Storyline

Small rocks fall from the sky which, when touched, trigger a latent virus that has always existed in humans and begins mutating them into an alien species. Taking advantage of its hive mentality, the aliens are absolutely dedicated to transforming every human on Earth and do so with alarming swiftness. Only a small group of humans remain who have the medical knowledge to devise antibodies to reverse the effects of the virus. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

Bad Screenplay-not like the book at all.
3 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While the movie itself was not terrible. However, the movie did not follow the movie closely enough. It disregarded all the scientific basis of the cure that was in the book, they used another virus to drive the virus into the lytic cycle which released it from the host and allowed it to be killed by oxygen. By not following the book, the movie became unrealistic and just a scifi movie, which the book was a little scifi but with mostly scientific reasoning. The movie ruined the original idea of the book. If I was Robin Cook, i would be very disappointed with the movie and the poorly written screenplay. The movie forgot to mention the love triangle of beau, cassy, and Pitt as well. The screenplay was way to different from the book. The acting was pretty good though.
