STORYLINE: An action-thriller centered on the threat posed by a deadly disease and an international team of doctors contracted by the CDC to deal with the outbreak.
Holy Crap! Just what we need a sci-fi thriller that certainly hits home. Especially, on 9/11 weekend. The movie has a star-studded cast. Can you imagine Gwenth Paltrow and Matt Damon as a married couple? Jude Law issuing warning of an epidemic out of control!
The film certainly gives you WORST CASE SCENARIO EVER! What would you do in such event? To some it is full of a propaganda of what we are doing wrong in our daily lives. To others its about time a movie was made like this one. It is an eye-opener.
"The film itself is nothing new; there are multiple outbreak movies (Wolfgang Peterson, rather subtly, named his 1995 film ‘Outbreak’) but the fact that this movie is directed by Steven Soderbergh gives me a reason to actually check it out rather than dislike it straight away for it’s lack of originality." - Howard C. Adams
Maybe I should at least get my flu shot now.
