28 Weeks Later

Just back from a nearly-free preview screening of same. Hadn’t seen the first one, so didn’t really know what to expect.Not a lot, as it turned out; a mildy diverting (if utterly linear) gorefest with some big explosions and a lot of early-morning shooting around London to make it look deserted. And one of the most obvious “we’re going to make a third one” endings I’ve seen in a while.

Came back out to my car to find that somebody had stolen the magnetic ISPCC ribbon from the back, presumably to stick on their own. Only in Ireland…

    What’s of real interest is the song used in the trailer. Shrinking Universe ;)

    Pitty it got tainted by the trailer.

    The first movie is one of the best science fiction movies ever made, IMO, so I’m sad to hear this one is just a mindless gore-fest. I was afraid it might turn out that way judging from the trailers.

    Now I know to avoid it. Thanks! :)

    By the time you’ve heard Shrinking Universe played all the way through the film every 10 minutes at maximum volume, you’ll probably never want to hear it again :)

    I find that highly, highly unlikely ;)
