You may be aware that the release of 2017's "Rings" (PG-13, 1:57) camea dozen years after the previous American sequel in the "Ring"franchise, or even that the very first "Ring" film was Japanese, butmost people aren't aware of how the story began and how far-reaching ithas become. The story of people dying seven days after watching thestrange images on a mysterious videotape was first told in a trilogy ofbooks by Japanese author Koji Suzuki in the 1990s. The first novel in"The Ring Trilogy" was simply titled "Rings" and was published in 1991.In Japan, it inspired two manga adaptations, a 1995 film ("Ring:Kanzenban"), a TV series ("Ring: The Final Chapter"), another movieversion (1998's "Ring", also known as "Ringu") and a sequel (1999's"Ringu 2"), followed by two remakes of the 1998 film, one from SouthKorea ("The Ring Virus" in 1999) and the other from the U.S. ("TheRing" in 2002). The American version made over five times what it costso, naturally, there was a sequel. The profits for "The Ring Two"(released in 2005) "only" tripled its budget and was also rated muchlower than the previous film by both critics and audiences. The successof "The Ring" led to the American remakes of other Japanese horrorfilms such as "The Grudge" (and its sequel), "Dark Water" and "Pulse",but the diminishing "Ring" returns and reviews probably contributed tothe 12 year gap between "The Ring Two" and "Rings".

Updating the story for a new decade means that, rather on VHS tape, thedeadly video at the center of the story is now being stored as adigital file and is viewable on a variety of devices, making the clipall the more ubiquitous – and dangerous. Remaining the same, however,is the origin of the video (a murdered girl named Samara reaching outfor vengeance from beyond the grave) plus the way in which the video'scurse is carried forward (the viewer receiving a phone call with acreepy female voice on the other end seeing strange things that are notthere and then dying exactly seven days after watching the video,unless he or she copies the video and dupes some other poor schmuckinto watching it before the week is out). We see the culmination ofthis pattern play out in the first scene on an airplane flight duringwhich a handsome young man explains his nervousness to an incredulousfemale passenger by explaining, just as the plane is about to land,that he only has to "make it" through a few more minutes.

Julia and Holt (Matilda Lutz and Alex Roe) are just two teenagers inlove… who are about to find themselves deep in a well of malevolence.Holt is heading off to college, while Julia stays back in theirhometown to take care of her ailing mother. Texts, phone calls andSkype sessions keep the relationship going… until Holt suddenly andinexplicably stops answering Julia's calls. Desperate, Julia jumps inher car and drives to Holt's college where he is nowhere to be foundand where those who know him either don't know where he is or won'tsay. Julia knows that Holt has been getting extra credit by working ona project for Gabriel, his biology professor (Johnny Galecki), but theprof denies knowing who Holt is, so Julia follows him to another floorof the classroom building to see what's up. She finds herself in a roomfull of students, video screens and digital clocks which are labeledwith various students' names and which are counting down from variouspoints in time. Julia follows a panicked student named Skye (AimeeTeegarden). Skye admits that she knows where Holt is but, beforeexplaining further says, "I have to show you something first". Skyetakes Julia home and Julia sees texts from Holt on Skye's phone. Julialearns about the cursed video and that Holt watched it – almost exactlyseven full days earlier – so she watches it in order to save Holt,which starts her own proverbial clock ticking. But the video Julia seesis a little different from the previous versions. There are even moredisturbing, surreal and seemingly random images in Julia's video – andher experience is different from everyone else's. With Holt's help,Julia follows the clues in her video and the visions that she startsseeing so she can unravel the mystery, save her own life and maybefinally give Samara's spirit some peace. This quest ends up in a smalltown, where they meet a secretive B&B owner (Jill Jane Clements) andthe caretaker (Vincent D'Onofrio) of the grounds of a former church, asthey learn of the disappearance of another young girl 30 years earlier,all of which adds background to the version of this saga that began in"The Ring".

"Rings" is both enjoyable and frustrating. Updating the technologyinvolved with watching, copying and sharing the infamous Samara videoopens up more possibilities for story-telling, while delving deeperinto Samara's sad history adds interesting background – and also takesthe tale of the tape in some cool new directions. On the other hand,the script's lack of exposition makes the movie hard to follow… and theacting is somewhat lacking. The ending brings most of it together well,but getting there will put you through the… wringer. "B"

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.

Twelve years have passed since we last caught a glimpse of thewaterlogged Samara clambering out of the well; twelve years. I want youto remember that because evidently the makers of Rings, the newestinstallment in the series forgot. They forgot that the origin of theirvengeful specter has already been told and the supposed rules ofSamara's curse need maybe a refresher at most. Yet given the fact thisfilm simultaneously ups stakes and downplays expectations I have toask, what are we supposed to be looking at: a reboot? A sequel? A spinoff? I can't honestly tell you what we're supposed to be watching, butwhat it looks like is a really s***ty horror movie – one that plumforgot to bring the scary. Jump scares abound in this movie and ifthat's all it takes to jolt you out of your seat then watch out for theloud claps of car doors closing and umbrellas bursting open. Otherwisethe second scariest thing about this movie is it makes an entire ruralGeorgia town look like the McPoyles from It's Always Sunny(2005-Present).

After an absurd opening hook provided by the single worst in-flightmovie ever, the film begins with a young teenage couple inexplicablyagog about the legend of Orpheus. Male Meatbag #1 (Roe) is headed offto college leaving Female Meatbag #1 (Ingrid Lutz) to wait for theinevitable turkey drop back in their hometown. The film insinuatesshe's taking care of a sick family member but we never see them and theplot thread drops as soon as Male Meatbag #1 stops answering his phone.Female Meatbag #1 becomes upset and makes her way to the guy's collegewhere we meet (or rather re-meet) Male Meatbag #2 (Galecki). #2 is abiology professor who in addition to barely teaching classes alsosomehow managed to start an experimental death cult to protect himselffrom the cursed tape he recently found. Male Meatbag #1 is involved;Female Meatbag #1 sees the video, Female Meatbag #2 (Teegarden) diesand we all go on a glorious adventure to stop our flat screens fromattacking.

The main problem that every film in the Ring Series (2002-Present) hasto try to overcome is finding a second act that matters. The conceptall but requires the main source of fright and threat to bookend anarrative dead zone whereby victims anxiously await their fates. TheRing (2002) accomplished this with an engaging mystery. The characterswere given a clear time clock, elevated stakes and clues within thecursed video to give the audience something to play with.

Rings attempts the same thing, but since the audience should have somecontext (again it's been twelve years), we're all just twiddling ourthumbs waiting for the characters to catch up. The mystery is aslightly different take on the curse (it's also a slightly differentvideo), but it hardly justifies this airless, soulless cash grab.Especially since the Gothic atmosphere of the first is completelyabsent and all we're left with to mull on is a late appearance byVincent D'Onofrio.

For what it's worth, supporting players Vincent D'Onofrio and JohnnyGalecki outshine the leads in this insipid film like rusted tin cans ina rubbish tip. They're not by any means good, but they wisely play totheir strengths unlike Ingrid Lutz who looks like she's about to bursta blood vessel trying to fake an American accent. Of course incomparison to Roe, she actually looks like she's trying to sell herrole. Roe ambles onto the screen like a last place relay racer whosuddenly decided "I just don't give a f*** anymore." This film is aredundant farce lacking any of the inspiration that made the firstAmerican remake not just good but a J-horror trendsetter. The chillsand thrills are non-existent and story can't help but flounder in a seaof inattention and indecision. What is Rings supposed to be? I honestlythink it might just be a bad joke twelve years in the making.
