The Ring Two Movie Review

Rachel (Naomi Watts) and her son Aidan (David Dorfman) have moved away from Seattle into Oregon to, among other things, escape the horrors we saw unfold in The Ring, but when a high school student turns up dead in the same manner as the victims back in Seattle, Rachel realizes the evil that is Samara has returned--this time possessing Aidan himself. This follow-up to the immensely popular original remake has tons of potential, but most unfortunately, it fails to deliver. Yes, we get some scary scenes again--the scene of Samara climbing out of the well is the thing nightmares are made of--but we also get a lot of, well...


...and other poor CGI nonsense. The acting seems to have gone down a notch, especially from Dorfman, who went from genuinely creepy in the original to just sort of uninteresting in this outing. The movie drags terribly at times, and at over two hours long (this review is for the unrated edition), is a true test of patience and endurance. That said, the story is still pretty strong, as we get more details on the life of Samara and we get to see just how far a mother will go to save her child. The Ring Two is not a bad film, but coming off the heels of The Ring, one can't help but be a slight bit disappointed in it.
