Quite hard to sit though
21 March 2018 | by HK_Key-Si_HKSee all my reviews

If you are looking for another virus movie, people bleeding out of eyes and ears, helpless people mutating in any kind of sort, etc... Containment won't be for you. This movie scratches more the idea of people waking up, their flats are sealed and what should have been starting as an ordinary day turned into an emotional ride, as soon as they see the "officials" outside walking around in high level security suits. Willing to shoot everybody who attempts to escape. The problem of this movie now is that the writing is pretty bad. The sequences seem allover the place and a real plot is nowhere to be found. On top of that comes the low budget production which may give Containment a little bit of a realistic look, but for audiences it is quite hard to sit though. The reasons why this movie does not completely fail are Lee Ross and Sheila Reid who acted quite well with what they have been given. Especially Sheila Reid reminded me so much of Gladys (Eileen Ryan) in Eight Legged Freaks (aka Arac Attack) and she was given some very beautiful moments of screen time. The other characters are very stereotypical and this movie is placing itself closer to Quarantine 2 on the movie shelf than... let's say: Outbreak.
