An action thriller about a virus that strikes a New Mexico county and the local veterinarian who gets caught in the middle. With a quick response time to the infected county after a call is made to the Center Of Disease Control, the presence of the U.S. military has the locals thinking conspiracy theory. The vet must pair up with an eccentric rancher who has ideas of his own of what the government is up to, so they can expose the threat and save humanity.Written by
The DVD cover suggest that the movie will take place in a city, instead of a small town; but hey, it will be a great trivia fact. We all know that this is Jason Connery's first shot at being a director, and for his first project it is entertaining. The only thing I didn't find believable in the movie that the two doctors didn't know each other. In a small town, every one know everyone.
Other than that, I found the characters believable. Ray Wise played his part to perfection! I did find the chase scene a little too long, however it kept my attention. I also thought that there should have been more interaction between the doctor, the vet, and the people from the town. I didn't think the vet carried off the part of being a tough, no nonsense person like she tries. Maybe JC was trying to show just that....she knows what needs to be done, but is afraid of making enemies with the wrong people. After all, she is a young vet and hasn't developed many people skills.
The music in the middle of the movie when the vet is driving through the town was awesome! I thought it went well with the movie and captured the mood effectively.
For a low budget film with a new director, I thought this film was edgy and well made. It got me to think, "Can this really happen in America?" Has this genre been played before? Yes, but who cares! A movie is to be entertaining, and this movie delivered.
