This might have been an interesting movie. The storyline of a pandemic spreading like wildfire may be a cliché, but when done well, could have been decent. Unfortunately, I saw this movie and simply had to laugh at things that were not taken care of anywhere near a "real world" scenario. For instance, if you were trying to keep 6 million people in one place, you'd use more than a single wooden 2x4 painted barricade across the road.
An interesting premise, but that's all it is - a premise that went into production as a "movie" without any further thought.
The B-list-at-best cast certainly doesn't help.
I grade it as 3/10 for being bad enough to be laughable, but not make me throw things at the screen.
