British Film making at it's very best!, 22 Mar. 2003
I wish I could give this film 10 stars, it really is probably the best british film made in recent years. 28 Days Later takes a different approach to post apacalyptic dramas. Where as Deep Impact focused on asteroid impact and the BBC drama Threads focused on nuclear war, 28 Days Later focuses on a virus that takes over the country in a matter of weeks. The film opens with some scenes of vivisection and animal rights activists release a group of infected monkeys and the 'Rage' virus in the process. A bike messenger awakes 28 days later to find London deserted, his parents dead, and the population turned into murderous zombies, he meets up with several survivors and they start a perlious journey up north where they find relative safety with a group of soldiers, or do they? This isn't your average zombie movie and it's shockingly realistic, and makes you wonder what if it was me? With some impressive visuals and excellent plot this had to be my favourtie film of 2002.
