Two Disaster Movies

Hi Friends, I happen to check out two 'disaster movies' - "Right At Your Door" and "28 Weeks Later".

"Right At Your Door" reminded me of another disaster movie "Cloverfield" which is based in New York and was excellent. This one is low budget indie movie, based in Los Angeles, it is mostly indoors and more of the drama than a thriller. It is all about the relationship, chaos, death and sacrifice. The characters did a marvelous job to create the sense of panic and chaos in a finite setting, the credit also goes to the director. It is enoyable movie, nothing great, not a blockbuster or massic movie. (7/10)

"28 Weeks Later" is sequel to Danny Boyles "28 Days Later", as the name suggest it depicts the UK 28 weeks after the virus ourbreak. This one has more action and gets down to business right away, however the erie feeling that one gets in the first part is missing. This one has more gore and zombie fights. Not as good as the first one but still a good watch. (6/10)
