Verdict – 3/5

 

Pros –
1) Seems scientifically accurate with recent similar outbreaks of H1N1 and SARS.
2) Climax explaining the source of the virus.
3) This movie appears like a prequel of those post-apocalyptic movies and TV series where a deadly virus had swept Earth population.

 

Cons –
1) This movie is not an action adventure disaster movie but only a scientific mock-drill of possible events in a virus outbreak.
