Antiviral Reviews

David Baldwin
We Got This Covered

Antiviral is an interesting idea for a social satire, but the plot, story, and acting are all weak, and the film owes way too much to David Cronenberg.

While Brandon Cronenberg surely lives up to the family name, I can't prescribe Antiviral to anyone needing an exciting sci-fi fix.

What Jones hasn't been given is a character to play. Syd is a cipher, neither sympathetic nor hateful, nor even interestingly human.

Brandon's cunning plan to step out of his father's shadow is basically to plagiarise every movie he's ever made.

A one-joke movie--a good joke, yes, but Brandon Cronenberg's agenda clouds the clarity that's needed to fully deliver the punchline.

As a piss-take of society's shallow fascination with Kardashian-like nobodies, Antiviral is coolly effective, but there's little insight into the psychology that drives normal people to fixate on such 'celebrities'.

As pretentious as it is boring.

"Antiviral" is interesting for the first ten or fifteen minutes before it digresses into a slough. Boredom is the death of any movie, and this one will bore you to tears.

Queasiness abound but there are no real jolts; the words "foreskin", "anus" and "vulva" are unlikely to disturb anyone under the age of 97.

The younger Cronenberg has made a derivative exercise in body horror that plays as little more than low rent Cronenberg pastiche.

'Antiviral' never wholly succeeds as either a surgical satire or a medical conspiracy thriller, and its tedious last third is like a diseased body dragging itself slowly to the grave.

If David Cronenberg's entire body of work didn't exist, Antiviral would be a revelation. As it stands...

If weirdness was all that mattered, Antiviral would be a must-see.

Screen International

Brandon Cronenberg's feature debut is a cybermedical sci-fi vampire thriller that battles constantly, and with only limited success, against its own ludicrous script.

A virtual panoply of high wooziness, replete with sweating, shakes, vomiting, rot-infected food and more needles piercing skin than rush hour at a free flu clinic.

Eventually the clammy spell of this handsomely designed but solemnly paced movie begins to wear off, and you long for a little action or at least some fresh air.

Syd's would-be rebellion from this sick world is rendered toothless, largely because Cronenberg spends most of his film discussing how cool and complex the rules are, and how to break them.

If Cronenberg's not yet a dead ringer for his iconic dad, he's taken an intriguing first step.

...a ridiculous and flat-out dumb premise that's employed to terminally underwhelming effect by Cronenberg...

The whole movie feels like a case of the sweats, putting you in desperate need of the chicken soup of recognizable human behavior.
