RIO 2 (G)

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - MOVIE REVIEWS -

So-so se­quel to the 2011 an­i­mated an­i­mal­ad­ven­ture hit. Blu, Jewel and their three chil­dren have now been trans­planted from Rio de Janeiro to the wilds of the Ama­zon. As Blu tries to fit in, he goes beak-to-beak with the venge­ful Nigel, and meets his fa­ther-in-law for the first time. At best, a safe, mid­dle-of-the-road bet for par­ents sad­dled with pre-school­ers and early pri­mary-school­ers who need a trip to the cin­ema. The film­mak­ers be­hind the Ice Age fran­chise know their tar­get de­mo­graphic well. Fea­tures the voices of Jamie Foxx, Andy Gar­cia, Bruno Mars.

Jessie Eisen­berg and Anne Hath­away voice main char­ac­ters Blu and Jewel
