While it doesn't have the initial blunt impact of Danny Boyle's original (he only produced this time around), "Weeks" benefits from the focused direction of Juan Carlos Fresnadillo ("Intacto"), strong central performances (led by Boyle regular Robert Carlyle) and the larger narrative canvas which takes on military conspiracy and family dynamics alongside the lingering threat of infection. And it's hard to argue with the supporting cast, which includes Jeremy Renner, Harold Perrineau, Rose Byrne, Imogen Poots and Idris Elba.
