All in all, I liked Rings (the third movie in the Ring franchise), but there were many questions that went unanswered, so maybe there will be a fourth to help me resolve those. I guess it’s possible that I missed them, too, who knows?
I’ve seen The Ring, but don’t remember the Ring Two, but I’ve probably seen it and wasn’t impressed which is causing the lapse in memory. Rings starts with an exciting scene in an airplane where Carter, played by Zach Roerig, is at the end of his seven days; and getting on a plane seemed like the best thing to do. My assumption, after seeing Rings a few times, is that they are part of the experiment, because he is asked if he made a copy of the video, which he hadn’t. Sorry if that was a spoiler to anyone who hasn’t seen Rings, you should skip to the next paragraph because I have a little more to say about it. There’s an experiment being conducted by Gabriel Brown (I still see Johnny Galecki as David Healy in Roseanne, even with him being on The Big Bang Theory where I see him as David, too.) This experiment is an interesting theory, but I’m 100% buying it.
I liked Rings because it was visually pleasing and didn’t have that over used filter everywhere. The story is interesting and mysterious, but like I said before, I had many questions that didn’t get an answer, and if they don’t make another sequel they won’t be answered. There were some parts that felt awkward like when Julia and Holt meet Galen Burke, which may have been intentional, but with Vincent D’Onofrio being involved…don’t get me wrong, I really liked him on Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
If you happen to be flipping through channels or looking through titles on your streaming service and you come across Rings, give it a shot, you could do a lot worse. I give it 3.5 out of 5 Stars.
