Panic Away from this Movie....!
21 August 2011 | by (Bangalore, India) – See all my reviews

Yawn! This is one viral attack that induces more boredom & headache than panic! Forget panic, I found it difficult to hold my attention as many scenes left me with nausea as too many people are shown either throwing up dark blood or puking. Was that really necessary? I'd to close my eyes at times and only listen to the dialogues.

The bright side? The acting. Grant Bowler as chief medical officer Jim, Vince Colosimo as Col. Hirsch, Zoe Crammond as Ari and Jessica Tovey as Jim's daughter are some of them especially who were serious & sincere in their performances.

As mentioned earlier, the movie could have toned down on all those graphic display of victims reacting to the virus infection. Also many scenes were shot so dull. At times, I felt as though something's dangerously exciting is gonna happen but most times, it looked like a documentary to me. Rather than remembering the characters or their valor in fighting the virus, all I can recall is all that vomit :(

More fast-paced scenes could have brought more fortune & appreciation for this movie.

Verdict: Sorry, stay safe. Quarantine yourself from this one...
