28 Weeks Later

Just back from a nearly-free preview screening of same. Hadn't seen the first one, so didn't really know what to expect.

Not a lot, as it turned out; a mildy diverting (if utterly linear) gorefest with some big explosions and a lot of early-morning shooting around London to make it look deserted. And one of the most obvious "we're going to make a third one" endings I've seen in a while.

Came back out to my car to find that somebody had stolen the magnetic ISPCC ribbon from the back, presumably to stick on their own. Only in Ireland...

Comments:

28 weeks later is RUBBISH. The movie starts off promisingly, and then completely falls apart. The characterisation is weak - people are more likely to relate to the infected than some of the characters. And the ironic "twist", the main bad guy turns out to be the father, who is infected earlier in the movie and tries to hunt down his kids, is just absurd.

Wow. I thought it was quite an impressive movie. Well structured and plenty of action. I stayed on the edge of my seat for almost the entire movie. The night-vision seen was pretty cool.
