Boring continuation of bland franchise
8 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

In Chicago, Jake (Matthew Knight) is now in a mental institution under the care of his therapist Dr. Sullivan (Shawnee Smith). He's afraid but she doesn't believe him. He is killed in his padded cell. In Tokyo, Naoko (Emi Ikehata) intends to stop the curse of her sister Kayako (Aiko Horiuchi). The news of the killings keep following her around. Back at the Chicago apartment, Lisa (Johanna Braddy) steals her brother Max the super's keys and her boyfriend Andy (Beau Mirchoff) leads them into apartment 305. She leaves immediately. She lives with Max (Gil McKinney) and their little sister Rose. Gretchen (Marina Sirtis) is their neighbor. The killing continues. Naoko arrives to investigate the apartment building followed later by Dr. Sullivan.

The timeline mashup has stopped. That was probably the only interesting part of the sequel. This is a very straight boring continuation. It's not scary although the franchise was never scary in the first place. Toshio seems to look a little too old to play the part. A younger boy would be creepier. Horror veteran Shawnee Smith gives a good death performance but I see nothing else.
