Thoroughly mediocre.

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

The derivative Rio 2 is a riot of color with groovy music, but not a single original moment to its name.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
April 2, 2014
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.7/10
April 10, 2014
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.
Full Review | Original Score: C
April 11, 2014
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.
April 10, 2014
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
April 11, 2014
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.
