28 Weeks Later Synopsis


28 Weeks Later, the follow-up to the terrifically successful “28 Days Later”, picks up six months after the rage virus has annihilated the British Isles. The US Army declares that the war against infection has been won, and that the reconstruction of the country can begin. As the first wave of refugees return, a family is reunited - but one of them unwittingly carries a terrible secret. The virus is not yet dead, and this time, it is more dangerous than ever. Robert Carlyle, Harold Perrineau, and Catherine McCormack lead a cast of talented newcomers including Mackintosh Muggleton and Imogen Poots. Newcomer Juan Carlos Fresnadillo directs, while Danny Boyle, director of the first film, is an executive producer.



The big question lingering behind 28 Weeks Later is whether or not the series’ creator Danny Boyle is involved in it. Fox insists he’s been a major part of the production, but Boyle talks about it as if he’s had absolutely nothing to do with it. Is this sequel to 28 Days Later just a studio cash in on someone else’s good idea, or is this a natural extension of the world Boyle and his team started? Since we can’t get a straight answer out of anyone, the only way to find out is to see it.

What we do know about 28 Weeks Later is that you can expect more pseudo-zombies, and lots of them. The difference this time is a broader scope. The infected monsters from the previous film are spreading, and this time may get the upper hand. Of course the big controversy for genre fans is whether or not they qualifiy as zombies. The 28 creatures are people infetected with a disease. As a result they’re stronger and faster than the old Romero zombies we’re used to. But purists will tell you that zombies aren’t disease ridden suburbanites, to qualify as a zombie you have to be dead. Whatever. They look like them, the difference is academic.

Can 28 Weeks Later recapture the critically acclaimed terror of 28 Days Later? Does anyone even care? It’s not like there’s a zombie movie shortage. Resident Evil is still going strong, and in between RE sequels we’re deluged with dozens of other knockoffs and zombie re-inventions every year. The dead are walking the earth in record numbers, how long before we’re all just sick of them?
