Review: [REC]

This came highly recommended to me, but I was underwhelmed. For those familiar with the genre, there is nothing new here. Aside from a couple of moments of tense suspense, this is strictly by-the-numbers and quite unremarkable.

Characters are paper thin, hand-held 'real' camerawork is all over the show, and the dialogue and plot are just plain bad. We get a lot of shouting, a lot of zombies rushing around yelling 'blergh!', and worst, some laughable exposition from a handy tape recorder.

Above average, perhaps, for fright value. But all these 5-stars I see below are missing the mark. All you pant-sh*tters should be embarrassed.
