A disjointed retread of the The Ring co-written by the mastermind behind Batman & Robin, this half-sequel/half-remake is all kinds of stupid and boring. The cleverest thing it does is name its tiny-nippled, brotastic, generic white male lead "Holt."

A screenplay that, while faulty in spots, felt imaginative, Gothic, and paid tribute to the original story in a fresh way.
March 2, 2019
The film attempts to dodge already well-covered territory ... by going back further than the other films have, but then proceeds to suck all the fun out of it.
February 13, 2019
It's a sloppy movie, an ostensible horror film lacking in scares and weighed down by half-realized mythology and numerous repetitive stretches.
February 13, 2019
It is a rehash of the story we have seen before, nerve-jangling music and some pretty average special effects setting up the few and largely ineffective jump-out-of-your-seat moments.

This movie fails to accomplish any of its goals, and it doesn't care about surprising you.

Is it a true sequel? Is it a reboot? Even after watching the film, it's really hard to say -- which is one of the reasons why this is hard to watch.

Rings provides an interesting expansion on the mythology of Samara, but offers little else.
November 1, 2018
Rings is a failed attempt to expand the mythology of the series but explains too much while providing too few frights in a sequel that is equal parts boring and unnecessary.
August 30, 2018
This film goes back to the origins of the Ring series and is much more of a murder mystery with supernatural elements.

Possibly, the worst of its kind seen in years, not counting Blair Witch... [Full review in Spanish]

2017 had a fair number of dodgy horror films, but this unquestionably deserves to rank among the worst.
November 7, 2017
The story is similar, although it is "digitized" to adapt it to the time it is running, and there is no causal continuity with what happened in the two films with Naomi Watts. [Full review in Spanish]
November 3, 2017
If you love horror as a genre, skip this one and revisit the 2002 film instead or perhaps, watch Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh's latest MSG film. That's bound to give you the creeps.
August 11, 2017
A good, polished spookster for most of its duration, it's the killer ending that makes the film truly pop. It's a good example of how the final few seconds of a film can lift it several notches above the routine.
March 22, 2017
Overall, RINGS is sadly disappointing.
March 13, 2017
A bigger drag than Samara's limp locks.
March 9, 2017
Rings is cursed from the outset, doomed by the same technology in which the franchise once thrived.
March 3, 2017
The cursed video now looks like an experimental film made by somebody who has watched more Marilyn Manson videos than Stan Brackhage pieces. It does, however, provide clues to a mystery that really isn't worth solving.
February 28, 2017
Unlike Naomi Watts' character in the first two films, Julia and Holt are undistinguished by complexity.
