From Amazon.co.uk

28 Days Later
The director/producer team that created Trainspotting turn their dynamic cinematic imaginations to the classic science fiction scenario of the last people on Earth. Jim (Cillian Murphy) wakes up from a coma to find London deserted--until he runs into a mob of crazed plague victims. He gradually finds other still-human survivors (including Naomie Harris), with whom he heads off across the abandoned countryside to find the source of a radio broadcast that promises salvation. 28 Days Later is basically an updated version of The Omega Man and other post-apocalyptic visions; but while the movie may lack originality, it makes up for it in vivid details and creepy paranoid atmosphere. 28 Days Later's portrait of how people behave in extreme circumstances--written by novelist Alex Garland (The Beach)--will haunt you afterward. Also featuring Brendan Gleeson (The General, Gangs of New York) and Christopher Eccleston (Shallow Grave, The Others). --Bret Fetzer

28 Weeks Later
As an exercise in pure, unadulterated terror, 28 Weeks Later is a worthy follow-up to its acclaimed predecessor, 28 Days Later. In this ultraviolent sequel from Spanish director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (hired on the strength of his 2001 thriller Intacto), over six months have passed since the first film's apocalyptic vision of London overrun by infectious, plague-ridden zombies. Just when it seems the "rage virus" has been fully contained, and London is in the process of slowly recovering, an extremely unfortunate couple (Robert Carlyle, Catherine McCormack) is attacked by a small band of rampaging "ragers," and the cowardly husband escapes while his wife is attacked and presumably infected. Their surviving children (Imogen Poots, Mackintosh Muggleton) fall under the protection of a U.S. Army sharpshooter (Jeremy Renner), but nobody's safe for long as 28 Weeks Later goes into action-packed overdrive, with scene after blood-gushing scene of carnage and decimation. The film's visuals follow the look established in 28 Days Later, this time with bigger and better scenes of a nearly abandoned London on the brink of utter destruction. The military subplot gets a bold assist from Harold Perrineau (as a daring helicopter pilot) and Idris Elba (in a too-brief role as the military commander), and their firepower--not to mention the efficient lethality of helicopter blades--turns 28 Weeks Later into a nonstop bloodbath that's way too intense for younger viewers and guaranteed to leave hardcore horror fans gruesomely satisfied. That's all there is to it--this film is almost plotless and dialogue is minimal throughout--but as a truly terrifying vision of survival amidst chaos, 28 Weeks Later honours its origins. Could there be another sequel? Thanks to the "chunnel," the answer in this case is definitely oui. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

28 Days Later
Hailed as the most frightening film since The Exorcist, acclaimed director Danny Boyle's visionary take on zombie horror "isn't just scary…it's absolutely terrifying" (Access Hollywood). An infirmary patient awakens from a coma to an empty room…in a vacant hospital…in a deserted city. A powerful virus, which locks victims into a permanent state of murderous rage, has transformed the world around him into a seemingly desolate wasteland. Now a handful of survivors must fight to stay alive, unaware that the worst is yet to come…

28 Weeks Later
The film pick up six months after the Rage virus has spread throughout the city of London. The United States Army has restored order and is repopulating the quarantined city, when a carrier of the Rage virus enters London and unknowingly re-ignites the spread of the deadly infection, wreaking havoc on the entire population. The virus is not yet dead, and this time it's more dangerous than ever.

Format:Blu-ray
As I state in the title, if you buy the Bluray version you are getting ripped off.

Almost all of the film was shot on a DV camera with a resolution of 720x576, this is the resolution of a DVD.

For the Bluray they have just taken that original footage and scaled it up to 1920x1080, this is in contrast to most films where the footage is scanned at 2 or 4k (either the same as bluray or higher).

The only advantage you will get is the audio and that will be minimal. Danny Boyle made a huge mistake using such a cheap camera for this picture, it doesn't add a mood to it, it just looks like a cheap pirated DVD.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unwatchable 3 Sep 2009
By Bobby
Format:Blu-ray
Without a doubt the worst BD disc i've watched yet. It's grainy, blurry and the darks look awful (in some parts even a greeny colour!) It is no better than the DVD copies - in fact i'd even say they're worse.

I'm aware that Danny Boyle was looking for this effect, hence the camera he used, but if this is the best his film is ever gonna look, I think even he will be disappointed that his fans can only watch it with smudges and blurs making it virtually unwatchable. If they can upgrade films from the 80's to brilliant effect, I fail to see why more effort couldn't have been made with this.

You keep hoping that the next scene will clear up a bit but it never does. I got about 25 mins in and had to turn it off because I felt like I was watching a really bad pirate copy or something recorded on a camcorder.

The sequel is slightly better on the daytime shots but the rest is the same. It is utterly disgraceful that they've brought a package out like this and then have the cheek to charge 30 for it. These are budget discs at best and I wouldn't even waste my money on them even then!

Absolutely shocking!

2.0 out of 5 stars Good films, terrible Blu-Ray 25 May 2011
Format:Blu-ray
The quality of this Blu-Ray set is poor, the first film honestly looks like a VHS and worse than my DVD. The second film, 28 Weeks Later looks acceptable, better than DVD quality but not the best of Blu-Ray.

If you're looking for a set of films that ooze Blu-Ray quality this simply isn't one of them. Maybe that's why the double pack is so cheap, the first film does not deserve to be on a Blu-Ray disc, it's VHS level of quality which to be fair makes sense, they did use handheld cameras after all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant fill,Not-so brillaint quality 28 Nov 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Its a shame to watch a brilliant film like "28 days later" on such a crap quality blu ray.In fairness,I paid 7.50 for it but the picture quality was terrible,it seemed like i was watching somme sort of illegal download!
if you really like this film then buy it but if you are low on money then wait untill it drops or pick up the dvd for 3 eleswere (Or how ever much it is an amazon!) because it has he same quality as a dvd!!!!!!!!The only high defintion on the blu ray was when they showed the alternate ending!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Films 13 April 2014
By Alison TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I love these films, particularly 28 Days Later, real British horror classics! The problem with transferring 28 Days Later to Blu-ray is that the film was deliberately shot on small DV cameras which give it a much more gritty and immersive effect than standard cameras. It means that the Blu-ray version is no better than the standard definition version.

5-stars for the films themselves, but 3-stars for the Blu-ray giving a 4-star rating overall.

1.0 out of 5 stars poor transfers. 6 Feb 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Im not going to review the films themselves,we all know how very good they are. The blu ray transfers are simply the poorest I have ever seen.28 days later's transfer is simply awful. The transfer makes the film look like a cheap, awful B movie from the 70's.Blurred,very grainy. I then put on the normal DVD of the film, and it actually looked better!
28 weeks later was better, but very slightly. nothing about the transfer was outstanding. I own film films filmed 50 years plus old ago, with far better tranfers than this. Advice - stick to your normal DVD copies, as the upgrade on your blu ray players is far better to watrch than this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and sour 19 Oct 2013
By Fars
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Firstly let me say I love both films, I was even lucky enough to see the original at the uk premiere.

So the first film makes a very poor blu ray, the audio is all over the place and you'll get no benefit from the blu ray resolution, if you buy this you should know this going in.

Having said that the sequel and the very good price makes this an excellent purchase, so it's easy to recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars 28 days and weeks later 10 May 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For anyone who is interested in their gothic works then it is worthwhile buying this box set as you can get both DVDs together cheaper than if you were to buy them individually. There are a lot of people who tend to dislike sequels but I think 28 Weeks Later has merit. It does seem a shame that the attempt to rebuild society fails and it is slightly disappointing that the characters from the original film do not make an appearance. All the same it is still worth watching.
