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.

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.

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

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.

"Rio 2" ends up being not so much about the birds as mostly for the birds.

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

He's villainous, she's venomous. Fairly decent animated movie! While it wasn't the best movie or even the best animation I have seen this year,… More
