In this film from director Danny Boyle and writer Alex Garland, a powerful virus is unleashed on the British public following a raid on a primate research facility by animal rights activists. Transmitted in a drop of blood and devastating within seconds, the virus locks those infected into a permanent state of murderous rage. Within 28 days the country is overwhelmed and a handful of survivors begin their attempts to salvage a future, little realising that the deadly virus is not the only thing that threatens them...

awful transfer - stick with DVD!
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 06/02/2014 12:14:13
Im not going to review the film itself,,we all know how very good it is. The blu ray transfer are simply the poorest I have ever seen.28 days later's transfer is simply awful. The transfer makes the film look like a cheap, awful B movie from the 70's.Blurred,very grainy. I then put on the normal DVD of the film, and it actually looked better!
I own film films 50 years plus old, with far better tranfers. Advice - stick to your normal DVD copies, as the upgrade on your blu ray players is far better to watrch than this.

Quite simply the best British film ever and even better than Get Carter,Italian Job and Shaun Of The Dead.
Watched it over and over and gets better and scarier every time.
Will never be beaten for me.

Stunning Film, but blu ray?
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 21/03/2011 12:03:34
This is a stunning film. If you live in London as I do found it more chilling than someone who would live in Devon. The reason for the bad picture quality is that this film was made with digital films and not conventional cameras. As this saved time and money. Works very well and gives a nice feeling to the film. I would suggest getting this on DVD if you are overly fussed about the picture quality as it will look the same. Also the price of the DVD helps.

Just Buy The DVD. The Picture Quality is The Same.

I love this film and i have since it came out years ago. I was looking forward to its release on blu-ray. However i think the picture quality on this blu-ray is exactly the same as on dvd. (I put this down to this being the style of the film, gritty and raw looking) also the film was a budget film by "movie" standards so i dont think it will ever look better than it did on dvd. There are also no special features on the disc other than those on the normal dvd release. Save your money! You really will be disapointed with the picture quality(regardless of your television or blu-ray player.) :(
Still a great film though!
Turns out the film was shot on a standard deffinition digital camera so there never can or will be a real high deffinition copy of the movie to own.

STICK WITH DVD!!!

The quality is as about as good as it can get on this as a majority was filmed using a DVD device so if you already have the DVD version you might aswell stick with it unless of course if you want the ultimate in sound thats where the blu ray beats the old dvd counterpart!!!

I knew exactly what i was buying with this Blu Ray. I knew there would be little or no difference with the picture but i wanted the DTS soundtrack. Awesome, so many parts that were good before really had me leap out of the seat. Wallop!!!
Also, don't knock it to much, if you play them side by side the Blu Ray is a hell of a lot darker. 28 Weeks looks great by the way, don't let this put you off. It starts off looking the same but you realise the Blu Ray effect as Robert Carlyle darts out of the window. What a turd by the way, i wouldn't leave my wife in that house. I'm not doing my smegging ironing.

Blu Ray More Like Poor DVD
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 20/07/2009 20:35:13
Now this is a great film i was so pleased when it came to blu ray.
Ok this maybe a great film but HD 1080p Blu Ray!! Rubish not happy at all with the quality of the HD.
Stick with DVD....

Great movie, very poor picture quality
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 08/02/2009 21:04:21
To sum it up, the picture is very poor and i find it hard to understand why it was released on blu ray, bearing in mind how it was filmed.
I would say stick to the dvd release on an upscaler, as the picture does not get any better than you have seen on dvd releases.
For die hard fans, you may wish to over look this and still buy on blu ray, as the sound does seem improved, but this could be my only praise.
Hope this honest review helps

Great movie. One of the best post apocalyptic horror movies of the past decade.
People keep saying the picture quality is bad, and i agree that the blu ray version is.
This film, whilst being made, was not shot in hd. Canon xl1 cameras were used which were standard definition dv tape cameras. They were used for the grainy look, to add to the effect. Due to this, there is no hd version of the film.
On dvd this film will look fine and a standard tv. Watching the blue ray version on a hd television will make the quality of the picture look poor, because it is upscaling standard definition film to a higher resolution.
It will be impossible to get a good quality hd version of this film, as it was not filmed in hd.
I recommend you buy this though, fantastic film, one of danny boyles best

Great Film, Bad Transfer
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 06/01/2009 23:29:07
I think everything has been said already, great movie but the quality of it has left me angry. I already have the film on dvd and was really looking forward to watching it in hd, but no, i sit here bitterly disappointed with my purchase.
