Storyline

Larry Sullivan is a white collar FBI agent, but when a mysterious virus strikes on board a cruise ship he's send to his uncle John, a recluse who shoots at strangers, but one of the last surviving experts from the 1960s programs to develop biological weapons. He and his Russian-born old friend Yuri Zenkovsky confirm it's a variant of the extremely contagious and deadly Marburg virus, which was made as contagious as influenza in order to wipe out most of a continent's population if spread from four strategical points, and soon it is at three; the North American dead-count rises exponentially...

So close yet so far.
16 August 2001 | by (Bay area, California) – See all my reviews

This movie started out fairly interesting, even for a made-for-TV movie. Even though it ripped off things from "The Stand" and "Saving Private Ryan" I thought it was rather well made. And then, suddenly, after almost no noticable climax, it ended. To say the least I was shocked. I half expected a "to be continued" or some kind of epilogue. Nothing. The story dropped off into a void of nothingness, leaving me totally unsatisfied. Also, the title is completely misleading. There was never any "war" onscreen, only terrorist attacks and a quick mention of war in Kuait at the end. It would have been great as the first installment in a miniseries but unfortunatly, the creators saw differently.
