Spanish horror sequel. Picking up the action 15 minutes after the point where the original 2007 film left off, the plot follows a medical officer and a SWAT team armed with video cameras as they enter the quarantined apartment building in an attempt to neutralise the situation. They are at first relieved to find that the mysterious and deadly virus appears to be carried in the blood and not in the air - but in order to 'cure' the infected blood they must first locate those who have become possessed...

This is a little more hohum than horror. It doesnt have to be believeable but you have to dispend disbelief...
The previous film was original (till the ending) - this slides too easily in and out of too many genres tropes :- a bastard offspring of Aliens, Carrie, Contagion and 28 Weeks Later; rests a little too heavily on the laurels of REC - and at times falls dangerously close to parody. (The "revelations" concerning a number of main and peripheral characters are not very interesting, the "reason" for the outbreak to me is not affecting enough.)
Having criticised so much - I still like the pace and a couple of the setpieces are great. Just dont expect the thrillride of the first one.
Anyway, the first question fans of REC will be asking is is the sequel as good? With a big smile on my face, I'm happy to say yes. Beginning almost immediately after the first film ended, part two starts with a SWAT team and a doctor entering the apartment building to find out what happened to the camera crew, firemen and people who lived in the building. It's not long before they discover they're knee deep in the brown stuff and things are going to get worse.
I did wonder if the handheld camera issue would be a problem. After all, there was a reason for it in the original film. However, rest assured it's justified in the sequel and becomes almost as much of a character as the SWAT members and the infected. We see through their eyes and there are several moments in which it seems the infected are coming for the viewer, such is the effect of the camerawork. I was also pleased by some very nice touches - spotting the people from the first film who are now infected, the splashes of blood in the same places as before, and the use of an exit/entrance briefly mentioned in REC.
While some of the mystery from REC concerning the cause of the outbreak has been cleared up, there are still plenty of questions left and still plenty for us to enjoy in what is one of the best horror sequels I have ever seen.
`Rec 2' is an example of the rare occurrence when more of the same is a good thing. The same sets, the same style, similar scares, but they all still work brilliantly. Even after two films you are still a little unsure of the truth and never really see the infected people. Bathed in darkness directors Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza use flashes of fear and the audiences' imagination to distil terror. The opening act is a brilliant mix of action and horror as the capable police officers slowly uncover the truth, only to discover they wish they never did. It is the slightly limp second act which prevents the film from being as strong as the first. A group of youngsters are introduced as a parallel storyline that just proves to be boring.
With a lot of the film being shot via handheld cameras, the HD should not work, but it does. The BluRay highlights the scary sound effects and gives the grainy imagery a depth. Balaguero and Plaza are the people who should be given the most praise for the film, and the series. They have stuck to telling a simple story well and leaving the audience wanting more.
The single disc opens to four feature trailers before going to main menu offering play, scene selection, set up [5.1, 2.0 and English subtitles on/off] and bonus features [what you’ve never seen, extended and deleted scenes]. Play takes you to the very final scene of Rec 1. This time around there is another sub story as we follow a small group of individuals who manage to gain access to the building. As we watch their story unfold, it links in with what you have just witnessed from the point of view of the SWAT team.
This filming and approach is more planned and you actually get more of a sense of panic in this one from the start, but the reactions of the SWAT team are –lets say, unprofessional at best. The other irritation is the use of muted sound to illustrate confusion and such like, in this its overplayed and often inappropriate [lose a *]. That said I did enjoy this just as much as number one and for entertainment and jumpy moments, this has to be a ***** but it’s just a smidge below the original.
