28 Weeks Later

Lacking the originality and ingenuity of “28 Days Later”, as suspected, “28 Weeks Later” is not the sequel Danny Boyle fans were waiting for. Although the idea of quarantine and zombie apocalypse is a well versed topic, mainly by the popular series “Resident Evil”, the retread is justified by above average cinematography, a stellar ensemble cast, and enough action to keep one interested, delivering on the most basic of levels. With an early Jeremy Renner, Rose Byrne, and Robert Carlyle, the characters are at least entertaining to watch. But with no real attachment to any of the characters and a death toll that leaves little hope for anyone, there’s a giant lack of anything to hold on to as the film sloshes through the usual steps. With an open ending, I am really hoping they decide to let this one die out.
