After watching the third installment, it felt like the franchise is dead and they have completely ruined it. but surprisingly enough the creators understood their massive mistake and got back on course with the final chapter.
Again, just like in part 3 everything looks more professional, more of a ''Hollywood'' style, if i may. They chose to move away from their ''homemade'' horror niche into the mainstream, which was not such a massive fail in comparison to part 3, which was utterly atrocious. The original main character, who started the series off is reintroduced, which is already a massive plus, since people have already grown to like her awesome performances in part 1. This time action takes place on a ship and takes more of an action movie kind of a route instead of its original shaky, thrilling and scary setting. They opt for more fights and bloody scenes, instead of jump scares and suspense, which was not horrible in this case, but it took a way the original feeling the first two parts gave us.
Altogether, the final installment explained quite a lot, everything we have seen before came together, was a little out in the open and blatant, but still a massive improvement from part 3. It has been announced it is the final chapter, but the creators left it very easy for them to continue this series, if they wanted to, with a very open ending with a lot of future possibilities. So, perhaps we are going to see REC 5 after all?
