Mini Review - Contagion
- Written by Matthew Toomey
Contagion (out now) shows the world degenerating into a mass panic after a deadly flu epidemic breaks out. It's interesting but at the same time, we've seen this story before and I'm not sure this Steven Soderbergh drama offers much in the way of a fresh perspective. Its documentary-type style also creates an unnecessary distance between the audience and the characters. Still watchable. Grade: B.
