This starts out well enough, but it turns into crap. I didn't expect a copy of the first film, but this lacks the strong sense of dread and despair, and I didn't care about the characters involved. There's a really silly part where a pack of infected are diced up by helicopter blades--this was amusing in GRINDHOUSE but not here. For me this wasn't much of a horror film, but more of an action movie that's pretends to have substance. Fuck this mess.

It was easy to see why Boyle was willing to pass on the torch: Fresnadillo's direction is a perfect emulation of the original which helps to make this movie feel like a seamless continuation, rather than just a sequel. Unfortunately it lacks the substance of the original, if only because everything that can be said has already been said before. Great spooks, great visuals, likeable actors, but not amazing.

unlike 28 days later..., this film is a bit more cut-and-dry in its moral questions. Instead of trying to show that we are our worst enemy, this film is more a grim attempt to disturb and question our military. At the same time, it is a bit too blatant and not nearly as effective as its predecessor.

Imagine if there was an outbreak that made people turn into raging lunatics, raging so much that the camera couldn't follow the action and the only way to tell the story is through millisecond cut editing. I'd probably just avoid that story.

Surprisingly solid sequel. It ups the stakes, holds on to the tight atmosphere and brutal violence and creates just enough political and personal context to keep it all interesting. Doesn't have the vision or originality of the first one but it works well as an entertaining if slightly unambitious action/horror crowd pleaser.

Tedious zombie sequel, filmed and edited in a very annoying style, with thin characters, poor performances, and numerous moments of distinct implausibility. Only point of slight note is the propensity to kill off seeming main characters. If any political allegory is intended, whether to do with Iraq or anything else, it is completely uninteresting.

one thing that isn't being mentioned is the opening scene in this film, which is arguably my favorite from any horror film. SPOILER i always feel an incredible rush of terror when i watch the father running down the hill towards the dock and a wave of zombies crests the ridge behind him, chasing him down. simply brilliant.

The opening was promising as we see a man being forced to abandon his children to a group of zombies or share their fate. had this movie been about this man's guilt it could have been something truly special, but instead it paints the man as an utter craven who must be punished. Add this to dumb military morality, silly "teh government are dicks" morality, stupid characters{especially those damn kids} and cheap scare and gore make it a rather subpar movie.

The lukewarm reception surprises me, as this is only slightly worse than the first, if at all. In many ways, it reminds me of Aliens: the transition from low-key horror to something more high-octane, the inadequacy of the military to contain the threat, and the examination of family structures torn apart. It's exciting and visceral, and remarkably efficient as well.

I give this sequel credit. While Danny Boyle's touch isn't in there, the film's directing still helps it move and never get boring, 28 Weeks later... Has plenty of zombie action and blood as promised and almost all of the characters are likable. While I loved the way 28 Days Later ended, this stands pretty solid on it's own.

Really great movie. The opening scene was marvelous, exciting, fast, ... Actually just like the entire movie. Some scenes are really over the top, but actually that didn't bother me at all. It's a great and unpredictable story and there's a huge tension through the entire film I especially liked. Also the camerapoints that are used are awesome, the filming technique was great, and the acting was superb! I am Legend really doesn't match up with this one.

I almost instantly took to this film without really being able any specific reason why, but in honesty it's quite flawed. However despite being much more idiotic, bloated and contrived than it's predecessor but the familiar feelings of tension and dread still come across clearly. It trails off terribly towards the end as the action scenes deteriorate, ramping up into an increasingly brainless affair, but until then I found it quite entertaining.

Starts out well enough, then turns into a mixture of blair witch project and I-can't-choreograph-so-I-simply-shake-the-camera-till-the-audience-pukes combined with some of the most stupid millitary-in-action scenes I've ever seen. On top of that they completely rip apart the how-a-zombie-behaves they built so well in the first movie. Let's just hope there won't be another sequel.

The first one is a masterpiece, so why does this sequel kinda suck. I guess the plot and tension are just not there, and when the movie thinks there is not enough happening it just throws a bomb at you. (instead of a zombie) Also, if the first movie suffered from one annoying child actor in a side role, this film has two deeply annoying child actors in central roles. In the end you wish the zombies would just eat us all.

This movie picks up where '28 Days Later' ended and after a brief introduction of what went on and happened after '28 days' the film starts off with probably their best scene in the film, very intense and exciting! Furthermore: the score was awesome, acting was quite good (Especially Robert Carlyle), story is a bit predictable. Better then the first movie i thought, this one is a bit faster with more action if i recall '28 Days Later' right, but lacks characterdevelopment. Worth seeing for sure.

Someone once told me that there's no need to separate church and state, saying that only of their combined ashes can a new world be born. 28 Weeks Later thinks along the same lines. In it, the seed of the new hope has to "kill" her upbringing, i.e. everything she has grown to believe about society, in order to have a real chance at rebuilding. Despite having a different director, the movie is eerily similar to its predecessor, from the pseudo-realism right down to the messiness of the script.

Decent sequel -- not great, but the one with best opening sequence ever --, with some truly shocking moments and an incredibly tense climax. So terrifying that it leaves you exhausted with so much slaughter (of humans and infected people). It's also good because of its techniques, that build an absorbing atmosphere: when it ends, you just cannot believe that you are alive after all that visual mayhem.

Sure, it has many weak parts, but there's still some interesting stuff here. The first 10 minutes are simply perfect. Some nifty camera angles, the firebombing was intense, and some good, small moments that stood out. On the other hand it felt rushed and the US military seems to get more antagonist-time than the zombies.

On some level, I enjoyed it; the directing was okay, the premise not too bad, but then the movie gets full of stupidity. People making stupid decisions, stupid effects shots, stupid plot twists, and stupidly obvious foreshadowing. I really wanted to like it, it does some things fairly okay, and honestly don't think it detracts from the original, but it got way too silly much too often.

Well, after stuff like The Last of Us and World War Z, it is a bit bland but for its time it is okay. I have fonder memories of the first movie, this one has some serious plot issues (that urge to make symmetries in stories with the remain family for example). But the main theme music was great, night vision scenes work wonderfully with the eye colors of Potts and the casting was great. Also finally, a guy that runs away from Zombies instead of being heroic... that was a breath of tepid air.

Somehow it was trying to be deeper than mindless action and gore. But that's really all it is once the virus returns. The "story" is just an excuse to bring more weapons and destruction into the action sequences. But it still did the mindless action fairly well.

The opening is strong, despite a bit too much shakycam, and the setting and atmosphere of a deserted UK works well at the outset and throughout. It’s well paced, and compelling, even if it’s somewhat frustrating and a little nihilistic overall. Robert Carlyle is great value for money here…perhaps slightly less scary than Begbie in Trainspotting, though. A decent sequel, all things considered.

Opens with a host of intriguing situations, alas none of which are satisfyingly developed, this flick deciding to go with the fast and furious approach of racing from scene to scene. Then the implausibilities start to rack up, eventually becoming so frequent and ludicrous you're physically laughing at the ridiculousness of it all (although the underground night vision sequence does test your patience). Still, at 90 minutes, you can't deny this is a well-directed, entertaining watch.

28 days and 28 weeks illustrate the fundamental difference between a good zombie film and an average zombie film. Days focused on character interaction, and the zombies served more as vehicles for the antagonists rather than the antagonists themselves. 28 weeks is a traditional "ZOMG zombies" slaughterfest. Still a good movie (the night vision scene was particularly very well done), it just could have been so many worlds better if it was closer in approach to the original.

My theory: during secret testing of the Large Hadron Collider at the CERN lab in 2006, a huge black hole was generated which escaped and was made into the plot of this movie. So I started wanting everybody to die, most of all the damn brats that caused it all. Some of the setups are extremely nasty - am I the only one to associate the herding of people into the "bunker", then lights going out and Infected entering with the gas chamber at Auschwitz? Should a mere entertainment flick tread there?

Most of the points go to the opening scenes. While the transition to a action movie made "weeks" a much weaker zombie movie compared to "days" its still worth a watch. Hopefully "months" will go back to its roots.

While the first movie was distinctly British, this is simply an American movie set in England. Lacking everything that made the first one good and wasting some great actors on nothing, the only way this works is if you view it as a very dark comedy about how children are evil and stupid and will be the death of us all. Sorry, did I say comedy? I meant documentary.

From '28 Days Later', a film building on some stunning cinematography and a great story, here we have a classic example of the ever crippling horror-movie spasm: let's make each and every character as stupid as possible and use that to frighten the audience. Like, why don't they put a guard with the wife that has the virus? Hmm! The producers seem to really believe making the same film one more time, just worse, would work out. Only positive thing is a tip-top Jeremy Renner. Again!

I quite liked the first sequence, known popularly as 'Don abandons Alice'. The effort to generate theme and narrative on its basis, however, is incoherent rather than interestingly ambiguous, and eventually silly. Some saw an effort at topical profundity. The film has signifiers inviting such a reading, but I don't think it has thought going on to give actual content to those who might wish to accept this invitation, ultimately making such gestures appear, if anything, cynical and opportunistic.

Excellent follow-up to 28 Days later. A thrilling and intense watch. Some of the gore and action scenes are so over the top that they are comical but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The soundtrack is excellent and I loved the frequent abandoned city air-shots. Acting is solid and the film generally stays away from clichés. The chase in the opening scene is amazing. This film is a great entertaining experience, would have been even better if the plot was better developed.

I'm not convinced Fresnadillo had a complete understanding of how the Rage Virus works. I mean, moments of humanity from the infected? Did he even watch the first film? Also, why would they possibly want to leave this movie open for a sequel? Anything that you could do with infected in Paris you could do with infected in London. This entire movie they had the chance to play with the infected in a major city, and they blew it. I'm a huge fan of 28 days later, so this was a disappointment.

Aside from the fact this has one of the most insane casts for a horror entry, 28 Weeks Later does feel more mainstream in many aspects of its presentation. The film loses its grainy & unfocused flair and opts for a cleaner, but somehow less coherent, scope. The narrative is less engaging because it’s of its simplicity, leaving less to be answered. It also, manages to once again, create sequences that pull you out at times. However, its prologue is something special, and this isn’t bad, per se.
