This beautifully colorful and harmonious movie picks up with Blu and crew in part 2. They find Jewel's family and have multiple plot lines: Blu intigrating into the tribe, Nigel's revenge, Carnaval in the Amazon, and devastion in the rain forest nation. I like how the environmental message is clear and balanced, not overdone. Everything smoothly sifts from one part to the next. I will watch this over and over again just to hear Bruno Mars say, "Polly want a cracker? Polly want a cracker? No! No more crackers!! I hate crackers!!"
At 80-plus, I'm probably the world's oldest and most ardent fan of Blu and Jewel and their stories in "Rio" and "Rio 2." I'm ashamed to confess how many times I've watched and re-watched their adventures unfold. The delightful characters, avian and human, teach us important lessons about conservation while keeping us laughing every step of the way. I love the way Jesse Eisenberg develops the vulnerable and impressionable Blu as he travels from his cage in Minnesota to the Brazilian jungle. Anne Hathaway, for her part, achieves perfection as she interprets Jewel's self-assured mastery of nature and ultimately reveals a tender spot for Blu. Their lines are funny, clever, and wise. All the characters are great, the music is awesome, and some of the scenes of Brazil, especially Rio, capture the beauty of this land in "4"-D, better in ways than photography could. In Rio 2, we find Blu and Jewel now happily married with three children. This sequel is less about personal transformation and more about saving the rainforest. Still, most of the same characters come back to delight us. The lines and the acting are equally excellent and the entertainment value is just as high. These two films are favorites in my book, definitely recommended for all ages!

Any bird lover or animation fan will thoroughly enjoy this movie. The birds are gorgeous, and have multitudes of detailed facial expressions..and really look individual and like the character each one portrays. The characters are well developed, the story unfolds at a good pace, everything seems to work just right in the plot and a nice ending, the humor was actually funny and the whole thing seemed pretty original. If you want to pick fault well maybe you can, but remember it is a family film, designed to be fun, which it is, though there are some serious moments which add sincerity to the story. The best animated film of the year, and best one I have seen in a long time, will stand up to quite a lot of rewatching. Enjoy.

Make sure to watch th first Rio before this one, then everything will make more sense. We followed up the first with this one a few days later and thoroughly enjoyed the movie. Once again, great animation and it was enjoyed by both kids and adults.
I saw Rio 1 with granddaughter and we were thrilled to find out there was a second one! Rated G, the story-line is a little over the head of a small child, despite its Rated G rating. But I think all movies now-a-days are that way, Parents shouldn't decide based on "Ratings". Then again, I am very very particular and careful. Anyway.... loved loved the music, that is my favorite part of both movies.
Great movie but keep an eye out for 2 packs of Rio 1 & 2 instead. After I purchased this I saw they had two packs with digital copies for cheaper than we paid for this one. Another tip: out digital copy arrived expired but we tried it and it still worked with our movies anywhere account. Always try before you toss.
5.0 out of 5 starsService was spot on & so was the movie!!

Rio 2 continues the adventures of Blu & friends & I think was just as good as the first. Because I am lucky enough to be able to watch the 3D version I see it as it was intended to be seen. The 3D is just brilliant, & I am very grateful that they still do release 3D versions of certain films. No problem with how quick it arrived either.
