28 Weeks Later (2007)

If they ever decided to make a 28 Months Later movie, and followed the same pattern of years between movies, this year should have been the year it should have been done! But it hasn't, so I guess it isn't... shame.

This movie picks up where the last one left off, in a recuperated world, where people are once again gathering together and seeking refuge and everything seems OK.

A lot has happened in 28 weeks, but of course this wouldn't be much of a movie if it didn't all go to hell all the same. That's precisely what it does, and once again the main characters all fight to survive in a world still majorly barren after the zombie apocalypse.

Compared to the previous movie this one is graphically superior, if the first one was somewhat low-budget (or made to look it), this one definitely isn't.

A big difference from the previous movie is that one of the main characters is a kid (the main characters are all new btw, hope the old ones are still living peacefully somewhere in the old country), and though I like the movie overall, I think this aspect reduces my likening a bit. A kid is just... not a strong main character. It's hard for him to be a hero or to be someone I can look up to, or relate to, something which most zombie movies ultimately need to have to leave you satisfied.

But for what it's worth, the actors all do a great job, the filmography is great, the violence is spectacular... in all but the character it outplays the first one by great length. Good watch.

 rated 3/5: not bad

28 Weeks Later (2007)

Six months after the rage virus was inflicted on the population of Great Britain, the US Army helps to secure a small area of London for the survivors to repopulate and start again. But not everything goes according to plan.

The first time you see the quarantine you know it's serious. Good introduction - albeit with pretty sporadic and regular-looking glimpses of the city in its various states over the course of these 28 weeks before it.

But the zombies are gone - dead from starvation, and it's time for a new start. Only of course, as far as new starts go, they never really go as you'd like them to. And this is no exception.

Jeremy Renner and Idris Elba btw - I didn't realize they were both in this one last time I watched this! You learn more and more. And Harold Perrineau! Who I really thought was Chris Rock.

And what a savage movie this is. It's hard to beat the classics but this definitely makes a run for it.

I wonder if the first wasn't even better, but this is definitely still one of the better zombie apocalypse moves out there. The smoke screens. The stadium. The darkness and desperation, and the merciless intro... humanity at its worst, maybe that's what they capture here.

Love, but fear, and weakness, and on the other side of that spectrum discipline, and strength, and all that killing, all for naught...

 rated 4.5/5: almost awesome
