    A fresh and interesting take on the found-footage subgenre. Usually these films are either a heavy hit or a heavy miss for me, because the acting at times can be incredibly unrealistic and the shaky cam is more annoying than engrossing.

    The only film in this series that was a first watch for me, and it was pretty dissapointing.

    The whole film just felt like a bad straight to TV crime drama starring Chris Rock, and Samuel Jackson occasionally making an appearance. Not only was Rock's acting terrible which is bad enough, but there was basically no one to root for because much like Jigsaw, all of the characters were dislikeable.

    I guess the one thing that I could put above…
