So my friend Dave got me some free tickets to an early showing of 28 Weeks Later, the sequel to 28 Days Later. Now I wasn't the biggest fan of the first one; partly due to crowd I saw it with, but mostly because the acting was sub-par, the plot jumped around a lot, and the people purposely did stupid things. The sequel however is ten times better, at least.
The main family in the movie are still unknown actors, but they included a favorite actor of mine, Harold Perrineau; better known as Michael from ABC's Lost, or Link from the Matrix Trilogies. He is also the helicopter pilot in one of the best "chopper blade decapitation" scenes ever in a horror movie (including Grindhouse). Other favorite scenes of mine were the shots of London in ruins, especially the helicopter landing through the partial dome of Wembley Stadium. How they did those scenes I don't know, but it was good. If you like zombie movies, or even horror movies in general, go see this. Now.
