If you have been to Rio...
8 October 2011 | by flashdcashSee all my reviews

I enjoyed it a lot because I was moved and it captured some of the madness, the warmth, the dignity and of course the sexiness of Rio. The characters were well acted, the humour was effortlessly funny and there is a storyline. However, you have to to pay attention to follow the cuts between story lines, it's a one bottle job not two. There was no dark side in this film, it capitalises on the positive qualities of Rio - after all it is a comedy. Couldn't help feeling there is kind of lazy morality about showing gun toting teenagers as defenders of the peace - how do you know that? There is no mention of the police and their role. There is a lot of travelogue and middle aged angst, maybe that's partly why i enjoyed it. Be warned if you are younger and/or haven't been to Rio give it a miss. If you aren't - watch it then go to the Rio!
