The first hour was intriguing, but it is gross and nasty...

'90s medical disaster movie has violence, peril, language.

The film is less effective, unfortunately, at trusting its audience to remain invested in Cedar Creek's drama, which results in two grating subplots that become the A-plot in the draggy third act.

Outbreak isn't a terrible film, but it doesn't trust that relative realism has enough power to hook and hold a movie audience.

Much too enamored by its Hollywood trappings to deliver a genuine story about humanity...

Too bad that the narrative is such a conventional melodrama in depicting the fight of the little man...

The irony is that Outbreak, for all its lurid finesse, ends up leaving us more dazed than terrified.

Bland plague thriller

Fortunately, there is a cure. Just turn it off.

By the time the obligatory happy ending comes along after heroic (and unbelievable) acts of courage save the day, you'll probably wish that movies could be vaccinated, so that they don't succumb to the type of stupid notions that infect Outbreak.

A clunky thriller.
January 1, 2000
An overly long medical thriller with no thrill.

No one likes to be teased, but that's exactly what this movie does to us, with predictably frustrating results.
