Star Trek's Captain Kirk was unable to save this mess!

Wife and I watched this move in 2021. Overall (having recently experienced a global pandemic), we came away really grateful that things in 2020 hadn't been worse. As young parents, we experienced 'all in the feels' anytime children were involved on screen.

The action and drama were well played and kept us engaged. This is mostly "dumb, young people being jerks in a terrible situation", occasionally being flanked by real adults who have an unbelievable weight of responsibility. They weren't the greatest characters to watch, but it was a better take on the "global virus" theme than any zombie movie. Almost had a "coming of age" vibe to it. We had to stop partway through to sit on how we might react with our children. Something about it was much more real than any other 'pathogen' movie we've come across.

If you still have 2020 in your mind (with all the hand washing and face masks), this is worth a watch. It might give you one of those 'can't get up after watching' moments.

This is an interesting film that does a decent job of creating & maintaining an atmosphere of dread throughout. I'm a fan of contagion films (28 Days later, George A Romero's The Crazies, Right At Your Door, I Drink Your Blood, The Stand, etc) and find them to be very effective. This type of Horror works best when it maintains an overall feeling of reality throughout. The concept of a disease that kills off the majority of the planet's population is really scary.
