"Contagion" by Steven Soderbergh and written by Scott Burns, Z (IT) managed to show us how fast a virus spread. It also makes you believe that agoraphobia is a bad idea.
Beth Emhoff (Gwyneth Paltrow) returns to Minneapolis for a business trip to Hong Kong. Two days later she was dead at the hospital and the doctors tell him, shocked and grieving man (Matt Damon), they have no idea why.
Soon other people are going to the same mysterious symptoms: fever, dry cough, with seizures, intracranial hemorrhage (ouch) and finally ... Death. Not a good way to go.
This nasty virus quickly spreads ... Chicago, London, Paris, Tokyo, Hong Kong, China, and Los Angeles. The number of cases is increasing rapidly ... one case four, then six, then hundreds, thousands and possibly millions.
A global pandemic explodes. Well, sounds exciting, right? Not so much.
It does not take long to get bogged down "contamination" in the scientific mumbo jumbo, government conspiracy cheated ... with Jewish law bloggers, and history compulsory Matt Damon B, that his dead wife in anger against him and his daughter that she did not lock lips with a dorky friend.
I love movies and I was expected pandemic really love it. Unfortunately, I found my mind wandering ... Kate Winslet is an excellent reflection on the "American" accent. Miss Winslet plays Dr. Erin Mears, a CDC staff in the field by his colleague Dr. Cheever (Laurence Fishburne) is sent to try to stop the spread of the virus. You talk about what is happening.
The rest of the cast, including Marion Cotillard (Dr. Orantes Leonora) has not really given much to do ... except for the worried look and then look very, very concerned, because the number of deaths.
