120+ Movies: [Rec] 2

120+ Movies of 2011

[Rec] 2[Rec] 2 (14/08/11)

The action continues from [Rec], with the medical officer and a SWAT team outfitted with video cameras are sent into the sealed off apartment to control the situation.

[Rec] 2 goes somewhere I never thought it would go. I didn’t find it quite as gripping as the first outing, but for the most part, I did enjoy it.

It does literally start off where the first film ended. Though it looks like they’ve had a slightly bigger budget for the sequel. Marginally. Sadly, there was no old zombie lady running at the camera holder this time. That made me laugh last time! No moments like that. Which saddened me.

The kids in the film truly annoyed the hell out of me. I could have done without all of their scenes.

Overall, not as good as the first, but still watchable. It’s under 90 minutes long, which does mean nothing drags and they do get to the point fairly quickly.
Rating: 3/5
