Storyline

In 1986, David Whitman came home, contaminated his wife and child, and watched them die. Years later, he leads a hazmat team investigating an industrial accident near Budapest. One contaminated man escaped. Terrorist expert Holly Anderson is part of a unit which operates on the premise that the contaminated man is a terrorist murdering his victims. Whitman, on the other hand, believes the contaminated man to be an innocent victim. Either way, the contaminated man must be found, because after he touches people, they live only a few minutes.

Doesn't anyone pay attention?
12 January 2003 | by jbartell-1See all my reviews

For God's sake people, let's try to get it right. The Weller character isn't carrying a virus or a pathogen or anything else biological and the Hurt character isn't a disease expert. Hurt plays a hazardous waste clean-up guy for the UN. Weller gets a dose of pesticide in the face that metabolizes into a chemical that causes instant fatal allergic reaction to anyone he touches.

This may seem like a trivial difference but at least it's a new idea, not just a recycling on any number of other movies, dating back at least to the Satan Bug in 1965 if not earlier. I'll pass up judging the rest of the film as everyone else has, but you've got to wonder about the validity of anyone's attention who apparently didn't pay any attention to the freakin' movie.
