Contagion Movie Review




Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive
Contagion is topical, slick, fast-paced and embellished with a stellar ensemble cast that keeps you engrossed in the drama, despite the fact that most of them don't take much of screen time.The high point of Soderbergh's film is its tone: never sensationalist, always restrained and therefore credible. With the world grappling with sundry new epidemics -- SARS, Mad Cow Disease, Swine Flu -- Contagion has an expediency to it which makes it eminently watchable. Doesn't seem too far-fetched, this threat of a new and deadly disease that originates from a bat and a pig and spreads through something as unavoidable as human touch. Time to be scared. Really scared.

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Shalini Langer Site:IndianExpress
Just when you are settling down to see a movie about an outbreak as you haven't seen before -- and there have been some -- by a director who knows how to get up close and underneath the skin, Contagion develops into a sort-of thriller without an emotional centre.More than scared, you leave awed -- not about all that you watch but never see around you, but about those microscopic beings and how they move worlds. Not necessarily your world.

Everything about this cautionary tale is chosen with care from the international locations to the top-draw cast. Depicting events with an almost documentary-like feel, director Soderbergh (Traffic) effectively conveys the mounting sense of dread along with the attendant collapse of the social order.The narrative takes a turn for the clichéd as it trundles along to an anti-climactic revelation.Although Contagion doesn’t measure up to the high standards set by Steven Soderbergh, it’s certainly a cut or two above the current crop of doomsday fantasies.

Ratings:1/5 Reviewer:Mrigank Dhaniwala Site:Koimoi
What’s Good: The paranoia that the narrative creates in the viewers’ minds; the performances; the pulsating background score; Steven Soderbergh’s realistic direction.What’s Bad: The docu-drama type of screenplay; the lack of emotional scenes; the absence of a connect between the characters on the one hand and also between the audience and the characters on the other hand; the slow pace of the narrative that induces tedium.Verdict: Contagion makes for a very different kind of a thriller which will appeal only to the discerning city audiences in India.
