Movie: 28 Weeks Later (2007)

28 Weeks Later (2007)
Horror, Sci-Fi, Thriller


Sequel to 28 Days Later with the same running, Rage infected zombies that turn in under ten seconds of being bitten. I just spoke about how awesome I think that is, you barely have time to realize they've been bitten and are going to turn before they are one of them. So the story is after 28 Weeks, the infected died from starvation so they cleaned out Britain and started rebuilding and moving people back in... sounds hunky dory right? Wouldn't you want to go there? Worst idea ever...

I only just realized how awesome the cast is! Starring Robert Carlyle (Once Upon A Time, Trainspotting) who I absolutely love! Aussie Rose Byrne co-stars and if you haven't seen her in Two Hands then you need to go watch that movie now, great Aussie crime film she co-starred in with Heath Ledger. Then there's Jeremy Renner...you know, Hawk Eye from The Avengers? He's pretty much Hawk Eye in this too... Finally; Harold Perrineau (Romeo + Juliet) who I've been talking about recently in Sons of Anarchy.

Of course the 'Safe Area' doesn't stay safe for long when a carrier of the virus is found and unintentionally spreads it to the new population. There were a few things like Carlyle being taken out early on and yet we still see him running around as a zombie, which is kind of cool.The kid who also ended up being a carrier being infected, rescued and then unintentionally infecting what looks like the rest of Europe. But you would have thought they could have found a cure from his blood... thought the kids didn't know he and their mother were immune.

I like that this one makes me think a little more and that the people - for once - we nice and tried to help each other instead of kill each other.
