Carriers, 2009

Carriers, 2009
Directors: Alex Pastor, David Pastor
Cast: Lou Taylor Pucci, Chris Pine, Piper Perabo

Stage: Home theatre

Carriers in short: Four friends fleeing a viral pandemic soon learn they are more dangerous than any virus.

Preps: None in perticular - one of the ones that remain to be watched some day and on a day like that seemed a cool selection. But I don't know the cast, or anything about the movie.

Reality: Bljah, yuk. Something that's trying to top some good ones in this topic - for instance Outbreak - well.. it fails in an instant. No dynamics, no action, just a plain getaway from the virus and struggle for life. Cast is awful, dialogs trivial, well, I did stare at this piece till the end, however, I didn't enjoy it even a bit. So in my opinion - total waste of 1,5 hours. The good thing about the movie is that it doesn't last a long time :)

A shame that the director exploits the topic which is really modern in sense of all of us watching the world wondering when something of that kind is about to happen. Unfortunately the operational part of the movie, where you turn the idea into something worth seeing, fails from the first until the last minute.

My personal rating: 1,0 (1 for the modern topic and being short, not anything else. Don't watch it - a definite waste of time!)
