Because his name came up here as part of a cast list.

That's a pretty good clue that someone exists, right? ;)

I hardly watch TV and I've seen Whose Line Is It Anyway?

Wayne Brady is most definitely real.

I finally saw 28 Weeks Later! :P


"Bad" doesn't even describe it. Maybe I wouldn't hate it so much if it didn't blatantly rip EVERYTHING (and I mean EVERYTHING) off of its astoundingly superior prequel, 28 Days Later. (They even used the same music.)

Not only is it mind-numbingly predictable....but:

(spoilers)

It directly contradicts the established laws of the Rage virus from part 1. The mother in the film is a "carrier" but not infected herself---WHAT? That possibility was ruled out within 20 minutes of the first film. It serves NO purpose in the script other than drawing out tension/sentimentality/plot padding ("What's going to happen to Mum?") and adds nothing dramatically.....the action sequences are also pretty much impossible to follow.

They also beat and beat and beat you over the head with the notion of "The humans/soldiers are far worse than the Infected could ever be!" :roll: unlike the first film which had similar notions but on a much grander scale, and with MUCH more complexity. UGH, WORST HORROR SEQUEL EVER!!!

As we know, not all sequels are bad, and some can be very good. This movie was not!!! :roll: :P

Worst horror sequel ever? You haven't seen very many, have you? ;)

Honestly though, I was expecting you to be somewhat dissapointed, but not that much. Even with what you just wrote, I don't like it. Do they use all of the original music, or did they use a combination of old and new? If its the former, that's just lazy. :(

I thought it wasn't that bad, but then again I can't really remember that much of the first one.

I think it was pretty much just the old music, when they had music at all. There was also some stupid heavy metal/punk stuff on the soundtrack, which made it seem like an MTV video. (You can hear some of it in the trailers too.)


but then again I can't really remember that much of the first one.

You should see it again J! :) It doesn't even feel like a "Horror" film but some low-budget independent film (which it was) that has unbelievably horrifying things happening in it. (which it did.) :)

What? 28 Weeks Later is a great sequel, it's actually Fox Atomic's best movie they have so far.

Sorry, I just didn't care for it. :? I respect your opinion, however.

Hmm, so CH thought it was a great sequel, and Jeroen didn't think it was that bad. I wonder what I'll think of it.

Just as I thought, lazy. I don't mind when a sequel incorporates some music, but to use most of it, ugh. :(

The best way to explain my opinion on it is if 28 Days Later was made into a TV series this would be a good episode.
Somehow it doesn't feel like a full movie to me.

Just like Jurassic Park III felt to me...a great pilot for a TV show, but very little more.
