  • The film is most riveting in its early scenes, when Soderbergh's digital cameras locate germs everywhere – don't touch those peanuts! show more

  • By the time this globe-hopping, movie-star-crammed disaster saga - directed with petrifying efficiency by Steven Soderbergh - comes full circle, you'll never want to touch a subway pole or elevator button or ATM again. show more

  • The pressure cooker plot calls for intense performances all around but first among equals are Winslet and Ehle. show more

    Absolute nonsens and a total waste of good actors, money, and MY TIME. If they wanted to scare people about germs and contagion they could\'ve saved their time and made a 3-5 min commercial to run on TV instead.

    Steven Soderbergh film \'Contagion\' is a compelling disaster that shows the progress of a deadly virus wreaking havoc worldwide. It starts off with Gwyneth Paltrow catching the deadly lurgi in Hong Kong and then it spreading in her home town of Minneapolis on her return, leaving husband Matt Damon to pick up the pieces. There were lots of other big Stars from Laurence Fisburne to Jude Law and Kate *************** sort of like a documentary of how things progressed in the lives of different people and shows us how easily it could all happen. I was quick to look at the person in the next row who coughed and was conscious of how many times I touched my face during the show along with a quick trip to the bathroom to wash my hands afterwards. All in all a movie worth seeing.
