Contagion follows the rapid progress of a lethal airborne virus that kills within days. As the fast-moving epidemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic that spreads faster than the virus itself. At the same time, ordinary people struggle to survive in a society coming apart.

WARNING!.... IF YOU THINK THIS IS GOING TO BE AN ACTION PACKED THRILLER WITH SCIENTIST'S RUNNING AROUND AFTER A CURE DON'T BOTHER!
But on the other hand if you want a slow burn realistic thriller that explores the real science of a global virus then this is worth a look. The thing about Contagion is that it's all filmed and acted in a un-flashy matter of fact fashion, this makes the viewing experience very realistic and chilling.
We all know how quick swine flu spread in the summer of 2009, one week it's a virus over in Mexico a week later I'm laid in bed thinking my head is going to explode and contemplating writing out my will! This movie has an all star cast as they all get involved in the biological disaster eather getting infected of trying to find a anti-virus, but with such a star studeed cast some of the characters get pushed to the side lines. This does not make the movie any less chilling as it delivers the facts in gripping fashion. The scenes that hit home are the ones at the start of the film where the virus is spread by touch via glass, door handle and so on, not to mention the fact of how much we touch our face a day, the film plays on the paranoia to great effect. In the cinema I could not resist to start to fake cough half way through just to see the reaction of the audience (because I'm a bit sick that way!). It is a very smart movie, but feels like it has been cut from a much longer film to fall into the two hour bracket, but never the less love it or hate it, it will still leave you much to think about after the end credits have rolled.

director steven soderbergh tick, good ensemble cast tick, virus that kills en masse tick. should be brilliant but it isnt. so much of this film is scarily believable yet i feel soderbergh missed an oppertunity to really scare us. a vius is out there intent on wiping out mankind and scientists race to find a way of halting it. most of cast do a decent turn and although not a bad film it could have been better.

Although its not a bad film, it's not great either, I found it quite flat and unexhilerating, it does jump in straight from the begining but I feel it needed more umpfff, although saying this it does bring a real chill about it and makes you think.. Because this film is a possible reality. I'd say rent it, don't buy it, as you will prob only watch it once, but nether the less.. Watch it!

Good cast even a good story line and the first twenty minutes or so kept you watching ,but then if you want to watch a totaly boring film with no sympathy for any of the characters then carry on watching,i gave up in the middle but carried on in the hope something might happen but alas nothing did though the ending was decent enough
