Two Line Reviews - #105

Movie: 28 Days Later (2002)

Plot: This Danny Boyle film presents an insanely ingenious idea on the spread of a virus pandemic causing death to a majority of the UK population,leaving behind some infected who vye to kill the uninfected.How the uninfected 3-4 people tackle the menace & a desperate friends-turnded-foes army makes way for a gripping two hour watch.

  • The concept & its making by Danny Boyle - Taking aerial shots at places as busy as the UK with only 2-3 people on focus is no mean feat.
  • The hero (who I guess is Fischer Jr. of Inception) does a splendid job,especially in the climax.
  • Background score is good. Boyle must be one of those directors who pay attention to this. No wonder he works with Rahman now.
The infection's nature is dubious. How could a virus infection make people get violent and make them want to kill others within just 10-20 secs after picking the infection!

My Rating: 9.4/10
