Goofs

The establishing shot for "Taipei, Taiwan" actually shows (now closed) Kai Tak Airport in Hong Kong, clearly recognizable by the runway configuration and the numerous buildings surrounding the airport and the end of the runway. See more »

User Reviews

plot-by-numbers, routine thriller which doesn't thrill

This made for TV movie suffers in comparison to the tense and exciting 'Outbreak'. You can join the dots yourself as the story unfolds and it becomes a matter of waiting for the cast to jump through the hoops. There are no surprises. But there is Brendan Fletcher, who makes a silk purse from the sow's ear of a script. He is always worth watching.
