Consensus: Rings may offer ardent fans of the franchise a few threadbare thrills, but for everyone else, it may feel like an endless loop of muddled mythology and rehashed plot points.

In the end Rings didn't make me want to drink Drano. It had enough distractions but that's a low bar for a horror movie that includes D'Onofrio and Galecki, who could run rings around the rest of the cast given better material.

The characters are grossly incompetent, in addition to being vapid, and devoid of common sense. They each deserved what they get because each death meant the film was closer to ending.

Rings embodies a common problem of attempted franchise revivals: indecision about its intentions.

Fans of the franchise will probably be pleased ... Too many horror sequels are content merely to recycle what worked the first time.

All that this quickly forgettable story has to offer is some jumpscares, the disturbing presence of the Samara hairstyle and a rather banal idea about the concept of updating. [Full review in Spanish]

An uninspiring horror that has little thrills in this obviously weak sequel to the franchise.

Okay, Rings is their one mulligan, let's just hope that the horror genre starts following the the path of great flicks that 2016 brought us. To be honest,… More

A waste of time is what this film ultimately becomes, it's not as bad as the critics are panning it but it sure as hell isn't much better. If it… More

Confused history, very bad performances, bad editing and boring. This movie have more laughs than scares.
