Rio 2

Fans of the original Rio may be disappointed in Director Carlos Saldanha’s rather pedestrian and formulaic sequel Rio 2.

When explorers Linda (Leslie Mann) and Tulio (Rodrigo Santoro) find other Blue birds in the Amazon, Blu (Jesse Eisenberg), Jewel (Anne Hathaway) and the kids travel there and find Jewel’s family.  

Of course, Blu is not accepted because of his affinity for humans, but manages to prove himself when big business attempts to bulldoze the pristine valley.


Rio 2 is not up to Mr. Peabody & Sherman or Muppets Most Wanted, but I’ll still give it a 3 out of 5 for its message.
