The Russian government has collapsed. Amidst the chaos, riots, and struggle for power, a terrible weapon has leaked out. Virulent microflage, a deadly germ of the cold war has begun to spread across Eastern Europe, killing massive numbers of people. Now, in a quarantine camp set up for immigrants in 2017 Boston, one vicious murderer has the disease. Within two hours he will become violently contagious, and it is up to a team of officers in a race against time to track him down and stop him... if he doesn't kill them first.Written by
Several versions of the film are in distribution. The official US version is 76 minutes long. There is a European/UK (Polygram) version that is 102 minutes long. Director/writer Albert Pyun has said in interviews he intends to restore and release a 110 minutes Director's Cut restoration of the film. This version is set entirely in Romania and has only a minor virus aspect in its plot. See more »
No one saw it coming. We were all looking out for big things. A nuclear accident, another Chernobyl... As the Russian republic split apart, no one knew who was responsible for what.

German Video-Version (ratio 4:3) runs much longer than the US-Release (R-Rated) but is finally not uncut. German TV-Version ist also cut but does not contain the same cuts like the Video-Release. The full uncut version was running on Pay-TV in it's original ratio 1:2.35 See more »
It would be unfair to comment that Adrenalin is boring at all. Although it was a low budget Pyun film, it has its moments. Although I watched the movie on TV, I still got some excitement. Not bad as a B grade thriller for mediocre audience like me! One thing I am still confused about, in the beginning of the movie it reads "Romania, western Europe", but the movie trailer says it is Boston.
Another plot hole of the film, to me, is if the guy who was infected by a virus something like rabies, seems to be sane and very intelligent. How could he be so clever and retain his mental composure? He was supposed to be delirious or in coma instead. I don't think the writer cared about this details.
3 out of 10, for the sake of the face value of Lambert, my icon.
