Movie Review == 28 days later...

The typical science xperiment goes bad and the majority of the populus is infected, and the protagonists try spend their time running away these zombies that lurk at night. The movie starts of slow, but fast in a way...whY? Well they dont' bore u w/ the details on the virus..just show a quick cut scene of the lab and some yelling. As the movie progresses it definatly gets better. Especially near during the military base scenes. The movie may skip over some parts, but i don't think it is as band as "The ring" and doesn't bother the viewing at all. This movie is well worth the money...but u might wanna bring a pillow during the first 20 minutes....

28 Days

Yeah, 28 days That's the amount of time they conceptualized, shot, edited, and marketed it in - just in time to make the summer releases list.

The first scene goes for "fast & furious" plot establishment by showing a scant offering of how the virus, "MAD", ends up infecting the whole of England. I thought it was kinda funny that they called it MAD, and reminded me of their most popular orange flavored drink over there called, "Orange Drink." Can't beat simplicity eh.

Anyway, it gets a bit better and the primary actor is akwardly interesting. His co-companions are less interesting until they are forced to relieve their sanity and do some serious zombie killing.

One relieving factor is that this movie DOES'NT rely heavily on any fancy computer graphics and so you are allowed to see it ride thinly on the premise it introduced earlier. It ain't a bad movie, but I'd wait for the two dollar show and maybe even a renter.

well it lokke4ed to me like a resident evil rip, but it should be decent for a british horror flick. I think it is a pallet cleanser from all the super hero cgi stuffs.

Resident Evilishnessnessssssssss

Jaed, you kinda nailed it. I was trying to think of a good comparison and you nailed it. Resident Evil.... with tea & crumpets.
No dicernable major CGI happening, more like Night of The Living Dead-type effects. Which, for this day and age is ballsy considering the availability of affordable effects editing systems.

Wait for the DVD of two dollar show.
:wink:
