Set in England, during the early 21st century, 28 Days Later concerns the breakdown of society following the accidental release of a virus known as “Rage”, which makes people mindlessly violent, and the struggle of four survivors to come to terms with the ruins of everything they once knew.
This was my first glimpse of Cillian Murphy on film, and I must say he is an outstanding actor. Full of emotion and raw energy. 28 Days Later reminded me of the original Dawn of the Dead, but with more emotion and plot. The cinematography and the digital video was extremely good and an empty London was so realistic it was almost eerie.
Not being a huge Sci-Fi fan as is my partner DJ, this was not a great movie to me, but a good film nonetheless, and it kept my interest without being way out Sci-fi. C+
