Honestly I wasnt that satisfied with the ending, after the chick and the guy died I felt it was already a pretty sad ending, then the virus goes to europe and I was like wow, this is depressing, I mean even the first one at least had a happy ending.

QFT I was pissed when the dude died but I definatly didn't expect it. I didn't expect the infection to spread to Europe either.

After the guy died I thought it was pretty obvious the chick was gonna die too, but I wasnt expecting the guy to die until they reached the car, and I mean true it was nice to have something unpredictable but then even after all that it spreads to the rest of Europe and I was just kind of like ah crap, that wasnt good.

I definitely thought this has been one of the best movies to come out so far this spring.
That's why in the movie they said rats and dogs still had the virus... and in the first one the monkeys had it -_-

actually, they said there were rats and wild dogs all over the city, but it had not spread to any other species. Also, its possible to infect monkeys with viruses that they would not normally have any chance of contracting in the wild.

Actually in the movie they said, "They said all thats left out there is rats and dogs."

Also Danny Boyle himself said the virus only affects PRIMATES, meaning monkeys, humans, apes, etc. Wikipedia it.

My take on the movie in seven words:

Save your money and rent it later.

i just watched it, and there were some parts that made me go WHAT THE ****!

Like when they went out the ****ing compound to get a pic of there mom. Or how the doors could pretty much take no weight. Also it REALLY REALLY pissed me off how that mans wife had NO GUARDS, NO CAMERAS, and no ****ing doors locked for only the super high ups to gain access. Over all I think the first was more thought out and had NO moments when you go "WHY WHY WHY?" The first was better.

you do understand that him shooting the otehr sharp shooter was a mercy killing and is a totally different out look on that situation then one of killing infected. Take 2 seconds to think about what was going on before you make retarded assumptions

I thought the reason he stopped killing the infected was cause

1. there were too many

2. He saw the other sniper get eaten by the infected and mercy killed him

3. He almost shot the kid on accident

4. He ran out of ammo for his M-14.

*Warning, Opinions Ahead*

Spoiler: (Highlight this box to see the hidden message.)

What I thought:

Plot: The plot was way to linear. The reason the first one was soooo good, was because of it was unpredictable. This movie, from the second you saw the mom, basically told you how the virus was coming back, how it was going to be spread, and how things were going to go down.

The fact that the soldiers quarantined the population in a basement seems to just have been the director's afterthought into how to make the virus spreading seem wild. Also, the use of thousands of quick-cuts and strobe light effects made the movie seem like a fly-by action movie.

Also, the fact that a guard wasn't waiting outside by the mom was rediculous to me. Here you have the cure for the virus, and she's stuck in an empty hallway? Wtf guys.

The originality came in with the "survivors" (the group with Doyle), however one second there would be 12 of them, the next there'd only be 4-5. Just such a strange inconsistency. The whole "sniper on the roof" device really sidetracked the movie. While the original movie, and this one in general, can be seen as a critique of the brutality of man and the insanity of mass panic, the scenes of the helicopter dude and Doyle's shooting of the sniper just seemed trite.

The party's like running through the streets of London with the gas all around them was interesting, but it was just bizarrre. Also, and I'm sure everyone had a huge WTF moment at this, when they're in the subway, you could not tell what the **** was going on for like 2 minutes, and then all of a sudden, the zombie dad was using her own gun to kill her. WTF.

Characters: The kids were alright, the girl was beautiful but the boy was annoying. There were like 200 close ups of the girl which also got kinda old. Doyle was a really good character, it's just his character really wasn't developed. Neither was the helicopter pilot's. You had one scene of him looking up at a picture of his wife, and from that the director expects you to know him. The "everyone lives in one building" thing also diminished the feeling of closeness with the dad and the two kids, which overall was the most unpleasant part of the film, not really caring what happens to the characters in general.


Final thought: The first one was better. It was cool how it spread to Europe, and how the world is totally ****ed now.
