28 Days Brief Review
If you are only interested in "Viggo-sightings," you may be disappointed--Mortensen is billed second to Bullock in the credits, but his role is relatively small. Still the acting, directing and story are good and I enjoyed the film.

28 Days Movie Trailer - In case you're wondering whether to watch the film this little trailer gives you the highlights. Gotta look real hard to see Viggo's two split second appearances.
Celluloid Haven: 28 Days - Movie review in both Spanish and English plus stills (screen captures) and one audio clip: "These are just things that you've done, not who you are. People make mistakes, you know. Who you are is fine. More than fine."

Films of Viggo Mortensen: 28 Days - Two reviews of 28 Days, both of which question the realism and integrity of the film. "It is a comedy about a serious issue which is a travesty in itself that needs to be overlooked if to be enjoyed purely as entertainment."
Still they enjoyed Viggo as Eddie: "Sandra Bullock confessed that she kept making mistakes deliberately in a scene where she and Mortensen kiss so they had to run the scene again and again. The result is a picture perfect kissing scene in a film that often tests viewer suspension of disbelief and patience."
MovieWeb: 28 Days - A dozen nice high-resolution still shots from the film plus basic background information. Unfortunately only one of the stills features Viggo Mortensen as "Eddie." Site includes movie discussion forum.

28 Days Video Clips
Apologies for the slight buzz on these; they were captured from a VHS tape which doesn't seem to agree with my equipment. I'll try to redo them later when I have the DVD but in the meantime they're not too bad I hope.
28d-01: Eddie arrives - Eddie Boone arrives at the rehab facility. He found Gwen lying on the ground outside the clinic and has carried her in with him. "You can't bring a girl into treatment with you, Eddie." "Wasn't goin' to keep her." (00'15, 436 KB)
28d-08: More than fine - Gwen is beating herself up over things she's done. Eddie: "Those are just things you've done, not who you are. People make mistakes, you know. Who you are is just fine. More than fine." (00'28, 552 KB)
28 Days Photo Gallery
Most of the screen captures are from the Viggo Obsession or Sagra websites (see links above). Others are studio publicity photos that can be found in many sites around the net. In several cases I've color-corrected or improved brightness/contrast from the original download.
