Storyline

In the not so distant future, biochemical technology has advanced in unexpected ways. Unfortunately, it has fallen into the hands of the wrong man, a brilliant young biochemist by the name of Jacob, who believes the world is a better place without humanity. Jacob decides to take matters into his own hands by beginning the process to wipe everyone out. Staging biochemical attacks through out the city, the virus is released, infecting millions in a matter of seconds, causing chaos and destruction everywhere. Cee is at her sister's wedding when the virus hits, infecting everyone and killing dozens of her loved ones. Fighting to survive as long as she can, she meets a mysterious man by the name of Caleb, an employee of the world's largest biochemical engineering company, who reveals the origin of the virus. An attack separates Cee from Caleb and she is picked up by people intent on stopping the virus. Written by Jorge A. Nunez

Great premise, but a failure everywhere else
3 September 2018 | by hfelsh-46-730639See all my reviews

This movie had the potential to be good. The plot is decent. Hell, the storyline is pretty good, albeit lacking in places in this movie, where it could and should have been fleshed out. It would have been better as a 2-part movie, where more of the backstory could have been filled in. As it is, there is literally zero character development, and the "plot", as it is in ths movie, falls flat due to inadequate storytelling.

The acting is horrible. Stilted, jerky, almost looking like a college-level drama class entry using actual college drama students as the so-called "actors". Completely not believeable in any sense of the word.

This movie needed a larger budget, and better actors. And better story writers. Not to mention decent extras, and a dirctor who knows what he or she is doing.

Failing that, I gave this movie 2 stars because of the premise. I suffered through 92 minutes of bad acting, bad story telling, bad directing, and an overall let-down at the conclusion.

Don't watch this movie. Seriously. Don't bother.
