Somewhere behind the Iron Curtain, a replica of an American town has been created. Operatives are being trained in various jobs, all of which would bring them into contact with many people in a short amount of time. What the operatives don't know is they will be infected with a plague, which they will spread. The IMF infiltrates the training facility. Its mission is to bring down the man who has organized the plot. Written by Bill Koenig

Cold Blooded
22 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In response to the "plot hole" pointed out by cwaters; I think the ending is supposed to imply that leader will become sick and die, which doesn't seem to bother the IMF at all. What's really brutal about that is that almost certainly some of his unwitting followers will die as well. Hell, the whole country might get wiped out. As far as them getting infected and then coming to the U.S., I think we're supposed to believe that once it's been spread and the symptoms become apparent, there won't be time to get them on a plane. Remember, they didn't sign up to be carriers. So once they feel sick and start keeling over, they're probably gonna be pretty upset.
