RIO 2 (Theatrical Release USA 2014)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Rio 2—just as great as its predecessor movie, Rio—does not miss a beat throughout the entire movie. The animation is outstanding with exceptionally vibrant coloration, the characters are deeply drawn, the writers and director understood how to draw an audience into an emotional involvement with the story. The portrayal of story is completely relatable. The voicing, both personable and highly professional, adds tremendous value to the film. Musical score…lovely. This animated movie is a wonderful child/adult share as it manages that difficult leap to appeal to all age levels well. The movie deserves its watch. It’s a wonderful film overall.
