20th Century Fox: October 21,2003
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.
I actually watched....'28 Weeks Later' before I saw this one. I only picked it up because it was in a $2 bin at the store haha! AWESOME! AND because everyone was telling me how a-ma-zing it was. So, I checked it out. And I didn't like it as much as I liked '28 Weeks Later.' I don't know why. Maybe it was because, on the cover of my DVD, it said it was the scariest movie since 'The Exorcist.' Or maybe it was because it just wasn't scary at all......I don't know. At any rate, it was a decent movie and I'm happy it's part of my disgustingly huge collection!! haha.
The movie is about a guy...I don't remember his name right now. So he....was in an accident...got hit by a car or something and woke up and everyone was just gone. So he walks around yelling "HELLO!" for awhile. It was very....'Resident Evil' like. The beginning was anyways. It just reminded me of that part of 'Resident Evil' when Alice wakes up naked in the hospital and then walks outside and there is just papers and stuff flying everywhere and no one around. So, the whole movie is this guy and some chick and some other peoples trying to run away from zombies and find protection or whatever.
Overall, this movie was alrighttt. I'm happy to have it, especially at $2, but it's nothing extraordinary. And I liked '28 Weeks Later' much better! I get how the movies tie together but....there's nothing that like...has things from the first one into the second except for the whole...zombie thing, you know? And I thought it would be the same characters from movie one to movie 2 but whatever, they're both good either way.
My Rating: 4/5
