Watts is wonderful, and the story's forsaken-child theme still has plenty of horrific power.

The Hollywood Reporter
While nearly every shock comes at predictable moments, there is genuine ingenuity behind many, and the movie is surprisingly fresh for one made by a guy on his third go-round with the same material.

Rolling Stone
You have to admire Nakata's skill at letting the dead run free while hinting that we may have more to fear from the living. With a braver step in that direction, this middling movie would ring more than box-office bells.

Dallas Observer
The movie works while you watch it, with plenty of scares both sudden and psychological.
50
Variety
Half-intriguing, half-tedious.

Entertainment Weekly
The scariest thing in the not-scary-enough The Ring Two is the notion that even smart, attractive adults - yikes, even mothers - just never learn, either.
50
Chicago Tribune
Despite some impressive technical achievements, it too looks like a movie with little reason for being.
40
L.A. Weekly
Might have something interesting to say about cultural ambivalence by and toward the maternal impulse if only it had a spark of originality or verve.
38
Goes wrong in less than two minutes, which may be a world record for sequels to decent movies.
25
Terrifyingly dull movie.
