Contagion2 And A Half Out Of 5Contagion is a plot driven dramatic feature about an unseen antagonist whose lethal strike has the potential to wipe out the entire world where the humans finds themselves surviving against nature rather than fighting back. Kudos to the writers for accounting in, each character's perspective till the last breath of the feature that helps keep the audience tangled into its poignant world. The primary objective of the feature would be to bind all the multiple characters and their sub-plots so that it doesn't come off as mere news to the audience which unfortunately it fails to do so. Addition to that, it also fails to create the anticipated impact on screen since the stakes in here never communicates with the viewers. The writing is also raw and a bit busy in its spiraled web since most of the time is spent upon offering the essential triggers and closure to each character which is frankly off putting. Soderbergh; the director, at the heart of it, is brilliant on executing each frame no matter how theoretical the script grows, he tries to keep the crisp alive. The performance is up to the mark by amazing cast like Damon, Winslet (She stands out alone with higher margin), Law, Fishburne and Cotillard. It is short on technical aspects like background score, camera work and cinematography. Repercussions that each decision at such critical moment might breed and its fast paced tone with shorter runtime are the only high points of the feature. Soderbergh's world might be passionate and have some idea to share, but within its self-created pathos procedure, the intriguing idea fades away quickly before the construction even begins. Contagion; similar to its antagonist, sticks with you until you surrender yourself with exhaustion and pity for the makers, with such a swing and a miss act.

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.

Contagion was a bit of a mixed bag for me. The cast was stellar but under used, the plot was very predictable and characterisation was frustrating.However the movie does have some highlights. The music does a great job of adding tension, which is very important as the screen writing didn't have any by itself. The lighting and general cinematography were also well executed, with a very exaggerated colour palette providing emotional depth or definition in an otherwise boring and flat movie.All in all, watch it to enjoy the great direction by Steven Soderbergh, as he did the best he could with the awful screen writing and unoriginal plot ideas.

It was a pretty good movie for the subject it displayed. Contagion was able to show the problems that arise from diseases. The film makes you question the health care systems and roles the government plays in maintaining control of the spread of diseases. It demonstrates the possibilities of outbreak and epidemics that could happen and what role everyone plays in that scenario. There is the government and international organizations that work to help eradicate it but are they eve doing it in the right way or is it all for profit, which leads to anger, fear, and hate which caused the destruction of order in the movie. Overall this film was quite interesting in that it low-key showed us the behind the scenes in an outbreaks and the necessity of disease control and prevention.
