In this sequel to "28 Days Later" six months have passed, and the rage virus seems to have been defeated. A small number of people have survived the epidemic that turned people into flesh-eating maniacs. However, the survivors soon discover that one of them is a carrier of the virus, while having immunity from its effects. With Jeremy Renner, Harold Perrineau Jr, Robert Carlyle, Rose Byrne and Catherine McCormack. Directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo. [1:31]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - A man and a woman have sex: we see her bare back and the side of her bare breast as she thrusts on top of him, and a sniper watches them through his scope.
 A nude woman is scrubbed in a shower (we see her bare back, buttocks and breasts).
 A husband and wife kiss a few times.

VIOLENCE/GORE 9 - When people are infected with a "rage" virus they vomit blood and goo, their eyes turn red and they become maniacal and try to infect the non-infected.
 A man, who has been infected begins to foam at the mouth, he writhes, yells and flails on the floor, his eyes turn red, he vomits blood, and he attacks a woman punching her several times, biting her and gouging her eyes out with his thumbs, slowly (there is a lot of blood in this scene).
 A woman stands near the wall of a house, and she is grabbed by someone from the outside, who pulls on her arm until it snaps off (we see the bone and blood and tissue and she screams). A woman's arm is bitten off, blood spurts, and she vomits a large amount of blood, thrashes and begins to attack other people.
 An elderly man is knocked to the ground by several infected people, who bite and pull him apart (we hear him scream, we see blood squirt and he thrashes).
 Many infected people run through streets and are shot by snipers (blood spurts and we see the arm of one person shot off, with blood splattering and tissue left dangling). A man with a crowbar attacks several infected people striking them hard on the head and body (we hear squishing and cracking and blood spurts and sprays).
 A man is chased by many infected people, he jumps onto a boat, the infected jump also trying to catch him, and another man who's in the boat is pulled out and attacked (we see blood in the water); the other man speeds away in the boat and it appears that someone is struck by the blades of the motor (the water turns red).
 A man panics and clings onto the bottom of a helicopter that's in the air, the helicopter seems to lose control but it stabilizes and flies through large crowds of infected people, slicing them up with its blade (blood splatters everywhere and we see heads and limbs being lopped off); the man clinging from the bottom is sprayed with blood and then falls into the crowd and is devoured.
 A man is sprayed with flames and burns; he falls to his knees in flames, and then onto the ground while a boy and a girl watch in terror. When a city is firebombed we see flames blow through tunnels and into a building (in one room a bloody corpse burns). A city is firebombed and we see people being engulfed in waves of flames.
 An infected man with blood streaming from his mouth pounds on the window of a room where two children are hiding; the children scream and the man is shot in the head (blood splatters on the window).
 A man is shot several times (blood spurts and sprays and he collapses). An elderly woman is shot (we see her lying dead on the ground), a man is shot, and a woman is shot in the leg (we see blood on her leg).
 People are evacuated from a compound: they panic and crowd onto stairs and into a train, and infected people force their way into the area and begin attacking many people, who are then they transform and continue attacking (we hear a lot of crunching and gnashing).
 A man attacks another man, drools blood on his face, gouges his eyes out, and the man lies still, but then vomits blood, transforms, and attacks other people. A boy is attacked, and he thrashes as he is bitten.
 A woman and a boy are trapped in a room, many infected people force their way in, we see the woman pounding on a window and screaming, trying to get out but she is pulled away (it is implied that the two have been attacked and we see this scene a few more times throughout the movie). A cloud of gas spreads through streets, four people hide in a car, and the many infected people who pound on the car trying to get them are overcome by the gas and fall to the ground.
 A boy finds a woman hiding behind a bed (she has bloody scabs on her face and a bloody nose). A girl reaches into the pocket of the skeletal remains of a body to pull out keys and several large beetles skitter out. A boy walks through an abandoned house, and he sees maggots wriggling in a bowl of food.
 A boy has a bad dream about his mother being alive (he sees her with bloody wounds on her face then she pulls the skin off her face to reveal his face).
 Three people walk through a pitch-black tunnel and stairs, they step on bodies (we hear crunching and cracking), two of them fall and they are separated, and one of them is struck repeatedly by someone with a gun and is beaten to death.
 A boy and a girl walk across the underpinnings of a bridge, they walk through abandoned streets, the girl enters a restaurant, and finds decomposing food and the skeletal remains of a body. We see body filled body bags being tossed into a flaming pile.
 Heavily armed military are shown at an airport as people de-plane. Armed snipers watch people from rooftops and peer in their windows. A boy pounds on a door screaming to be let in.
 A boy talks about his parents chasing him and wanting to kill him. A woman remembers being chased by many infected people. A boy walks through a street where people are shooting at other people that are around him, and he runs and hides in a building along with other people.
 We see a hypodermic needle go into a woman's arm and blood is drawn into a tube. A woman has what looks like a bite mark on her arm. A woman is scrubbed harshly while being sprayed (she screams and cries from the pain).
 A man lunges at another man while growling and snarling, a couple of times (he does this as a joke). A woman fears for the lives of her children (they are not with her).

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.




INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
