Movie report

A friend and I went to see Contagion the other day. The movie had received good reviews. Plus, it had a stellar cast and an interesting premise. So I was sure it was going to be quite good. Well, I was totally disappointed. The movie is not bad per say. The acting is solid, and the story provides a realistic depiction of the impact of a pandemic outbreak of an infectious disease on society beyond the infection itself. But after a strong start, the story slow down almost to a halt. The action is fractured in too many tales, and not enough time is spent with each one for the viewers to get involved with its characters. In brief, Contagion is okay, but failed to deliver on its promises. :-/
