A bit short on original ideas, but at 81 minutes, it's difficult to say that it's too long. Some may feel that the humor betrays the mood of first two movies, and that dropping the reality style was a mistake, but I disagree.

Even when fully acknowledging its flaws and underdeveloped ideas, one can still find loads of fun rampaging through the film.

Plaza throws in more than enough ludicrous touches of his own to grab viewers by their arteries and never let go.

This thing has a pulse. It may be pushing blood through a gushing jugular but it's beating.

One of the best horror movies of the year. Granted it's been a crap year for the genre so far, but a compliment is still a compliment.

Giddy shots of the undead slogging through a decimated party-scape materialize the decadence and instability of upper-crust family life, even as groom and (pregnant) bride prepare to give birth to another generation of the Spanish elite.

Plaza sends the franchise into yet another direction with this lean, scary zombie thriller, punctuating scenes with both humour and emotion

Oddball comedy instantly kills zombie scares - the neck-ripping is bloody but boring - leaving you clinging to the fun moments when director Paco Plaza nails it.

Presents more ripped flesh and spilt guts but in a new, sunnier setting - a wedding reception at a sprawling country mansion.

Slicker, sillier, bloodier, [REC]3 is a very different beast from its predecessors - and it works a treat.

While [REC] lacks any real potency in the scare department, it's a wild ride that keeps the franchise at the forefront of the zombie genre.

Extraordinarily entertaining, cheeky yet grim, and enjoyably stabilized, Genesis is fantastic horror hellraising, while once again pushing the series in a promising new direction.

If you recognize...that Plaza is going for something along the lines of Freddy vs. Jason and The Cabin in the Woods, you'll cheer for this well done bit of meta macabre.

Like with the previous films, you can expect lots of blood and gruesome kills, but after a while, you come to the realization that the filmmakers aren't doing anything new with the series, turning this into a rather perfunctory exercise.

...a garden-variety zombie movie that boasts few attributes designed to separate it from its legion of competitors.

Just because a movie is subtitled doesn't mean it's any more imaginative or better crafted than domestic films.

"Zombieland" and possibly "Shaun of the Dead" aside, this isn't a genre with a lot of life in it.
