28 Weeks Later

A sequel to the brilliant 28 Days Later where Britain was quarantined after a zombie outbreak, this one picks up six months later, when the Americans come to reboot a dead country. But of course, something goes wrong…

And these aren't zombies in the traditional sense. They run bloody fast and rather than being dim-witted and shambolic, they're furiously angry and bloodthirsty. The first film was best known for its wide-angle shots of an empty London (filmed early in the morning) so look for more of the same here, as well as a zombie chase across farmland which replaces the gut-wrenching tunnel chase in the original.

Unlike most big-screen horror films these days, 28 Weeks Later has a half-decent premise, a credible cast, including noteworthy performances by newcomers Muggleton and Poots, and an edgy musical score.

For the hardcore, I suspect "28 Weeks Later" isn't really that scary, but for me, I was climbing the walls and crawling behind my seat...

There’s nothing overly inherently wrong with the film – on reflection, there are several serious plot holes which are quite glaring and jarring (the worst being it’s never overly clear how Don’s wife survived the original attack) but the pace of the film zips along that you’re carried with it. It does, however, feel like a video game in many places...

Bigger action, more amazing deserted (and devastated) London sequences and biting contemporary relevance, if a touch less heart. It’s a worthy follow-up, with a grimly satisfying coda that doesn’t rule out revisiting the situation 28 months later...

Feels a tad redundant - it doesn't do anything that the original didn't do better, and it lacks that film's understated lyricism. As a pacy Saturday night shocker, though, it can't really be faulted, and the final twist is genuinely hilarious...
