Watching this film gave me only one question, "How long did people know about the virus before the public did?" Like the virus we are facing today we weren't prepared for and it makes me wonder how long did certain officials know about it before the rest of us did? I did learn from research that the virus we are in now started in China and not sure if they knew who the host was because every virus starts with a host and in theory if you found the host then there is a possible way you can examine them and possibly find the cure but that is again still in theory. This film raises a lot of questions about certain viruses and how to stop them, which is still being done even now there are many viruses out there including this recent one that we have not found cures for .

1995. A GOOD mystery, action, fun thriller movie with a great cast tracking a killer virus spreading across the USA and the efforts of scientists to contain it.. kind of like the 2020 Coronavirus infection.

Starts off reasonably entertaining. Hoffman is fun to watch, the plot is engaging, and the dialogue is pretty snappy. Unfortunately, in the final act, the film is swallowed in a load of silly, left-wing propaganda that destroys any and all believability and entertainment value.
