What Happened?
17 February 2017 | by antoniokowatschSee all my reviews

I'm not really sure what I just watched but this was a far cry from the previous two movies. The worst offense that this movie has to atone for is the fact that it wasn't scary. Not even in the slightest sense. Keep in mind that this was supposed to be a Horror movie.

Right from the get-go it was pretty much clear "who would make it out of the movie alive" ["The Chosen One"-trope]. And that's why the whole movie flopped. There was no real danger. The entire movie felt like a "documentary" about the origin story. Also, Samara was barely in the movie, which for the record was the main reason for my disgruntlement.

Final verdict: This movie is more of a filler. It's main purpose is to connect the links from the past to what is yet to come. This may sound wrong but the end of the movie was actually the best part (and it wasn't because the movie ended. It's because we were left with an intriguing cliffhanger. I like that). I remain hopeful for the upcoming movie in the franchise.
