Nothing alike
31 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

Granted this movie bears a few resemblances to Outbreak, namely that they are both about viruses, but one, "Virus" is about Ebola, a REAL virus for which there is no cure, while "Outbreak" is about a fictional virus. Two, "Virus" is about a virus intentionally spread by humans, while "Outbreak" is about a virus spread by a monkey. THREE, "Virus" is based on a book titled "Outbreak", written by the great Robin Cook. Four,"Virus" is centered on the CDC, while "Outbreak" the virus is dealt with by USAMRIID(the military). Personally, I think "Virus" would have made a better movie on the big screen, as I enjoyed it more than the motion picture "Outbreak".
