28 Weeks Later


28 Weeks Later
Set 28 weeks after the first movie, the US military has secured the city of London and turned it into a 'Green Zone'. They allow people back in to resettle the place. One of them is a dad with two young kids. Mom joins them later, apparantly having survived an attack by the zombies. Little do they know that she carries a sleeper form of the virus, and it's not long before there are zombies roaming the streets of London again... Expect a lot of blood and gore.

98 minutes.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Debashine Thangevelo quote iconThe pace is exhilarating, the scenes are unrepenteantly gory and the story is gripping.
15
Die Burger
Jacques Liebenberg

Cape Times
Carina Chocano quote iconWhile 28 Weeks Later lacks the streamlined thrust of its predecessor, it makes for compelling, adrenalin-fuelled viewing just the same.
15
Mail & Guardian
Shaun de Waal
12
The Citizen
Bruce Dennill quote iconVisual effects often wreck otherwise strong stories, but in this movie, they are responsible for some of the most profound emotions experienced by the viewer.
14
Sunday Times
Barry Ronge quote iconThe new director provides a few new characters, but basically this is the same movie we saw five years ago.
5
BBC
Paul Arendt quote iconWhile 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.
10
Box Office
Wade Major quote iconThe 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.
13
eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconThe rare sequel that trumps the original in many regards, 28 Weeks Later is a ruthless beast of a thriller.
15
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconAnother week, another disappointing summer sequel. So it goes…
10
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote icon28 Weeks Later is the rarest thing you’re going to find at the movies this summer: a sequel that doesn’t suck.
15
ScreenIt
quote iconDecent 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.
