"This is very stoopeed, Stevie." I must have repeated that line to myself a dozen times before this abysmal techno-thriller shuddered to a much-appreciated end.
| Original Score: 1/5
The conclusion is so rushed it almost functions as parody. But the biggest impression the movie leaves is that William "Kangaroo Head" Baldwin makes lots of unintentionally goofy faces.
The next worse thing to getting a virus is to catch this bacteria friendly film.
| Original Score: C
Virus makes another loud and colourful case for the special-effects epidemic.
Your average winter cold follows a less predictable course.
| Original Score: C-
Until the diverting special effects take center stage, this story, about an alien intelligence that builds an army out of flesh and metal, pathetically exploits genre conventions without generating self-reference, camp, or thrills.
A derivative sci-fi shocker that isn't likely to spark much interest beyond its target audience of undemanding genre fans.
While he can fling together a competent action or special effects sequence, his handling of the plot and actors is strictly routine.
a respectable little thriller that packs a couple of genuine jolts and gallon upon gallon of gore into a goofy, sometimes suspenseful yarn.
No one in the right mind would call this a good film, or even a decent one, but thankfully, rookie feature director John Bruno's romp is not a complete waste of celluloid.
Frankly, about 20 minutes into this dud, I was rooting for the alien beasties.
| Original Score: 1/4
Even Donald Sutherland in the potentially juicy role as a self-serving old sea dog, is wasted in this big budget ill.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Monster movie is a monstrous failure.
When the automated robotic lab starts using dead bodies as biological material to create killing machines programmed to believe man is harmful and must be destroyed.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
bathed in an incessant gloom that makes it look like one of the comic book artists who inspired this sci-fi/horror hybrid spilled his ink blotter on the film's negatives
| Original Score: 1.5/4
An unpretentious, amusing thrill-a-minute sci-fi horror thriller / monster movie that plugs right into fears of a Y2K crisis.
| Original Score: 3/5
| Original Score: 7/10
Completely predictable and largely fright-free!
There isn't much about Virus that you won't know by guessing.
It's rare to find a movie that makes this little sense.
