Top Critics’ Reviews
Rotten: Rings embodies a common problem of attempted franchise revivals: indecision about its intentions.
Rotten: If crap movies carried penalties for inflicting torture on audiences, then Rings would merit a death sentence.
Rotten: At no point does the movie manage even a single sequence of sustained tension, or a frisson of genuine terror.
Rotten: Rings cannot make sense of the hodgepodge of old and new mythology, which confuses a Samara origin story that had already been settled in the other entries.
