As a fan, I was disappointed. But you will probably still enjoy it.
As a fan of the series, I felt that they took a step backward with this latest iteration; some of the creative decisions were questionable at best, and while the cast was competent enough, some of their actions throughout the film were downright moronic.
That being said, the film still retains a great atmosphere, and some of the funnier "scares" are very effective. Hiring ILM to do the SFX was genius, and the action itself was very well thought out. Not the best, and possibly the worst of the series, but you could still do much worse at the movies this year.
Stay after the credits to catch a sneak peek at the Latino spin-off, focusing on Santeria. Looks to be better in almost every regard.
