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.
