Goofs

After Rosie dies, Amy tears off her face mask and cries into her still-gloved hands. In reality, if she had done that without going through a through chemical cleansing shower first Amy would have been infected as well. See more »

Can't say enough to describe how bad....
3 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

I'm not one to expect too much out of Canadian TV, but this was the worst of the worst. Never mind being factually inaccurate in almost every way (medically and how things actually went) the acting was horrendous! If you're going to do a docu-drama then you have to use the real hospital names. Toronto Memorial?? And if you're going to be having actors portraying doctors and nurses doing medical procedures maybe they should have gotten some technical feedback so they didn't look like a total joke. The script was sappy and cheesy. Anyone that worked in the medical field during SARS, especially in the emergency area, got a good laugh out of the movie. If you want to watch a cheesy medical (sort of) badly done 'horror' flick - then watch it. Otherwise it's just plain offensive.
