28 Days Later, A Review

I saw 28 Days Later last night. First, let me get the bad stuff out of the way.

I got there about 5 minutes early. I brought a book in thinking I'd get to read a few pages before the movie starts. When I walk into the theater there's some "show" playing on the screen. The "show" is a long string of not-so-cleverly disguised advertisements for TV shows, Coca-Cola, and a ghastly invention called "lidRock" where you get a mini-CD in the lid of your drink. On the CD are the latest "rock smash hits" by the likes of Celine Dion and some other focus-group musicians. I thought maybe I'd have to endure a slide-show and maybe some Cinema Radio Network crap. What I got was a multi-media, digital, surround stream of fucking products crammed down my throat for 15 minutes.

Then there's this "special" trailer about the set designer for some Oscar Winning movies begging people to think twice before pirating movies. You're marketing to the wrong demographic, dipshits.

In walks this guy with a 7 year-old and a 4 year-old girl. I started thinking I might have gotten the wrong idea about what the movie was about.

So the things I didn't like had nothing to do with the actual movie.

As far as the movie went, I really liked it. It got straight to the point and didn't really try to hold my hand. The lead actress was powerful and convincing. The lead actor was naked alot and was cool apart from that. The jump-out-of-your-seat parts were very effective. There were some moral issues dealt with.
