‘Rio 2’ average effort, but still a family win

Movie Review

(Continued) —

The thing that kind of hurts the flick from that point on is that there is also an evil logging company trying mess things up as well as a rival gang of red macaws thrown in to try and get screen time. It doesn’t so much ruin the flow, but before too long, it gets so busy that I wonder if the latter two elements could have been saved for a likely third chapter.

Still, some of the high points included well-constructed laughs even for the minor characters and the very clever Romeo and Juliet relationship between Nigel and a poison dart frog named Gabi (Kristin Chenoweth). In the end, it all frenetically works itself out well enough. For its acceptable efforts, the final verdict for “Rio 2 is a squawking three out of five feathers.
