Fifth about The Seventh

Rio 2

Rio 2: the weakest link in Carlos Saldanha’s film is the story, which is excessively busy; the messages that are supposed to be conveyed, however relevant they are, end up being poorly displayed. The voice cast is very diverse, but Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway (not trying to do too much and being perfect fits for their characters) are the highlights. That is not to say, however, that the film is not a pleasant journey; the animation is beautiful and colorful (Busby Berkeley being an obvious inspiration; the character design is smart enough to differentiate each of the blue birds) and the music, great upbeat fun (they are varied enough; “Poisonous Love” reminds a Broadway show song, while “What is Love” and “Beautiful Creatures” use Brazilian percussion with magnificent effect).
