I went to see “Contagion” today as it was opening day and fit nicely into a time slot I had open. Unfortunately, I did not have time to take a pre-movie cat nap. I tried a 5 hour energy and I’m sorry to say I slept thru much of the movie.
In traditional Steven Soderbergh fashion as director, the film was “dark” and not all the dots are connected to have a tidy ending.
Quite a cast with Gwyneth Paltrow, Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law and more. Each had their own lives and yet they were all intertwined by this believable, ultra fast spreading, deadly virus.
What I saw was interesting and moved along, but boy I think I slept through a lot of it (at no fault of the film). I definitely recommend to go see it on the big screen.
