Six months after the rage virus was inflicted on the population of Great Britain, the US Army helps to secure a small area of London for the survivors to repopulate and start again. But not everything goes to plan.
Then again, so did chapter 1, albeit the latter, and not the former(unlike this one), portion of it. Aftermath? Sure. Decimation? Where? These are both on the DVD of 28 Weeks Later, and no, I don't know about the middle one(or if this is the last of them that there is), nor have I read the graphic novel(s?) that I understand these are animated adaptations of. This is well-done, a nice dynamic quality and energy to the drawings and the look(and it isn't painfully overstylized like the one preceding it was). It manages a reasonable level of tension throughout, if some of it is lost on account of this explaining something that was unclear(and should remain so, in my opinion) in the 2002 film(and the 2007 one, for that matter). Still, it has a cool little tactical duel that is fairly satisfying. The characters are credible and we get a basic idea of who they are in a short space of time without it feeling rushed, and the amount of plot is also appropriate to the running time of five minutes without this feeling empty. Voice acting is good. The concept is fine, if nothing to go nuts over(the ones on the I Am Legend disc are far superior, well, all but one). This is about a man in post-apocalyptic, virus-stricken England trying to survive the presence of the Infected, as he has discovered something about them that he can use to his advantage. But he is not alone. There is a little brutal, bloody, gory violence and disturbing content in this. I recommend it to fans of the two movies. 7/10
