I'm gonna get you outta here.
No, no! You can't be here! You have to go! Nigel is...
[suddenly Nigel attacks Blu and throws Blu in a cage]
Hello, pretty bird. So kind of you to join our little soiree.
Oh, come on! You really think I came alone? I got three of the roughest, meanest, craziest birds in all of Rio right behind me.
Woohoo! You know there guys!

We're saved! That's right! ...

We saw this in 2D, on a digital projection system. While the movie is an hour and 36 minutes, it felt longer to me. I guess it's because there was nothing new about this, it was all pretty predictable. I even dozed off for a few minutes part way through.
Now, on the positive side, the movie's colors are rich and vibrant. The animation quality is simply amazing; some of the wide scenic shots looked almost real. The music is a lot of fun and there are some good laughs, especially in the latter half of the film. My 10-year old son was glued to the screen; even asked us when it was over which was our favorite scene(s). Overall, it's a good film. I'd say take the kids and go have some fun.
