Storyline

A highly contagious, rapidly killing hemorrhagic mutation of bird flu slaughters people in Hongkong. Preventing its spread is virtually hopeless, as soon is proved in a US country village, which is strictly quarantined by the military. The White House prefers to 'prevent panic', even overrules zealous governor Mike Newsome and reneges earlier emergency plans. Written by KGF Vissers

realistic representation
3 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bird flu in America was relatively accurate according to the local conference on emergency management I went to this year. The thing we need to watch for is the first human to human transmission and then all bets are off. The synthesizing of vaccines is right on. Would take months after the flu was identified. Masks are used to keep things in, not to keep things out, so they are relatively useless. Most cases will be caught by touching things infected people have touched and then spreading it to your orifices and open cuts. I never touch my eyes or anything that goes in my mouth without first washing my hands and I have avoided several common flu's out this year. Money is the absolute worst thing to handle. The movie itself, like I said, was relatively accurate. The acting was good and the special effects were good too. For a low budget movie, it was well worth the watch if you want an intro to how a bad pandemic would operate.
