[ REC ] 4: Apocalypse ( [ REC ] 4: Apocalipsis ) 
When This Boats a Rockin'...
2.5/4 stars

The (probable) final film in the REC series ditches the found footage aspect that made the original such a genre-defining film. Yet despite being more like a standard horror film, it's still better than the disappointing third entry. It helps that Manuela Velasco is back - as REC 4 seemingly picks up almost immediately after the events of REC 2. Having being rescued from the apartment, she finds herself on a tanker in the middle of the ocean. A group is researching a cure - knowing that failure (or a breach) pretty much means certain death. Guess what happens? The starts off slow - introducing characters and stories - but quickly picks up leading to a gory, action-packed finale. There are plenty of nods to other horror films and although the shooting style is a bit cramped, I think it adds to the appeal. If you have been a fan of the series, it offers up a satisfying conclusion (unless we get more). None of the sequels can capture the unique aspect of the original, but, as a whole, it's a decent series.
