28 Weeks Later
This hyper survival horror that follows on from Danny Boyle’s visionary 28 Days Later managed to dazzle me at the cinema but the knowledge of what happens sucked away most of what made 28 Weeks Later such a trip.
All that I was left with was some brilliant gore, a bunch of zombies that were in training for the Olympic Sprint Team and a bunch of cocky Americans who believe that they and only they, can save the world (well at least Britain) from the Rage Virus.
It’s not that 28 Weeks Later is a bad movie, it’s just that it doesn’t really hold up to a second viewing, which is a shame.
Another shame is that I only got sent a preview screener and not the final product, so my intended exploration of the special features didn’t materialise.
