The name of the movie Contagion is indeed very apt, especially when you take into consideration its actors. It is important to note that these actors and actresses have been established as professional players. It's understandable then that they would be able to deliver quality performances in a movie like Contagion.
Since the people involved in Contagion are pretty good, you should have no problem watching this movie and enjoying it as a movie. If you're in the mood for a cheesy and very cheesy action film, then you will definitely find something to your liking with Contagion. This movie offers a fast paced chase scene, people involved in the chase scene gets extremely drunk and fight with each other, in some cases the people involved in the fight to get so drunk that they forget to move, it's a very exciting way to end the film.
The movie also features some breathtaking and thrilling stunts that you cannot miss. The characters are able to fight through dangerous and destructive surroundings with some cool stunts and make full use of the power of their mind. You'll definitely get an adrenaline rush watching the fight scenes from Contagion. I've seen the trailer, and my jaw has dropped a couple of times.
The plot of the movie is a bit complicated. In the beginning, the protagonists do not have a clue that the virus that caused the outbreak is spread by some secret group of people that hide in the infected area of Manhattan. In order to kill the people who are responsible for the outbreak, the protagonists do the exact opposite of what the military would do, they go into the infected area in an attempt to capture the masterminds of the outbreak.
While the plot of the movie is complex, it does not seem to affect the enjoyment of the movie as much as other movies do. The story, while confusing at times, has a very captivating appeal and it leaves the viewers eager to find out how exactly the story unfolds. You may end up confused in the middle of the movie, but don't worry, you won't get bored.
If you're one of those people who is looking for a super cool and exciting action movie with a minimal plot, then Contagion might be what you are looking for. As much as I enjoyed Contagion, it was not a super enjoyable experience for me. I found the action sequences quite boring and therefore I found myself almost bored with the entire movie.
In conclusion, Contagion is a well written and entertaining movie. However, I had the same problem as many other people with the movie ending confusingly. Also, the idea of the virus being spread by secret groups of people does seem a little too far fetched. I would like to see the movie again, but I would advise you to save your money for a sequel if you are looking for another good action flick.
Overall, Contagion is an interesting movie. You will definitely enjoy it, provided you can get past the clunky storyline. If you don't mind such issues then you'll love Contagion.
