    It's a bright and fun movie, but also repetitive and overloaded with plot. A nice enough diversion, but not a necessary one. show more

    Rio 2 teems with colorful animated splendor and elaborate musical numbers, but its rambling, hectic, if good-hearted, story is for the birds. show more

    Most impressive: the striking vibrancy of the animation. This is the rare movie that earns the extra cost of 3-D glasses. show more

    Justin Lowe The Hollywood Reporter

    Under Saldanha's guidance, an extensive team of animators and visual effects artists elevates the 3D format to an alluring level, with character details, dense background imagery and often complex action and aerial sequences (including a requisite Busby Berkeley-inspired musical number) appearing effortlessly executed. show more

    A strange combination of mental exhaustion and boredom. show more

    With a splashy Brazilian-themed musical score, top-notch voice talent and sharp-witted writing, the sequel to “Rio” is one delightful animated romp. It’s as good as the first one and sure to please both the kiddies and adults with its two-tiered humor. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    The superiority of the musical sequences, and laziness of the writing, creates a dynamic where you find yourself wishing the characters would shut up and dance. show more

    Rio 2 is not what I would call Amazon prime, but it’s got enough silly songs and daffy critters to keep the little ones happy. show more

    Rio 2 offers roughly the same approach to story and to story clutter as did the first movie. show more

    It’s fun in stretches, but also busily forced. show more

    Go see this!! Amazing Brazilian music, great cast, luscious colors of the Amazon along with an entertaining yet impactful script. Well worth seeing, whatever age you are.

    My son's class went to see this yesterday. I normally am not entertained by these movies (The last was Shrek & Shrek 2), but I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and had tons of laughs as all of the children in the theatre who clapped at the end. I do not understand the poor reviews.
