Your average winter cold follows a less predictable course.

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.

Frankly, about 20 minutes into this dud, I was rooting for the alien beasties.

An unpretentious, amusing thrill-a-minute sci-fi horror thriller / monster movie that plugs right into fears of a Y2K crisis.

Completely predictable and largely fright-free!

The monsters themselves are quite a bit less than frightening, most of them being little mechanical gadgets with spidery legs and not much resistance to machine-gun fire.

The dialogue tends toward the obvious, and the characters are constantly explaining what is happening to one another.

As long on adrenaline and special effects as it is short on genuine novelty and intellectual content.

There isn't much about Virus that you won't know by guessing.

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