Rio 2

The voices behind Blue Sky Studio's original animated family adventure Rio return as Jewel (Anne Hathaway), Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) and their three kids are hurtled from their domesticated life to the wilds of the Amazon. As Blu tries to make the most of his new jungle surroundings, he goes beak-to-beak with the vengeful Nigel (Flight of the Conchords' Jemaine Clement) and his most fearsome adversary of all – his father-in-law.

Here’s the short version: “Loved Rio? You’ll love Rio 2.” Kids in search of holiday film fun will eat up the further antics of Blu (the blue feathered Spix’s macaw, voiced by Jesse Eisenberg), as he, his wife Jewel (Anne Hathaway), and his kids set off from Rio to save the Amazon rainforest from evil tree-felling felons.

This hyperactive toon extravaganza has color, flair and energy to burn.

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

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