Cool ending, but honestly, most of this movie is pretty boring, especially if you've seen this year's pandemic thriller Contagion...now there's a good virus movie.

I knew this was a bad movie, especially when the big HAZ-MAT bus is parked on the beach and a diver comes out of the water carrying a 25 gallon drum with a big America flag painted on the side of it. The diver takes his helmet off and says, "Yep, looks like it's American." No shit bright eyes! I thought the Russians always painted American flags on their contaminated waste before dumping it in the water.

The movie opens with Hurt coming home to his wife and child and inadvertantly passing on a deadly disease which kills them within minutes. Fifteen years later Hurt is on the trail of Weller, who is carrying the same plague. Weller had just been fired from his security job and is the cause of an industrial accident which leaves him contaminated. There is the usual government conspiracy, bad guys and love interest. (McElhone is good in this movie, but see her better in Californication), The ending is a little predictable, but the bad guys get what they deserve. Not the greatest movie ever made, but worth a watch.
