Typical disaster flick

As you might be able to tell by the title, Contagion is one of those "everyone's going to die" movies. It starts with businesswoman Gwyneth Paltrow who dies of a mysterious disease, but who else did she pass it to? Since she flew home from a business trip, everyone on the plane might be infected—is it too late to stop it before the entire world becomes extinct?

Everyone knows I hate these types of movies, so if you actually like them, you won't be happy with my review. I find these movies extremely frightening and, as a rule, I try to avoid them. But, with the all-star cast of Gwyneth Paltrow, Matt Damon, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Laurence Fishburne, Marion Cotillard, Elliott Gould, John Hawkes, Sanaa Lathan, Jennifer Ehle, and Bryan Cranston, I thought I'd give it a try. Thankfully, the film wasn't so traumatizing that it's burned in my brain and will give me nightmares in the years to come, but I could have done without seeing it. It's a very typical disaster flick, with an overview of varied characters that you quickly become attached to and then cringe when they get killed off. There are some gruesome scenes, but unless you're particularly sensitive, it won't be scarier than anything you've already seen.

Kiddy warning: Obviously, you have control over your own children. However, due to some frightening scenes and images, I wouldn't let my kids watch it.

Realism may have trumped entertainment....

Contagion (2011) This is an outbreak film about the spread of a new virus and attempts of medical researchers and public health officials to identify and contain the disease. The loss of order provides the tension. In a pandemic, can they finally develop a vaccine to stem its spread. This movie features an all star cast that includes Bryan Cranston, Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kate Winslet. This film moves very slow for the first hour and not much faster in the second half. It's not a bad flick, just leaves you wanting something more.

doesn't work... and Jude Law 's tooth is such a distraction

I could write a whole review based on Jude Law's character and especially his tooth. It is maybe the biggest example of why this movie fails. I mean how can you take a movie seriously when it tries to establish a character by his distracting... denture? Not to mention the stereotype of the evil blogger, eeeww!

In other news the film was as mess.

They spread the story in too many places and characters, all of them poorly written. And indifferent. I could't care less about them or the drama on the screen cause the writing and the directing failed to make me worry or feel the threat of doom.

Everything felt kind of flat. And unrealistic.

It was frustrating watching important people who where supposed to have a crucial part in humankind's survival, not taking the necessary protections against the virus (sleeping in common hotels, touching everyone and anything, allowed to go home and in other places, etc etc).

Too bad for the good cast wasted on a very weak script.
