A smart spectacle that moves like a mini-musical, the 3-D animated Rio 2 is also a superior sequel.

Rio 2 may not bring a lot of originality to the screen, but it's a simple entertaining alternative to the movies the kids have already seen, and that might be just enough to turn a profit.

Colourful and well-paced except for a cloyingly sweet song or two, the kids will enjoy this one.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

A lot of jumping between subplots, combined with the familiar approach, means Rio 2 fails to reach the great heights of the original.

Director Carlos Saldanha's love for his native Rio shines through, but that's not quite enough to save the messy, sprawling story.

Thoroughly mediocre.

Not surprisingly, what was a colorful, featherweight lark the first time around sags on re-entry due to sloppy familial baggage.

If Rio showed that 20th Century Fox Animation had finally moved into Disney's neighborhood, with Rio 2 they've taken off their shoes and propped their feet up on the coffee table.

The plot struggles to take wing at first, but Eisenberg is very funny as the fretful, accident-prone Blu.

I'm endlessly frustrated at not being able to have entertainment without a side of political and social preaching. Still, Rio 2 is a cute enough movie.

Rio 2 is fine for what it is, but it's yet another film filling the market with the same kind of movie.

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.

In general, Rio 2 feels less inspired and more forced than its predecessor.

There are moments, mainly from the menagerie of menacers, but, flying mostly on feather-light plots, this avian animation just isn't flockin' hilarious.

The film is at its most entertaining in the musical sequences.

Largely boring, repetitive sequel to the 2011 hit about exotically coloured birds of South America who sing and dance.

So much is going on here, yet nothing of consequence feels like it's *happening*.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 9, 2014
The plot ... borrows very heavily from some of Ben Stiller's live-action hits, in particular a trio of comedies that, like this would-be 'series,' also worse and more crass as the follow-up films were churned out in assembly line fashion."

... a stylish but shallow follow-up lacking the freshness of an original that was mediocre in the first place.
