Rio 2--nice follow up to Rio 1, kids enjoyed more than adults

For an animated film, the characters were funny, but it was a little bit slow. Compared to the first one, it was bright & colorful & the kids enjoyed the story line. It seemed, however, that there were too many little side stories competing into one film. Kristin Chenowith as the frog was hilarious & the music was great. Fun film for kids. This one not so great for adults (some animated films like Despicable Me & Frozen were good for both).

Why are animated movies all becoming musicals?

Rio 2 was ok, though not as good as the first. The bigger question in my mind is why so many animated films are now musicals. (See Happyfeet 2, Madagascar 2 and 3, etc.) The musical numbers in Rio 2 are clever and entertaining, but they all look the same. It gets boring after a while. Maybe the studios are using the results of focus groups. Or perhaps, my cynical side says, studios like having half of the scenes be music-and-dance numbers, because it allows them to avoid having to come up with compelling, more engaging stories. It worked for Frozen, but not for Rio 2.

splash of the amazon adventure

We loved it from the beginning. They could not have made a better story line. As always blown out of the park with color and design. The graphics of the amazon made you feel like you where right in it. I loved to see them as a family dynamic. The acting was on point loved the one liners that stood out. This is a movie for the whole family to see.

Not nearly as good as the original but worth a look. Wait till it shows up at the cheap theaters though. Wish I had not paid full price for this movie. Will not buy the DVD/Blu-ray when it comes out.

Great film

Rio 2 was a fun movie for my grandchildren and me. After the film we had a good discussion about the disappearing rainforest in the Amazon. They got the point that unless we do something about our environment we are in for a rough ride. The cinematography was exceptional, beautifully crafted. Loved the music, the voices and the story was excellent
