Interesting analysis., 15 April 2008
Author: Michael DeZubiria ( from Luoyang, China

The full first half of this supplemental documentary concentrates on what almost comes off as a conspiracy theory about the likelihood of a biological weapon being launched somewhere in the world, causing an epidemic of disease that wipes out a frightening number of the people on earth, similar to what happens in the movie. It's up for debate about how justified that concern is, because people have been talking about how we're on the verge of nuclear war for decades, and now it appears that, despite all of the terrorism in the world, the likelihood of sovereign nations knowingly destroying each other gets less every year.

Or maybe I'm just not tuned in to the level of hatred that is taking place in the world today. More interesting is the second half, which talks a lot about the production of the movie, how they did the make-up for the infected victims and how they emptied the streets of London for those opening shots, as well as plenty of commentary about what the people involved thought about the subject matter.

For me, the only drawback seems to be that the discussions of past pandemics and the possibility of future pandemics are conducted with such inevitable conviction that it makes them come off as just a little bit hysterical. Yeah, the danger is there, but the danger of something is always there. In modern times, it just seems to me that mankind is more likely to reach a higher level of peace if we all stop trying to predict pandemics and wars and terrorist attacks and start trying to live in peace with our neighbors. I don't see a lot of that effort going on these days…
