28 Days later is a film directed by acclaimed director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionare) which stars Cillian Murphy (Batman Beginds, The Dark Knight Series) as Jim, a paper courier who wakes from a coma to discover his home city of England is abandoned... except for the rage infected zombies. The rage virus creates a ravenous, zombie like state driving people mad and driving them essentially to tear people apart. Confused and scared, Jim finds Selena, another survivor. She is hardened by the pasts months devastation. Together they find Frank and his daughter Hannah, hold up in their apartment complex. The group decides to hit the road after hearing a radio broadcast from a group of soldiers claiming they have shelter and a cure for what has ravaged the entire world. The film is the first to feature running zombies, which makes for a riveting and intense scene when the group gets a flat tire in a tunnel and hundreds of the infected sprint toward them like rabid dogs. Eventually the group makes it out and to the gates of what seems to be an abandoned military post. Frank becomes infected when a crow drops infected blood into his eye, he turns and is shot by a soldier. Jim, Selena and the now fatherless Hannah are taken in by the soldiers. Eventually it becomes clear that the soldiers simply put out the broadcast to find women and more alarming, they kill any men that come along with whatever women show up. After a fight, Jim is taken out to be shot but escapes and climbs over the protective wall surrounding the compound. Selena and Hannah are assaulted and forced to wear dresses. Selena gives Hannah a Valium so she won't be too scarred by whatever happens. Later, Jim returns and opens the compound up to the infected. Several soldiers are killed. In one particularly gruesome scene, Jim confronts the man who intended to shoot him and jams his thumbs deep inside the man's eye sockets, killing him. Jim, Selena and Hannah escape the now overrun compound and find shelter in an abandoned house. 28 days later, the infected (who are still essentially living people) begin to starve and die out. A plane flies over their new home and a glimmer of hope is found.
