What Is True?

28 Days Later [2003]


A zombie-creating plague leaves only a handful of survivors. Yes, sounds familiar, but this is something special. 28 Days Later is a frightening, gory and violent movie, but it is also one of the most entertaining and creatively filmed movies I have seen.

At first the story seems to be a hopeless situation in which nobody can trust anybody. Then it surprises you with some strong glimmerings of human decency in the midst of a cloud of evil. The outlines of hope and family take shape in Jim's instinct to protect those he loves.
