Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It is like an exercise in cinema mechanics: Images, music, photography and mood conspire to create a sense of danger, even though at any given moment we cannot possibly explain the rules under which that danger might manifest itself."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Too many loose ends."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"The Ring Two has a great deal of mood and there are some genuinely chilling moments, but weak characters sap it of all strength."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
""The Ring Two" is a horror movie with very few surprises and hit-or-miss moments of suspense that don't lead anywhere on a narrative or emotional level."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"Fracassa ao abandonar o interessante conceito da fita amaldiçoada para se concentrar numa trama boba envolvendo possessão. Ainda assim, é melhor que Ringu 2 - o que não é uma grande proeza."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"A perplexing compound of the silly and the glum."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"The let's-travel-through-the-TV-screen sequence was better in Fat Albert."
‑ Ed Park, Village Voice
"Scarier than the first, but not as interesting."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Unfortunately, the screenplay by Ehren Kruger is littered with plot holes that reduce the story to a generic thriller formula."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"[It] inevitably lacks the unsettling mystery and the evolving unease of the first one. While there are still startling moments, there are no surprises."
‑ Kurt Loder, MTV
"May not be a masterpiece, but it has its share of thoughtful little angles."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek,
"I thought the original had a nice evil chill to it, but this is an unnecessary second chapter that dumbs down all the main characters and is curiously lacking in quality scares."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Feels incomplete and is immensely sloppy, without a lick of sense."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"full review in Greek"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"The 'terror' remains that only in theory as, for all its isolated amusements, [the film] never truly scares."
‑ Michael Dequina,
