The Road to El Dorado

The Road to El Dorado (2000)

Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy

I remember watching this as a child and hoped that when I re-watched it years later, it would still be good. Luckily, it is πŸ˜€ . The story is well crafted, entertaining, funny and very good. I was hooked from start to finish and loved that the flow of the movie didn’t get dull. The main two characters of Miguel Β (Kenneth Branagh) and Tulio (Kevin Kline) were flawed but in a good way. I liked the fact they were selfish, greedy, immature as it made them seem more human (as animations go πŸ˜› ). The reason for the characters to leave is valid, the plot moved along steadily keeping you entertained throughout and the villain is impressive. Seriously, Tzekel-Kan (Armand Assante) is quite the baddy and when he uses his magic (and in the big battle scene) that was quite a good sequence! The dialogue is witty and very funny πŸ™‚ . One of my favourite scenes was when the two main characters have to prove they are gods (with the volcano scene πŸ˜› ). I liked the relationship between Tulio and Chel (Rosie Perez) which I actually believed and I also loved it when the boys clashed! It was gripping, realistic (as much as animation can) and entertaining. I loved the ending and the songs (from the great Elton John) were amazing πŸ˜€ ! Also what is great about this film is the quality is still very good (no bad CGI here πŸ˜› ). A great movie from DreamWorks that is worth a watch if you haven’t seen it yet (or a re-watch if you have πŸ˜› ). Enjoy πŸ˜€

I give this film 5 Stars out of 5!

Look! El Dorado! The city of gold!
