Trivia

Director Carlos Saldanha became interested in casting singer Bruno Mars in his first voiceover role after seeing him on Saturday Night Live (1975). After working with Mars, he rewrote his character to make him less 'macho' and, after a recording session, had a segment reanimated to fit his singing. See more »

A very good sequel
5 September 2014 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I loved the original Rio film and I found Rio 2 to be a very enjoyable sequel. What really makes these movies great is the outstanding attention to detail. The colours are extremely bright and vibrant which make the adventure all the more enjoyable. The scenery is beautiful too and brings a realistic feeling.

Its great that all the original characters remained (from what I can remember anyway) and then there was some new additions too. The red frog was particularly amusing and it was great to see more of "the kids". All the characters were voiced exceptionally well which meant the jokes were executed perfectly to provide the laughs. There was actually quite a few laugh out loud moments and in general it's a film that made me smile all the way through.

The storyline to this sequel was interesting and the film flowed at a nice pace. There were some great scenes but my particular favourite was the football match!

Overall I really enjoyed this sequel. I think Rio is a very underrated animated movie franchise,I personally hope there's going to be a Rio 3.

8/10
