The last shot is an homage to The African Queen, a movie I earnestly recommend instead of this one.

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.

Even Donald Sutherland in the potentially juicy role of a self-serving old sea dog goes down with the ship in this suspenseless big-budget 'thriller.'

A poorly conceived thriller that sidesteps everything that really would be interesting about an Ebola outbreak in favor of an overused plot.

How many cliches can one film incorporate or steal from other movies?

It's so unmemorable that I couldn't recall what movie I had seen while the credits were rolling.

The conventions of the genre are well-established, and Virus uninspiredly copies them all.

Why tell a tale -- especially so unimaginatively -- which has been told so many times?

"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.

A disgusting, ugly, and downright depressing excuse for a thriller, and that's what makes it good.

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.
