Twenty Eight Days Later (2003)
Movie Review by The Cryptkeeper
11.24.03

Twenty Eight Days Later (2003) I have heard lots of rave reviews for 28 Days Later in recent history. Calling it a great zombie film, zombie this, zombie that. Hate to break it to ya.. but this was far from a zombie flick. It involved a pseudo end of the world scenario where people... yes people... were infected by a virus known as 'Rage'. (the same one I am infested with everytime I drive somewhere). These infected people were still alive, just in not such good shape. Their eyes glowed red and they were out to bite the shit out of folks. The infection starts with some monkeys and spreads to the humans through blood and saliva. Infection took a matter of seconds. We are led to believe that this handful of mainlanders are all that is left of civilized society. It took the filmmakers way too damn long to set up that scenario. The only zombie present in the first 30 mins of the film was me...snore. After they sufficiently set up the storyline, the movie's pace quickened quite a bit and I began to enjoy it. A band of soldiers claiming to have a cure lured a group of survivors, including some women, to their camp. While they didn't have a cure for the virus, they did provide us with some insight into the minds of men who think they have nothing left to lose. The implications of being the last people on the planet brings up moral issues. I would say ethical issues, but if you think you are one of the few remaining people on earth, who really cares who is watching when you try to rape some women in hopes of procreation..and rebuilding the human race. In a perfect world, procreation is not a good reason for sex.. so why in the face of the demise of humanity should it be. They wanted to bang the broads, plain and simple. All moral issues aside, this was not a bad flick... if you can make it past the first 30 mins of the film. How long does one guy need to walk around a city without seeing another soul before he (or us as the viewers for that matter) realize that some bad shit has happened. I was not scared by this film, but I was kindof insulted that the filmmakers think so little of our intelligence that it takes 30 mins of 'setup' for us to get it. All of my bitching aside, I enjoyed the moral challenges this movie made me face as the viewer and would recommend it to those who like to have something to think about...and crave a little blood.
