Where the first [REC] was a jump-and-scare flick that put you in the victim's point of view, [REC]2 takes things a little further.

Not as fresh or frightfully exciting as the first film, but certainly scary, occasionally inventive and almost always enjoyable.

The film gets a lot of mileage from its concept of seeing things only through the soldiers' helmet-mounted cameras, but the plot also develops in some surprising directions.

It doesn't quite maximise the potential of all of its ideas, but it nonetheless provides a horror experience that's up there with the best of recent years...

Not as good as its predecessor, but only a notch below making it an enjoyable and honorable sequel.

Rather than trying to up the ante laid down by its predecessor, it simply picks up where that film left off (at the precise moment it left off, in fact), and continues doing many of the things that movie did so well.

Fast and violent, with feral demon kids and a surplus of imaginative restatements of the genre's best-loved clichés.

It's more of the same, with an Exorcist spin, which isn't inherently a bad thing.
July 14, 2010
Using the same frenetic pacing and POV shakycam style, [REC] 2 tries to go bigger -- but this time, the gimmicks can seem forced. Still, there's plenty to like...

Approaches the rarified dream logic of the best otherworldly horror films. Call it meta or post-modern or whatever, but once this sucker hits nightvision mode, all bets are off.
July 10, 2010
Offers a bevy of first-person scares and moments rife with tension.

It's still fun, but you feel more like you're watching a movie than taking part in one.

Balagueró and Plaza really know what they're doing.

The shaky camera work (and explosive gore) can get literally nauseating. But when the characters' cameras run low, and the screen goes black? That's the scariest thing of all.

Unlike so many sequels, [REC] 2 builds nicely on the ideas introduced first time around; in particular, the nature and history of the disease, only touched on in the original, are explored much more fully here to chilling effect.

A perfectly respectable horror film, but sometimes it's better to leave a good thing undisturbed.

The mayhem, efficiently maintained for a just-right 84 minutes, makes [REC] 2 strictly for horror fans.

The new film manages to retain the claustrophobic tension of the original while deftly juggling multiple viewpoints.

[REC] 2 smartly picks up right where the first one left off, and takes little time to reestablish momentum.

Quibbles aside, [Rec]2's biggest flaw is that it's not [Rec].
