    Choosing any unwieldy subplot to trim from Rio 2 is tough, as they're each so vibrantly rendered.

    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.

    The predictable plot gets an enjoyably venomous boost from Jemaine Clement’s revenge-obsessed cockatoo Nigel.

    A strange combination of mental exhaustion and boredom.

    The movie feels at once too busy and too derivative. That’s no easy feat, but it’s also one sequel-makers probably shouldn’t aspire to.

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

    The net effect is a shapeless would-be diversion in which things just happen independently, a string of effects missing any cause.

    I like enjoying the first "Rio" movie (which is just like the first "Despicable Me" movie). I think Rio 2 will be better as it is with "Despicable Me 2". I really want to see that movie during my graduation. Expand

    Rio 2 es una película que iguala o supera a su anterior entrega, con una muy buena adaptación de algunas obras muy conocidas, además de la carisma que ofrece su historia, logra ser una buen film animado. Expand

    Certainly a beautiful film with seamless animation, but while it doesn't entirely fall into the sequel traps, it still has a very generic and basic story line with nothing new or unique to show for itself. However, it works perfectly for a kids film and has some nice contemporary morals. Expand

    What to do if you have not even idea what to do? Answer is just make second part of something.
    Rio the First was a good enough movie, boring
    enough to see it few times.
    Rio 2 that is movie which was produced to get you r money. High level of stupidity, scientist who will safe our world, bad guys who will ruin our world and so on.
    I wouldn't recommend this film for watching, that is wasting of your time.

    An example of why great movies shouldn't have sequels. This overly boring movie, with dull dialogue, flat jokes and a plot that tries to keep us intrigued, but all that is does is the opposite. Expand
