About the Movie
When Beth Emhoff (Gwyneth Paltrow) returns to Minneapolis from business in Hong Kong, what she thought was jet lag takes a virulent turn. Two days later, shes dead in the ER and the doctors tell her shocked and grieving husband (Matt Damon) they have no idea why. Soon more cases are reported as the virus begins to spread. Researchers mobilize to break the code of this unique biological pathogen as it continues to mutate. Deputy Director Cheever (Laurence Fishburne) tries to allay the growing panic despite his own personal concerns, and must send a brave young doctor (Kate Winslet) into harms way. As the death toll escalates and people struggle to protect themselves and their loved ones in a society breaking down, one activist blogger (Jude Law) claims the public isnt getting the truth about whats really going on, and sets off an epidemic of paranoia and fear as infectious as the virus itself.
My own opinion
Got bored very quickly. Each to their own....give it a whirl. 2 stars
Big actors was used to emphasize this movie, it was okay. The story line is simple to follow.
Without the big actors, i wouldnt have bothered- but its okay
It's all been done before
Virus hits the world and wipes out millions .... No surprises in this movie. Kinda feel it was two hours of my life I'll never get back. I did however watch it to the end in hope something amazing was going to happen but no. Very average.
