Contagion is a scientific-focused apocalypse. It is unique in that aspect, but as a viewer...you 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.
Most characters feel stiff and one dimensional with notsogreat writing.
Lackluster at best, extremely boring at worse.
Man. I really like how Steven Soderbergh makes movies.
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.
