From Amazon.co.uk

Put that cynical look away, because the critics were right. 28 Weeks Later really is a sequel that delivers, that expands on the original, and in many ways even surpasses it.

Faithful in many ways to the enjoyable, if derivative, 28 Weeks Later, this sequel sees original director Danny Boyle (who went off to make Sunshine instead) replaced by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo behind the camera (director of the excellent Spanish film Intacto). And Fresnadillo is an inspired choice, putting together a film that’s not bereft of flaws of its own, but one that proves to be an ambitious and surprisingly thought-provoking follow-up.

Many of the building blocks are the same. Primarily set over six months after the Rage virus engulfed Britain, turning many of its inhabitants into deadly zombie-esque creatures in the process, the film this time though sees the American military arrive to help sort things out. Only things quickly go wrong, allowing Fresnadillo to mould a pacey, exciting and desperately enjoyable action carnival, that’s got a little more under the surface.

Grounded by Robert Carlyle as one of the survivors of the virus, replete with his kids in tow, 28 Weeks Later skilfully navigates the labyrinth of sequel hell and really, really delivers. What’s more, it opens up the enticing possibility of a further sequel, and on the evidence of this film, that’s a very welcome thought.

28 Weeks Later, like its predecessor, isn’t a film for the faint-hearted, and wholesome family entertainment it absolutely isn’t. But it’s a very good, energetic horror movie, and far, far better than you might've originally given it credit for. --Jon Foster

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthy sequel 19 Sep 2012
By Matt
Format:Blu-ray
I wasn't a fan of the first film. After a promising opening the story became laboured & I lost interest towards the end. With expectations fairly low I was caught off balance by how much I enjoyed this.

Whilst the build up is slow it's never boring. The main characters & interplay in the first half are interesting enough to draw you in & there is always a subtle sense of unease hinting that bad things are going to happen.

When the action finally kicks into gear there's an almost immediate shift in pace. This isn't just a series of jump scares & jolts for laughs, the objective is clearly to unsettle the viewer. There's a genuine feeling of panic with the realistically flawed responses to the chaos. Once things do get nasty any restraint evidenced early on goes out of the window. Be warned; this is not for the squeamish!

Both the performances & the script are excellent & the reactions given to the escalating horror are totally believable. It doesn't insult your intelligence by shoehorning plot elements for the purposes of advancing the story; this feels like a natural continuation from where the first movie left off.

A genuine surprise. A rare horror sequel that builds on the original & broadens the story rather than a lazy retread inspired by pound signs [a stigma many sequels have failed to overcome]. Highly recommended - to horror fans with a strong stomach!!

4.0 out of 5 stars re-infection 27 Mar 2008
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
sequal to the movie 28 days later, which involved an outbreak of a virus in britain that makes those infected become mindless flesh eating zombies who can run very fast.

This takes up the story a few months on, with all the infected having seemingly died out. britain is steadily being repopulated and survivors are being housed in the london docklands, in an area controlled by american troops.

two children who were abroad when the outbreak happened return to the country and are reunited with their father. a survivor with a guilty secret. But when the virus returns and there's a new outbreak the two children could be the saviours of the human race. If they and some other survivors can get out of the city...

Absolutely deserving of an 18 certificate this is a very violent and bloody film and not for the squeamish. since horror is not my thing but post apocalyptic disaster stories are I finally gave in and watched this, and much to my surprise throughly enjoyed it.

Where it succeeds are in having a group of very sympathetic main characters who you can really root for, and in some stunning shots of a deserted london. It turns into quite a gripping chase movie, and there's a memorable last scene that sets up a propsed third film. I'll see that when it comes out.

This is a single disc dvd, and the extras are:

a commentary from the director and writer

two deleted scenes [the first good the second rather superfluous so you can see why it was cut]with commentary from the above

the cinema trailer for the film

three making of documentaries, running from fifteen to seven minutes in length.

3.0 out of 5 stars It does what it says on the tin 25 Feb 2008
Format:DVD
The movie begins with the introduction of a handful of people hiding out from the infected. After a short time, the house is attacked and most of the group killed by the zombie-like masses. Robert Carlyle and his wife are separated and he escapes leaving her to her fate.

Next, the US military descend on the UK with the plan of repopulating London and thereby set up a `safe zone'. Carlyle's 2 children are reunited with their father - their father just happens to have complete access to everything about the compound they're living on. Day 1 back in Blighty and the kids easily slip out of the safe zone and head back to get some things from their former home.

Upon returning home, the children discover that their mother somehow (which is never revealed) survived the attack and has been living in the house for the past few months. The military arrive at the house and take the children and their mother back to the "safe zone". The mother is a carrier of the disease who shows no symptoms of infection and is therefore a precious commodity as she may contain the secrets to a cure. When Robert Carlyle hears his wife is still alive he goes to visit her. Predictably the wife infects Carlyle....he kills the wife and then sets off on his mission to infect everyone in the `safe zone'.

From here on in the film spirals into your basic "zombie chase". Robert Carlyle emerges as a logical zombie if such a thing exists as his sole purpose is to track down and kill his children. Then again this movie was never meant to be believable now was it.

Ultimately this is your usual zombie movie with lots of blood and gore but even for me there was a bit too much gore. I'm not squeamish but I had to turn away at this movie more than once. But if you enjoyed 28 days later then you probably won't be worried about the gore in 28wks later!

In summation.....it does what it says on the tin.

By russell clarke TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
28 Days Later is certainly one of the most original and effective horror films of the last ten years. It also revitalised the stagnant zombie genre , though i feel it's fair to argue that the "infected" are not actually zombies at all. More like particularly committed football hooligans. Putting that rather spurious argument aside the film seemed to leave little room for a sequel but Danny Boyle, director of the original film lest we forget, had been working on a screenplay but once an acceptable draft had been commissioned turned down the directors role wanting to work on his sci-fi epic "Sunshine".So director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo who helmed 2001 indie hit "Intacto" was given the job -though Danny Boyle did some work as a second unit director. The end result is a far more committed film in terms of sheer horror than 28 Days Later but one whose suspect plotting leaves it ultimately far less satisfying.
It must be stated that the film starts tremendously with a ten minute set piece centred around a remote farmhouse. Married couple Don (Robert Carlyle) and Alice (Catherine McCormack) are holed up in this isolated house with other survivors when a fellow survivor-a young boy- brings a horde of the infected which have been chasing him to the site . The infected break in and in a truly visceral sequence as the ravening horde swarm through the house Don abandons his wife and the young boy and flees across a neighbouring field with infected pursuing him , barely escaping with his life. This extended scene with the music of God Speed You Black Emperor blaring portentously is incredibly intense and the film never produces any else that comes close to matching it.

It's a good film with a good story line but not as great as the first one. It's more of a case as "you've seen one and you've seen them all".
