Contagion

Nothing spreads like fear


Contagion
Contagion follows the rapid progress of a lethal airborne virus that kills within days. As the fast-moving epidemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic that spreads faster than the virus itself. At the same time, ordinary people struggle to survive in a society coming apart. Soderbergh is taking a look at a situation some people believe is planned for the near future.

ScreenIt
T. Durgin quote iconThe new pandemic thriller Contagion is a tough one to review. The film is kind of its own worst enemy. There is so much potential in front of and behind the camera, that the paying audience member can't help but expect greatness. This is such a BIG story with the potential for so many BIG moments and BIG scenes, that it's rather perplexing that Soderbergh and Co. made it for the people in the audience with the short attention spans. Instead, the whole thing feels maddeningly incomplete.
