HBO First Look The Making Of Ring 2 is a 13 minute featurette and contains some of the footage from the previous featurettes (so lazy to repeat extras). It's very much a typical promo that you'd see on Sky between movies to hype it up. It's not really revealing and everyone seems to think this is an impressive movie, but that's typical for the most part. Deleted and Alternate Scenes lasts for 10 minutes and is a reel of, uncannily, deleted and alternate scenes, which for my money make sense to have been cut but then as it's not gripping stuff to begin with, doesn't say much. Finally we have trailers for “Red Eye”, the Wes Craven movie and “The Ring” which makes no sense as you've probably seen or got it if you are watching this.
Hollywood strikes again, not only producing a lacklustre sequel but dragging down the director of the original Japanese movies with this travesty. Sure, there are worse movies, but it's still not going to detract from the fact that this is a total let down. There were so many more ways that they could have gone, heck even more of the same thing from the first movie with different main characters would have been better. Yet again, stick to original Hollywood release, or better yet, get the original Ringu trilogy.
