Being the third part of a trilogy, I am not too surprised by the amount of people who don't like this movie. As concluding entries go, it is quite typical. The feeling of the movie is completely different than the first two. The story seems to have very little to do with the previous movies and the parts that do seem to be taped onto the rest of the story.
Despite all of this, I actually found myself enjoying this movie more than the previous ones. Unlike many Japanese horror movies, this one had a quick pace and comically bad effects.
For me, it was enjoyable seeing the students freaking out over getting the text messages and doing all they could to prevent their fellow students from forwarding the messages to themselves. The story involving the antagonist was slightly flimsy, but this is to be expected in horror movies.
I won't say much more about it. But I was thoroughly entertained. If you watch this movie assuming it is the typical closing chapter of a horror movie trilogy, you can enjoy it for those reasons. I, for one, loved it.
