A He Says She Says Review by Knowles and Knowles

A new kind of Horror Movie from the team behind Trainspotting.

Story When Jim (Cillian Murphy) wakes up from a coma in a London hospital he finds his whole world has changed. A deadly virus has swept through England decimating the population. The virus is called Rage and it induces in its victims a terrible desire to kill any non-infected person in their path. Strong and rabid, the only way to get past the infected is to kill them first. Jim is saved by Selena (Naomie Harris), together they find Hannah (Megan Burns) and her Dad, Frank (Brendan Gleeson). This group of four travel across the country to try and find a refuge with an established army group, only to find that they have found just as much trouble with them as they would have had from the rabid Rage victims.

Her View Gore, vomitus gore, splattered gore and decaying bodies. This pretty much sums up this blood soaked movie. Once again Cillian Murphy (Disco Pigs) shines throughout this horrible movie. The tough on the outside, but gentle on the inside Selena played by Naomie Harris was wooden and unconvincing (although with this movie it would have been hard not to be). The music was great and the scenes showing the emptiness of a deserted England were really attention getting, but the great points of this movie were really over ridden by all the gore. This is definitely not one for the squeamish.

His View Cillian Murphy does an outstanding job in this film. The scenes of his character amidst a desolate London are fantastic and well portrayed. The cast are well supported by the unforgettable imagery shot entirely on digital video. Sure this film is full of gore, but it all goes well with the story and is not overdone. Another aspect of this film that is done well is the soundtrack, it is able to bring the viewer right into the story as if you were there.
