Product Description

Sequel to the 'what would happen if' premise of '28 Days Later' (2002) where Britain has been devastated by the release of a virus which turns the victim into a murderous rage. This time around, it's six months later and the US military have managed to restore order in the population. Unfortunately, one of the returning refugees is carrying the virus, and it won't be long before a pandemic spreads.

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

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!!

28 Weeks Later is directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo who also co-writes with Rowan Joffe, Jesus Olmo and E. L. Lavigne. It stars Robert Carlyle, Rose Byrne, Jeremy Renner, Harold Perrineau, Catherine McCormack, Mackintosh Muggleton and Imogen Poots. Music is by John Murphy and cinematography by Enrique Chediak.

Six months have passed since the Rage virus decimated the UK, but now people are returning to London's District 1 with the U.S. Military overseeing the project. However, the Rage virus can be carried in people with no outward symptoms........

After the monster success of 28 Days Later it was inevitable that a sequel would follow. With director/writer combo Danny Boyle and Alex Garland off making Sunshine with Cillian Murphy, the big players from the first film were missing (Boyle and Garland were Executive Producers here). There was reasonable cause for some concern that this would be the latest in a long line of horror sequels that, quite frankly, suck the big one. How great to find that not only is "Weeks" an excellent sequel, it also doesn't sit idle and copy Boyle's winning formula.

The blood and ick factor is considerably amped up, as is the action (there's running, lots of running, guns, lots of guns, panic, lots of panic), but the writers have put intelligence into the writing by expanding on the Rage virus victims as not just being an outwardly ferocious beast, and some topical smarts are spliced into the narrative with the presence of the American military "enforcing" the reconstruction of London. Also, with the films central focus being on a splintered family, brilliantly set up by the breathtaking/horrifying opening 10 minutes, there's a mighty heft of humanism flowing in between the blood vomit and body shredding.

Format: DVD
After the frankly disappointing and relentlessly derivative 28 Days Later, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's 28 Weeks Later may have bombed at the box-office but it's a vastly superior sequel that actually explores the fallout of its central situation with a modicum of intelligence before descending into dumb cliché rather than simply using it as a framework for a grab-bag of recycled bits from Danny Boyle's favorite movies. For the most part the cheap video photography has been replaced by film (though there are still some unsatisfying moments of overly-distressed low-res video footage) and the road movie format by an initially more epic story centring on the attempted repopulation of London after the virus has supposedly run its course. That the whole thing is being handled by the US Army with the civilians penned up in a `Green Zone' on the Isle of Dogs indicates that this isn't going to go any better than the occupation of Iraq and, true to form, when the virus reawakens it's not long before they're targeting `friendlies' and infected alike in a desperate attempt to take control of the situation.

There's a decent human drama at the centre of it in the first half, with Robert Carlyle's not-exactly-father-of-the-year having abandoned his wife (Catherine McCormack) to the infected suddenly having to explain to his children why she turns out to be still alive even if she is a carrier rather than a survivor. Unfortunately that's never really developed as all Hell breaks loose after a particularly ludicrous plot contrivance that sees her left all alone and unguarded while Rose Byrne's doctor argues with Idris Elba over whether it's better to kill her or to try to use her blood for a vaccine.

28 weeks later, the sequel to 28 days later lives up to the prequel alot involivng new elements, more scares, faster pace and mindblowing sequence of scenes. The story starts off with Don and Alice, they're kids Andy and Tammy are currently in Spain. The story takes place after the virus has taken hold of Britain, around this time is probably when Jim, Selena and Mark come together. 28 weeks later involves a new cast. Anyway, the story starts off with Andy, Alice and other survivors hiding from the Infected. A boy knocks at the door asking for help, being on the chase from the Infected. After getting him into the hideout, a few minutes later brings the monsters they were hiding from into the farm thanks to one of them peeping through a boarded window. The next five minutes is enough to scare you witless with the Infected crashing in. Don then abandons Alice running down and escapes. 28 weeks later, the US army declare Great Britain safe and begin repopulating and decontaminating London. Andy and Tammy return from Spain to find their dad again, however, he lies to them telling them the possiblilty of their mum surviving. The btrayal of Alice will catch up with Don and this family will sadly be the cause of the virus awakening again.

The story plot I thought was a bit less stronger than 28 days later, 28 days later focusing on Jim, Selena, Hannah and Frank's bond as a family trying to survive was something that made the film special. The only thing that will probably annoy some people is the number of silly setting holes, such as qurantining civilians into a room and low and behold, the Infected can get through at the back through a fire exit. The film has much more gore and blood than its prequel, the scene with the helicopter is very bloody. The director of the film did very well.
