Engaging children's entertainment.

Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail, 2002-03-22

 

Bright and zesty.

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, 2000-01-01

 

The Road to El Dorado is well worth traveling with the kids, though most adults will find it a somewhat less rewarding trip than DreamWorks' last, the The Prince of Egypt.

Lou Lumenick, New York Post, 2000-01-01

 

Though its tale of gold is not untarnished, The Road to El Dorado hits the buddy-movie mark.

Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle, 2000-01-01

 

This movie is fun to watch in ways that most recent cartoons aren't.

Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune, 2000-01-01

 

[Kline's and Branagh's] shared timing is so good it whets the appetite for further adventures.

Robert Horton, Film.com, 2000-01-01

 

El Dorado is a cut above most action-adventure animated movies because of the integration of Kline and Branagh's comedic talents with their cartoon selves.

John Anderson, Newsday, 2000-01-01

 

The animation is uninspiring and brings nothing new to the table of animation magic.

Paul Clinton (CNN.com), CNN.com, 2000-01-01

 

This is one Road whose gold apparently got paved over.

Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today, 2000-01-01

 

[Katzenberg] has plainly and wholly succumbed to the familiarity of his former employer's trademark formula.

Cody Clark, Mr. Showbiz, 2000-01-01

 

This trip down The Road to El Dorado proceeds under the speed limit all the way.

Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, 2000-01-01

 

For a movie about 'discovering' the New World, The Road to El Dorado covers a lot of familiar territory.

Sean Means, Film.com, 2000-01-01

 

Timid and flat.

Susan Stark, Detroit News, 2000-01-01

 

The Road to El Dorado is a bit too standard-issue to climb out from under its nouveau Disney house style look and supply much in the way of innovative glitter.

Jay Carr, Boston Globe, 2000-01-01

 

Yes, it has Elton John and Tim Rice songs, but The Lion King this ain't.

Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times, 2000-01-01

 

It's not cute enough for kids, not clever enough for adults. It's gorgeous but curiously dull.

Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 2000-01-01

 

The animation is handsome but hardly stirring.

Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle, 2000-01-01

 

Little more than a sanitized blend of nonsense and adventure and just a teeny bit of romance, interspersed with the occasional pop song.

Stephen Holden, New York Times, 2000-01-01

 

It does not represent engaging entertainment for parents as well as their children.

James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 2000-01-01
