Flawed drama thriller
4 August 2015 | by Joseph_HalseySee all my reviews

In Containment, the protagonist finds his apartment door epoxied shut, and unable to communicate by phone; and the plot develops from there.

The movie was described as a horror sci-fi thriller, but that is only one-third correct. There was nothing sci-fi about it, and it is not a horror movie.

My main complaints are two. One is that there were a lot (like twenty or thirty) long-duration shots that accomplished precisely nothing, as if the director was desperately trying to add to the length of the movie. The other problem was the movie's ending, which was quite abrupt, leaving things unresolved and incompletely explained.
