terrible movie
30 August 2004 | by nonebutyours4lifeSee all my reviews

this was a terrible movie on just about every level. there was no acceptable story line, no character development and a very weakly based scientific plot. the steps taken to decontaminate all the people in the hospital(room to room and specifically Dr. Landis) and to stop the virus from escaping out of the ventilation system was totally unrealistic. even the handling of the virus was unbelievable. if the virus became airborne, how was that eradicated? the movie failed to formulate a stimulating scientific interest in the viewers. the fact that the vaccine had to be made from a specific strain of ebola that only one person had come into contact with was also fallible from a scientific viewpoint. the insubordination portrayed by General Ryker would never happen in real life and was another poor attempt by Hollywood to make the military look different than it really is. i give this a 2/10 possible stars.
