Comments on Movie: Rio 2 (2014)
"In spite of some sloppiness this movie earns a lot of good will for having its heart in the right place." - Mathew DeKinder, STL Today.

"A spirited journey, peppered with plucky action, some rousing musical numbers, and a dash of silly slapstick." - Kristy Puchko,

"The film is at its most entertaining in the musical sequences." - Philippa Hawker, Sydney Morning Herald. 

"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." - Steve Persall, Tampa Bay Times.

"In general, Rio 2 feels less inspired and more forced than its predecessor." - Leigh Paatsch, Herald Sun.

"Rio 2 (2014) is fun, adorable and entertaining. It works as a sequel as it follows up the life of Blu and Jewel after the first film." - Rosalyn Lim.

Movie Review: Rio 2 (2014)
The Blue Macaw family.

Rio 2 (2014) is fun, adorable and entertaining. It works as a sequel as it follows up the life of Blu and Jewel after the first film. Sadly, in general it is much inferior compared to its first film in terms of concept and story line as it is not as meaningful or as adventurous as its predecessor.

Nigel and Gabi.

Nonetheless, the film has assembled menagerie of wild characters which are voiced by amazing voice casts in addition to its top notch visuals and depictions of animals' lives and cultures so this film actually does not disappoint!

PS. Rio (2011) is one of my top favorite animated feature so I had extra high expectations in various aspects. >< This would be the last animated feature entry for Blue Sky Studios for this year! Now we wait for the release of Peanuts (2015) and Ice Age 5 (2016)! ;)

Rio 2 (2014) Behind the Scenes

Favorite Movie Character
Gems of the forest.

Jewel is definitely my favorite blue bird. Aside from being a pretty bird, she loves flying and cherishes freedom. She also prefers wildlife and nature than domesticated life. In the first film, Jewel is brave, independent and not easily impressed. In the second film, she has shown her sweeter, softer and motherly side; she always thinks not for herself but for her entire family and that is selfless. How not to adore this lovely animated Blue Spix Macaw?
