28 Weeks Later (2007)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

28 Weeks Later (2007) What LAND OF THE DEAD was to NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, 28 WEEKS LATER is to the first movie, which is both good and bad.

It's 28 Weeks after the outbreak of the "Rage" virus and it's believed it has died off with all the infected. American troops occupy the country and begin to repopulate London with the survivors, who have since been in quarantine. Everyone is assigned to live in a certain section, which is highly guarded by the military.

At the start of the movie we see a husband and wife (Robert Carlysle and Catherine McCormack) who try to fend off an attack from the initial outbreak - and he flees and leaves her behind to her fate. Months later, when he is re-united with his son and daughter in the repopulated center he lies and tells them that he saw their mother killed. This story doesn't go over so well when she's found to be alive. In fact, she was indeed bitten by the "zombies" but never became one. Instead, she becomes a carrier...

Least to say, there's another outbreak and the two children have to survive, as they may hold the key to a cure for the disease.

The scope of 28 WEEKS LATER is much bigger than the first movie, and there are far more special effects, such as when a helicopter slices a whole crowd of the infected into hamburger or when sections of London are air-bombed. But after a while I found I was getting bored of all the running around and wanted to see something different that I haven't seen in a "zombie movie" before. No such luck. It also ended in the predictable manner and I'm sure there will be a "28 MONTHS LATER" in which the entire world is infected...
