Six months after the horrifying events that terrorized Rachel Keller and her son Aidan, the two have left their home in Seattle to escape the haunting memories of Samara and her cursed videotape, which left so much death in its wake. Moving to the small coastal community of Astoria, Oregon, Rachel and Aidan hope to start fresh. However, Rachel’s resolve quickly turns to dread when evidence at a local crime scene, including an unmarked videotape, seems eerily familiar.
Horror Thriller - Like the original film, this is a horror thriller that depends
largely on atmosphere rather than gore to generate scares. That
said, it is much too intense for young children.

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Below Average The Ring 2 is slickly made garbage - a dull, plodding horror movie that ventures into the realm of idiocy when it isn't busy remaking the first film. This is yet another example of what happens when money, not creativity, drives the production of a sequel.
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average When I say the film defies explanation, that doesn't mean it discourages it. Web sites exist for no other reason than to do the work of the screenwriters by figuring out what it all means.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average As in the first movie, there's a lot to the plot that doesn't make sense if analyzed closely, and, as in the first, the end is particularly implausible.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We collected 122 moviegoer opinions. Not too good. These opinions are quite a bit lower than the original movie received. While that's not uncommon for a sequel, these opinions are too low for me to recommend "The Ring Two" to everyone. If you're a strong horror fan then you could be like one of the nearly half who enjoyed "The Ring Two" and rated it "Very Good" or higher, but it's pretty risky. I would recommend a matinee to reduce your risk. To be fair, the moviegoers who didn't rate it high, for the most part thought it was an average/OK movie since they rated it "Good" and "Fair." So, if an average horror movie is better than no horror movie then "The Ring Two" is for you.
