I am a huge fan of post-apocalyptic films. Even so, I cannot in good conscience recommend this film for even the most die hard fan of the genre. Plodding, predictable picture with, in my opinion, nothing going for it.

I thought this was a really good movie. Look at the all star cast........Glenn Ford, Chuck Conners, George Kennedy, Edward James Olmos, Bo Swenson, Robert Vaughn and Olivia Hussey. This is another end of the world, but we can save it kind of movie. Still worth watching!!!

Shortened version feels shortened, but it's still good
Wes Saylors Jr. | Boone, North Carolina | 05/17/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"My only complaint about 'Virus' is that I got a copy that was shortened by a good 40-plus minutes and is not in widescreen ... and so at times it felt like I was watching a pan and scan movie that had been liberally edited. However, the good news is that 'Virus', even suffering from these handicaps, is still good. The movie (made in the great decade of movies like this -- the 80s) involves the theft and eventual accidental release of a virus so lethal, it wipes out everyone in the world ... except for a few explorers and military types in the arctic. These survivors must band together and find ways to keep going. The great twist is that, in the 80s, many nations didn't get along but still had exploration stations grouped near one another in the arctic ... Russians and South Americans and French and Americans must fight their dislike for each other and learn to, well, get along. And that proves to be really fascinating, especially when a Russian commander orders the destruction of one of his own submarines because it might be infected -- and so the Americans gladly help out by torpedoing the sub to the bottom of the ocean (who said the Americans and Russians couldn't get along). This movie is a whos who of disaster movie royalty -- George Kennedy (and let's be honest, if it has George Kennedy, you know you're gonna like it), Chuck Connors (being manlier than man), Henry Silva (the budget movie weirdo), Glenn Ford and Robert Vaughn and Olivia Hussey (sadly Olivia is kind of wasted in this one, but she's still beautiful ... just the kind of woman you want to gaze upon as a deadly virus wipes out the planet). This is a Japanese movie and so the metaphysics and the actual action get mixed up into something that kind of resembles poetry some times. The other times, the movie has you riveted as it moves along at a breakneck pace (part of that pacing may be the 40 minutes of editing). Again, a widescreen version of this obviously epic movie would have been nice, as well as the entire movie ... but for the price and for the resulting movie, it is still a good deal. And again, it's got George Kennedy ... the grand old man of disaster. That's worth a look."
Terrible DVD!!!

"The film is a lot of fun, but the DVD is beyond terrible. It looks and sounds as if someone projected it onto a wall and shot that image off the wall for this DVD. Horrible, horrible quality!!! Not even worth the $.78 that it's selling for used. The producers of this garbage DVD should be ashamed of themselves. They're obviously trying to make a quick buck with no regard whatsoever for quality."
