An enjoyable enough movie, but very predictable. The idea of toxins in the jet fuel spreading an immune weakness throughout the population, while a drug company has a vaccine is interesting. But there are just too many glaring holes in the plot. Oh, and the fact that this was likely a TV movie was obvious by the apparent breaks for a commercial, i.e. black screen.
They used Dogpile search engine, so apparently they didn’t want to pay any royalties using the typical search engine. Or that major search engine company objected to having their product appear on the screen.
The government expert (Heche) diagnosed the disease as plague, and connecting the dots to find victim number one was perhaps the most interesting part of the movie. But she was a virus expert, and she would have known that the cocktail of antibiotics is useless against a virus, but plague is from a bacterium, so antibiotic cocktails should work. Making a connection with elevated Barium and Aluminum levels did at show some intelligent detective work. But how could she mess up not knowing the difference between a bacteria and a virus? She kept saying it was the plague virus.
And then the stereotypical evil corporation was brought into the picture, and especially a drug company. But when they went into the drug company to try and find the vaccine that they knew had to be there, they simply walked right in, and down the stairs. Sorry, you simply would never walk into a corporate headquarters and roam around. You would be stopped at the front desk. And the last scene. The military working with a drug company to repeat the same mistakes? At least that is the message suggested.
So three stars for the movie being enjoyable to watch, but not higher since it was derivative and in many ways predictable and too many plot holes.
