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...

Okay...
8 March 2002 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

The title of the movie "WW3" is completely misleading. No war occurs. A movie named "WW3" should be about nuclear apocalypse, or in this case, biological apocalypse.

However, this movie does, in its overly-exaggerated manner, somewhat get its point across. For example, the thought of biological warfare did become a small part of my mind after this.

This movie's producers probably never dreamed that the message at the end ("Scientists feel that it is not a question of if such an attack will occur, but when...") would turn out to be true. Two months after the broadcast of the movie, the September 11 terrorist attacks occurred. A month later, lo and behold, there was a bioterrorist attack on the United States with anthrax. (It was not nearly as bad as the one in the movie.)

Overall, worth watching, if you have the time...once.
