    The most chilling element of this movie is its lack of sensationalism in how it portrays the world dealing with a pandemic.

    Meticulously detailing the outbreak of a killer disease from patient zero by the worlds Disease Control agencies, it weaves multiple stories together.

    I would be a perfect score from me, if it had not been for the unnecessary sub plot of kidnapping mid way through.

    Excellently scary!

    An American woman collapses and dies from a flu-like disease, only hours after she returned from a business trip to Macao. This is just the beginning of what becomes after a few days a worldwide pandemic with millions of deaths that provokes desperate attempts by healthcare professionals to find a cure and by government officials to control panic and maintain order.

    White-knuckle medical thriller that meticulously presents an apocalyptic scenario without any cardboard-cutout villains or gun-totting heroes that miraculously save…

    Can't help but think of Outbreak birthed from the '95 Ebola scare but Soderbergh pulls together a much grander (international) scale spec-fic thriller which explores the socio-political surrounds of a pandemic as much as the disease outbreak itself. Smartly cast and well penned—with the notable exception of Jude Law's ill-advised 'Australian' accented conspiracy blogger—Soderbergh's efficient style and tonal command helps this film to gallop along nicely. I also really enjoyed Jennifer Ehle in science-geek mode :D

    A disease that spreads throughout the nation and the world that strikes fear into all is something that has been done so often that the film needed to do something to make it feel original. Soderbergh has a great directorial feel that is present in the film and the cast is great with Matt Damon, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslow and others giving great performances, but a silly subplot and that feeling that we've been here before many times…

    Soderbergh's sense of humor is even edgier than his friend Fincher's.

    Gwyneth Paltrow dies in it, so it's like the greatest movie ever!

    There's a few frustrating editorial elisions (how Cotillard disappears for ages, the bit where people actually find out that there's something to riot about) and Jude Law's performance is still a blight on the whole thing, but those mild issues aside it's a fucking great film, and scarier than ever in these anti-vax times.

    Extremely well made! Fantastic performances from an all star cast, some truly tense, gut-wrenching scenes, an overall sense of dread.

    My only frustration with the movie is that every now and then, one or two characters will do something that defies logic in such a small way, that is insignificant to the plot, but jarring in how out of character it feels. Those moments are few, but it's enough to keep me from giving it full marks.
