28 Weeks Later - Doyle's Sacrifice

After escaping the firebombing of District One, our characters break into an abandoned car to escape the chemical gas released to kill the infected. Doyle(Jeremy Renner)gets out to attempt push-starting the vehicle as soldiers armed with flamethrowers get closer. The engine finally starts as Doyle is engulfed by a large ball of flame. The children get a close-up view of Doyle burning to death and collapsing to the ground as they drive away. A brutal but necessary demise for one of the best characters in the film. Doyle sacrificed himself in order to get the others to safety. His death also gives the story an extra boost as it leaves the kids without a strong male character to lead them the rest of the way. A very underrated "fast-moving zombie" movie(they're actually biologically infected people), 28 Weeks Later is entertaining from the thrilling and suspenseful opening scene to the last haunting image.
