[REC] 3 Genesis Reviews

Jeff Beck

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.

As well as ditching the handheld gimmick and serious tone, Genesis has also jettisoned the spirit that made the first two films so riotously entertaining.

If you can't get enough of people having their heads sawn in half, this may entertain.

Well, bite me, if this movie didn't suck.

A prequel that trades the scratchy terror of its predecessors for hit-and-miss body shocks.

acknowledges the increasing stalenesss of 'found footage', but fails to find anything new with which to replace this format, while also jettisoning the genuine frights of the earlier [REC] films...

An avalanche of unadventurous nastiness and moldy meta gags.

Beyond the basic idea and the few clever gems that spawn from it, [REC] 3 doesn't improve on the formula much.

Like vampires, this genre is getting deadly.

Somebody alert the advertising watchdog. There's a DOA zombie flick doing the rounds pretending to be a [REC] movie.

For all its gleeful limb-severing, offal-scoffing and chainsaw-wielding, this disco mirrorball of a movie scatters ideas in all directions, rather than focusing the spotlight on what counts - the scares.

This decision to quarantine the shaky camerawork to the pre-credits exposition at once comes as an admission that the handheld cinematography is a gimmick and marks a slide into more conventional (i.e. dull) territory.

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.

Paco Plaza's third REC film follows the same format as the rest, but the early franchise frights are missing.

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

With slapstick smothering the scares, "[REC 3]" is further marred by a plot in which the muted Catholicism of its antecedents is turned up to full blast.

If a fourth entry wasn't already in the works, [Rec] 3: Genesis could have easily represented the nail in the franchise's coffin.

Doesn't come close to earning the revery of its moniker. This is one misbegotten deviation from the norm not worth repeating.
