Your eyes will bleed.
4 February 2010 | by mithluinSee all my reviews

I concur; this is without a doubt one of the worst movies ever made. Do not watch it. It seemed *much* longer that it was, was quite tedious and overall just a horrible movie. Gaping plot holes, bad acting, you name it. It made me seriously lose confidence in the judgment of the people who picked it out to watch. I don't know if it was a budget issue or a script issue or what, but the final product is *terrible*.

I would give you a summary of the plot, but I don't think this movie is worth it. The plot is not coherent enough to deserve a summary. The premise is that a deadly virus is on the loose and is going to kill a bunch of people if the heroes fail to save the day. But really, the only people who are going to bleed from the eyes are the ones who watch this movie.

If the plot interests you at all, watch "Outbreak" instead.
