Old story badly redone
14 October 2003 | by themarina1See all my reviews

Where to start. This is bad from beginning to end. Not only has the story been done to death (deadly virus spreading to kill humanity. What should the USA do to save the planet?) but this version added nothing to the pile. Bad acting adds to the sadness. The only reason I gave this a 2 was because of Daniel Bernhardt, the handsome bad guy. If only we'd seen more of him...Actually, some parts of this movie also reminded me of bad Steven Seagal movies (like any of them are any good) with out Steven Seagal. Don't bother to see this. Not worth the time.

2/10
