It’s time for Rio!!!!! Rio 2 to be exact. I have fun watching this movie. Although, the songs are not catchy enough as the first one but I do love the song. And, surprisingly Nigel (Jemaine Clement) comes back for a revenge. Let’s start this while drinking a cup of coffee.
It’s wonderful day for Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) and Jewel (Anne Hathaway) and their three kids named Carla (Rachel Crow), Bia (Amandla Stenberg) and Tiago (Pierce Gagnon). While Jewel trying to give the children a ‘traditional’ breakfast, Blu already gave them a ‘modern’ breakfast. Jewel frustrated to see the children acts like a human while the fact is that they are birds. As if answering Jewel’s frustration, the TV pop-up a news from Blu’s owner Linda (Leslie Mann) and her husband Tulio ( Rodrigo Santoro) appeared.
The news stated that the Blue Macaw species may have been found in the Amazon and maybe in flocks. The news lit the spark for Jewel to go to Amazon. Of course with her family, Raphael, Pedro and Nico. Not all are happy with the news. An illegal logger business owner, Big Boss (Miguel Ferrer) feared that the husband/wife discovery may interfere with his business and taking all measures to ensure that don’t happened.
Well, after so many hardship, they arrived at Amazon and Blu meet fear of his life. Eduardo. His father-in-law. Yup, after that so many things happened. I’m not going to tell you everything. Try and watching.LOL.
Off to my opinion now. Blu and Jewel do have a wonderful family. Blu clumsiness and worries never gets old. I mean if that’s gone, we will not having this sequel. However, the children have their own personalities though. Carla is like a teenager girl. She rebels most of the time and love to have fun almost all the time. Bia I like a girl with glasses. She is intelligent and often help her little brother understanding the world. Tiago is an active little brother. Not afraid for adventures and have a deep respect for his uncle, Roberto.
Nigel on the other hand, still same. But now, he have partners, Gabi and Charlie. Believes she is a poisonous frog, that fact is proven false by none other than Bia. I somehow love Nigel. His accent and deep regard for perfect performance really put a mark in my heart. Although, his plans always failed due to Blu’s good luck.
As for performance and CG effects, it’s awesome. it’s much better than the first movie and the choreography is so beautiful. I was mesmerized. Especially during the song when Jewel arrived home for the first time in her life. The fight between humans and birds?? Totally awesome. so many blue birds.
The movie really teach us on appreciate our roots and not being ashamed of it. As human, we need to protect endangered species rather than destroying it. of course, in the black market this advice means nothing to them. Human is a greedy species after all. Thanks for reading.
