Well, not for me. Its a shame though as great names such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne, Kate Winslett, Jude Law and Elliott Gould have all signed up for it but for me I just did not get it.
Okay, we all were witness to a near global pandemic over the past few years which did result in the sad loss of life however this movie manages to go one step further and bring in the chemists and scientists tasked in producing a vaccine by using terminology lost on most cinema goers and sadly, my interest was dwindling quicker than the Greek Credit Rating.
The individual performances each stand out though. Jude is great as the conspiracy theorist and Laurence Fishburne as the Medical Honcho play blinders. Gwyneth as the 1st infected plays "ill" beautifully even though all of the girls in this have a great excuse no to look their best"
This movie, Blog, No. 153 marks the 2nd Anniversary of my Movie Blog and it appears we are starting its third year with another turkey as I did with the 1st anniversary and Skyline. Its not as bad as that one though to be fair but for me personally, a movie about bird / Swine Flu just made me itch and worry about the guy coughing next to me! Thanks Hollywood, now I'm a damn hypocondriact.
