This film is about a mysterious, incurable and deadly infection that spreads throughout Japan alarmingly quickly.
"Pandemic" is a refreshing surprise. Though it contains some gory scenes, it does not rely on shock tactics to scare. Scenes of chaos, anarchy and people begging for help are enough to make people feel uneasy and to maintain suspense. Apart from some technical details (such as entering an infection zone without even a surgical mask), the medical scenes are believable.
"Pandemic" raises the issue that people, and even countries, are not equipped with epidemics like this. With new viruses being discovered every now and then, it is scary to think that the events in "Pandemic" could actually happen.
