28 Weeks Later

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Doyle is talking to the helicopter pilot at the park, you can see another pilot on the left side of Doyle's head for a split second. (01:14:50)

Factual error: There is a point where the children travel to their home to get some things. They travel to SOUTH London but as they near their home, look at Canary Wharf in the background! The positioning of the buildings show they are in the EAST towards Dagenham area.

Revealing mistake: During the scene where the military loses control of London, and their snipers are told "all targets are free", you can see heavy padding beneath Infected/civilian victims' shirts, etc, as they're shot. Presumably it's to stop them injuring themselves when they fall over, or to hold apparatus for the blood effects, but it's too bulky to be part of the characters' clothing.

More quotes from 28 Weeks Later


Question: If the infected can sense the uninfected due to the uninfected smelling clean and scented (deodorant/perfume), wouldn't the closest approximation be to just stop bathing or showering, and not wearing deodorants/perfumes? Wouldn't one rather be dirty than dead? Am I over-simplifying the situation? Do the infected sense the uninfected using some other method in conjunction with the above, thereby nullifying my hypothesis above?

Chosen answer: I suspect that it's really not that simple. Remember that in the first film, Jim was lying alone in a hospital bed for some considerable time before waking to the deserted London. He would certainly not have smelt clean and fresh, yet he was still clearly detectable as prey by the infected. While being nice and clean makes it easy for them, it seems clear that it's not the sole indicator that triggers an attack.

Question: In the first movie the infected only stayed in the shadows and came out at night. How come the infected in this movie are running around in broad daylight?

Chosen answer: Nobody ever said they could only come out at night. As their food became scarce, they'd taken to daylight hunting as well.
