Delon:No one saw it coming. We were all looking out for big things. A nuclear accident, another Chernobyl... As the Russian republic split apart, no one knew who was responsible for what. While they were trying to figure it out, something leaked, something small. It rolled through eastern Europe moving west like a giant wave of death. They called it virulent macrophage.
Title Card:Boston 2007 A.D.
Delon:When the United States saw the potential for the disease on its home shores, it put the recent immigrant population into quarantine camps. My husband Martin was one of those immigrants, so we intured with the rest of the masses. It was only supposed to be for a few months, but by the time Martin was killed our baby was a young boy, and the camp had become his home. There were two worlds, the sick, and the healthy. No one wants in, and no one gets out.

Short and Schweet, 7 June 2010
Author: bodine-1 from Frederick, MD

This senseless and incoherent action/horror flick is one of director Pyun's better movies. Number's short, clocking in at a brisk 77 minutes. Number's got the "Species" babe Henstridge in a role that doesn't require her to shed her clothes, but she STILL looks great. Number three...I like Lambert, no matter how awful the movies he chooses to be in happen to turn out.

As another reviewer stated, Lambert and Henstridge are cops chasing a mutant killer, who is carrying a contagious disease, through what looks like a sewer. That's about it for plot development, although there are some half-baked attempts to fill in Henstridge's character. Pyun is best suited to directing action set pieces and he has lots to work with here. Nice little time waster that's never boring and is over before you know it.
