Being the die hard zombie movie aficionado I had to check out Danny Boyle's "28 Days Later". The premice is that a highly contagious, violent-psychosis-inducing virus called "Rage" is released by accident into the British population. The Infected (as they are termed) turn within 30 seconds of being exposed and go screaming monkey on whoever happens to be nearby. Our intrepid heroes weave through a now-abandoned London whacking The Infected with baseball bats, riot truncheons and machetes with the odd Molotov cocktail thrown in for good measure. Not MY first choice of weapons against opponents whose blood is potentially toxic. When they finally encounter the military soldiers mow down waves of Infected with their L-85s and GPMGs. Given this it's pretty evident that "Rage" wouldn't get very far on this side of the pond! But to the pacified Brits, who can't even react to physical assault or be charged equally with the assaulter, this premice holds stark terror! So if you love zombie movies like I do, do yourself a favor and pass on "28 Days Later"!

Equally absurd was "Signs", where farmer single dad and his all-growed-up younger brother cower in a dark root cellar with the kids while some skinny alien does a B&E into the house. Finally, said skinny hydrophobic alien is dispatched with a Louisville Slugger. Right....

I love zombies too and thought 28 Days Later rocked. It stands head and shoulders above anything Hollyweird has put out recently along with not having any actors from a WB show.

just goes to show you what happens when the population is disarmed. How pathetic that these people could not defend themselfs. If there was every a movie to show the need and justification for firearms in society, this is it. Substitite the virus "rage" for anti-social types who will be on the loose if a SHTF happens. crap even my Walther P22 loaded with CCI velociter would have kicked some ass in London.
