OK TVM from LIFETIME except for silly ending
17 June 2006 | by (Morongo Valley, California) – See all my reviews

Nothing else to watch Saturday June 17, 2006; I'll try this one about a spreading virus; they are usually good. That is not a spoiler, after all, the title is "VIRUS."

The screenplay was OK as it progressed until the last reel. Then ... and I will not give any spoiler at all; it just became sort of ... 'cartoon-a-rooney!

This is the first bad review that I have given. The ending was so obvious and expected, as it rolled to the conclusion; I was telling my dog what was coming next, but I think he already had guessed.

I wish LIFETIME would make movies in Hollywood, where the talent is. Oh well.
