MY REVIEW: Amazon Fun!!
Rio 2. Far from perfect in terms of originality but genuinely charming, irresistibly colourful, beautifully choreographed and very nicely done 3D effects, all this makes Rio 2 a winner. Fun shifts from concrete jungle of Rio to the rain forest of Amazon where our couple Blu (played by wonderful nerdy voice of Jesse Eisenberg) and Jewel with their three cute kids find that there are many more like them and they are not the only Blue Macaws in this world. Movie takes a been there done that route when Blu struggles to prove himself in front of Jewel's father played by Andy Garcia (Godfather 3 fame). Despite a cliché script, there is hardly a dull moment and a colourful array of side characters and jokes among them keep the fun going. Climax is also done quite nicely with the right message. I am going with good 7 out of 10 for Rio 2. It's not great but it's quite nice way to kill 2 hours on a weekend.
