D vi­su­als and a bland, 1-D sto­ry­line all but cancel one an­other out in the pass­able an­i­mated adventure Rio. Kids un­der 12 won’t mind watch­ing it, but will be hard-pushed to re­mem­ber much of it once the cred­its roll. Blu (voiced by Jesse Eisen­berg) is a nervy, nerdy North Amer­i­can, a pam­pered pet who can­not fly. Jewel (Anne Hathaway) is a swingin’, so­phis­ti­cated South Amer­i­can, a feath­ered flirt who can fly. The pair are brought to­gether in Brazil to go forth and pro­cre­ate to save their sub-species, only to be bird-napped at the height of Car­ni­vale time in a hy­per­colour­ful Rio.
