"The Ring Two" is an excellent continuation, not sequel, to "The Ring" (by cwfultz)
"The Ring Two" stars Naomi Watts and David Dorfman reprising their roles as Rachel and Aiden Keller, a family plagued by Samara Morgan, a demon child that created a video tape after death that showed horrifying images and killed the viewers seven days after they watch it. The original was met with great praise, labeled by critics as the scariest movie since "The Exorcist" and "Rosemary's Baby", even though I didn't find it scary at all, just a good mystery. In "The Ring Two", Rachel and Aiden have moved to a new town, and evidence arises that a <more>
local death may have been caused by a mysterious video tape. This inspires Rachel, a reporter, to investigate.Most critics don't like this film because it doesn't have the "atmosphere" of the original. Since I've read the books and now how vastly different the first is from the second, I didn't expect it to. You can't expect it to, anyway, seeing as how they have two different directors. I'm quite sure this movie would have been better if Gore Verbinski had been on to direct, but the studio hired the director of the Japanese film. It didn't work for "The Grudge" and it didn't work for this, but it turned out better than what I expected.In "The Ring" the mystery of the video tape was revealed, including where it came from and the history of who made it. Though I will admit, they could have explained it better. The book does. In "The Ring Two", we know what there is to fear so all there is left to do is throw it at us and see what happens. They try something new though, that slightly resembles what occurs at the very end of the book, but is much different and happens in the middle. I didn't like how they just threw the idea of Samara being adopted at us. I wish they had explained it. They also kind of overexagerated on the water. After a fact about the villain is later revealed, it kind of makes sense but not really. I just hope fans react to "Dark Water" well when they see it. I also really liked the scene at the end with the well. There seems to be a scene like that at the end of both of them, one that shocks you and makes you flip out. The first being where she crawls out of the TV. All in all, it was a very cool movie, one of the better ones I've seen recently. I'd give it 10/10 because it did everything I thought it should. They did close it off, but I still expect a third. Why wouldn't they do it?
it's excellent just as scary and as exciting as the first one it really recommend it to people who like to have a good scream with their mates it's guaranteed to keep you up at nights like the first one there is a big quite complicated story behind it all that will make your hair stand on ends it's exiting and the scariest film i have seen in years from the beginning to the end it will have you sceaming ever since i saw it i have having flashbacks and waking up in the night a superb story that would make anyone even the toughest people scream and hide there head in a pillow. buy <more>
it now it's abasing but be warned it is the scariest film and i haven't ever ever screamed that much in my life so don't say i didn't warn you!
It's not quite as good as the original but its worthy follow up (by xankriegor)
The movie starts off several months after the end of the original and Rachel Keller and son Naomi Watts and David Dorfman are settled in a small town in Oregon. Both are trying to get beyond the horrifying events of the first film and trying to adjust to the new lives they are trying to make for each other, which is kind of hard considering the small town mentality and the noisy neighbors that come with it.Rachel now works for a small town newspaper and is covering small town life to it's fullest until her police scanner picks up a strange call from a house outside of town.It appears that <more>
a young man was killed in a strange way and the survivor claims that it happened after viewing a certain videotape. Rachel suddenly begins to fear the worse and once she gets to the crime scene, her fears start to take shape.The work of the ghostly Samara Morgan is at hand once again and this time however, it seems like Samara has gotten more powerful in the fact that death happen instantly after viewing the tape instead of the seven day waiting period. At first Rachel does not want any part of what is going on but once the bodies start to pile up and her son begins to act strangely around her, she has no other choice but to dig even further into the mystery of Samara Morgan's life and she what she find during the course of her investigation will once again put her and her son's life in danger.The movie starts off pretty average but it gets much better once the spookiness get going in full swing and it does build on the foundation that the original set forth on the life of this tragic yet very evil child.It could have been a run in the mill sequel with no originality but it handles itself well in the story department and delivers a few genuine shocks and surprises during the course of the film. One of them is the character of Sissy Spacek, who has a small but pivotal role and her performance is actually pretty creepy in itself.The acting is just as first rate as the original with Naomi Watts giving a very good performance with a tightly woven character that is trying to hold herself and her son together despite the total chaos that is happening around her and David Dorfman is fantastic as her son, who is slowing unwinding beside her.If I can give an accurate comparison of the two movies than I would say that it's in the same league as The Bourne Identity and The Bourne Supremacy in how the sequel is to the original. It's not quite as good as the original but its worthy follow up that does do the first film justice.
Having seen only the original Ringu, I have just experienced the double feature of Ring one and two, which was absolutely fantastic. Not being a fan of horror movies, cold sweat broke out at the previews but I went anyway. And I don't regret it! After seen the American version, which was different in subtle details, Ring two begins where Ring one ends. The mother and her son had just copied the tape and flied to a different place. But soon, far too soon, kids start to die having the same distorted faces. But this time it is not only that Samara wants to be heart, she wants to LIVE, and <more>
had chosen the boy to do so. The only way to prevent this is also the only thing she is not prepared to do.The speed of this movie is thrilling, and before you recover from the last shock, the next one is waiting. In contrary to the first Ring, which was scary, but had not much of a story, this one is more mysterious, and it unfolds before your very eyes. Of course there are some shock moments but try to look anyway, or else you miss the beautiful details of the movie. Especially the scene with the reindeer was mind-boggling. Go, see, and enjoy!
The Ring is probably my favorite film, terrifying, and genuinely scary and actually intelligent. Fortunately I went in with no high expectations. I know how the Hollywood sequel works and I knew that chances were the sequel would fall short of the original. It's a rarity to have a sequel as good as or better than the original. Still I am a HUGE fan of both horror movies and sequels. Of course the typical critics poured out for this one...how crappy it was, blah blah blah and they just aren't being fair. I was however looking forward to seeing how original Ringu director Hideo Nakata <more>
would handle this sequel as his original films were brilliantly done. The Ring TWO picks up shortly after the events of the original film. We quickly discover that the evil video tape is still making its rounds. Rachel Keller and her son have relocated to a small town where she is working for a newspaper and spending more time with Aidan. Unfortunately the killer tape has made it's rounds into the small town where they are now living. Rachel hears about a teenage boy who has mysteriously died and she goes to the scene where everything points to Samara being back again. This is all confirmed when she sees the body of the boy twisted into a look of fear. She finds the video tape, takes it from the home, and burns it in a barrel. Samara doesn't like that and begins a paranormal attack on young Aidan. Since they seem to have such a deep connection she begins to force her possession on him as Rachel desperately tries to stop her. Aiden is dying in a hospital and Rachel is being accused of abusing him and she must dig deep into Samara's past in order to find a way to stop her for good and get her out of her son.The video tape takes a very distant back seat in this film. This is about Samara directly using her abilities to try and be "reborn" through Aidan. If anything the writing crew of The Ring TWO managed to extend a whole new story and still keep it intelligent. I vehemently disagree with anyone who says they were grasping for a story here. Ringu already created plenty of story and the original Ring film left so much open for us to know about Samara and her background and where the curse really came from. If anything the writers may have gone a tad too far and possibly made the plot slightly confusing. There is almost too much to handle in it. From what I saw it fits perfectly with the original, in fact I was impressed with a new director that they were able to match the two films so perfectly without leaving any plot holes. Let's talk positives because there are plenty for Ring fans and horror fans...There are some genuinely NEW and memorable terrifying scenes in this follow up. The Bathtub scene, the scene in the well...these are unique and very creepy. The Intelligence level remains high which is very dreadfully hard to find in a horror film. The series to date is the most intelligent horror films I've ever seen. The story remains true to the original film with visits back to the Morgan Ranch, and the well where Samara died. Sissy Spacek ie:Carrie makes a wonderful Cameo appearance as Samara's birth mother. Hideo Nakata is awesome and he knows this series inside out and sets a mood and knows how to handle the story. There are some downsides to this sequel but not enough to ruin it for me by any means. There were definitely plot holes plentiful. I won't go into exact details but there were some laughable errors. These are normal for any film especially a horror film but I was hoping there wouldn't be because I couldn't find any in the original. The characters were much more shallow in this film. Even Watts and David Dorfman who were both brilliant in the original lacked heart and depth in this one. Although Dorfman who plays Aidan Keller still creeps you out in many scenes and does a good job of playing both Aidan and later the Samara possessed version of himself. The ending for the film does lack something but I think that's Hideo Nakata's style. Both Japanese films were very paranormal, based on psychic powers and other worldly beings and it shows in this version in a big way so rather than being disappointed with the ending and some of the content, I have to chock it up to direction and style. I admit in this sequel I saw something that I didn't get from the original, and I didn't expect from Nakata and that was mainstreaming the film. The first film was dark, gritty, unique and yet in the sequel they used something I DESPISE...CGI!!! Not only did they animate the animals in one of the most disturbing, captivating scenes but they CGI'd SAMARA!! BLASPHEMY!! The film was more lively and colorful with some more action scenes, probably to make up for the edge of your seat time frame they had with the original. Hilariously they tacked on a GREAT catch phrase in the film hence my SUMMARY that Naomi Watts says at the end. For me it took the top place of catch phrases away from Sigorney Weaver in Aliens. I still loved this sequel and I HOPE they serialize the hell out of THE RING...I wanna see many more stories of Samara and find even more out about her past. There is many more stories to tell I think. For most this film will probably be a mild 6 or 7 out of 10...I don't think many are impressed, for me I WAS and I give it a 9/10
A fulfilling and well-done, yet vastly misunderstood sequel... (by MaximumMadness)
"The Ring Two" is everything you could want in a sequel to the surprise hit "The Ring." That is, assuming you have an open mind and are keen on looking for symbolism and deeper meanings in everything. That seems to be the problem with many opinions people have against the film... they just don't get it.The movie takes place presumably some time after the original. Rachel Keller has moved to a small town with her son Aiden to start over... And although we never learn what happened exactly, we are to presume they have broken Aiden's curse by placing it upon someone <more>
or even several people. A dark sub-plot that is mentioned briefly several times, this fact has been troubling the mother and son.But they want to start over, and have been living well. Rachel has a new job and Aiden is seems to be doing better. But this does not last. A teenager is murdered and Rachel suspects the vengeful spirit of Samara is involved. An importent note: The murdered teen is the lead character of the short film "Rings" which reveals that there are so called 'rings' or groups of people who pass around the cursed video, recording anything they see after viewing it, trying to learn it's secrets. As the film progresses, it becomes apparent that Aiden is the target of Samara, who takes hold of him fairly early on. The rest of the film is a dark investigation into Samara's true past, and what has to be done to stop her once and for all.Thats the plot in a nutshell. But as I said before, people have a tendency not to like this film. And I do believe the problem is the lack of sophistication in film audiences nowadays.Many reviews I have read Both professional critics and online fan-reviews all point to different reasons as to why this film was not as good as the original. Some say that it simply isn't scary, which is true in a way. However, the film doesn't seem to be going for sheer scares. It wants to be suspenseful and emotional... not watered down into a pure fright-fest. Other people say the plot is weak and that there is a lack in storytelling. Again, I cannot speak for everyone, but there was definitely power in what I saw. It was a story of a mother willing to do anything and everything to save her son... Even if it means what could be her own death, and the death of others. Very powerful in it's own respect. And another final complaint is that the film is different than the original. I cannot argue with this, because that is the whole point. The story to this film and it's keys are different than the original.Another interesting thing to look for is the symbolism and connections that both "Ring" films have. Water, reflections, and simple noises take on deeper meanings.Bringing on the director of the original Japanese film, "Ringu" Hideo Nakata was also a good choice. He seemed to add another layer, different from Gore Verbinski's first film. And the writer of both films, Ehren Kruger, again proves that he has a knack for suspense.Overall, I felt this film was just as good, if not better than the original. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys suspenseful and emotional stories, or anyone that enjoys a good film in general.
The Ring Two Features More Of The Creepy Samara And An Instant Classic Reindeer Scene! (by FrancesTheWHORE)
The Ring Two starts off pretty much where The Ring left off. Rachel Naomi Watts and Aidan David Dorfman are starting over again after all the horrors of the first movie are, for the time being, finished. It is not long before some events, which are not so coincidental, start to occur. Rachel, as the new editor of a small town newspaper, listens to the police scanner to what may be the biggest story to ever hit this small town. It seems a teenager has been murdered with his girlfriend cowering in the basement, but that is not the strange thing. It is something about the murder victim's <more>
face! Rachel decides she has to see if the events are related to what she has just been through and goes to see the corpse. To her dismay, the face resembles those who have died before. This is how the story begins and the evil Samara begins to show her face again, after she finds Rachel.The Ring Two is not as mysterious as the first. That is easy to figure out, most of the questions were answered in the first, so it leaves more "meat and potatoes", so to speak, for the sequel. You get to see much more of Samara. Boy, does she look creepy crawling out of that well. You will see what I mean. This installment relies much more on imagery, such as the tree we all recognize from the first movie and who will ever be able to forget the instant classic scene with the reindeer or the moose not sure what they were .The fact is, I never expect much with sequels so I was pleasantly surprised by this one. While it is not as good, or original as the first movie, it is no slouch and far better than the last horror movie I saw, Boogeyman. No comparison whatsoever. I give 8 of 10 stars.
The Ring Two is a pretty good sequel for what it was, but it was not like the first one. I guess that is to be expected when you learn everything in the first movie, therefore it goes straight to the horror in the second movie. This was just about as creepy as the first, but the continuity between the two movies did not quite add up. For example, you do not automatically die in 7 days if you see the video but, if you can get someone else to watch it within that time, the curse is transfered over to them. Also, Samara Kelly Stables , is not bound to the 7 days for those that have seen the <more>
tape in the original movie. She is nearly omnipotent, as the only place where you can talk and she can not hear is in your sleep. A little hard to make sense of, but the movie does a good job.Rachel and Aidan Keller Naomi Watts & David Dorfman move to a small, new town to escape the horror of what they have just been through just 6 months earlier. Thinking they had destroyed the last copy of the tape and they were safe, somehow another copy has resurfaced in the small town they were in and Samara has killed yet again. When Rachel shows up at the scene and looks at the face, I assume to make sure it is the same as before, Samara had found her, and stalks her son, Aidan throughout the movie and eventually possesses him.I can not really go too far into the story without giving a lot away, but there are many scenes which will always stand out and will no doubt be spoofed my movies like Scary Movie and others like it. Most notably, the deer scene was great. That made the movie for me, but there were others that were good, too. While I think this movie was not as good as the first, it does not make a complete mockery of itself either like Jeepers Creepers 2 . It is very good. 7.5/10
Today I saw this movie as a premiere in a "Ring marathon" organized by an Amsterdam movie theater. It pleasantly surprised me that the first part again did not fail to sent shivers all over I previously saw it as a sneak preview when it came out . People often expect sequels to be solely-profitable-meant and kind of cheap extracts. I think in the case of The Ring two, the producers really did their best to make a good story and to provide some pretty heavy scares again. Perhaps unexpectedly, this movie really tries to further build upon the basis of the first one and tries to <more>
explain some items left unexplained in the first movie. This has been done quite well.Obviously, there are some flaws. Why, for example, would the door to a cellar be covered with spiderwebs if all furniture was moved in there the day before? Also, quite a few questions are still left unanswered. I feel there is certainly room for a third part. In case such is produced, I will definitely go and see it.Hint: if you have not seen the first part, you should really take the opportunity to do so now. Unlike with, for example, final destination 2, with The Ring 2 I would strongly recommend to watch its prequel. If you have already seen The Ring, you should probably refresh your memory before you go and see part 2.This is definitely a movie to watch in a cinema, hoping there are no giggling ladies and gentlemen around.
