A virus is accidentally released from a British research facility. Those infected with the virus develop uncontrollable fits of killing rage. Twenty-eight days later, humanity is on the verge of extinction and a small group of survivors in London battle other survivors while avoiding the deadly virus.
The director/producer team that created Trainspotting turn their dynamic cinematic imaginations to the classic science fiction scenario of the last people on Earth. Jim (Cillian Murphy) wakes up from a coma to find London deserted--until he runs into a mob of crazed plague victims. He gradually finds other still-human survivors (including Naomie Harris), with whom he heads off across the abandoned countryside to find the source of a radio broadcast that promises salvation. 28 Days Later is basically an updated version of The Omega Man and other post-apocalyptic visions; but while the movie may lack originality, it makes up for it in vivid details and creepy paranoid atmosphere. 28 Days Later's portrait of how people behave in extreme circumstances--written by novelist Alex Garland (The Beach)--will haunt you afterward. Also featuring Brendan Gleeson (The General, Gangs of New York) and Christopher Eccleston (Shallow Grave, The Others). --Bret Fetzer

interesting complex characters. It still doesn't quite rise to being a great movie, through a combination of not really exploring the many political and social themes it hints at (George Romero takes that further), and pushing its internal logic pretty far at times. But it's always entertaining, has a lot of genuine suspense, and isn't over- reliant on easy scares and shocks. Interestingly photographed on video.
I would have rated this even higher if it had actually ended one of the darker, more emotional and complex endings included on the DVD special features. That would have brought it to 'classic' status. (It was shown in U.S. theaters with the 'regular ending and then one of the darker endings, but for me that attenuated the impact).
I rented this movie in HD, started watching it, and was immediately confused by its pixelated quality. After doing some research, I found out that the movie creators deliberately shot some scenes in relatively low-res Canon XL-1 camcorders for logistical reasons. I don't know if the entire movie is low-res (supposedly the last portion of the movie is high res), but be aware that much of the movie is purposefully low-res.
That said, I absolutely loved this movie. I was expecting some sort of typical zombie movie, and instead what I got was a beautifully expressive and creative look at being human.
Great movie that was Cillian Murpheys "break out" role at least to audiences in this country. Great acting, great storyline, tremendous direction and casting.......everything was simply awesome.
Also one of the first movies to have "frenzied" zombies featured.......if not THE first. Sure beats the old slow moving plodders that most zombies are portrayed as being.....but then again I like both......big zombie movie fan (except for the really dreadful ones and there are a LOT of them out there). Romero has long been bypassed as the "king" of the Zombie genre. Give him his due though, he did create the original zombie flick, or at least the type zombie that everyone outside of Haiti has familiarity with.
The movie itself earns 5 star though.
