Critic Consensus: Uninspired performances and pedestrian writing make Containment just another in the long line of disaster movie scenarios we've seen played out countless times before.

This is a disaster movie writ large for TV and the simple fact is, it works despite some none-too-subtle turns. You can't help being enthralled by a story you wouldn't want to be a part of.
Containment plods along hitting every expected beat, marching along on a straight line while it desperately needs to take a sudden turn.
Despite its flaws-and the buckets of fluids used-I found 'Containment' to be the TV equivalent of a car wreck. It's frightening, but you can't look away.
Creepy, gross, and entirely too plausible for comfort, this drama presents a picture of just how easily a major city could be brought to its knees.
Sigh. We've seen it all before, and we've seen it much better, making us already immune to this weak strain.
