Consensus: Like most sequels, Rio 2 takes its predecessor's basic template and tries to make it bigger -- which means it's even busier, more colorful, and ultimately more exhausting for viewers outside the youthful target demographic.

The movie has one goal: to amuse the most children with the least amount of effort.

Where the film excels ... in an even more pronounced way than the first film, is in the choreographed animation for the musical numbers.

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.

It'll keep the kids content for a couple of hours, though it's likely to bore the grown-ups.

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 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.

I thought the first "Rio" was fresh with some fantastic animation. The sequel however is very bland, and falls into the generic sequel rut. Blu and… More

Uninspired and formulaic, Rio 2 has none of the charm or wit of the original. Setting off on a new adventure, Blu takes his new family to the Amazon where he… More
