This is an awesome horror film but I am not quite interesting for a Zombie movie.

Slick bit of nihilism that manages to outdo its predecessor.  I love Fresnadillo’s style—the frantic editing, the washed-out colours, the crisp sound effects and some amazing visuals all presented with a throbbing, almost subliminal musical score.  Plus, the very idea of a world threatened by an epidemic of “rage” bears an uncomfortable resemblance to current events.  Although the film demands you take a few rather large leaps of faith and turn a blind eye to some of the more illogical plot devices, it is still enormously entertaining and well worth watching.

OK. This 2007, big-budget, zombie movie certainly did have its fair share of good points, as well as its share of bad points, too.

On the plus side - I thought that the "run-for-your-life" panic which prevailed (when the "Rage-Virus" zombies were literally biting everyone and anyone that they could during the all-out zombie attack) was handled very well. The heart-pounding terror (as it escalated into a frenzied "Code Red" situation) really progressed quite nicely and became a very satisfying adrenaline rush for this viewer.

And, on top of that - The excellent, rapid-fire editing, along with the often-haunting soundtrack music, all added up to a number of very riveting horror-movie moments.

But, on the down side - Not only did I get pretty fed up with the entire combat unit (who all seemed to be just a bunch of predictable, garden-variety jocks) - But when Tammy and Andy Doyle deliberately sneaked away from "District One" and entered into the restricted zone (which caused all hell to suddenly break loose), I thought that this whole business weakened 28 Weeks Later's story-line considerably and lost it some significant points.

And, finally - The one thing that really puzzled me about "Rage-Virus" was - Why were the infected ones not biting other animals (and then these creatures, in turn, would become infected biters, as well)?

Good. But nowhere near as wonderful as the original if it's between the two, you can skip this.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. Very predictable but still entertaining.

Not as enjoyable as its predecessor, 28 Days Later, but different enough
to warrant a viewing. The opening scene is a stand-out in the "series".

I really liked 28 DAYS Later and had some small hope that this movie would be as good. It wasn't. More or less a glorified zombie action movie. Not as bad as some, but not as good as many. The acting was ok. The efffects were ok. There was nowhere near the emotion or character depth as in 28 Days Later. It wasn't a complete loss, but was a very poor sequel.

Enjoyable zombie movie but there are big plot holes.

Jul 20, 2009

In the first film (28 Days Later) you desperately cared about the characters and their survival but in this one you can't wait for them to die. It's hard to care about fictional characters when the movie is so contrived.

This movie falls victim to the perils of sequels. This is just a big sensless feeding frenzie that makes the first one look like Art by comparisson. The best part of this film is the very begining but it doesn't live up to the hype.

Spoiler Alert-- All of the Death and Mayhem in this movie is the fault of the stupid kids.
