Contagion Synopsis: Human beings are the most widely Earthlings. It was a comparison of birth and death rates are not balanced, people will never truly extinct, unless there is the X factor that changes the comparison earlier.
Factor X is the scenario that’s what really happened. No one knew where the deadly virus come. It spreads very quickly and can not be controlled anymore. In a short time, the virus spread and killed, the virus is not an easy thing. The virus is so intelligent and able to mutate rapidly even before the man can find the weak point of this virus.
This virus not only attack physically. Those who have not contracted the virus is in fact also is dead, at least they had no hope of living longer. Fear is rampant. Not only the fear of this deadly virus, but also fear in other people itself. Peoples have been divided. Torn apart by something unseen by the eye.
Matt Damon admitted more frequently washing hands since he was involved in this film, Contagion. Film direction by Steven Soderbergh is definitely gripping. Without a little surprises like another horror movie but the drama is so natural it was very scary.
BABEL and CRASH aroma wafted from the beginning indeed. Lately there are many filmmakers who try to approach complicated in making a film, but not many can succeed. Contagion is the one that got away from the pinhole. Not easy to directing a movie like this, but Steven Soderbergh seems to have realized that from the beginning.
Rake in some big names like Marion Cottilard and Matt Damon is not just a marketing trick. This movie script is strong enough and certainly the actors and actresses will not be difficult to bring their respective roles. Although is unclear who is the main character in this film but it still able to run smoothly until the end of the story. The scene which presented even feel natural yet effective way to make the audience did not rise from his seat until the movie end.
The only one that feels a little awkward is subplot about a journalist who was spreading rumors about the vaccine of this virus. The story of the character played by Jude Law feels detached from the main story line.
