The world is sent into a pandemic as a deadly virus spreads from one person to another. The germaphobe's nightmare watches people die left and right as a team of doctors rush to find a cure for an unknown disease that spreads like wild fire. The movies is almost like a documentary as it goes day by day with a counter at the bottom of the screen showing the progress of the disease. Matt Damon is a father left alone at home with his daughter to handle trying to keep her safe from a world that has turned upside down due to the outbreak. He watches the news and handles keeping his daughter in the house to protect her. The military has to take over to keep people from getting out of control. Lawrence Fishburn is with the CDC in Atlanta trying to find a cure. There is a cover-up that will have you thinking of an episode of CSI but he is truly trying to help. Paying attention to all the details is so important as the individuals are linked by the outcome of the horrible virus. Hospital camps are set up for the sick as the doctors try to keep the infected quarantined. It can be quite scary watching so many die and wonder how easy such a situation could possibly become a reality. In the end a trail is made connecting the dots of how the disease started on a remote island through pigs ingesting fruit that bats have infected. An airline attendant played by Gwyneth Paltrow seems to be the one who starts the world wide spread. The movie will have you watching everything you touch. The movie is PG-13 and overall is ok for teens and up to watch due to the graphic nature of the deaths. One probably would not want the little one to watch the hour and forty minute long drama, thriller due to some of the mature content. There is a hint of infidelity and a lot of dead bodies.
