Rio 2 Reviews

The derivative Rio 2 is a riot of color with groovy music, but not a single original moment to its name.

Despite the attempts at broadening the secondary ideological themes, this is another familiar father-in-crisis tale, dotted with musical interludes for Chenoweth and Clement, and dressed in brighter plumage.

Does this slick Blue Sky sequel cut the animated feature mustard in a post LEGO Movie world? No, it really doesn't.

The fun and entertainment of the original is nowhere to be found, replaced instead with a rushed and overstuffed plot which leads to a film that tries to reach out in so many directions that it ends up getting nowhere.

The animation is fine, but Rio 2 is bland, not very funny, and even poorly plotted.

Given the strikingly colourful, vibrant aesthetic, and the South American flavour that exists, with a carnival spirit prevalent, sadly the animation is somewhat underwhelming.

Rio 2 feels like biting down on a golf-ball-size bolus of Skittles while a youth counselor sitting backward in a chair fist-bumps you and shouts, "The environment is cool, brah!"

Roaring new songs are countered by apparent missed opportunities. Even the message is bunk.

All in all, though, the movie feels at once too busy and too derivative. That's no easy feat, but it's also one sequel-makers probably shouldn't aspire to.

I'm sorry. I just found the whole thing tedious with a capital "T." This is an overstuffed, deeply padded film that sorely lacks drive and urgency. (Full Content Review for Parents also Available)

The net effect is a shapeless would-be diversion in which things just happen independently, a string of effects missing any cause.

More characters, more actors, more songs. More pandering, fewer laughs.

Rio 2 feels less like a new adventure and a lot like an excuse to do more of the same.

The musical moments, on the whole, stand out as the highlights of the film; Rio 2 becomes watchable when the flat characters shut up and sing.

The movie's an acceptable, if tiring, baby sitter.

Rio had at least some life to it; Rio 2 feels like hollow, dusty dead-in-the-eyes taxidermy in the name of pure profit.

NOW Toronto

Presents a relentless sweep of bright colours impeccably choreographed to samba, R&B and show tunes. Amidst all the revelry, the busy plot and characters garner as much attention as the wheels on a carnival truck.

Mostly uninspired and rarely even remotely entertaining, you'd be better off sticking with the original Rio... and by that, we mean the one in Brazil.

Comic Book Resources

A shamelessly uninspired follow-up, Rio 2 is just plain tedious - a boring, overly familiar pastiche of sitcom problems, acted out by annoying animals, and scored with music that should make it all feel invigorating, not infuriating.

Wonderfully animated and well-voiced, "Rio 2" is nevertheless too much. Too much plot, too many issues, too many characters.
