We're all for this kind of brave risk-taking, in theory. If only the results turned out to be, uh, what's the word...better.

Contagion begins with a cough and ends with a whimper.
June 30, 2013
This high-stakes drama is infected with too many characters and a silly subplot.

This is a movie that will pound your pulse without having a pulse itself. It's quite proud of it.

What we end up with is a film that is not particularly bad, just one that seemed unnecessary since it's a story we've already seen many times before.

Steven Lederberg's realization of Scott Burns' original screenplay is more interesting for its statistics and protocols than gripping drama as the world comes to terms with a virus that threatens to remove one-in-twelve from the planet.

Todo luce muy cool, demasiado para un film en el que la gente muere como moscas y en el que se pretende alertarnos sobre una inminente crisis global. Pero no hay tiempo para desarrollar interés emocional por ninguno de los personajes.
November 8, 2011
Star-studded and well-directed pandemic story that offers style at the expense of thrills, any emotional connection, and at times, logic.

There is only one voice in Contagion and it is a rather empty one.

More likely to cause an outbreak of yawning, heavy eyelids and a compulsion to keep checking the time.

Think of Wolfgang Petersen's magnificently entertaining 1995 virus-on-the-rampage adventure Outbreak, take out the drama, excitement and involving characters, and that's Contagion in a nutshell.

Plays like a humorless send-up of all-star disaster pictures

Contagion is, by and large, about as enthralling and compelling as a typical episode of CSI: Miami.

Elliot Gould!? What, were George Segal and Ryan ONeal unavailable? Was it "free cheese day" at the celebrity shelter?
September 16, 2011
Gets off to a very strong start, but eventually gets bogged down in questionable plotting and weak characterization.
September 13, 2011
It seems we have had this plot a million times before and this movie offers nothing new or involving.
September 11, 2011
With so many tales to tell, Contagion just can't possibly deliver on every one of its promises.
September 11, 2011
'Contagion' is an ambitious and well-meaning film. However, despite some fine performances, it fails to deliver the type of thrills and suspense promised in those exciting previews.
September 10, 2011
...only a few of the stories compel and even the reliable Matt Damon fails to make a strong impression. "Contagion" is an OK medical thriller, but there's something off about it.

Steven Soderbergh​'s viral "who brung it" is a mostly style-over-substance affair.
