    I wonder how this one will compare to 28 Days Later, that was a pretty cool movie that not a whole lot of people remember. Anyone know if it's got any of the same cast or writers?

    28 Days Later wasn't even a real zombie movie. It was some artsy pos about what uncontrolled anger would due to humanity.

    28 Weeks Later is just trying to capitolize on the zombie genre.

    not even. this movie is a natural progression with a bigger budget. I think that it will be awesome. if you've seen the French horror flick High Tension you'll see how cool it is to use Muse for your horror film. perfect song to pick for these types of flicks. I'm stoked.

    we've been through this, way too many times... 28 days later, is a zombie movie... only a casual fan, would believe it's not.

    I liked 28 Days even thought it was anti-military. Based on the trailer I saw last night, I think this I think it will be even more anti-military.

    i thought 28 days later was a great zombie film despite the subtle meanings and social/policital abysses most people propose

    28 weeks later should be great as well. the Muse song really got my attention

    I agree. By definition there are many differnt types of zombies. The ones in 28 days later just happen to be different than the steriotypical hollywood zombie and this fact does not make it any less of a zombie movie.

    It was a piece of pseudo-intellectual crap in the zombie motif yes.

    But is was not a "real" zombie movie.

    i'm willing to hear your argument, Jack. so tell me why you don't consider it a "real" zombie movie? it's not black and white? not directed by an american, etc. ? what is it

    Because it's a movie that just uses the motif. It's not ABOUT zombies, it's not about the undead, it's not about apocalyptic survival, because it's not a horror film (at least the director doesn't think it is acording to wiki) Those things are just the settings.

    It's about what uncontrolled anger and hate does to society. When people get angry (infected with "rage") they lose all controll and rational thought they break down in to the most basic of primal emotions. Which is exactly what the infected do in 28 days later.

    I'll be seeing 28 weeks later though. Since from the previews it looks like they've dropped their attempt to be intellectual and have moved to a more mainstream action style movie.

    I think it is a Top 5 zombie movie.

    Romero's zombies aren't like Haitian zombies so are his movies not proper zombie movies either?

    Carribean zombies don't eat the dead and are usually under the control of some shaman.

    it's a zombie movie

    it's a good movie

    I prefer the brain craving undead romero type zombies but anger disease zombies work for me too

    Uncontrolled rage always makes for some interesting viewing whether you consider it a typical zombie movie or not.

    Awesome movie. The violence was just fantastic. The emptiness of Brittain was just haunting.

    Just got back. It was good, but not great. Very predictable at times but not in a distracting way. Great in the drama department. The ending however was gay as fuck.

    The footage was a bit unexpectant and it did come at a time in which they could have really extended the film and given some causation to the whole ending, but in retrospect I do think it was a logical concluding point and the ending few frames were quite entertaining.
