The first movie happened 28 days after a zombie-virus outbreak in Britain. This one happens 28 weeks after the incident, at a time where all zombies from the first film have supposedly starved to death. Of course things aren’t so simple and due to human error a new outbreak occurs, in which our heroes will have to try and stay alive.
What a mess. What a damn shame. What a miserable disappointment. I enjoyed 28 Days Later and I was looking forward to what seemed like a good idea. Sadly a ridiculous story and infuriatingly stupid characters obliterate all worthwhile elements. 28 Weeks Later is only marginally better than House of the Dead, which I’d give zero hearts. This film gets one heart for Rose Byrne and one heart for production value. As such, watching 28 Weeks falls miserably short of other interesting activities such as watching specks of dust move around in sunlight.
