What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Debashine Thangevelo The pace is exhilarating, the scenes are unrepenteantly gory and the story is gripping.
Carina Chocano While 28 Weeks Later lacks the streamlined thrust of its predecessor, it makes for compelling, adrenalin-fuelled viewing just the same.
|Mail & Guardian|

Bruce Dennill Visual effects often wreck otherwise strong stories, but in this movie, they are responsible for some of the most profound emotions experienced by the viewer.
Barry Ronge The new director provides a few new characters, but basically this is the same movie we saw five years ago.
Paul Arendt While it's a fun addition to the genre, 28 Weeks Later feels a tad redundant — it doesn't do anything that the original didn't do better, and it lacks that film's understated lyricism.
Wade Major The overall impact is so strong and the product so slick and polished, that 28 Weeks Later simply cannot be characterized as anything other than a spectacularly satisfying surprise.
Jason Anderson The rare sequel that trumps the original in many regards, 28 Weeks Later is a ruthless beast of a thriller.
James Berardinelli Another week, another disappointing summer sequel. So it goes…
Peter Travers 28 Weeks Later is the rarest thing you’re going to find at the movies this summer: a sequel that doesn’t suck.
Decent at times -- in terms of pure action -- but redundant at others, and desperately in need of some sort of image stabilization, the film hints at yet another sequel.
Tomatometer A tense, scary mix of atmospherics and punchy direction.
