I just watch this movie 3 days ago while I was too sleepy but surprisingly I've finished watching the movie and it kept me entertained until the end.

Though I think the movie is rather short. It won't last for 2 hours. It's fun, did I already mention entertaining? Hell, yeah. This is a movie for the whole family so you can bring all your kids along to enjoy the fun with colorful Rio de Janeiro as the story's backdrop and floats, bold costumes for the parade set-up you'll never get bored.

Well, you can say that I am a softy I got teary-eyed twice, once when Blu was left on the ground while Jewel and her friends were all rejoicing up in the air for finally breaking free. And the other one is for you to find out I don't really like to be a spoiler so it's up to you to watch the movie and see if it has also the power to touch your heart.

Here's a little sneak peek:

This is my favorite quote from the movie:

Blu: You see, who needs flying?
Jewel: Birds! Birds need flying. Flying is... err... freedom, and, and not having to rely on anyone. Don't you want that? 
Blu: Hmm, I don't know. Sounds a little lonely. 

Hmmm, makes sense and now I'm thinking...

I rate this as 3 out of 5 stars. It was entertaining but the storyline seemed to be old. A bird that doesn't know how to fly then learned in the end after his great adventure. The story's setting which is in Rio is what makes this a little different from the rest and funny lines. The ending too was like a bit rush and I felt the movie could been better if only there's more volume added in the storyline like a little more twist and more conflicts. But it was a happy ending after all so still fun to watch.
