Saw the movie Contagion this evening. Not bad, not bad. Steven Soderbergh knows how to put a movie together and certainly makes a wide variety of them. He hasn't really done that one masterpiece IMO, but he has done a good chunk of solid stuff. 7 out of 10. UPON REVIEW - yep, it's good. I think I'm even going to raise the rating by a fraction. It's intelligent - and also effectively sweet at times. 7.2 out of 10

Horrible Movie. They make it look like the wonderful U.Sof A is the only country able to find a cure. Worse they make the Chinease look like thugs

Yes, this is a scary movie, precisely because it could so easily become more than just a movie! And the CDC has just been underfunded!

Not as good as Outbreak, but almost on the same level. Pretty good.

Compadent medical thriller helped along by a strong cast, it fails to fully involve the viewer in its disjointed plot and lacks the impact its subject matter deserves.

Quite Afew Stories At Once Sometimes Overwhelm The Senses. The Music In Some Sections Is Just Perfectly Done, Great Score-Soundtrack Adds To The Sense Of Doom, Accentuates The Errie, Unease. While In Others, IE: The End...It's Just Plain Lame. It Has Some Schmotzie Moments But Overall It's Pretty Good.

This film is a long and winded way to remind people to wash their hands after handling raw meat ...

Contagion was quite boring with an uninspired storyline, the whole plot of the movie is a killer flu hurting society. Rise of Planet of the Apes was way more fun than this, at least Rise of Planet of Apes didn't have hive-minded characters spewing out dialogue with empty meaning and spending the whole movie panicking and fighting off a virus.

Looks interesting to me.

I love this movie and watch it probably once a year to remind myself how important it is to wash your hands well! Hahaha. I love the take on what a massive epidemic would look like our over-urbanized global society. Yes it's a bit over draumatized but not enough to be ridiculous, and the realistic take is what makes the movie scary. I recommend everyone to at least watch it once to get a mere sense of how our world is connected and what the intertwining of politics and health looks like.

The minor subplot involving some of the family members may feel a little forced at times, but the performances are very good and the story has a great message that emphasizes the importance of vaccines. People, please vaccinate your children, and for the last time, it is scientifically impossible for vaccines to even cause autism!

This was alarming, to say the least. I am a bit of a germaphobe and a stickler for cleanliness, so this film just made my beliefs all the more firm and put my fears into overdrive. I think movies like this show us the different perspectives from how a virus like this is handled. It also reminds us of how very important it is to simply maintain cleanliness and how easily things can spiral out of control in situations such as this. Worth watching.

This movie is forgettable.
Contagion is a scientific-focused apocalypse. It is unique in that aspect, but as a don't care. There isn't a personal or emotional connection other than high statistics of death.
There are subplots that distract from the main plot and so many characters you can't keep track.
In the end, Contagion is a failed twist at an apocalyptic movie.

Beklentilerimin coook altinda bir film olmus. Bu muhtesem kadroya yazik...

Tense and well acted, Contagion grips you and holds you in its power until the credits arrive...and a little while after that too.

There is no real sense of empathy for the characters as you never get to spend enough time with them.
Most characters feel stiff and one dimensional with notsogreat writing.
Lackluster at best, extremely boring at worse.

I mean, watch it for the montaging and cross-cutting alone; Soderbergh, Mirrione, and Martinez put on a clinic of visual storytelling and tension building. It's a marvel to watch in that regard. Plotwise, there are some aspects that got on my nerves a bit, especially in the saggy second act, but they come around to interesting conclusions in the third. Even the stuff involving Jude Law and his abomination of an Australian accent, which seemed dumb and eye-rolly for most of the movie, ended up as pretty interesting and relevant social commentary. Don't listen to the people who say the plot is unresolved. Come to your own conclusions.

Man. I really like how Steven Soderbergh makes movies.

Grade - B-
It's a perfectly serviceable mystery thriller, with good performances and ever stylish direction from Steven Soderbergh. However, there's nothing particularly memorable about it, and I'm already beginning to forget it. Worth watching if it's on TV one time.

Contagion, not surprisingly, has a few small scientific implausibilities but makes an excellent effort to stick to accuracy while still managing to express the tense atmosphere a real epidemic may exert on those trying to stop it. You will find yourself noticing a little more often when the person next to you coughs for a while.
