Rio 2 review

Blue is the warmest colour in Carlos Saldanha’s good-hearted, gorgeously animated, samba-packed sequel, in which Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) and his macaw family journey up the Amazon to find their relatives.

With a father-in-law (Andy Garcia) and a love rival (Bruno Mars) both menacing Blu, there’s a touch of Little F (l) ockers – but the predictable plot gets an enjoyably venomous boost from Jemaine Clement’s revenge-obsessed cockatoo Nigel.

The swooping 3D musical numbers pop with colour – but it’s hard to see where this feathered-family franchise could fly next.
