I finally got the chance to watch CONTAGION last night. The movie has a pretty big cast…Jude Law, Lawrence Fishburne, Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow…just to name a few. I really thought with all this star power…it would’ve been an awesome movie…but for me…it was just OK. CONTAGION is about a virus…a really crazy ‘you don’t ever wanna get’ virus…a lady (Paltrow) catches the virus from Hong Kong…brings it to the states…and all hell breaks loose. It’s a simple story of how a virus spreads everywhere – how the government deals with the situation – how people act in total chaos. Even though the movie was OK for me – - makes ya think…this could really happen.
I give CONTAGION… 2 1/2 out of 5 POPCORNS!
