Rio is one of those animated movies that didn't instantly pop out to me as one of those I'd enjoy watching. It was released in 2011 and I ended up watching the film in 2015. I am the type that could enjoy animated movies as long as they are well done. Character development and story are important to me no matter what and when it comes to animated movies the quality of the animation plays a role in the level of my enjoyment as well.
I've got to say that Rio's animation is on point. I cannot complain about it. It's all pretty smooth and doesn't look cheap at all. The plot of the movie overall was decent and there were enough laughs in it for me to really enjoy myself while watching it. I didn't feel bored with it.
When watching an animated movie one of the games I like to play is guess who's voices are in the movie. I was delighted to find a few actors that I actually like lending their voice to the characters. I feel like Jesse Eisenberg's voice is just kind of weird for an animated movie, it didn't really make the character anymore likable. Sure he sounded neurotic and that's what the character embodies but Eisenberg wouldn't had been my choice voice, every other voice was well done though. I was excited to hear Tracy morgan's voice in this but the amount of drool his character gave off was disgusting and distracting from anything the character did I really couldn't understand why he needed to drool so much.
While it was a pretty good movie and I did enjoy, To me the rewatch factor is pretty low. I'd watch it if it was on TV and i was really bored but i would not make the conscious decision to go and put RIO on. If you've been holding off watching it and enjoy these types of animated movies then there's no doubt you'd enjoy it. In end Rio proved it wasn't anything to rush to watch however it was pleasant to sit through and was pretty enjoyable overall.
