    Spoiler...Paltrow carps it within minutes of the start which brilliantly sets the scene for the deadly virus. WHO could not have produced a better public health vid..as the title credits roll you dare not touch anything without wearing a pair of marigolds.,..

    An inside view of an virus outbreak. most interesting learning how the two main components of the virus came to be. it takes a long time to get there though. Outbreak was better.

    Contagion is realism in its pure state. It's a great thriller, the best about an epidemic yet. There's just one huge complaint: The "conspiracy theory" subplot of the film is pointless as it is. It shold had been either better developed or simply omitted.

    Πως καταστρέφεις ένα υπέροχο casting????!!!

    Φτιάχνοντας μια ταινία τραγικά βαρετή σαν αυτή και με χαρακτήρες αδιάφορους, το λιγότερο, προσθέτοντας όλη σου την κακή θέληση για μια έστω καλή ταινία.

    I find this film so compelling. I love how it tracks several different stories surrounding a single epidemic, dealing with both science and humanity in great ways.

    Laikā, kad šādas filmas redzētas ne mazums versijās, Soderbergs nolemj, ka vajadzētu uzfilmēt arī garlaicīgu versiju,

    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
