Is it excusable to kill a few indigents here and there experimenting for a miracle cure? Measures' painfully protracted Hour 2 turns into a melodramatic debate about ethics.

It's a fish out of water story in which neither the fish nor anybody else seems aware of his 'out of water' status.

If it's never as scary or provocative as it means to be, at least it's straightforward and satisfying.
