The Ring Two has a great deal of mood and there are some genuinely chilling moments, but weak characters sap it of all strength.

Feels incomplete and is immensely sloppy, without a lick of sense.

"The Ring Two" is a horror movie with very few surprises and hit-or-miss moments of suspense that don't lead anywhere on a narrative or emotional level.

Unfortunately, the screenplay by Ehren Kruger is littered with plot holes that reduce the story to a generic thriller formula.

Fracassa ao abandonar o interessante conceito da fita amaldiçoada para se concentrar numa trama boba envolvendo possessão. Ainda assim, é melhor que Ringu 2 - o que não é uma grande proeza.

[It] inevitably lacks the unsettling mystery and the evolving unease of the first one. While there are still startling moments, there are no surprises.

The 'terror' remains that only in theory as, for all its isolated amusements, [the film] never truly scares.

Do yourself a favor and don't tarnish the original "Ring" by seeing this sequel.
April 21, 2005
Destroyed its own best scary bits in favor of digging up more mythology.

The result is actually much better than anyone had perhaps expected, with a fright quota that actually exceeds the original, even if it completely abandons common sense and rational plotting to get there.

Shouldn't wind up the devotees too much and will keep fans of the first American movie quiet.

Just about as bad as the first film was. If anything, it's a little stupider.

The film may not be quite as good as the first one, but rest assured there are plenty of scares left in this franchise.

May not be a masterpiece, but it has its share of thoughtful little angles.

Chicago Sun-Times

It is like an exercise in cinema mechanics: Images, music, photography and mood conspire to create a sense of danger, even though at any given moment we cannot possibly explain the rules under which that danger might manifest itself.

We're left with another tepid PG-13 horror sequel that rehashes huge chunks of the original and, in the end, has almost nothing new to offer.
