The movie was .. okay --- it's got a good side and a stupid side::: GOOD: The story line .. i think the fact that a chemical going through the air and infecting people is a fine story as long as it is transfered into the movie well, which is was in this movie. BAD: the characters/acting ... Acting was terrible! If someone had to play ***************** not have been COOL GUY Mark Wahlberg

This movie should not be on this list. I saw it at the movies then rented it and will probably purchase it. This is a good movie with a different twist.
