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...

Oh my God...
20 September 2003 | by (Trinidad) – See all my reviews

Was in the middle of watching this (under the title "Winds Of Terror") on video, when I started to get a sinking feeling... This wasn't made BEFORE 9/11 was it? Came here and so it was. All I can say is...

Oh. My. God.

All the FBI and CIA had to do was watch this. They even name Bin Laden and Al Qaeda. So, sorry, the excuse of "nobody could have seen it coming" won't wash any more.

BTW - this movie is also heavily influenced by Richard Preston's "Hot Zone"

  • even to the point of borrowing whole chunks of text and dialog. Preston


was the guy who woke up the Clinton Administration to the bioweapon threat.

Conclusion - you don't need to see this movie. You already saw it on 9/11 and the Anthrax attacks after. Let's hope there isn't a sequel in the works...
