Blu was the last of his species called Macaw. he was captured since young n domesticated in a small town called Minnesota. together with his loving owner, Linda, they lived a happy life opening a bookstore. a researcher arrived, having them followed him back to Rio de Janeiro, so Blu can breed with a female named Jewel. but before anything could happened, they were captured again by poachers n chained together. they escaped with the help of other birds, while learning from each other.
having 2 birds of the opposite personality placed together, we all knew where the story was leading. but it didn't make it any less enjoyable! the adventure was so unique it was easy to be absorbed into the film, or often overwhelmed by its beauty n details that flashes generously through the screen. humor for the film was straightforward, definitely the type that even kids find it amusing. after a few slightly disappointing films (Sucker Punch, Hop), Rio was finally one of the most entertaining animation currently airing!
