Incredibly bad research work
5 October 2009 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

This movie is about a presumed virus outbreak during a flight from south Asia to Munich. Most of all, the scientific premise is utterly wrong. Retroviruses is shown as multiplying in erythrocytes, which lack a) DNA (necessary for retrovirus replication) and b) the enzymatic apparatus for multiplying any viral nucleic acids.

Some other basics are mentioned at some time in act 1, but completely ignored later on. Most of all, the virus being transported via air conditioning.

Lots of small glitches, incredible acting, improbable dialogs and reactions of characters.

After all, it does have some suspense, otherwise I would have rated it "1".
