Rio is simple, family fun!


I was a bit underwhelmed with Rio‘s preview trailers–none of them enticed me to want to see this movie–they were vague and well…not funny.  But I have to say I am glad I went to see it! It was a cute, family friendly story. 

The animation was well done with beautiful vistas, the music was catchy and fun (except for one truly horrible rap attempt by an evil Cockatoo)–and the talented voice cast helped raise the entertainment factor.  Yet, Rio is solely a kids movie–with plenty of sight gags and sweet moments, but not enough heart to rank it among the elite animation greats. 

You will not regret your time spent in Rio, but you will not walk away with anything to special to treasure–except maybe for some samba beats!

Who is nediunedited? A lover of cinema since the age of seven! All kinds–all genres. Films (TV and Books, too) have shaped my life–they were my escape, my inspiration and even my first role models. I do not rate my films in the traditional sense (no stars, grades, etc.)–instead I give you my opinion and my take on it–I do not give traditional plot summaries either, because I want you to go in clear–ready for your own experience. There is nothing better than discovering a fine film, without any other influence. (Personally, when I want to really see something I practice media shut out–I refuse to watch too many trailers, viral promos, reviews, etc–I have been known to cover my eyes and ears in the theater during trailers–LALALALA!) That’s me–hope you come by and visit! I will definitely make the rounds and find some of you out there, too.
