ERADICATION. STERILIZATION. RE-POPULATION. RE-INFECTION.
Several weeks after the first outbreak of the rage virus in London, the city is desolate and a U.S.-ledNATO force arrives… but is it too soon to repopulate? This sequel to 28 Days Later (2002) has the same gritty look, but the new director rarely reaches the level of tension of the original. This one feels more like just another zombie flick, the cast is a bit uninvolving and the story offers few surprises. Grisly effects (there’s a memorable scene involving a helicopter), but emotionally the film will leave you cold.
