Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

""Zombieland" and possibly "Shaun of the Dead" aside, this isn't a genre with a lot of life in it."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Like vampires, this genre is getting deadly."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Offers some dark laughs, bloody kills, and moderate thrills."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
"...a garden-variety zombie movie that boasts few attributes designed to separate it from its legion of competitors."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Even when fully acknowledging its flaws and underdeveloped ideas, one can still find loads of fun rampaging through the film."
‑ Matt Donato, We Got This Covered
"Plaza throws in more than enough ludicrous touches of his own to grab viewers by their arteries and never let go."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"It's hard to maintain dread while the filmmakers are so obviously grinning at their own cleverness."
‑ Tasha Robinson, AV Club
"Well, bite me, if this movie didn't suck."
‑ Paul Chambers, Movie Chambers
"A bit short on original ideas, but at 81 minutes, it's difficult to say that it's too long. Some may feel that the humor betrays the mood of first two movies, and that dropping the reality style was a mistake, but I disagree."
‑ Eric Melin, Scene-Stealers.com
"Beyond the basic idea and the few clever gems that spawn from it, [REC] 3 doesn't improve on the formula much."
‑ Rob Vaux, Mania.com
"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."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Giddy shots of the undead slogging through a decimated party-scape materialize the decadence and instability of upper-crust family life, even as groom and (pregnant) bride prepare to give birth to another generation of the Spanish elite."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Village Voice
"Like with the previous films, you can expect lots of blood and gruesome kills, but after a while, you come to the realization that the filmmakers aren't doing anything new with the series, turning this into a rather perfunctory exercise."
‑ Jeff Beck, Examiner.com
"Just because a movie is subtitled doesn't mean it's any more imaginative or better crafted than domestic films."
‑ Dan Lybarger, KC Active
"Something of a disappointment, but serious genre fans and anyone who thrills to the idea of seeing cannibal zombies ruin a perfectly lovely wedding will check it out anyway"
‑ Maitland McDonagh, Film Journal International
