Default Contagion (2011) Cinema Review

I've long held a slight fear and sense of reverence to the possibility of a force that could, at the very least temporarily, be out of the control of modern medical powers. Whilst the Resident Evil films and 28 Days Later take a post-apocalyptic view which ramp up the horror aspect, it's been some years since a serious cinematic look at a viral apocalypse.

Beth Emhoff (Gwyneth Paltrow) returns from a flight to Hong Kong with relatively minor symptoms. A raised temperature and blurred vision. Within hours, she's dead. A day later, her son also dies and her husband Mitch (Matt Damon) is sent to confinement. All around the world, hundreds and then thousands of people are suffering the same symptoms and quickly the deaths number in the millions. This is a virus with no cure, which can't even be grown in a laboratory in order to create a cure and all the while, society has descended into lawlessness, the world gripped in fear.
