Three of four Angry Birds Rio episodes — all visually tied to Rio 2 — have been released. Rio 2 received mixed reviews from critics. The site's consensus reads: "Like most sequels, Rio 2 takes its predecessor's basic template and tries to make it bigger -- which means it's even busier, more colorful, and ultimately more exhausting for viewers outside the youthful target demographic.
Mark Adams of Screen Daily said, "As a delightfully bright and breezy bit of 3D animated entertainment Rio 2 hits the sweet spot, and will no doubt be a box office hit with its blend of good-natured jungle adventure, songs, and gags. The only frustrating thing is that it feels very much like a by-the-numbers sequel, lacking the verve, ebullience, and left-field humor that made 's Rio such a surprise hit.
Just don't tell them that the Rio movies are musical comedies about an avian genocide. Elizabeth Weitzman of the New York Daily News gave the film three out of five stars, saying "We're grading on a sliding scale here.
But if Rio 2 is hardly Pixar quality, it's certainly better than the average animated sequel. Who's that toucan again?
Is he a bad guy? But for the music and brilliantly picturesque look, it's worth the 3-D ticket. That's no easy feat, but it's also one sequel-makers probably shouldn't aspire to.
Tom Russo of The Boston Globe gave the film two out of four stars, saying "The story flows, but not always freely, thanks to its manufactured feel. Too much plot, too many issues, too many characters. Where the film excels though, in an even more pronounced way than the first film, is in the choreographed animation for the musical numbers.
Rafer Guzman of Newsday gave the film one and a half stars out of four, saying "The movie has one goal: to amuse the most children with the least amount of effort. That alone is reason enough to appreciate it.
A couple of mediocre vocal tracks bring down my rating to a 3. I do like this band in general, their sound is well worth exploring, but on the face of it, compared with earlier releases this album is not really essential.
Delightful work by this hardly known German band. It's not common experience for me, but this is an album that hits the spot immediately. To the point that I could leave it on endless repeat.
Different genres are effortlessly transcended here. Leaves me feeling as if I just dropped in on friends who happen to be great musicians having some fun. Or in other words, one of the best garage bands I can recall and I don't mean it as a put down. The distortion pedal, some feedback is applied in a sensible way, creating great sound without any hint of Metal, or Heavy-Rock. The bass is also using much distortion to the effect of a thunderous, yet non-aggressive bottom line.
The keys add some colour, but not used as lead instruments. Some noodling here and there wouldn't be missed, but not really disturbing either. The whole delivery is very carefree and relaxed, no sign of struggling here, only pure fun.
And it works really well. Long pieces with some structure that still permit a lot of stretching out provide a nice balance. Comparisons here would be rather futile, but let me say this. The end result is honest, heartfelt, pure fun! It may never be considered a carefully arranged Prog masterpiece, but for the enjoyment I derived from this recording, a solid 4 is appropriate.

Leith commented; "the BBC ban on tATu's video, the fact that their manager, Ivan Shapovalov, has said some dodgy things about his marketing strategies, and that Richard and Judy have advised people not to buy the record.
But the thing that really starts the conversation going is the mention of lesbianism. Eyebrows are raised. Sly grins are exchanged. The subject, clearly, is fascinating to us. We approve of it. After their manager admitted to portraying the girls as lesbians to market their music and aimed t. The video is also a sign of how blurred the line between entertainment and exploitation has become".
