Haruki Kadokawa was the heir to a major publishing empire. He entered the film business in the mid 1970s with some high-profile features. This was to be his big breakthrough in the international market. He tried to ensure its success by casting some U.S. stars and doing major international promotion (under the international title "Virus"). However, the film was a major flop. Although it may have had some special showings in the U.S., it did not receive a general release. It was sold directly to pay television in an edited one hundred eight-minute version. See more »
The chamber where the ARS is located is reached by Yoshizumi and Carter simply blowing two doors open with plastique and climbing down an elevator shaft. A chamber containing a doomsday device probably contains more elaborate security features, such as blast doors. See more »

As of 2006, the full 155-minute version of this film is officially available on DVD in the United States. BCI Eclipse released the full Japanese version in anamorphic widescreen as part of their Sonny Chiba Action Pack, which also includes the films Golgo 13 and Bullet Train (which are also featured in anamorphic widescreen transfers). This release keeps an original Japanese title card and the Kadokawa logo before the film begins, which is something that the deluxe Japanese DVD set deletes (albeit, it is an inconsequential deletion). The BCI Eclipse release is not the butchered 108-minute cut. It is labeled on the box as the "Uncut International Version". See more »
Forget Contagion, this one is a must watch during the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic.
Finally I am watching the 156 mins version for the first time.
Read some amazing reviews by prolific reviewers like Leofwine_draca n Coventry.
I cant wait to state that this movie is a solid take on the virus n apocalypse genre.
Upto now I am into 37 mins n this film is so intriguing n engrossing man.
My review aft completion of the film.
This film has some amazing lines :
History can tell you that the rational mind is not always a prerequisite for a position of power.
Those who cannot remember the past r condemned to repeat it.
This time try to work it out together.
U r a fool, general. There's nobody left.
The scene at 45th min is so distressing.
The film has an amazing ensemble cast. Watch out for Henry Silva as the psycho general.
The end is a lil far fetched n that is the reason it's not a 10 from me.
