I have returned from the theaters having seen the sequel to the great 28 Days Later. If you're planning on seeing the film, don't bother reading the short recap of the film below. Just skip down to the words END.
28 Weeks Later takes place, well, 28 weeks after the infection breaks out. Much of London has been quarantined thanks to US forces. They are taking in survivors and have somewhere in the number of 15,000 people living within the city. The movie follows a family more or less. The father escaped a house in a cottage after it's attacked by the infected and he is forced to flee while his wife is left in the house with the infected attacking.
He later finds his son and daughter, who sneak out of the safe walls of London to go back to their home outside the city. They find their mother there who was persumed to be dead. The US forces bring her back to London where they run tests on her. Seems that she has been infected but something is causing the infection to not turn her into a blood-thirsty monster. Note: she has two different eye colors and so does her son.
Anyway, all heck breaks loose when the husband finds out his wife is actually alive. He goes to her, while she's still strapped to the testing table and kisses her.. thus.. spreading the infection to himself. Yea, not good. It isn't long before the civilians are being attacked and turned into infected and the US forces are left with no choice but to kill everyone, infected or not. I'll stop here leaving you all on the edge of your seats so you'll go see the movie.
Overall I thought this was a fantastic film and better than the original in every way. The acting, the visuals, the infected, were all better than in the first film. If you saw 28 Days Later you simply must see this sequel. There's quite a bit of action and a crapload of gore! Whoo! The ending though is.. eh.. not what you would hope for. 28 Years Later maybe? I sure hope so.
