    Synopsis


    28 Weeks Later
    The devastating rage virus that annihilated the British Isles mysteriously resurfaces in Goya Award-winning director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's sequel to the Danny Boyle-directed horror hit that terrified audiences worldwide by offering a breathless new take on the familiar zombie mythos. Six months has passed since the rage virus caused British residents to indiscriminately murder and destroy everything in their paths, and now the U.S. military has declared victory in the war against the rapidly spreading infection. As the reconstruction process gets underway and the first wave of refugees return to British shores, a family separated by the devastation is happily reunited. During the initial outbreak, Don Harris (Robert Carlyle) and his wife Alice (Catherine McCormack) sat holed up with a small band of survivors in a remote farmhouse. Their kids well out of harm's way at a remote boarding school, Don and Alice's outlook for the future is decidedly bright until all hell breaks loose in the country and Don just barely manages to escape the clutches of the infected. The joy of later seeing his son Andy (Mackintosh Muggleton) and daughter Tammy (Imogen Poots) as repopulation efforts get underway in London is short-lived, however, when an innocent bid to reconnect with the past sets into motion a tragic series of events. Now, just as society struggles to sort through the rubble and rebuild London from the ground up, the virus that nearly destroyed a nation strikes back with a vengeance. Jeremy Renner, Rose Byrne, and Harold Perrineau, Jr. co-star in the frightful sequel, which highlights the dangers of declaring victory in the calm before the storm. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    28 Days Later
    Animal rights activists free a group of infected chimpanzees to horrifying results in this speculative sci-fi horror effort from Trainspotting director Danny Boyle. Waking from a coma in a deserted London hospital 28 days later, bicycle courier Jim (Cillian Murphy) takes to the deserted city streets in a state of mystified confusion. Joining forces with another group of survivors following a terrifying encounter in a seemingly abandoned church, Jim soon learns the truth behind the deserted streets and the menacing creatures that lurk in the shadows. It's soon revealed that the chimpanzees had been harboring a deadly virus that sends its victims into a furious, murderous rage, and in the days following the initial exposure, the entire population was nearly wiped out due to the resulting homicidal rampage. Is there still a glimmer of hope for humanity -- or has the deadly "rage" virus found its way to foreign shores and infected the entire planet? ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      I got them to replace the originals I had on DVD. The first 28 days later looks like VHS but that's because it was filmed on $500 camera so blu-ray is not going to do a miracle. Only on the last scene do you see the change. The second one does not suffer from lower image and it looks great. As for the movies themselves well they are not zombie type. Instead of eating you they want to beat the crap out of you. Rabies on a bigger scale. A nice change from the apocalyptic zombiefest we are used to.

      I heard good things about the two films in this collection. So when I was running out of The Walking Dead series to watch during my Sunday night zombie parties, I decided to try these movies. Technically, these are not zombies. Of course technically neither are the walkers in The Walking Dead. The films lived up to thier reputation, fun to watch, pretty scary and well paced. I recommend these to anyone who enjoys this type of film.

      Two of the best horror movies ever made. A frightening take on the too often cookie cutter zombie genre. Not loaded with special effects but the visuals are very "in your face" shocking. Only 4 stars because the blu-ray version could have been better transferred. It's better than the dvd version but they should have both sharpened it up more and added more content. All in all still good writing, camera work and acting. Worth a look if you're into horror flicks.

      I'm going to take a technical approach to this review and leave the film to you to judge - the atmosphere can be nerve-wracking and sinister regardless of the colors in the environment, and importantly to me - the aspect ratio used in filming this should become the standard with filmmakers. The movie fits today's TVs perfectly with no black bars - I'm not trying to bash CinemaScope here, but shouldn't films fill the entire screen without cutting anything off?

      28 Days Later is a good movie that does the Zombie theme a little differently then other newer Zombie movies. It was able to hold my attention and I loved all the little plot twists that kept you wondering what would happen next. 28 Weeks Later was a great sequel to the first movie. Usually follow up movies tend to loose a lot of the flare but I really liked how this was a new story from the same disaster scenario. Loved Both Movies!

      Both films are the best they've looked and will look right here in these blu-ray discs, and it's one package. 28 Days Later was shot in 480 Standard Definition so it doesn't look amazing (even though it won't look any better) but 28 Weeks Later certainly does, having been shot on film. Both are good films, with 28 Days Later being my favorite and probably most people's favorite of the two but very solid package and well worth picking up for the price.

      I used to love all types of horror movies, but truthfully I just haven't gotten in to the newest movies. I watched these when they first came out and remember how good they were. Let me tell you, even now these truly stand up against anything out there. This time around I actually preferred the second movie. Both are an experience to watch. Harrowing, scary and brutal. And both for $10.00 on BluRay, you can't beat that!

      There is no reason to buy 28 days later on Blu-Ray. It just doesn't look good because it was filmed with such a low rate camera. Don't expect Blu-Ray to save that. The sound transfer is good. 28 Months Later looks and sounds just like you hope a Blu-Ray movie would. Both are fun movies, but sadly I don't think 28 Days later holds up that well. Plenty of plot issues that do not make sense.
