Rio Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Rio wings onto Blu-ray with an absolutely gorgeous looking AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.40:1. As trite and predictable as some elements of the film undoubtedly are, from a visual standpoint this is state of the art CGI and the Blu-ray reproduces in often stunning grandeur the incredible palette the many artists working on the film brought to the table. From the first quasi-Busby Berkeley dance sequence, we're confronted with all sorts of outlandish bird creatures, many in stupendously bright and beautifully saturated color. Deep blood reds and unbelievably gorgeous cerulean blues fill the frame, with teals, aquamarines and turquoises also resplendent. Fine detail is exceptional, especially with regard to the rendering of the feathers, which flutter seemingly individually in the virtual breeze. Actually by comparison the human characters come off as a bit two dimensional (no pun intended, considering this film's 3D theatrical presentation). But it's the birdlife here that is the main calling card, as well as the beautifully rendered Rio backgrounds, and those pop with abundant vibrancy that should delight most any videophile.


Rio Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Rio, as might be inferred by my opening paragraph in the main body of the film above, depends more than is typically the case on its soundtrack to create its exotic ambience, and the good news is the lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track offered on this Blu is about as good as it gets. From the first moment of the film, when light bird calls dot the surrounds with various chirps and caws and then dissolve into a pulsating Samba rhythm, we know we're going to be literally immersed in a sonic wonderland, and that's certainly the case for the next hour and a half. The hauntingly propulsive rhythms of Carnaval fill the soundfield here with a battery of percussion instruments and one lovely source cue after another spills through the surrounds with seductive allure. Sergio contributes several songs with his group, but the soundtrack is filled to brim with many collaborators who give the musical side of things a lot of variety. Actually by comparison some of the character songs shoehorned into the production, notably one for chief villain Nigel, are pretty lame when stacked up against the native Brazilian fare. Voicework is also very well handled, with Hathaway once again proving what an appealing audio heroine she can be. Eisenberg is a little too laid back for my personal taste, but that works well within the nerdish confines of Blu's personality. It's the supporting cast which really shines vocally here, and they all sound magnificent on this track. Sound effects and music are perfectly positioned around the surrounds, and fidelity and dynamic range are spot on.
