Don’t talk to anyone. Don’t touch anyone.
A thriller centered on the threat posed by a deadly disease and an international team of doctors contracted by the CDC to deal with the outbreak.
User Review: Contagion’s plot is simple. A woman(Gweneth Paltrow) has just gotten back from Hong Kong and two days later, she bites the dust, and is named "Project 0". But as it turns out her disease is spreading across America, and its up for the scientists to get to the bottom of it, and the citizens to get away from it.
Contagion plays like your usual plague movie. It involves a bunch of characters, including a father(Matt Damon) and his daughter, a crackpot journalist(Jude Law), scientists(Including Kate Winslet, welcome back by the way, Laurence Fishburne, and Marion Cotillard). The genre is hard to capture, mainly because a lot of the ideas have been used before.
But the film is what i’d like to call the"Magnolia" of disaster movies. The one that others should look up to, and remember and cherish forever. Contagion is more of a character study, and all of the characters are real and we deeply care about them.
This is also the most stylish plague movie ever. The way the music and the mood transcend together works so well. The performances are strong from everyone, and the film is chillingly real. I may not believe in 2012, but Contagion makes you wonder. It makes you wonder a lot. Germs just keep spreading and spreading. And I hope people’s love for this film just keeps spreading and spreading. This is the best film of the year so far.
