Strange new contest (in Contests)

Prize is 250k. Non taxable income.

Q: Right now I am 1/2 way through the movie 28 Weeks Later.

It is a good movie however there is a HUGE plot hole that really irks me. I like movies that do not defy logic but try to follow it.

So, what is the plot hole I am typing about?

First post to describe it, gets the money.

And BTW: If you have not seen the film and plan to--- >

Take your pic, lol:

1. How did Jim survive in a coma? Who left the keys under the door?

2. Why did that car have its alarm on?

3. Why didn't the group find a better car?

4. How did Jim have a baseball bat in England?

5. Why didn't they look for better weapons (at the police station {they have guns for emergencies I think})?

6. Why didn't they raid a supermarket earlier?

7. Why didn't the soldiers greet Jim and his friends at the blockade/change their radio message to indicate the location of their fortress?

8. Why didn't anyone try shortwave radio? Military radio? Why didn't anyone else in the world hear the message?

9. As the "new age" soldier said, how could the disease have been transmitted overseas? Are you going to let a lunatic on a plane? The Chunnel? Could the infected have infected animals?

10. Why were the soldiers so horny after less than a month? And is there "a future" in raping the women?

(note, LOL I just understood "these eggs are off," from the leader.)

11. Why on Earth would Jim let an infected person into the house where his buddies are?

I got that from google, but there were multiple things in that movie that confoosed me! Those included.

QBRanger April 26 2008 10:06 PM EDT


It was 28 Weeks Later. Not days.

Edy fixed it.

QBRanger April 26 2008 10:07 PM EDT

And try to think why I would be irked.

Give me that reason also if you want.

Oh, haven't seen that movie yet, lol. Darn!

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 26 2008 10:19 PM EDT

How did that woman get all the way back to the house? 0.o

Cube April 26 2008 10:32 PM EDT

Oh wow my friends watched it yesterday, dang I should've watched it

QBRanger April 26 2008 11:17 PM EDT

nope so far. I have yet to finish it, going out for the nite.

AdminQBVerifex April 26 2008 11:53 PM EDT

How did Alice stay alive when all the other Zombies died of starvation? Yeah, I dunno. Sounds like crap to me.

lostling April 26 2008 11:55 PM EDT

spent the most of my time in that movie theatre shaking my head... the stupid camera keeps shaking... gave me a ton of headaches...

I can't imagine that you were thrilled with the Army's inability to follow quarantine procedures when dealing with a survivor from the infected zone.

QBRanger April 27 2008 12:04 AM EDT

Thank you Thrak.

How the hell did the dad get to the wife with his "all access pass".
No guards guarding the survivor that they knew was infected?

QBRanger April 27 2008 12:05 AM EDT

QBRanger (Koyaanisqatsi) thrak YOU very much (Bozo1) $250000 12:04 AM EDT

Thraklight Resonance April 27 2008 12:06 AM EDT

Much appreciated.

I like plot holes, one of my favourites is in the classic "war of the worlds" both new and old. When we go on holidays we take shots but this advanced civilization was unaware of the risks????

QBOddBird April 27 2008 2:27 AM EDT

They're exploring, like we did when we encountered malaria in various countries.

They'll be back. WotW 2!

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 27 2008 5:31 AM EDT

God, 28 Weeks later sucked...

Wasp April 27 2008 5:41 AM EDT

The better one is towards the end, they drove all that way in the car, went down the station and who happens to be there.... none other then the dad? Has he got a jetpack or something? That film was a load of crap.

Wasp April 27 2008 5:43 AM EDT

Just as a side note. From the first one when they went to the supermarket why was all the fruit fresh? That really got on my nerves. Sorry for double post!

Adminedyit [Superheros] April 27 2008 7:05 AM EDT

irradiated fruit, the guy even said something about it

TheHatchetman April 27 2008 8:22 AM EDT

"They'll be back. WotW 2!"

Hopefully it takes thousands more years... =/
