The "Andromeda Strain" is a deadly extraterrestrial virus. It is brought to Earth when a research satellite crashes near a tiny Arizona town. Everyone in the community dies within days, except for a baby and an "insulated" drunkard. Recruited from labs all over North America, doctors Charles Dutton (David Wayne), Jeremy Stone (Arthur Hill), Ruth Leavitt (Kate Reid), and Mark Hall (James Olson) don radiation suits and race against time to isolate and destroy the virus.

Nelson Gidding's adaptation of the Michael Crichton novel is too literal and talky.
Splendid entertainment that will get you worried about whether they'll be able to contain that strange blob of alien green crystal.
Robert Wise's version of Chrihton's popular novel is a decent (but no more) film, with some good art design.
Uma ficção-científica inteligente, para adultos, que usa a "ficção" como trampolim para sua fascinante "ciência". E a direção de arte é um espetáculo à parte, mesmo que datada.
An intriguing, suspenseful story is somewhat hampered by a dull cast. The last sequence will have you on the edge of your seat.
Wise (and Crichton) concoct the most absorbing, riveting take on science fiction tempered with science fact.
Director Wise takes few liberties with Michael Crichton's breakthrough best-seller and the film is all the stronger for it.
Wise and screenwriter Nelson Gidding focus on the details and the science of the story, giving it a natural suspense that nearly holds up for the entire 131 minutes.
