I really loved this film. It didn't do anything really new besides the interesting location which really made me want to go to Rio and the cute love story. Voice acting was noticeably superb and made the experience that much better.
It felt to me a little stereotyped but nonetheless, as a kids movie, it was a really cute movie.
Because Carlos Saldanha is brazilian, I was expecting a vision a little less caricated from Brazil. Being carioca (born in Rio) I couldn't help feeling a little disrespected. The least I was expecting was a strong body guard wearing a shiny golden costume underneath his uniform just waiting to samba. Everything is too much stereotyped and doesn't help to change the world's vision of Brazil where everything is football-samba-women.
Despite that, as a kid's movie, it's more adventurous and dramatic than comic.
The graphics and the modeling of Rio were fantastic. Don't think that's not true, our nature really is that way. Come see for yourself and get your own conclusions.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
