4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bullock's usual style..., 1 April 2006
This review is from: 28 Days [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
Sandra Bullock usually has a pretty reliable formula in films - a bit ditzy, hippy-ish, lovable and girly while kicking butt the whole time. Not here - In 28 Days she plays an entirely different character, and the result is quite surprising. This is a great film that takes you through the trials of addiction, but not at all in a depressing way. In fact, considering the subject it's actually really uplifting as you follow Gwen (Bullock) through coming to terms with her problems and learning to help herself. You laugh, you cry, you think about it and you come away feeling pretty good. It's good in that it doesn't try to preach to you or impart some cheesy moral, but still makes you think about addiction without being too serious.
If you're a fan of Sandra Bullock's more conventional style movies then it does take a few minutes to adjust to Gwen's persona & a more serious plot line, & for a while you can't help but expect a lighthearted chick flick. Do stick with it, Bullock pulls it off much better than you'd expect.
This is a fab film & well worth watching, especially if you're already a Bullock fan. It does have a good few funny moments & makes for enjoyable viewing, & doesn't ruin its originality with any expected romance sub-plots - all in all it's a great film & definitely worth a look.
