behavior. Looking at the [[InferredHolocaust last shot]] in the movie, for all we know, they ''did''.



*** Nobody knew [[spoiler:Andy had become a carrier]], since everyone who knew [[spoiler:Alice had been one]] was dead (though the fact that Andy's eye looked like the eye of someone infected should have tipped the pilot off that something was wrong with him). And the military definitely held the IdiotBall in a few places - herding all the civilians into one parking garage that obviously wasn't secure [[spoiler:given how easily Infected!Don broke in]] is almost a case of TooDumbToLive.
*** It depends on whether you believe the ends justify the means, particularly in a situation that's going to be FUBAR whatever you do to remedy it, but the U.S. military firing into the crowd makes it hard to root for the 'gun-wielding maniacs'. [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation Unless, of course, the soldiers are firing]] at the civilians because [[MercyKill they know they'll probably be infected]].
*** We saw at least one sniper MercyKill a fellow soldier that was getting swarmed by the infected.



*** Don did technically lie when he said he'd seen Alice die. He can't really be blamed as he was too preoccupied with getting the hell away to confirm her death.



** Don for some. He blames himself for [[spoiler: abandoning his wife to the Infected and then having to lie to his children about that. Add to the fact that he reunited with Alice, only to get infected, kill her, and chase down his children]]. Ouch.

* WhatAnIdiot: Sure, Don, kiss your infected wife, never mind she's an unaffected carrier of a virus that turns you into a raging murderous monster more or less instantaneously. Also, kudos to the military for leaving her room unguarded.

** Sure, US Army, go through the trouble of building and elaborate containment area for potentially infected survivors, and put in a confirmed carrier of the virus and proceed ''not to post any guards around her'', as well as granting regular civilians unrestricted access to said containment areas! What could possibly go wrong?

** Honestly, attempting to resettle the British Isles in the first place. If there's such a huge concern about what's outside the safe zone that a quarantine needs to be enforced, then a civilian population should not be there.

* DarkerAndEdgier: [[spoiler: This films [[DownerEnding ending]] In comparison to the "Theatrical Cut" of ''28 Days Later''. In the first installment the survivors manage to survive and the infected are beginning to die off. In here, not only does the virus make a resurgence, the military is unable to contain the infection and it begins to spread all over Europe. Otherwise, this films ending is about on par with the first installments [[BolivianArmyEnding original ending]].]]

** Sure, kids, break out of the safe area and sneak out into a deserted, ransacked Britain just 'cause. It's not like a quarantine is important or anything, and it's not like they ''told you exactly why they needed a quarantine.''

* ContestedSequel: While the film was generally well-received, there's a significant portion of fans who feel it paled in comparison to its prequel.
* IdiotPlot: Sure, go make out with your wife. Never mind the freaky eye or what she's been doing for the past months. Not to mention she probably knew that she was a carrier at that point or could kill an infected. Kudos to the military who leave her room unguarded, it's not like she carries a virus that killed dozens of millions the last time or anything.
* InferredHolocaust: [[spoiler:The infection has reached France]] by the end.
** [[spoiler: And assuming Andy's the one who spread it there-- and he probably is-- he and Tammy are likely dead.]]
* TheScrappy: The two kids in the movie. Not only were they largely responsible for the new outbreak of Rage Virus in Britain, but to make matters worse [[spoiler: their selfishness causes the rest of the world to get infected, too]]. And yet through all of this, they still are [[spoiler: [[EverybodyDies the only ones who make it out alive]]]].

* TheWoobie: Alice cannot catch a break in this movie. Her husband abandons her when an Infected separates them, and he just books it instead of trying to save her. She is immune, however, and flees back to her house in London where she stays in hiding for months. She is eventually found by the military, who bring her back to District 1 and plan on killing her to run tests on her corpse to find a cure. Beforehand, however, Don visits her to beg for her forgiveness for fleeing, then kisses her...[[spoiler: which causes him to become Infected and kill her in the most drawn out and painful death in the movie, all while she is strapped to a table. Then her body is lit on fire from the firebombing.]] Good lord.
** Don for some. He blames himself for [[spoiler: abandoning his wife to the Infected and then having to lie to his children about that. Add to the fact that he reunited with Alice, only to get infected, kill her, and chase down his children]]. Fuck..
