What's important is that mine was started first, so nah!

Just saw it...it wasn't nearly as scary as I thought it would be...and the ending was kind of gay.
Is there an alternate set of endings? In the one I saw, the soldiers get infected and everyone ends up living happily ever after...?

I think that was a good ending, specially when the aircraft start to appear and it turns out our island was just quarantened. A nice feelgood upbeat ending, nice counter to the terrying images of a dead London earlier on, (talk about the valley of the shadow of death). In the whole movie I found the lightless London at night and the maddened-animal desperation of ex-human beings th most scary aspects of the movie.

Anyway, this is a thread for arguing why there are two 28DL threads, so stop hijacking ;)

ouch, you're mean.

So I've been told.

Watched the "alternate endings last night"...one where he dies, one only on storyboard where there is a "cure". Given the three options, I guess the one they put on the disc is fine.

So--it was only on the British Isle that this was happening? I must have totally missed that part...when was that revealed?

Also, if your main concern is not getting zombie blood on you, why are you using a FUCKING MACHETE as your chief weapon????

A club or a cudgel or some such would make much more sense, doncha think?
That really bugged me.

Sniper rifle would be a sign of forward thinking, though you'd be fucked if the maniacs ever got up close. Remember that bit nearer the end when the squaddies (grunts) had the guy and that other soldier tied to a radiator? Mabe the soldiers Scottish accent lost you, but he was saying- rather he was babbling about how somewhere life is going on as usual because they "fucking quaranteened us!"

"Think about it, what would you do with a diseased little island in the middle of the north sea..."

06-11-2003, 15:54:40
Ah...ok...I guess that makes sense. But I have a hard time believing that you could quarantine such a rapidly onsetting disease on an island that wasn't that far by boat to a continent. I think people would want the fuck off that island ASAFP!!!!
