I was half surprised. It's just over an hour and a half long but it could do with about 10 minutes filler cut out as it loses focus and makes you drop focus on the film.
The film picks up directly after the events of the first one, which in turn was set however many years after the proper Ring sequel 'Rasen' and the Sadako series to an extent follows one of Rasen's main characters son, Takamori Ando.
So we see a baby being born. It has a demon face. Then we cut to some strange woman in a garden. (I actually have no idea what this was about, and if I missed it, it's because I got bored at points, so please someone explain it to me).
Then five years later, we meet a young girl, Nagi.
Everywhere Nagi goes, someone dies, a cursed clip appears on peoples phones or other electronic devices and kills them.
The main mystery and plot of the film is figuring out if Nagi is there to be warning or causing these deaths. An answer we don't find out until the very end. And when the answer is revealed, it's pretty confusing as it comes out of nowhere.
There's some beautiful imagery in the film, and the story is much better than the first, but it still seems to forget where it's going and goes a bit silly from time to time and of course the 3D gimmick is used way too much.
I'm just hoping that when the book 'S', written by original creator Koji Suzuki is released into English, is better than the film.
I don't really have much other to say than that.
It's worth a one off watch, and the shame is that you have to make it through the ridiculously awful first film first.
So in all,
