In Rio (2011), after Blu and Jewel escape from the smugglers, Blu can be heard saying "Have you ever heard 'It's a jungle out here'?" In Rio 2, one of the movie's themes is called "It's a Jungle out Here." See more »
So you're going to the Amazon? That place is wild!
I'm sure it's nothing I can't handle. Wait, how wild?
There's snakes that swallow you whole.
Mosquitoes that suck out your blood like a Slurpee.
Flesh-eating piranhas that eat... flesh.

While it wasn't the best movie or even the best animation I have seen this year, this movie is definitely entertaining.
The movie begins with Blu, Jewel and their three kids having fun in their home in Rio, while Blu's former owner, Linda, and her husband, Tulio, are in the amazon. While in the Amazon, they discover a flock of blue macaws. Seeing this on the news, Jewel is desperate to visit and the story begins as Blu, his family and his friends from the last movie accompany him to the Amazon.
The story is decent. There are quite a few songs and plenty of comedic moments as well. While Blu is trying to fit in the tribe, there are a couple of dangerous foes around, Nigel and an illegal tree logger (one of which had plenty of moments which kind of reminded me of Avatar). There are plenty of great moments in the amazon when Blu is trying to fit in, which leads to one of my favourite moments, which was when they revealed the Pit of Doom. Also, it was fun to see Nigel (the white cockatoo) back, along with some new characters. The voice-work and music were quite good as well.
This movie is entertaining, the story and ending are nice as well. Although I have rated it the same as Rio, I think this was a little better. Found it to be quite funny and more action packed as well. A fun family movie.
