Consensus: While 28 Weeks Later lacks the humanism that made 28 Days Later a classic, it's made up with fantastic atmosphere and punchy direction.

Lou Lumenick
New York Post

It's an exciting, well-directed thriller that, while providing more than enough action and gore to satisfy genre fans, also offers the political commentary that has characterized zombie movies.

Scott Tobias
AV Club

Under Fresnadillo's assured direction, 28 Weeks Later blurs the line between genre entertainment and a photojournalist's shots of the next urban catastrophe.

Scott Weinberg

A damn worthy follow-up to an unexpectedly excellent chiller.

There isn't much acting here, but there is entirely too much vomiting, and the prose turns laughably purple, too.

Tom Charity

Combines traditional B-movie virtues -- economy, invention, sinewy narrative spine -- with the eerily resonant spectacle of a 21st-century metropolis stripped of its citizenry.

Jeffrey Lyles
Lyles' Movie Files

Isn't the same thinking man's zombie film as its predecessor, but it ramps up the action and will leave you on edge enough that you'll be searching for a nightlight before going to sleep.

Even though I knew the scares were coming, I jumped out of my seat a few times.

Claudia Puig
USA Today

Relentlessly grim and grisly, 28 Weeks Later is not for the faint of heart. But its provocative post-apocalyptic theme makes for a smart and deeply unsettling film.

Jeff Meyers
Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

With its expertly paced thrills, unrelenting terror and apocalyptic despair, 28 Weeks Later ain't a bad roller coaster to ride.

Despite some good clean zombie fun, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo gets a little preposterous with 28 Weeks Later. Overall, the 90 minutes of virus outbreak is… More

I liked this one, its really haunting, eerie and a little scary as its filmed with pace, handheld cams and a gritty look. All this makes the whole thing feel… More

It is sadly not as good as 28 Days Later, however, it does stand out in certain areas. Its as intense, possibly darker and is more horrific. However, there is… More
