Not bad/not good
2 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It was a bit contrived but still not bad for a TV movie. These types of "canned script" movies usually drive me nuts -- too many characters making amazingly stupid decisions, at least one totally heartless idiot, at least two heart-wrenching side stories, one person you really know "must die", and of course technology failing just when it is most needed. And this movie definitely has it's fair share of all the above, but there was just barely enough "reality" to make it nominally believable. It's certainly entertaining enough to be a Saturday-popcorn-movie but I'm glad I didn't pay money to see it.

This movie is worth watching for no other reason than to see Martin Sheen playing a right-wing conservative wacko. And a mean-hearted, evil one to boot. Lindsay Wagner actually did pretty good portraying an infectious disease research doctor caught in the middle of a public crisis. And just like pretty much all TV movies, it has a satisfying ending -- the good guys win and the bad guys lose.
