28 Minutes Seen!
all saw what happened after the “rage virus” encompassed
What made the original work was the very humanistic story behind the dreaded virus which turned people into ghouls. And with the opening moments in the new film, it seems that this trend may continue leaving the shocks as part of the story and not just a chance to put some jarring music onto the soundtrack and throw a cat across the screen. That poor cat gets thrown way too much. What happens is a nasty attack on some innocent people just trying to survive. Now since Fox asked us nicely to not give too much away, I will abide. But truthfully, the story seems to work. It even feels familiar as we have seen some pretty horrible tragedies in the past few years. Yes, there are moments that felt like it could have been taken days after Hurricane Katrina. And this gives the movie a sense of disturbing realism.
And it’s also nice to see Robert Carlyle in a movie like this. I’ve been a fan of his since Danny Boyle’s own TRAINSPOTTING and it strikes me that this dude can do anything. His work here is quite good. There are also a few other folks that I particularly dig including Catherine McCormack, Jeremy Renner and a few other faces you may recognize. As I said, 28 minutes can tell you a lot about a film and from where I was sitting, this may have a bigger budget and a bigger cast, but it presents the world in a very bleak world where a society has to be rebuilt after the tragedy of the first 28 days. And most importantly, I bought it. It didn’t smell of bad sequel.
WEEKS LATER looks damn promising with a great cast and some strong
