I absolutely hate found footage films. That being said...I don't hate this one.
Ever since the debut of Blair Witch, which is pretty much the only movie that captured the found footage genre well, I've tried to stay away from these types of movies. It just gives me motion sickness and it's nauseating. Also I find that I prefer normal storytelling rather than the POV perspective.
But having taken a chance on LA CUEVA, because I do enjoy movies such as Descent, I'm pleasantly surprised with this film. Very realistic and just goes to show human behaviour is all about survival of the smartest. The movie's great in that it makes friends become enemies and humans into beasts. We see that very soon once the cave explorers realizes their lost...and "hungry". It doesn't take long before the battle of the sexes come into play. And the whole concept of befriending an animal and then having to kill it came to my mind during one part of the movie.
Overall, it's a good watch - I'd give 6.5/10. I recommend anyone how usually sneer at found footage films to take a peek...it's a slow beginning but once they hit the cave, they descend pretty quickly.
