|Poster says "Super Scary". No.|
This movie did not need to be made. Why do I own this? The first movie, The Ring, was so good. Such a great mind bender. When did people get together and say “Let’s make another one” and actually agree this was a good idea. I am such a big fan of the first and the only times I have watched this dvd was when I had just watched the first one. But watching this on its own I really started to notice how weak this movie is. But can you really own the first one and not own the second one?
Not that there aren’t some scary moments. I think that Naomi Watts tries her best here to make the movie work. The script and plot are very vague and stretch to try and capture the magic of the first one. I think, if a sequel was needed, they would have done better to totally break from the first movie, the first cast, the first family and to have it continue on the same path but in a different venue. For example having the video going viral or spread through email because even though this was made in 2005 who still used VHS even then? Makes me really wish someone would make a third just to redeem the lameness of The Ring Two.
Final Verdict: Not worth owning but I might keep it simply because I own the first.
-Simon Baker, The Mentalist, plays a minor role in this movie. But even his brain power can’t save him.
