Like someone already wrote on here Rings 2017 is the untimely end of the American branch of "The Ring". And that may actually not be such a bad thing...
This franchise killer features a cast of lame characters, that you hope will fall prey to Samara rather quickly before their annoying screen presence becomes too much to bear. Sadly they mostly last all the way till the ludicrous end.
Rings 2017 is based on a poor script with a re-imagined story. Thus this production is a rather dumbed down Reboot of the Gore Verbinsky classic.
The camera here is flat, the music doesn't fit, the editing rushed and uninspired. The below average acting in Rings 2017 leaves much to be desired.
Even if this was just an American TV re-imagination of The Ring, it would still be a bad production by those standards.
Bottom line: if you like The Ring, you better stick to the Japanese films. Samara is finally dead, much to the delight of her older Japanese sister, Sadako Yamamura. Good riddance!
