Best film I've seen in years, par none. Great story line, great direction, acting, etc. This is a tesnse film that kept me on the edge of my seat. All the actors are low key and thus more true to life, no typical Hollywood glitz here. See it as soon as you can!

Food for Thought, and vice versa. Closest yet to a realistic model of what might happen. On The News: bird flu in China appears to spread person-to-person. Some people are bored with the idea and Fast Forward. To the FF'rs, please don't try to invade my Survivalist shelter, someday.

Although this film might appear to be a slightly more sophisticated take on the deadly virus meme than, say, “Outbreak”—and featuring an A-list ensemble cast—it is actually something a bit more peculiar than that: it’s a film in which the protagonist never actually appears. That protagonist is, of course, the virus itself. Although every character’s story revolves around the deadly outbreak—from the unfortunate Patient Zero (Gwyneth Paltrow) to the compassionate WHO doctor (Marion Cotillard) to the earnest CDC investigator (a disturbingly stiff Kate Winslet) to the muckraking blogger (Jude Law) who sees a conspiracy at work —the film tells the story of the virus: its insinuation into the world population, the havoc it wrecks on humanity, the race to find a vaccine, and the ultimate resolution. Steven Soderbergh creates an appropriate sense of chaotic detachment, mirroring what in all likelihood would actually happen in the event of such an outbreak, and he quite realistically depicts the almost bureaucratic way in which such a pandemic would be “managed,” leaving us with a sense that a global viral outbreak would prove to be more than “just” a health crisis. What is most chilling about this film is its eerie verisimilitude and its uncanny portrayal of business-as-usual amidst the calamity of a global catastrophe.

Previews for this movie looked really good, but the actual movie is awful! NOTHING HAPPENS! I thought I would be freaked out afterwards because of the whole virus thing and how easily it can spread, but this movie was so bad that I didn't even care! I thought I would be a germaphob because it was supposed to be so freaky, but it wasn't. Toward the end I just fast-forwarded through and I still got the jest of it. The end was just stupid, although it did show where the virus started which was interesting I guess, but that was about it. Just don't waste your time watching's not worth it!
