The Ring (2002)
10/10
Does what it set out to achieve
7 March 2004
Great film. It does exactly what it set out to achieve - scare the living hell out of you. If you want to sit around the house and be scare to go upstairs alone, and have your heart racing at every second sound, then this film does it for you. No gore, no tacky blood, just pure and simple scare. Relatively unknown actors also do their part to keep the film flowing, and the music score is what you would expect from a horror film. Great film for late night viewing, effect is doubled. And if you rent the DVD, bet you don't watch the 15min film !

Relaxing to watch on a Sunday afternoon
3 January 2004
If you are looking for one of those films that will fill-in a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon, then this is it. The plot is pretty thin, but there are some well known faces that carry off the roles well, and will even give you a few laughs.

Most of the time watching the film, you spend thinking "was life really like that in the 80's - I thought we were so cool".

Anyhow, the plot centres around a time machine and a couple of office workers trying to use it to get rid of their boss (by making sure he was never born).

Boring
28 May 2003
The most boring film I have ever seen. I watched it because of Carrey's ability to turn anything into fun.. I waited and waited.. it never came. Simply awful. Do everything you can to avoid this film.

Childish
28 May 2003
We spent years growing up with Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back.. and waited for the super finale. Then Spielberg releases this junk clearly aimed at an audience 8-12 yrs. Cute cuddly creatures beating up on trained soldiers?? Gimme a break.
