    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. What a disappointment ! The first movie of the saga left me breathless. It had well constructed action, a good choice of the style with the camera, and some story behind... the second one kept up and added a couple of details... but this one is a complete failure and a joke. B movie (or Z) exuding all over. Predictable, without style, and no story at all when it is supposed to be the genesis. Seriously this is the genesis ? But one thing above all: you have to maintain a criteria and stick to it the entire film, if the zombies can run and be fast, then be it !! What you cannot do is make them slow and clumsy whenever it suits you, that's called cheating. There's is laws and science in all that zombie stuff or I believe so. Expand

    This movie is no real rec movie. It sucks in so many ways. No motion sickness camera style in a rec movie?! This is a really bad trashmovie with some very good splatter-effects. Okay and it has rec in the name.
    I loved the frist rec but this one sucks a lot mot than rec 2.

    Why do movies so bad, absurd and ridiculous? It is so bad that I laughed at her at the movies! This very poorly made. It's funny until the 20 th minute, after those 20 minutes seemed to have run out of budget or who bought the script in a flea market.

    This movie is a joke, the first one and second at least tried to be more matured and serious about the whole "infected genre", REC 3 is like 100 movies out there with nothing to offer. There is no story, the acting are just laughable, poor dialogue this movie is so ridiculous that at some point some actors use medieval armour, my god!! Total garbage.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Ok, the first movie was good, have some mistakes but have this little touch that do that people have much scare moments, after we watch REC 2, and have other mistakes, but happen the same case, and now [REC] 3: Genesis, and what happen? Is an awful movie, don't have the same style that the other two [REC] movies had, the result of this movie is a big disaster, have much comic moments -or the move is really bad, and I'm laughing ?- the trama have a potential for be an amazing movie, but the development is really terrible. The performances are bad, extremly bad. [REC] 3: Genesis is the worst chapter of this saga. Expand

    Rec (1) and Rec 2 were scary.
    But this one is really not.
    Why is it just sometimes a found footage movie?
    It's just a trashy slasher, with some funny moments.

    Paco Plaza deja un lado el terror, lo bizarro, el gore, el suspenso y horror que tenían las antecesoras REC, esta vez nos deja una sátira, parodia o "comedia con humor negro" horrible y decepcionante.

    De verdad no puedo creer que esta película sea una secuela de la primera y excelente REC, porque es una completa estupidez. Llamándose a sí misma una película de terror, es mas bien una comedia, pues todo el drama y suspenso que intenta crear es algo para morirse de la risa. Está mal dirigida, el guion es extremadamente ridículo, y a pesar de que la actuación es relativamente buena,De verdad no puedo creer que esta película sea una secuela de la primera y excelente REC, porque es una completa estupidez. Llamándose a sí misma una película de terror, es mas bien una comedia, pues todo el drama y suspenso que intenta crear es algo para morirse de la risa. Está mal dirigida, el guion es extremadamente ridículo, y a pesar de que la actuación es relativamente buena, interpreta a unos personajes muy mal ideados. No sé por qué el director de esta película, siendo uno de los pocos en la actualidad que de verdad lograba hacer una película de zombis bien hecha, decidió rebajar su reputación de esta forma.
    Además, fue abandonado el estilo de grabación que prácticamente identificaba a las anteriores REC. Dejó de ser una grabación en primera persona para convertirse en una película común y corriente, y eso es algo que no se les puede perdonar.
    Por último, no le dieron continuación al final de la segunda. En la película no hubo ninguna explicación de lo que estaba sucediendo y por qué estaba sucediendo, todo simplemente fue zombis, sangre, acción, matanza y muchas cosas sin sentido, sin permitirme por la más mínima probabilidad tomarme esta película seriamente.

    [REC] 3 Genesis is a prequel to the first two "[REC]" movies, but that doesn't much matter. You don't need to have seen them to enjoy this film, which provides fresh blood for a tired genre.

    With slapstick smothering the scares, [REC 3] is further marred by a plot in which the muted Catholicism of its antecedents is turned up to full blast.

    It's the same-old flesh-chewing. Like vampires, this genre is getting deadly.
