Outstanding!! Makes Ring 2 more intense
30 August 2005 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

I am very confused, I do not understand why the studio didn't release this with the film? Okay I understand that to start the film out with a 16 minuet opening like this would have been boring in the theater, it would have dragged the opening on a bit, but that's what editing is for! they could have re-edited this opening, cut it down to maybe 8-10mins. When I first saw Ring 2 in the theater I was unclear about the opening, "why was he so desperate for this girl to see the tape?" why this? why that? and I wasn't alone. It didn't hurt Ring 2 but it could have opened it with a more awe inspiring or knock over the head start then there was. You watch Rings and then watch Ring 2, it makes the opening a lot more intense!! and you feel more for the girl and the guy, your in there with them both. Without Rings your not. I am very glade they did include Rings on the Ring 2 DVD, just wish they could have inserted it along with the film. I also heard they did show this opening in a few limited theaters before Ring 2, so if they do that why couldn't they have inserted it into the film? Well before you watch Ring 2 on DVD make sure you first watch Rings!!!
