Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film 28 Weeks Later

Where Romero's films were all different in emotional tone (the scares of Night, the farce of Dawn, the bleakness of Day), each part of this series is rich in its blend of light emotions with darker ones. They aren't afraid to have its characters joke around in one scene, romance in the next, and then follow it with a setpiece that scares you shitless. Too many films have one emotion only, these run the gamut.
