Rio 2


Rio 2 finds our avian hero Blue (voiced by Jesse Eisenberg, who will soon play Lex Luthor in the next big DC comic movie) living happily with his wife and chicks in Brazil. But when an entire flock of their rare species, the Spix’s Macaw, is discovered deep in the Amazon, Blue and his brood swoop off to investigate. Stars from Anne Hathaway to Jamie Foxx lend their voices to the cast of offbeat characters, who each get plenty of time to shine.

There are problems here: the middle hour runs perilously close to the story of the Ben Stiller comedy Meet the Parents, and a subplot involving a talent show feels a little calculating. But the characterisation is feisty and memorable, the song-and-dance sequences intricate and colourful. This should charm the socks off little people. Tom Huddleston
