If you liked 28 Days Later, this is definitely worth seeing. There's twice the action in this film, and the plot and cinematography are very well done. Good acting, pace, etc...

There's also a graphic novel which bridges the gap between the first film and this one, as well as plans for 28 Months Later...

The first film was good, so hopefully this one will be well done also.

I thought it worked really well, but it didn't seem to do much at the theatre. Amidst Spiderman, Shreck and Pirates, nobody seemed to go see this one. I saw it the night after opening night, at about 9:30PM, and there was maybe 20 people in the audiance. :?

It came out, and you barely saw any commercials for it...

I finally got to see 28 days later, my brother has it on DVD


I was good, but I thought it would have more gore than it did


Sometimes I need a good Gorey flick fix  :banplea:

I did not like it as much as 28 days ... The plot is not bad but I am still hungry ...

What about Resident Evil 3 ?

Resident Evil III was OK, better than II, but not as good as the first one. I did a recent review of it and put it up in the Monstrous Myspace blog.

I thought 28 Weeks just had more going on than the first film, and it worked. But, it would be nice if "zombie movies" could get back more to the basics.

Just rented 28 weeks later and loved it.  I like the first one too.  Techincally these aren't 'zombie' movies since the individuals are not dead but are infected.   I can dig the connection though.   The thought of a virus like that is scarily interesting....

"zombies" don't have to be dead. just under the influence of something.
