Decent sequel to the original. Had lots of action, some good scenes, Kate Winslet was probably the most convincing and the best acting out of the entire cast, the movie did have some cheesy fighting where i found myself laughing a bit at times; also Beatrice running through open fields getting shot time and time again by 12-14 people and not actually getting shot is a bit unreal. I can see in a simulation but not in real life. Oh well. it was good for what it was. Lets face it Shailene Woodley is no Jennifer Lawrence you don't care for her character half as much and Divergent is no Hunger Games.
The idea of this movie was good, archaeologists lost in a creepy pyramid, but it never really goes anywhere, the dialogue is a bit ridiculous and can't be taken serious, this movie quickly falls flat once it starts showing everything, by the end you kind of want to laugh....sometimes less is more....especially if you aren't going to have realistic looking effects, it usually then goes cheesy. This "found footage" trend also needs to die off, when it works it's effective but it normally takes away from a movie, what started out fresh and unique with The Blair Witch Project in 1999, a decade of movies later it has run it's course. Nothing your missing out on by not seeing this movie.
A bit underwhelming, CGI was hit and miss. Channing Tatum was surprisingly decent in a more serious role, gave me a look into him playing a more believable Gambit. Mila Kunis did alright.......what was the movie about? I don't really remember....what i do remember is Channing Tatum running around with his shirt off for a good part of the movie...gawd he has a nice body....
This movie was filmed in France/Romania, it is sub-titled in english. It is a smart, creepy, anxiety-driven suspense horror movie! Apparently I am scared of being terrorized by unknowns things while alone in the dark, running away from something that you can't see, hearing noises and being taunted. This movie; like The Strangers is all psychological. It was full of intense moments and once it starts it doesn't let up. The movie opens with a mother and daughter that almost hit someone on the road, they end up getting killed by "them". In the same area these people terrorize a couple that lives near by. (Wrong place at the wrong time). This movie was similar to The Strangers method but the outcome is totally different, and goes in many different area's, starting in their house, moving outside into the woods, and eventually into an underground tunnel. This movie plays with your mind not showing you much at all (until near the end). I'm not sure how I never saw this movie until now when it came out in 2007/2008.
REC.4 brings back Manuela Velasco "Angela" from REC.1 and REC.2, she is rescued and brought to a research facility on a ship, she is carrying the virus now (like we saw at the end of REC.2) and they are trying to develop a serum to cure it. There are a few surprising twists though to keep you guessing....It was a solid movie overall, it drops the found footage part all together, which is totally fine by me, the movie does tie in the side-story of REC.3 which focused on a couple's wedding day where the virus spreads to the guests, the only survivor (the mother of the groom from REC.3 is in this movie.) These movie's are high anxiety, high tension, gory and fun! Spanish horror directors know how to make a good horror movie, I'll give you that. The infected are always running at you full out and their are creepy infected monkey's flying out of cages and running loose attacking people also.
