Overview

Danny Boyle's hit suspense film 28 Days Later comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that fails to preserve the original theatrical aspect ratio. The transfer does a fabulous job of capturing the often gritty, yet occasionally lovely digital photography that helped earn the film its well-deserved audience.

Overview

Danny Boyle's hit suspense film 28 Days Later comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that fails to preserve the original theatrical aspect ratio. The transfer does a fabulous job of capturing the often gritty, yet occasionally lovely digital photography that helped earn the film its well-deserved audience. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, while Spanish and French soundtracks have been recorded in Dolby Digital Surround. English and Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include an entertaining commentary track recorded by Boyle and screenwriter Alex Garland. The two had previously collaborated on The Beach, and they have an easy rapport with each other. Three alternative endings are offered, along with commentary explaining why those endings were discarded. One of these is a close to 15-minute sequence that utilizes storyboards and an old script read by Garland and Boyle in order to show how the film's third act might have changed. These endings will be familiar to anyone. There are half a dozen deleted scenes with optional commentary, a close to 30-minute making-of featurette, trailers, a still photo gallery, and a music video. This is a fine release for what it is, but the same extras are available on a different disc that also offers a widescreen transfer of the film. That version is preferable to this one.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tony Nigro
Just when it seemed zombie movies had been done to death, a stylish, intelligent jolt from director Danny Boyle springs the sub-genre back to life. 28 Days Later, based on Alex Garland's novel, employs the allegorical underpinnings of all the best zombie shockers. After an opening scene in which some misguided animal rights activists spring a dangerously infected primate from his lab cage, Boyle jumps four weeks ahead. A London bike messenger named Jim Cillian Murphy awakes from a coma to discover the city is virtually deserted, and he soon joins a few other survivors in a desperate fight against the "infected" -- people overtaken with a contagious, uncontrollable rage defined only by an imperative to infect. With due homage to George Romero's zombie classics, Boyle chooses to re-imagine rather than reinvent the genre: The infected, for instance, move with furious speed -- in stark contrast to Romero's lumbering undead. Inevitably, the story boils down to the genre's essential Darwinian mechanics, pitting the humane, thoughtful, and victimized against not only the infected but also the tough guys with big guns. Produced in the shadow of September 11, 2001 and released at the height of the world's SARS worries, the film inadvertently became very much a movie of its moment. Nonetheless, with its thoughtful perspective, gorgeous digital cinematography by Anthony Dod Mantle, and effective genre trappings, 28 Days Later should stand the test of time. That is, it's so good it won't die.
All Movie Guide - Josh Ralske
Danny Boyle and screenwriter Alex Garland (and Boyle's longtime collaborator, producer Andrew Macdonald) bounce back from the relatively big-budget debacle of The Beach with 28 Days Later, a kinetic low-budget horror film. The filmmakers gratefully acknowledge their debt to a bunch of classic horror and science fiction movies, especially George Romero's Living Dead films. There's even a kickass black woman (Naomie Harris) who saves the hero's neck like in The Omega Man. But 28 Days Later has its own style. Cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle (The Celebration) uses digital video surprisingly effectively, adding to the film's gritty immediacy, with a few nice surreal touches (e.g. the painted flowers along the road) thrown in. The dark inflections of John Murphy's bass-driven score help moves things along, too. The story is simple and lends itself to allegorical readings, with its somewhat pro forma anti-authoritarian slant. There are a few nicely played shocks, and some amazing, haunting images of a deserted, "Rage"-ravaged London. The recently comatose main character, Jim (Cillian Murphy), begins as a cipher, but gradually comes into focus thanks to Murphy's soulful performance, and his chemistry with the fierce Harris. Brendan Gleeson (Gangs of New York) maintains his excellent track record as a lovably gruff father vainly trying to keep some sense of normalcy in his young daughter's life. Things get a little ham-fisted in the last third of the film, bogging down a bit when the ragtag group reaches a military outpost in northern England and predictably finds something even worse than the diseased lunatics they're fleeing. But for the most part, 28 Days Later is a good, scary horror film, and a worthy successor to the forebears it references in nearly every frame.

    A breath of fresh air

    I thought this movie was a great way to look at 'zombie' movies with a different perspective. The fact that they call them Infected instead of zombies brings in a factor that usually isn't seen in zombie films.

    The simplest things are what make this movie a masterpiece, and I highly recommend it to anyone.

    28 Days Later

    Recently Danny Boyle won the best directing Oscar for Slumdog Millionaire, a worthy award winner in my opinion. Boyle is a director that never rests on his laurels, recreating genres every time he steps up to the plate. Danny Boyle is a filmmaker worthy to be listed among the great auteurs like Scorsese, Hitchcock, and so on. With 28 Days Later... (unfortunately, often referred to as a "zombie" movie, though it's not) he tackles horror with excellent precision.
    28 Days Later opens with scenes of violence being watched by a monkey on a TV screen as he lays strapped down in a lab. Extremist animal activists break into the lab in an effort to save the animals from being tested on only to find they've been infected with a highly contagious virus known as Rage. Disaster leads to death and devastation throughout all of London. Cut to Jim (Cillian Murphy) 28 days later, a bike courier waking up from a coma in an empty hospital. After wandering across London, bewildered by the lack of people, he's saved by Selena (Naomie Harris) and Mark (Noah Huntley) as he's being chased by the infected denizens of the city. After finding other survivors, Frank and Hannah (Brendan Gleeson and Megan Burns), they hear a radio broadcast from a military installment which houses other horrors for our survivors.
    While often considered a zombie movie, and it borrows liberally from many past zombie movies, 28 Days Later is not a zombie movie. The infected in this movie are living beings, infected by a virus similar to Ebola and is communicable by blood, and has more affect on the brain than the physicality of a human being. This is important to the message of the movie as the virus represents something that is inherent in all of us and leads to social unrest and the breakdown of modern society, as the virus did in the movie. In this Boyle has done something that he does very well in every one of his movies: creates a great social commentary. Throughout the course of the movie we see that there are those who would fight against a society gone wrong, and those that would exploit it. Yet, while exploring the themes of moral ambiguity, Boyle never handles them with a heavy handed approach.
    The acting of course is top notch, as anyone whose seen Brendan Gleeson act would expect, but the movie really belongs to Cillian Murphy who had his break out performance in this movie. As Jim, a man who went down one day in a bustling city, and woke up the next in an empty city, Murphy shows the pain of a man whose lost everything before he even knew what had happened to him. Cillian gives us a man in the middle of a crisis that we truly believe his arc from a pained and scared man just waking up at the end of the world to a man who will fight through all hell to protect those he cares about. Naomie Harris, who also received great acclaim for this movie, portrays a strong woman struggling with her fear and sorrow, but always holding it in, trying to steel herself from pain to come. Also keep your eyes open for Christopher Eccleston, who will become the future Dr. Who a few years after this movie.

    Average

    This movie was not quite as good as reviews and a couple of my friends made it out to seem, in my opinion, but that doesn't mean that it was bad either. I liked it well enough. It had some great elements to it and the acting was fair, but I didn't really like it as well as movies like Dawn of the Dead or Day of the Dead. It was decent though, worth the price I paid for it. If you're into zombie flicks, it's at least worth a watch or a used purchase.

    EPIC

    I love this movie. If you like zombie flicks and have a passion for the undead you will love it too. It is "technically" not a zombie movie because I don't think that the infected actually die...but it is still great, none the less. Cillian Murphy is a great actor and plays his part perfectly. Great acting, great story, and lots of crazy thriller scenes. You won't be disappointed

    NOT a zombie film

    This movie was pretty decent but for all the hype about being a zombie movie it was rather disappointing. I am a huge fan of zombie films and this just isn't one. The whole "rage" thing was pretty cool and kind of fresh but it still left a bad taste in my mouth. If you are looking for a good contemporary zombie flick then pick up George A. Romero's Land Of The Dead or the black comedy Shaun Of The Dead. Gee, I miss the rotting corpses.

    ONE OF MY FAVORITE ZOMBIE FILMS

    This movie isn't really scary, but it's a good movie to watch. The story moves a little slow at some points in the movie, but the last 30 minutes of the movie is action packed and awesome.

    Atmospheric and Unforgettable

    From the minute this movie starts you feel chills...Set in London during the aftermath of a global infection that turns it's victims into ravening rage-filled beasts within seconds...The movie is shot in a very realistic way and the music provides even more atmosphere (if that's at all possible). It is truly a bleak, gloomy movie, and once it stops it never leaves your mind.

    Pretty much just another horror movie

    The movie: 28 Days Later is somewhat of your average horror flick, just with different zombies. It has the basic storyline, almost completely identical to that of Resident Evil. But the zombies are a lot different than those of Resident Evil. Versus your typical zombie (Resident Evil), the zombies in this movie were fast, keen, and were also intelegent to a certain extent (hunting wise).

    28 Days Later

    Based in Britain, 28 Days Later follows the affects of a deadly virus called 'rage' after it is released from a research laboratry after a group of animal rights activists set loose a bunch of psycho chimps. Then, 28 Days Later, we meet 'Jim' who wakes up after being in coma from a car accident, Jim is confused as to why not just the hospital, but the entire city is deserted, he walks around calling for anyone who can here him every few seconds until he gets to a church when he finds a pile of dead bodies, obviously suicides, and is then confronted by the priest who is infected by the virus, Jim runs from the church who is then chased by a group of more infected people, he is saved by a couple of survivors of the virus, Mark and Selena, who take him to deserted shopping centre and fill him in on what's happened in the last 28 days. They tell him that the virus has spread through the country and that there has even been reports of infection in Paris and New York, The three of them decide to obey Jim's orders of wanting to see his parents and set off for Jim's house, the movie then follows the chain of events that follow this decision

    These infected dudes were awesome

    This movie is pretty good, I love how it is different from most zombie flicks, this movie has infected crazy people. There infected with a rage type disease instead of being flesh-eating rotting corpses. But there wasn't as much action as I expected and it was sort of a rip off of resident evil. But this movie is still worth a check.

    A Return to Form

    Director Danny Boyle ditches his fast decline in Hollywood and his usual writer, and delivers in spades. With due homage to Romero etc, he creates a genuinely eerie, claustrophic feel and a sense of dread. We follow a handfull of characters as they look for sanctuary in an England populated almost exclusively by the homocidally diseased. The intelligence of the film making, the story and characterisations lift this well above a genre movie (although some of the final moments are a trifle familiar). Unsettling and thought-provoking.

    Something To Watch, Nothing To Jump Up About

    This is film was a good film, I can't deny that, the music was magic, the acting was beautiful, the plot was unfolding like a darkness among a heavy fog, but it was far from thrilling. It held me down for quite sometime, although I felt the characters and their individual pain. However there was no need for the film to have gotten as much screams as it did. I thought it was a good movie, I watched it and re-watched it because I thought it was so good. I mean the plot was interesting and the script was written with such unique quality that even I who reads film scripts like novels, knows that there was a lot of time spent working of it because Garland took all of his emotions to this work, the thrills were ok I guess. There is a Hollywood spark in the film that spreads like a wild fire and burns all of the dark plot lines and interconnecting prats, joining in the end with its endings. There was no way I could understand the virus or its methods. The science behind the film was deep, yes, but it did not explain enough for us viewers to truly understand all the damage that was being done unto the world. We did see London, and England and the damage done but we did not know what gave birth to the destruction. Overall it was a placid film, yet disturbing. It was good and had a lot of laughs and thrills but altogther much too dull for one to put in his or her favorite film box.

    Kind Of Silly

    Not only was this movie a rip off from Resident Evil it was just silly. It starts out the same way resident evil ended, a man wakes up in a empty hospital and is totally alone except for a few zombies running around. On top of that he runs into a crazy woman who is strung out on precription drugs and is trying to get to a army base in hopes that they will help them escape this horrible problem. Well to make a long drawed out story worse, the soldiers are deranged and are not everything they claim to be. This movie is rentable, but not buyable.

    28 days later this movie is still boring!!!!

    28 days later was probably one of the most cheesiest movies i have ever seen!! It had no plot and no point. It kept jumping from one topic to another. It was suppose to be about scary demons and zombies and that was the minor plot of this boring movie. It was no were close to being scary. I give it 2 stars, because it was a disappointment. I thought it would be interesting and scary and it was the complete opposite LAME! I would never recomend this movie to people. 28 days later i know i will not remember this movie!!

    Cool Flick

    This is an interesting update to the zombie movies of yor. The infected are a bit more athletic then the living dead and that adds a different element to the un-infected survivors. The infected spread the disease through their blood. So the survivors can catch it even if not bitten. I don't want to give to much away, but there is a definite tension that courses through this movie because of its ''rules''. I'd like to see a sequel.
