Could have been worse. Slow and mostly took itself overly serious. It was good when the blood finally started spraying, and there were some cute references to the originals. As a standalone movie, it was probably better than the first one, but certainly not as good as Evil Dead II or Army of Darkness.
I've only seen the first [REC] and the American remake, Quarantine. I thought the coolest thing about them was the robotic camera rig (seen in the DVD bonus footage). All that automation put in place just to simulate handheld shaky-cam. So bizarre.
"The trouble with being a ghost writer or artist is that you must remain anonymous without credit.
If one wants the credit, one has to cease being a ghost and become a leader or innovator." — Bob Kane
