    I thought it looked pretty interesting too. Especially since it reminded me of the flash game Pandemic 2. Any of you guys played it? Pandemic 2 and Other Free Internet Games @ CrazyMonkeyGames.com

    Anyways, it has an all star cast and Steven Soderbergh directing so hopefully it doesn't disappoint.

    Trailer in case anyone hasn't seen it yet:

    I wanted to see it too, but I've heard from some, that it was a let down. I feel that if they had said to he'll with it, and gone to a R rating, it would have been better. I get frustrated with movies that shoot for PG-13 but could have been better as an R...

    well, i actually saw the movie. it was a good movie but not in the sense i was hoping it would be. rather than focus on the destabilization of society they spent a lot of the movie focusing on where the virus started and where it was going. though this approach was interesting i wanted more of people going crazy and society breaking down. a problem i did have with it was that cell phones always worked the entire movie, quite unrealistic if you ask me. and matt damon's daughter fucking pissed me off. i cant stand children in movies like this, they never listen to their parents and go do the dumbest thing they can possibly do the first chance they get. anyways, all in all, i would give it a 7/10. worth seeing, more worth renting.

    I've seen this movie and Warrior, both were good.
    7.5/10
    If you had to choose between the two i would recommend Warrior over Contagion.
