When Tucker and his group of friends chase Carol and Oliver down the alley, they clearly show frustration (a form of anger, which is an emotion) once they cannot find the two. Yet, Tucker and his friends have already been infected with the alien virus, to show no emotion. See more »

All other version of this movie are superior. Even the '93 version which was garbage as well... NO suspense.No explanation. Blue filter lighting. Plodding pace. Good actors in a flaccid script. Space shuttle brought back a virus. (not a spoiler because this is revealed in the trailer and occurs in the first 2 minutes of the movie)
What made all the other versions interesting was the interpretative possibilities. Comparisons to communism, hippies, Aids etc...
This one is bland. Doesn't comment on anything. A complete waste...
The director of a decent movie Das Experiment goes on autopilot for the money. Editing is nonsense and the script is but a connect the dots children's narrative.
Best viewed at double speed while doing something meaningful, if at all!
