Consensus: Ring Two serves up horror cliches, and not even Hideo Nakata, the director of the movies from which this one is based, can save the movie from a dull screenplay full of absurdities.

Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times

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.

Too many loose ends.

Joshua Starnes

The Ring Two has a great deal of mood and there are some genuinely chilling moments, but weak characters sap it of all strength.

A perplexing compound of the silly and the glum.

Ed Park
Village Voice

The let's-travel-through-the-TV-screen sequence was better in Fat Albert.

Scarier than the first, but not as interesting.

Stephanie Zacharek

May not be a masterpiece, but it has its share of thoughtful little angles.

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.

Felix Vasquez Jr.
Cinema Crazed

Feels incomplete and is immensely sloppy, without a lick of sense.

Ring 1 is better than ring 2

Not bad in the way it was made, just bad because you get a been-there-done-that feeling.
Dean McKenna
There are enough spooky moments to keep you watching this film, but slight, sequel.
