Very derivative low budget government and contagion paranoia
16 December 2015 | by sideriteSee all my reviews

The problem with the film is that it has been done before, and much better. I am a fan of contagion themes - real ones, not zombies or some other crap like that - but I found this boring as hell. People talk a lot, overreact, reach stupid conclusions and then just fail right before implementing a good idea.

The only thing they got right is how incompetent "the authorities" would be in a case like that, but even that has been done to death, especially in British productions.

Bottom line: you know this film has failed when I suddenly found myself hoping the infected would act like zombies.
