28 days later Review
Written by: ragXdoll
****i see people kill people****
the movie starts off with a bang which was great. It was intense to see how quickly from one monkey to a human the virus could spread. Then bam 28 days later. You wonder how bad could things get in 28 days. We will find out soon enough.
After some animal lovers tried to save some primate and let the rage virus free into society the movie takes us to 28 days later; in a hospital. Jim wakes up in a hospital as he looks around he can quickly noticed he is alone. The character takes us into the steet of the U.K. which are empty. As he walks the lack of music makes the matter even more disturbing. The virus the primates were carrying spread to the streets and then from town to town untill it reached the entire world. Jim meets up with other survivors who will try and explain to him what happend.
The scene were Jim manages to get home and see his parents is heartbreaking. Just as badly as him you want his parents to be alive yet finding out how they died was sad. But knowing they made the choice only made the movie look more real. It brought the thought of what would you do if you came face to face with such a decision. Which can also bring great conversation after the movie.
The 2 main characters (being Jim and Selena) were quite intertainning to see on screen. It looked as if they were made to be the complete opposite. Jim being the caring one with hope of a better life. while Selene on the other hand is the one who won’t care if she has to leave someone behind in order to save herself. of course eventually someone would need to show her that she actually needs people. The scene with Hannah when she tells her she is going to make her not care was actuallly as caring as it gets. It was sad to see someone pushed to the point where she couldn’t even fight anymore.
The music in the movie was rather rare which was creepy enought but once the music started it was either saddening or just enought to stress me off. The pace of the movie was just great for the story. It was mostly slow yet it had some part that kept you on the edge of your seat.
