Did somebody say montage?
Contagion is an interesting movie. It mainly consists of numerous montages glued together by a little bit of drama and some rather convincing convulsions by big name actors.
I despaired when in the first scene of the movie a rather tired, ugly and strangely shiny Gwyneth Paltrow appeared on screen. Thankfully, less than 10 min later she was dead. The foaming at the mouth was a nice touch.
After the tragic death of Gwyneth the movie got a little better. Lawrence Fishburn was in it, but sadly he didn’t die.
Midway through I was praying the virus would win and that every single human would die from hilarious, mouth frothing, convulsions and awake moments later as zombies. But alas, it wasn’t that kind of virus – realism intruded.
Other than this, it was a pretty good movie.
