Aside from some gruesome twisty kills, Weeks Later overall is very predictable.

This film desperately needs a Cillian Murphy look; a Brendan Gleeson heart; a Naomie Harris spirit.

A frenetic killing machine -- illogical, telling in its grasp of human nature and utterly incapable of embracing the humanity it wants to show us.

28 Weeks Later starts strong, but it quickly disavows any potential it may have had as a dramatic piece and veers directly into inanity, eschewing character, tension or plot for a chase scene that lasts for maybe 45 minutes.

Another week, another disappointing summer sequel. So it goes...

Director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo hurns out a straightforward cinematic gorefest that's competent and repulsive but not much else.

Tries way too hard to recapture the magic of the first movie ... lacks the emotional impact, replacing it with more common horror movie cliches.

The infected just seem to bite, spit blood, scream and repeat a little too much.

28 Weeks Later holds itself to the same standards as its brilliant predecessor, but those very standards also accentuate its shortcomings.

The film isn't simply bad, it's a trainwreck.

It's a mindless, occasionally entertaining entry into the genre but it brings nothing fresh or innovative to the table. It's too bad because the first film was so good and Fresnadillo looked like a promising choice to take over.

Argue all you want that this is what kids do in horror movies, that doesn't make the silly set-ups any less annoying.

This isn't just a bad movie. It's a cut-and-paste example of how movie sequels are predictably inferior to their ancestors.

Unlike the original movie, it has absolutely nothing to say except stay tuned and give us your money.

Apocalyptic zombie sequel isn't for the squeamish.

If a heart-palpitating, seat-jittering gore fest happily gets your blood boiling, you'll indeed seethe infinitely more this time around.
