** The Apache helicopter was firing at a car fleeing from fire and poison gas [[SarcasmMode because a bunch of insane Infected would totally do that...]]

** The Apache helicopter was firing at a car fleeing from fire and poison gas [[SarcasmMode because a bunch of insane Infected would totally do that...that.]] Although they probably weren't taking chances, considering that the Infected are at least [[ItCanThink smart enough to head into the underground to survive the firebombing.]]

** It should be noted that ultimately, the Harris family was responsible for the outbreak; Tammy and Andy only had to follow orders and not go outside the district, and [[spoiler: Alice might not have been infected in the first place if Don had saved her. Or just not kiss her while in quarantine.]]
** It can also be said that if Doyle, Flynn, and Scarlet had followed orders then [[spoiler: then the virus would not have escaped to Europe with Andy as the carrier.]]



** [[IdiotBall Possibly because herding everyone together in a confined space at an accessible level was one of the worst things they could do.]]



* EyeScream: This sequel plays this trope horrifyingly straight. [[http://vimeo.com/17083028 After reuniting with his wife]], [[spoiler:Don gets infected by the virus and kills Alice ''by gouging her eyes out.'' This is a direct comparison to the first movie's hero, who does the same to a soldier ''without'' being infected.]]
** Although she might have rather [[spoiler: died from him beating the shit out of her first and then ripping her trachea off by biting.]]

* IdiotBall: Quite apart from the above example, if either the Chief Medical Officer or Sgt. Doyle had bothered to explain why the children were so important, even to the children, someone might have been more careful and we might just have avoided [[spoiler:the infection of France and the breach of the sea border which was holding back the infection.]]

*** Easier, actually - have you seen the security in American schools these days?
*** In the beginning of the outbreak, the civilians are herded into a containment area, and the doors are locked and chained shut. Well - ''one'' of the doors...
**** The fact that that was even the security protocol. We are shown earlier that everyone has their own reinforce-able apartment cells. It would have made a thousand times more sense for them to all be sent back to their rooms with guards manning the hallways.



*** See the ItCanThink entry below for why this is actually plausible.
*** Not to mention [[KillEmAll Code Red]] was in effect. The military gave the order that [[IDidWhatIHadToDo all civilians were]] [[MoralEventHorizon now targets.]]



** AllThereInTheManual. A line in ''28 Days Later: The Aftermath'' indicates that while the Rage virus causes the higher brain functions to atrophy after a few days, victims still retain a lot of their reasoning skills until then. Presumably as recent infectees, Don and the others in ''28 Weeks Later'' hadn't yet reached that stage.
* UsefulNotes/TheLondonUnderground: Tammy and Andy are forced to travel through an Underground packed with corpses.



* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Rampant.
** [[spoiler:You singlehandedly thwarted the attempt to repopulate Britain ''and'' spread the infection to continental Europe]]! I hope you're happy!

** Later, Major Scarlett was forced to navigate through a dark, dangerous subway [[spoiler:to prevent being killed by Apache helicopters patrolling the poison gas-filled streets. This results in an infected Don ambushing and beating her to death when she was searching for Andy. The children were able to make it to safety.]]



* TooDumbToLive: TheVirus wiped out the entire population of Britain in under a ''month'', but apparently despite the fact that the Virus was only contained due Britain being an island, the U.S. Military deemed a mere ''six months'' to be enough time to adequately classify it as ''safe''. Realistically, Britain would have been kept under a UN Quarantine for ''decades'' if not ''centuries'' to eliminate any lingering trace of TheVirus before any attempt at recolonisation began.
** Despite its virulence, the disease was limited to infection by contact with bodily fluids, heavily limiting the risk under proper safety precautions. This combined with the pressure of the massive refugee population would have pushed the recolonization forward despite the risks. The IdiotBall is grabbed only when it's made apparent just how poor the security measures actually are, failing even at the most mundane level.

*** It's understandable that the kid couldn't lose the infected, as it's stated there are dozens of them and he's been riding his bike for many miles to try to escape, so he could easily be tired and not be as fast, plus it's a rural area with a lot of open space and not many places to hide. The real incredibly idiotic part comes from the kid and especially the adults after they've allowed the boy into the house. He just specifically told them there is a veritable horde of infected on their way and they are not far. The smart thing would be to gather as many supplies as quickly as they could and then go into a basement, attic or just a second floor room away from any windows and just stay quiet and out of sight until the infected leave the area. Instead, the entire group decide to invite the kid to the dinner table, where they all speak in not hushed tones and one of the women starts peeking out, so it is of no surprise at all that the infected found them.

As implied by the title, the story of '''''28 Weeks Later''''' -- the sequel to the 2002 horror film ''Film/TwentyEightDaysLater'' -- begins twenty-eight weeks after the events of the first film, where a literal {{hate plague}} ravaged Britain: a U.S.-led NATO force has established a foothold in the Isle of Dogs, where it's started the process of repatriating the countless British citizens left stranded after leaving their country during the Rage virus outbreak. Those who return end up quarantined in "District One" under heavy surveillance by US soldiers; Don Harris (played by Creator/RobertCarlyle), one of the quarantined, became one of the few people trapped in London who managed to survive the outbreak. Haunted by the memory of being forced to abandon his wife during an attack by a horde of infected Rage carriers, Don ends up reunited with his two children, Tammy and Andy, when they become new residents of District One.

A sequel called ''28 Months Later'' has been planned by the creators, but it has been lingering in DevelopmentHell ever since the release of ''Weeks''.

* FakeAmerican: Australian Rose Byrne and, somewhat oddly, Briton Idris Elba as American soldiers.



* HeyItsThatGuy: Looks like [[TheHurtLocker Sergeant James']] 2nd tour didn't end well.
** Maybe he should have picked up a [[Film/TheAvengers bow and arrow]] instead of a sniper rifle...
** [[{{Trainspotting}} Frank Begbie]] kickstarts the ZombieApocalypse.
** General Stone would later make a comeback [[{{Film/PacificRim}} leading a motley crew of Jaegers against invading Kaiju.]]

* PoorCommunicationKills: [[spoiler:Doyle]] might not have been torched if he had yelled out "US friendly, hold your fire!"
** Perhaps, but [[spoiler: he was standing in a cloud of poison gas, so he was dead either way.]]
** He was also helping Scarlet and the kids escape [[spoiler: while Code Red was initiated. They might've killed him anyway.]]
