In today's industry it seems to be all about sequels and remakes that for the most part turn out to very disappointing compared to their originals. Plus this time around Danny Boyle decided not to direct but only produce the film so I was not sure what to expect from this one.
This film takes place months later and the city of London is finally getting back to normal and people in the quarantined city are beginning to repopulate again. Just when all seems to be going well a person enters the city infected with the virus and starts the rage all over again.
The action in this film never ends, I mean you get it right from the start and it does not stop till the final frame with a few good scare tactics tossed in along the way. Also this does have plenty of gore but it all fits perfectly into the movie and is not just placed in spots for no reason, but for those that don't like gore and have a weak stomach you might want to avoid watching this one. The character's here are also well written, you can relate to them which is rare in a horror film today. In alot of ways this was better than the original, the action is much more intense and it really keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. Fan's of the orignal "28 Days Later" or just horror or zombie lovers in general will enjoy this worthy sequel. After the critical success of the first film this one was going to have to be special to live up to it and I am happy to tell you it does a damn good job in everything it does.
