The Ring Two Reviews

May not be a masterpiece, but it has its share of thoughtful little angles.
April 9, 2005
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.

Watts is a terrific actress, but there's little she can do to cover the cavernous gaps in logic in Ehren Kruger's script.
April 9, 2005
A perplexing compound of the silly and the glum.
March 24, 2005
Too many loose ends.
March 22, 2005
The let's-travel-through-the-TV-screen sequence was better in Fat Albert.
March 21, 2005
I thought the original had a nice evil chill to it, but this is an unnecessary second chapter that dumbs down all the main characters and is curiously lacking in quality scares.
March 18, 2005
This is a campy scream-a-thon in which you can alternate between freaking and cackling.
March 18, 2005
Appears to have been written on a large piece of blank paper by chickens with their feet dipped in ink.

As in the first movie, there's a lot to the plot that doesn't make sense if analyzed closely, and, as in the first, the end is particularly implausible. But overall, the second Ring is more entertaining.

Tell yourself that it's not a horror movie but a farce -- at times a rousingly ridiculous one -- and you'll save yourself a world of disappointment.
March 18, 2005
While the look and vibe are as polished and unsettling in their blue-white, washed-out way as the first Ring, it's more of a procedural without much real fright.
March 18, 2005
Perfunctory, thrill- free sequel.
March 18, 2005
A dull, plodding horror movie that ventures into the realm of idiocy when it isn't busy remaking the first film.
March 18, 2005
The original was a hit in both Japanese and Hollywood incarnations. But the cold-blooded chills of the Japanese movie have now been so watered down as to be simply cold and bloodless.
March 18, 2005
A movie which will confuse newcomers and disappoint old fans.
March 18, 2005
Borrowing liberally from the Exorcist and Omen movies, and with little regard for credibility, The Ring Two has a familiar ring to it.
March 18, 2005
An uneven story undermines this horror franchise, despite high-quality performances by Naomi Watts and David Dorfman.
March 18, 2005
Terrifyingly dull.
March 18, 2005
The movie is as side-splitting as it is creepy.
