September 30, 2014
The best purely British horror/science-fiction film in decades. And the first great apocalypse movie of the new millennium.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Boyle is perfect for the job because he's not big on reassurance; by taking the radical step of letting the movie's low-budget grime get under your skin, he gives the zombie picture new life.

It's an efficient reminder that science-fiction filmmaking doesn't necessarily have to be swamped by special effects, that the best of it comes in tweaking the familiar just enough to turn it fantastical.

The movie's craft makes the dread of a killer virus contagious: viewers may feel they have come down with a case of secondhand SARS or sympathetic monkeypox.

Heedlessly derivative though it may be, 28 Days Later does what it sets out to do and then some -- scare us out of our wits, then get us to apply those wits to an uncommonly intelligent and provocative zombie flick.
October 6, 2013
28 Days Later is a mind-bending look at a future one hopes never happens.
October 6, 2013
This Dogme-driven apocalyptic nightmare from director Danny Boyle is a tense, exciting and terrifying horror.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 6, 2013
A crude but sometimes startling serving of schlock, the velocity and ferocity compensating for leaden conversation and smudge-o-vision photography.

October 6, 2013
The film doesn't confine itself to wry satire -- it's an effective action adventure and an emotional journey for its protagonist Jim.
October 6, 2013
Danny Boyle's purposeful direction and Mark Tildesley's imaginative and resourceful production design keep this fresh and edgy; the images of a wasted London and the details of a paramilitary organization in the countryside are both creepy and persuasive.
October 6, 2013
What also makes 28 Days Later effective, and sets it apart from other thrillers, is that it makes you care about the characters.

A thrilling, gory affair, 28 Days Later is a well directed, believably acted yarn and well worth a watch, particularly for Romero fans.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

A very frustrating watch as 28 Days Later... could have been a great film and the first half is just that. It is a shame about the rest.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 26, 2009
This "Dawn of the Dead" inspired chiller is strong on concept, style and brutally violent action, but suffers from poor musical scoring, and a digital video format that helped keep its budget at 10 million dollars.
Full Review | Original Score: B
April 29, 2009
Entertaining, horrifying, and is sure to be a classic.
October 1, 2007
The film itself seems to exist in a state of perpetual imbalance... between life and death, the real and the surreal, civilization and chaos.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
August 4, 2007
Paying homage to the horror movies of the past while creating a modern-day drama steeped in realism, Boyle has created something truly unique.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
