** The Infected wouldn't be able to cross the Bering Strait unless it completely froze over, though any advances from Russia to Canada via the North Pole will be checked. ** Also, the directors wanted any sequel, named [[28 ''28 Months Later]] Later'' to be set in russia, Russia, with the Infected just having reached it.it. Leaving ''plenty'' of time for Asia and Africa to be evacuated. ** All in all, there will be massive evacuations and disaster, but much slower than expected and some places better off than others, plus a few decades, maybe even over a century, to reform, but it seems as if it won't be that bad.

----* Actually, it depends on geography. ** France looks doomed, but the Infected don't seem to run unless they see food. Which means after they leave Paris, it won't be so difficult. France is separated (though not entirely) from Spain and Italy by the Pyrenees and the Alps, so not only would the Infected have slight trouble getting over them, the armies could slow them down. ** During that, the populations of Spain and Portugal (mostly) would be evacuated to European islands and the Azores. Most Italians would go to Corsica, Sicily and Sardinia, the Greeks and those in the Balkans area could go to Greek islands, as well as those previous mentioned; as long as the motorways between them were broken, the Danish could go to the Danish isles; the Scandinavians, as they would be the last in Europe to be Infected, would go to Iceland. ** The Suez canal, between Egypt and Arabia, would likely have all crossings broken, but if the Infected got to Africa, if they went west into the Sahara, they would be slowed down by the heat. The same would happen if they went through the Alps to Switzerland (the same reason that Switzerland has been a difficult country to invade). That way, some of Africa could be evacuated. ** In Asia, the Chinese, Koreans, Russians and South Asians could go to Japan, Indonesia, Seychelles and the Maldives, as well as the Indians going to Sri Lanka. The Infected would also be halted by the Russian winter, Himalayas and the deserts, namely the Indus Valley, the Cholistan desert and the Taklamakan desert. ** Also, the directors wanted any sequel, named [[28 Months Later]] to be set in russia, with the Infected just having reached it.

** Not even the Americas would be safe, really, considering that it wouldn't be impossible for the Infected to make it across the Bering Strait and begin spreading Rage across North America.

*** While true, a disease that virulent would normally KILL the infected but the Rage virus doesn't. Assuming that they die from starvation or dehydration, the time they could spread the disease would be at least a week or longer (based on the logic of the movies).

!!FridgeLogic * Don was clearly right that Alice shouldn't try to find the kid and justified in abandoning her when she refused to listen; even if by some miracle they'd made it out of that room without getting caught by the infected (it's difficult to see what Don could have done) there's simply no way that the kid could have made the sprint to the boat; it would be touch and go whether the adults would be able to make it. Given their escape plan is implied to be well-rehearsed, Don would have known this, and so too should Alice. * People complain that it was the kids who were responsible for bringing the infection into District 1, but it would have happened sooner or later anyway. It was only a matter of time before the soldiers would find Alice and bring her back, and things would have gone the way they did in the movie--all the kids did was speed it up. ** You're assuming that someone ''else'' would have kissed Alice? *** Don would still have kissed her (probably), no matter when or how she was found. Even if the kids hadn't escaped the safe zone and found her, the soldiers eventually would have. All it might have done was delay the inevitable, since apparently Don's kind of a moron. (As are the military, for not posting a frickin' guard at her door.) ** Eh, she might have eventually died of starvation or some other disease... she wasn't in that great of a shape when they found her, and her food supply was just lousy with maggots. * The kids have been called irresponsible for letting themselves be airlifted to France even though [[spoiler:Andy]] was a carrier, but neither one of them ''knew''. They didn't know anything about Alice's status as a carrier or what that meant; all they knew was that [[spoiler:Andy]] got bit and didn't turn crazy. ** The sister knew, or at least seemed aware of the possibility. When the pilot asks if they are safe to board, she purposefully tries to hide her little brother and the way it's shot implies she's trying to keep them from seeing his eyes. It would make no sense to hide him (especially right after being asked if they were 'safe' ie: not infected) unless she thought he was, and her awareness to hide his eyes really drives that home. * Why would the military herd all the civilians into the same parking garage? All it ''did'' take was one Infected to re-ignite the epidemic. Confining them to their apartments and locking them in would have prevented that, since any Infected who did get in wouldn't have found a lot of people to infect. And if they had to [[TooDumbToLive put them all]] in one place, why didn't they make sure all the doors were properly locked? It didn't take much effort for Don to get in.\\ \\ While we're at it, they say that dead corpses still have the virus, and Great Britain is covered with them, SO WHY DID THEY START MOVING PEOPLE BACK IN WHEN THERE ARE BODIES ALL OVER THE PLACE?! ** They cleared out the bodies in the places they were moving people into. Plus, it was highly unlikely that someone would, for example break out of the security, go into the uncleared zone, find an Infected corpse and eat it, get infected and re-enter the secure zone without being fired upon. * Also, how on earth do you have a possibly extremely dangerous woman quarantined, but don't have an armed guard with her at all times? !!FridgeHorror

TV Tropes is not a place for spreading political agendas. Gun control is at no point a part of the story.
* If we're looking at illogical IdiotBall holders, let's begin by asking why the British government has such an Orwellian system of gun control in the first place. Had the Brits been armed with anything but melee weapons, they might have stopped the infection before it decimated their island. Sheesh, you'd think fighting the Nazis would teach us that gun control was suicidally naive... ** Yes, because panicking citizens, most of them not having any militairy training whatsoever, firing randomly and probably missing most of their shots at everything that moves because it just might be something infected is really going to help things for everyone involved. Especially for the survivors who are, you know, shot, because a person with a gun thinks they're infected. Also, I fail to see what on earth nazi's have to do with a virus which turns people into unthinking monsters which beat everyone they see to death with their bare hands.
