An Odd One
17 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

Even though the title suggests different, this really isn't a horror or science fiction movie, more like a social policy debate movie. It starts off about a research scientist who accidently flushes some bad microbes down a sink. It's not like in OUTBREAK, where a terrible disease takes the city hostage, just people talking and screaming at one another about the possibility of an outbreak. Stephen Collins turns in a wacky performance as a scientist's husband who likes to jump around and accuse people of playing God. I kinda liked its low-key thoughtfulness, but nothing really goes on.
