Me and my girlfriend went to see this together, expecting it to be bad.We are both big horror movie fans. I loved Friday the 13th, Hellraiser,and I seriously enjoyed the new Ouija movie also. (so did mygirlfriend) anyway we went to the theater expecting a "meh" and mostlybad movie, but this was just HORRIBLE. The acting was beyond cringe,and we had more fun laughing and making fun of the movie then we didactually watching the movie. Nothing made sense and it felt like theywere making it up as they went. It was not even slightly scary, longand boring, bad acting, horrible plot, and pointless things happeningthat had no connection. It also basically just re told the first storyas well. I do not recommend wasting your money on this horrible movie.

The movie was better than it had any right to be, but it didn't try todo anything new. I actually enjoyed the mystery aspect of the film, butit kind of failed as a scary movie, as it wasn't scary at all and wasfilled with cheap fake jump scares. The acting from the two main peopleisn't bad, but you can tell they got the parts just because they werepretty. This movie seems much more of a sequel to the original movieThe Ring, forgetting most of the nonsense from The Ring 2. Rings alsoseems to take more inspiration from the original Japanese films, wherea lot more is learned about Samara's birth parents.
From the trailers, I thought that this movie might have a lot morestuff with social media, but other than a few things, this movie couldhave taken place a decade ago. The only thing to show that the film'sin the present is that they copy & paste video files, and they usesmart phones as flashlights. Overall, the film isn't horrible, but italso isn't very good, I definitely wouldn't recommend it.

Sequels are watched based upon the strength of their predecessors. Itis known that most sequels aren't as good but sometimes the firstinstallment was so good that the sequel can never live up to it and nordoes it have to to be appreciated. The Ring was the scariest movie I'dseen in 20 years. I remember being genuinely spooked when watching thatmovie. Part two wasn't as good but it was watchable. Rings, on theother hand, was trash.
We all know the premise by now: watch the video, get a phone call andthen you have seven days to live. We all know who Samara is and we allknow what she does to her victims, so that avenue is cutoff as far asgenerating scares. Where do you go from there then if you want to tryto cash in on the Samara craze one more time?
In Rings a professor discovers the Samara video and watches it. He alsofinds out that in order to stop the impending death all he has to do isrecord it and have someone else watch it. He then decides to turn thisinto an experiment in order to answer some elusive metaphysicalquestions. He ensures that all of his subjects are able to shake theSamara curse by recording the video and having another person watch it.Of course this would be a never ending chain of video watching butwhatever. In steps the main characters, two lovebirds that are primescary movie age (18-25).
The writers completely mailed this one in. There was no real thoughtgiven to how they would revive the Samara story. There was nolegitimate path for the main character, Julia (Matilda Lutz), to beinserted into this movie yet the writers clumsily shoe horned her inthere; which meant I had to be assaulted by her poor acting the entiremovie. In fact, I'd say that was the scariest thing: her acting.
With no fresh and innovative means to scare its audience the directorrelied on cheap jump scares: suddenly opening umbrella, barking dog,truck horn, breaking glass, etc. Not one of these lousy attempts atspooking the viewer even managed to register a single uptick in heartrate. This movie was lame from the word "go".
They did attempt to legitimize the movie by casting actors such as TheBig Bang Theory's Johnny Galecki and veteran actor Vincent D'Onofriobut their talents were wasted. This movie was an abysmal failure andeven though Samara may not be dead and gone this franchise certainlyis.
