Besides exhilarating, terrifying action, what 28 Weeks Later achieves best is a mood of terror, vigilant fear, and high-alert tummy flutters. Worth every penny.

S'alimentant d'une mise en situation beaucoup plus large et complexe,28 Weeks Later est la suite dont avait besoin cette nouvelle franchise pour être prise un peu plus sérieux

Suggests the kind of fable as might be shared from generation to generation, albeit in its own nerve-racking, nihilistic way of directing these metaphors into our psyche.

a perfect blend of well-drawn characters, political allegory, grand guignol, flesh-crawling tension and very fast-moving zombies.

"Weeks" abandons any trace of hope it has in characters prevailing for the better. It is cynical, nihilistic and unflinching.

works not just because of its visual and thematic resonance with current global traumas, but because it grips you on an emotional level

Against all odds, Weeks proves to be a jarring and effective follow-up to its equally-shocking predecessor.

It's a worthy follow-up, and I'll surely be waiting for 28 Months Later.

Thanks to its direction, cast and political subtext, 28 Weeks Later is a horror sequel that's actually worth seeing and improves upon (in some areas) its predecessor.

There isn't much acting here, but there is entirely too much vomiting, and the prose turns laughably purple, too.

If had been in junior high school when I saw this movie, I would have had two words for "28 Weeks Later."Ew, gross.

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.

It falls prey to the usual pessimism-as-realism crutch (most notable in its silly final 10 second coda), but director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo works in some real ideas along the way.

While the theme of soldiers as lethal and relentless as the infecteds repeats Boyle's film, here the uniformed threat is specifically U.S.

A tense and terrifying trip through urban chaos, 28 Weeks Later is Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's respectable follow-up to Danny's Boyle's original.

Even though I knew the scares were coming, I jumped out of my seat a few times.

The movie is an adrenaline-pumping ride, which is marred by repetition and by sometimes excessive use of its signature blurry pan.

As eerie as the first and probably more scary.

Apparently it takes "'Weeks'," rather than "'Days'," to enjoy a sprightly-paced, finely-acted, and surprisingly intelligent apocalyptic zombie horror.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

A good deal better than the average Hollywood horror film, but 28 Weeks Later doesn't have the inventiveness, originality or intelligence that made its predecessor one of the top horror pictures of the past five years.
