This movie had such a promising beginning, why promising? Well first of all due to the actors performing in it: Kate Winslet, Matt Damon and even Gwyneth Paltrow whom i don’t really like, all of them are stars, and this movie is too boring for them, as it doesn’t have even one captive moment. All the movie has been built on the endless contagion via the airway, deaths and many other things. Due to lack of intrigue i was waiting for the culmination of the movie, but it also has become a disappointment. The only interesting thing for me was watching how people behave in various critical situations. Of course it was not without sacrifices. The only unpleasant thing for me was watching the person who made PR upon the virus. But it ended more or less in a normal way. Maybe someone will not agree with my opinion, but that is everything i can say about it. I wouldn’t advise wasting time on this movie in particular.

The funniest thing about this movie, is that it was released right in the moment when there was a lot of flue in my city, so it was fun watching it at the cinema.I watched it with great interest at the cinema, although there are no special effects in it, and there are more dialogues. In some moments it was reminding me a documentary movie. But i would like to underline that in the first place it is a psychological movie. In which a variety of great Hollywood actors and actresses took part (Gwyneth Paltrow, Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Jude Law,Laurence Fishburne, and my favorite actress Marion Cotillard)! Matt Damon looked a bit old and fat, it was very unusual for me to see him in this condition, or maybe it was planned for him to look this way, i don’t know, the good thing is that extra kilos have not affected his performing skills. Every time someone was sneezing or coughing at the cinema i was getting very scared, but now it is a one extra reason to laugh about that!

I saw this movie with my husband who is a great fan of fantasy genre, and he loved this movie: there is a lot of panic in it, the continuous tension and a threat of danger which is above the entire world, as well as the wonderful special effects! But i was not impressed by anything except the way the actors performed and beside the way how they looked. After watching this movie i stayed with the strong feeling that i already saw it somewhere. And the huge panic throughout the entire world, and the general fear in front of something new, and about the genial american scientists. The main heroes during all the movie were desperately looking for an answer on the question what virus is killing all the people and there is it from. It is a regular thriller about a new end of the world. In some places it was too stretched, but it is ok for watching it once if not having anything else to do.

Not a long time ago my boyfriend has invited me to the cinema, and as we both enjoy seeing new movies, i can say for sure that i enjoyed seeing this one, we waited to see it for a very long time. According to the trailer there were supposed to be many people in the cinema, but despite my expectations, there were only half of the cinema. For me it was a surprising thing. Honestly speaking i respect good movie companies, and great actors, so of course i could not pass by Matt Damon, and Kate Winslet as usually was simply amazing. As about Gwyneth Paltrow, to my great surprise i wasn’t the only girl in the cinema who noticed with great pleasure that she got old.
I liked the movie “Contagion”, and enjoyed seeing that it ended not that bad as i expected, of course there were victims, but still it was interesting to watch people and their behavior in the critical situations. I think it is a very nice movie that certainly deserves being seen.

I remember the first time i s saw the movie “Contagion” in the winter time, than there was epidemics of flu and sore throat outside, that is why it made me even more scared of this disease. I watched the movie with great interest in the cinema, though there are no special effects at all in it, there are more dialogues in it. Sometimes i even had an idea that it is a mix of documentary and psychological movie. I decided to see this movie, due to the actors who performed the main role in it, such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Matt Damon, Kate Winslet and my favorite actress Marion Cotillard. The only thing i was sad about, that Matt Damon looked a bit old and a bit fat. But the most important thing is that performance of the actors was wonderful. The funny thing is that, while someone was sneezing or coughing in the cinema everyone was getting scared. I think it was shown very well how the society has turned into anarchy, there were shown heroes, and antiheroes, for me it was very unpleasant to see the person who was pr’ing on the behalf of virus.

Due to the fact that my lovely daughter has grown up enough in order to leave her with my mom, i had the possibility to see the movie “Contagion” at the cinema with my husband. In this movie the real classics of Hollywood have shown another vision of the future apocalyptic catastrophe, and at the same time they were researching human behavior while panicking. I think this kind of subjects were very popular in the American movies of the end of last century, that is why as a result by the end of 2012 the global “fashion” for such movies has returned. In this movie was shown how people throughout the world were going through panics because of the new mortal virus, which was practically unknown to the world’s scientific community. The subject line of this movie is very interesting and real, and eventually i will not recite the whole story now, all i can say is that i enjoyed this movie very much, and next time i will have some free time i will certainly watch it again.

Interesting movie showing how infidelity can turn against you and the entire country you live in. even though the topic is banal, there is something new and fresh in this movie. The slow development of the plot just makes the movie win.
