28 Weeks Later-Die Die Everybody Die

28 Weeks Later picks up where 28 Days Later left off. It is full of pointless violence and gruesome gore splatters the screen. The general theme here is that the threat has past and life can return to normal. Of course, it doesn’t quite go that way. The discovery of a sole survivor gives a doctor the hope of a cure, but this survivor is more Typhoid Mary than savior. Cue the blood thirsty zombies. . .
Like the first movie it is basically one long chase scene following a group of people that gets smaller and smaller as the film goes on. Once again the most amazing special effect is not the bloody body parts flying in all directions, but the empty streets of London. Our heroes walk across a deserted Tower Bridge and wander around the empty streets of all the touristy places in central London. There are a lot of aerial shots with empty roads and abandoned cars and the likes. Anyone who has seen the massively crowded streets of London has to be impressed by London as a ghost town.
I like British films, I liked Children of Man, and I liked this. Of course, I have always liked end of the world films. There is something about being the last people on earth that is forever appealing. Even if it means everyone else is a monster or dead. Well, it’s fun in the movies anyway.
