Out of principal I generally will say the American version of any film is better no matter who made it first. Anyone who doesn’t hate freedom and bald eagles would have to agree. It’s a fact. But after watching “Quarantine”, the American version of the Spanish film “[Rec]”, I had to say I was impressed. Namely it didn’t have Jennifer Carpenter sniffling in a camera for 90 minutes. Queue the fat guy screaming GOAL!
And now just to rub it in our faces the Spaniards have gone ahead and made a follow up that looks really kick ass and has been getting great reviews. “[Rec] 2” picks up where the first film left off as medical officer and a SWAT team outfitted with video cameras are sent into the sealed off apartment to control the situation.
The trailer for the movie has hit the net and it’s got subtitles, and they’re in English. So that’s kind of like a victory for Uncle Sam. Ok not really but until a US release date is set it’s the best we’re going to do.
