Did You Know?

The directors were very keen to give the film the additional vibe of a first person shooter video game, where the audience feels personally drawn into the action onscreen. For that reason, the barrel of a gun is in the foreground of a lot of shots.See more »
Factual errors: The teenagers' video camera imprints the battery level indicator on the recording. Video cameras do not record the battery level with the video, they just display it through the viewfinder for the person operating the camera to see.See more »

A highly anticipated sequel that (mostly) delivers., 23 July 2011
Author: lewiskendell from United States

Not as cohesive or frightening, as the first REC (which is one of my favorite modern horror movies), but still a tense and thrilling horror ride, more often than not. This is a direct continuation of the original, and happens in and around the same apartment building on the same night. 

REC 2 takes the supernatural elements of the first movie and further explores them, which sets it apart from some similar zombie-type films. No complaints from me there, I enjoyed the expansion of the overall mythos and the added backstory/explanation for some of the people and events of the first film. On the negative side, I did find the new characters introduced in this one to be almost universally unlikable and annoying. Did that ruin the movie? No, but I definitely cared about the well-being and survival of these people less than those that came before. There's also a slight feeling of repetition that comes with using the same location again, but that's understandable considering the direct plot continuance.  

REC 2 is basically more of the same, so if you enjoyed the first, there's no real reason why you shouldn't see this. It's not quite up to the same quality, but it's worth checking out to see the interesting direction the story goes in.
