Film: Rio

No you haven't stumbled upon the wrong blog, this really is a review for the kids film about the talking blue bird.

Not the type of film that you usually see here but it marks a very special occassion, my 3 year old daughter's first trip to the cinema.

Blu is a domesticated Macaw who is tracked down by a conservationist who asks his owner, Linda, if he can take the bird to Rio to mate with the last remaining female of the species.

Soon after they arrive Blu finds himself on a wild adventure with Jewel (the female bird) that will see him encounter all manner of events that he has never before had to deal with.

Can a domesticated pet bird that can't fly rise to the challenge? You bet he can.

This is great fun and the animation is stunning, I didn't see it in 3d and it was still pretty spectacular.

The fact that my daughter sat through the entire film speaks volumes.

Great family entertainment.
