Movie Review: 28 Weeks Later

Short update this week, hitting the high points: This movie isn’t terribly different in terms of content from the last. There’s a lot of infected and gore related to that. The virus is the same.

In this sequel, they go back to England, re-introducing people to the island. Only, something happens, and now the infection springs back, and we’re back to the rough scenario from before where our characters are trying to survive long enough to get the hell out of there.

This is a good movie, earning its spot at 4th out of 4 so far not because it’s not good, but because the entries thus far have been so very great.
