Ratings & Reviews

  1. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Ring

    The flat and static lead heroine is never given more than a single dimension, with nearly the whole movie consisting of her just investigating, and Ring isn't urgent enough in horror to be gripping. This lack of a character/dramatic arc makes it akin to a journalistic procedural, rather than anything else. Nakata's dread-laced atmosphere and climax is effective enough despite the thinness, but it's a miss as a whole.

  2. Fabiha's rating of the film Ring

    The key to any good horror film is ambiguity.

  3. NUGA's rating of the film Ring

    Even though it's based on a book, the movie creates its own personality, focusing more on a straight-on horror movie instead of the more satirical view the source partakes, and is succeeds within the horror genre primarily because of the great directing and cinematography. That being said, "Ringu" hold the viewer's hands as if targeted at a general American public (ouch).

  4. Tibulle85's rating of the film Ring

    (ReVuKekparsurleweb) Si le film n'est sans doute pas aussi flippant au revisionnage, force est tout de même de constater d'indéniables qualités: de bons acteurs principaux; un récit bien structuré, autour d'une enquête, ce qui maintient l'intérêt tout du long; surtout, sa construction en crescendo, avec un climax qui m'avait tout simplement collé à mon siège de cinéma il y a de cela fort longtemps. Un incontournable!

  6. FISCHER's rating of the film Ring

    Une idée de départ originale, hélas galvaudée dans des réalisations ultérieures... www.cinefiches.com

  7. ΞRIC B∆D TASTΞ's rating of the film Ring

    now i have seen the original as well. it was more a thriller than a horror & must say, i like this version more.

  8. jenstor's rating of the film Ring

    i liked the gore verbinski version more and thats just that

  9. anarresti's rating of the film Ring

    Quite different from the American adaptation. Good storytelling.

  10. Aida's rating of the film Ring

    Low cost horror .. the obligation of a strict psychological economy to make the mundane and cheap scary. Telephones, VHS tapes, girls with long black hair. An artifact from the horror chain email generation.

  11. DenoResandono's rating of the film Ring

    If the filmmaker put more mystery elements in its plot and have same amount as its horror elements, IMO, it would be a great horror/mystery movie. The final scene when Sadako crawled out from TV is pretty creepy...

  12. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Ring

    2-3. Um, it definitely maintains suspense the whole way through. I think a chunk of it falls under the curse (no pun intended) that sometimes befalls Japanese horror in that it's more sad than scary. But there are frightening moments, and I think it's built on an intriguing central metaphor; likening the media to a sea that draws one in and grounding that in the character was an interesting idea.

  13. Bram Vroonland's rating of the film Ring

    I decided to watch Ringu the other day. Afterwards I decided I shouldn't have.

  14. vxpl's rating of the film Ring

    this was too easy to watch. plot is good but realization is weak. not scary at all, no twists. characters seemed apathetic

  21. Anthony Davies's rating of the film Ring
