Nice viewing, if not the world's best movie
22 December 2004 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This movie was nice to view, I enjoyed it. Perhaps because the issue of spreading of dangerous viruses is something which fascinates me.

Not the world's best movie, certainly, but OK instead of that.

Something which often happens in Hollywood products is that the scientific and technical details are incorrect. In this movie, this mainly occurred in that the incubation time for the virus described was unreasonably short. People got infected and died within a day or so, when this was suitable for the story. Some viruses may have such a short incubation time, but not an influenza virus.

The people in the movie were also sometimes too frantic and irritated at each other, compared to my experience of medical professionals of this kind.
