28 WEEKS LATER (2007)

I guess I'm in the minority here, but I think these movies fucking blow. The first film was a shaky cam snoozefest and Part 2 is barely any better. At least there's a little bit more zombie action in this one, but not much.

28 WEEKS LATER takes place 28 weeks after the initial outbreak of the Rage virus. A central section of London has now been cleared of the infected and cleaned up. The population is slowly being allowed to return. The first group of returners is held up in a highrise apartment complex and as you would expect another outbreak takes place and all Hell breaks loose. Nothing cool happens like people holed up in their apartments fighting off monsters, no it's just a bunch of running around. All gloriously told in extreme shaky cam close up shots. The bedroom/bathroom/front yard fight scene in the DAWN OF THE DEAD remake was better shot and more exciting than anything in this film.

If you liked the first film then you'll like this one because it's more of the same. If you disliked the first film then you'll dislike this one because it's more of the same. Me though, it bored the piss out of me, so if you will please excuse me I gotta go clean my sofa. Skip it.
