There are always exceptions to everything, however, and [REC]2 is an example of a sequel that I enjoyed thoroughly. It manages to be non-stop action but without skimping on story at all. There is plenty of eerie atmosphere and a few jump scares. As a sequel should do, it gives us information about what happened to characters that survived the original and also furthered the story, filling in some of the mystery around the first story.
In [REC]2, we follow a group of SWAT team members as they are sent into a quarantined apartment building where a viral outbreak has spread and killed most, turning residents into crazed, violent lunatics. The virus is described as a derivation of rabies. That's about all you should know about the plot going in. I don't want to ruin it for you. Let me say, though, that there are some surprises regarding the virus and it's origins as well as some of the people trying to get in and out of the building and their motives. However, this film does not hinge on plot twists, which is refreshing.
The style in which this film was shot is terrific. It's done in much the same way as the first, only BETTER, as they improved their techniques. It's easier to watch, with less shaky, jerking camera and there's more light so you can tell what's happening easier. These things make it scarier and more intense.Read more ›
Seriously, the folks who made this move should be locked up - how can someone think up such horrible, scary stuff... Fantastically, scary.
I mean scary on another level... dang...
I love zombie/sickness movies but, this one w/ the religious slant to it just creeped me out!!! Acting was fantastic - just like the 1st movie and the priest in this one - was just great... the casting was perfect... wow...
I knew better than to watch this flick but, I had to... someday, I'll probably watch it again... I don't know if you can make a scarier movie...
If you liked the first film, you will enjoy this, but I have to say, considering the first half hour of the film moved in the same way REC did, as well as sort-of re-establishing REC's story, seeing REC before seeing REC 2 isn't a must. Still a great film and gets 5 stars from me.

Picks up right where the first films ends. Sequels are almost never as good as the original, but I have to say I think this one is even better than the original.Published 2 months ago by Amazon Customer

Sequels can be a funny thing for a stand alone movie, sometimes they can enhance a existing story and sometimes they can ruin the flavor of the original. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Jonathan Echevarria
