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.

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.

bucks the usual law of diminishing sequel returns with a great story, even better new dangers, and a voice performance by Kristen Chenowith as Gabi, a lovesick poison dart frog that is destined to become a classic.

Enjoyable music and traces of authentic Brazilian spirit provide reasonable compensation for Rio 2's derivative qualities and storytelling flaws (if only barely so).

"Rio 2" is a lively, colorful, amusing 3D computer-animated adventure.

Saldanha's sequel is infused with spectacular scenery, toe-tapping music, and a myriad of creatures and colors.

The colour and sounds of Brazil ensure Rio 2 keeps its exotic plumage, but the plot and pastiche characters come straight out of Southern California's big fat fanny pack.

Rio 2 has a childish, delicious-looking beauty. It's like watching a box of Froot Loops explode just beyond the tip of your nose. Bring milk.
April 11, 2014
Director and cowriter Carlos Saldanha's film is, above all, a spectacular CG travelogue of his native Brazil, with a virtual zoo of Amazonian residents in their otherworldly natural habitats.

Like its peppy predecessor, Rio 2 doesn't look or sound like other animated licenses to print money. That alone is reason enough to appreciate it.
