Paco Plaza you have impressed me. This movie might be a little predictable but it's so self-aware and humorous that I can't believe people don't like it. As the previous comment says, you can really see the early Jackson influence. He took the same ingredients that made his first film great and turned it into something fresh and fun instead of letting it get tired with yet another boring handheld sequel.
I figured asking for another great REC sequel was asking too much. Just barely has enough to do with the first 2 to be even called a sequel. The "zombies" aren't even the same, as they go from the slow stupid type to the brilliant running type, depending on how convenient it would be for the scene. This is just gore for gore's sake and lacks any depth the first films had.
I'm getting married next month, a week before Halloween, so this was pretty entertaining for multiple reasons. But, not really a fan of how this tied in to the franchise. Might have been okay-ish on its own, especially knowing that maybe 2% of it carried over to Apocalypse.
This movie doesn't deserve to have the "[REC]" title. What an absolute mess! It just doesn't work with the previous two films and they decided to switch to regular camera work which was a huge mistake. The whole point of the [REC] series is that it was part of the found-footage genre. Completely ruined the feel of the film. I'm surprised I sat through all 80mins. Utterly dismal with no redeeming qualities whatsoever.
Another great film in the REC saga. Paco Plaza proves he can do it alone even if that means dropping the found footage device and moving to a traditional style. Plenty of nods to other films, early Peter Jackson, ROTLD3, etc. Edge of your seat horror and still plenty of laughs. Hollywood (despite the remakes) can't touch this. Waiting for the grand finale.
