The best part was the atmosphere and the performances. I like the tension between the actors and I think Scully and Doggett really shine in their team work. The music was a bit overdone especially in the beginning. I like the atmosphere to creep up on me and not knock me over the head with a soundtrack basically telling me how I should feel.
Now on to the glaring plot problems: (1) the two men in the beginning seem like they are there just to throw us off and our questions never really get answered about them (perhaps it was just a thug and a security officer doing their thing which had nothing to do with the parasitic agent), (2) so this thing dies from tap water, electricity and/or alcohol?, (3) where did the young boy come from and why didn't he speak...was he mute?, (4) would someone really risk infecting a population just so the commuters could get home on time from work?
I loved the set up but hated the numerous distractions that amounted to nothing and the ending seemed a bit abrupt for some reason.
