So, my copy of REC 2
I popped it into the DVD player, and... discovered there were no English subtitles.
I could have limped though it if it was in French, but I don't habla espanol at all. So, needless to say, it was a pretty confusing movie--especially towards the end, when they seemed to be randomly switching back and forth between nightvision and normal light.
I will say the visuals were quite good, and made interesting use of video effects and frame-in-frame. The periodic explosions of violence were quite exciting, and the film employed an intriguing non-linear structure. Think of a mash-up of Aliens
, The Blair Witch Project
, 28 Days Later
, Pulp Fiction
, and The Exorcist
, and you may have an idea of what REC 2
I am looking forward to the Region 1 DVD release, when I can finally find out exactly what happened. Until then--stay away from the all-region DVD, unless you speak Spanish.
You can at least sync it up on your computer.
