Soon after her return from a business trip to Hong Kong, Beth Emhoff dies from what is a flu or some other type of infection. Her young son dies later the same day. Her husband Mitch however seems immune. Thus begins the spread of a deadly infection. For doctors and administrators at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, several days pass before anyone realizes the extent or gravity of this new infection. They must first identify the type of virus in question and then find a means of combating it, a process that will likely take several months. As the contagion spreads to millions of people worldwide, societal order begins to break down as people panic.

I picked this movie because Tony recommended it

What I liked the Most? The concept of the movie

What I liked the Least? The concept of the movie – it scared the crap out of me

Review: It was an excellent concept and mostly delivered, it was just slow. Really slow. This is one of those I would have preferred to read the book & let my imagination take over ones. It was a good movie, but a little cluttered and not it the good way of say Stephen King’s The Stand.

Recommended to: Eh – watch it or not – your choice
