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

  • Liam Lacey

    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.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Bill Zwecker

    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.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Justin Lowe

    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.

  • Kyle Smith

    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.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    Wonderfully animated and well-voiced, Rio 2 is nevertheless too much. Too much plot, too many issues, too many characters. But not too much music.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    There's just nothing magical about the story, nothing that lifts it above its status as an agreeable song-and-dance movie, a laugh here, a laugh there, pleasant but overly busy, for seemingly no real reason other than to throw a few more set pieces at the wall to see what sticks.

  • Elizabeth Weitzman

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

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Kate Stables

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

    Total Film Full Review
  • Angie Errigo

    A very unfocused, sporadically funny film, lifted by its (predictable) visual splendour.

    Empire Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    The characterisation is feisty and memorable, the song-and-dance sequences intricate and colourful, and it’ll charm the socks off little people.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    This hyperactive toon extravaganza has color, flair and energy to burn. But it’s the sort of relentless juggling act that finally proves more exhausting than exhilarating.

    Variety Full Review
  • Stephan Lee

    There are fun moments, especially with Kristin Chenoweth’s vampy poison dart frog. But with more evolved films like "The LEGO Movie" and "Frozen" in the animated ecosphere, overstuffed and gag-reliant time-passers like the Rio movies feel like a dying breed.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    Rio 2 is a perfect example of franchise maintenance in place of storytelling.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    You wish Rio 2 had the smarts and the inventiveness to match its scattered bursts of ambition.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    Rio 2 has exhausted its limited amount of charm. Most regrettably, Rita Moreno appears in her first movie in eight years as Jewel’s overbearing Aunt Mimi but is barely allowed to make an impression.

  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    A tropical tornado of cadmium and cobalt, magenta and marigold, Carlos Saldanha’s frantic follow-up to his well-received 2011 animated feature, “Rio,” ups the ante on sound and movement but pays scant attention to story.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    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.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    A little less agreeable and way more aggressive than its better begetter, Rio 2 has the overstuffed agenda of a movie that’s been focus-grouped to death.

    Time Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

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

    USA Today Full Review
  • Tom Russo

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

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

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

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

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

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Kevin McFarland

    Like the first film, Rio 2 is almost oppressively bright, bombarding the screen with flashes of saturated rainforest colors and even a bird version of soccer (timed a bit too perfectly to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil).

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    If this sequel proves anything, it’s that more is not always better.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Jenni Miller

    A strange combination of mental exhaustion and boredom.

    Film.com Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    You get the sense that Rio 2 wasn't thought through as much as it was quickly cobbled together as it went along, with a simple, clearheaded goal in mind: just make it good enough to warrant a "Rio 3."

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Daniel Green

    Rio 2's Amazon adventure finds its wings clipped by more tired and unnecessary subplots than you can shake a feather at.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Amid all the excess busyness, there are formulas within formulas.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Mike McCahill

    It's hard to ascribe much art or wit to a franchise that retains the services of will.i.am as comic relief – and a thoroughly inorganic talent-show subplot feels like another attempt to groom youngsters for life in the Cowell jungle.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    This jumbled sequel, which was also directed by Carlos Saldanha, loses most of what made the first film such an infectious entertainment.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Louis Black

    All singing, all dancing, all color: Rio 2 is a modern, studio animation blockbuster spilling all over the place, rather than arching into the sky.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Chris Packham

    Rio 2 wants to be a musical, but instead of timing songs to, say, the emotional peaks of the characters, director Carlos Saldanha opts for high-intensity intervals of singing every four minutes.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Eric Henderson

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