Editorial Reviews

Parts Per Billion tells the story of three couples which are forced to make life altering decisions in the face of a disastrous war that threatens to destroy the human race. Inspired and sometimes blinded by their love, Len, Mia, Andy, Esther, Anna and Erik are as flawed and beautiful as any of the billions who are facing this human-made biological disaster.

Customer Reviews

At times, dry/boring acting & story.
Jamin Salazar
I know of no such biological agent and I can't imagine the controls it would take to develop one or why one would do so.
The Movie Guy
Nope...NONE of that really happened in this movie.

This is a terrible movie. We watched, waiting for it to get better, waiting for it to get climactic but it never did. All of a sudden I it was over.
I almost bought it at a store due to the name and plot description BOY am I glad I didn't. I'm sorry i rented it and you will be too.

This is not a science fiction film. The background for the film is that someone in the Mideast releases an airborne pathogen that kills people on contact and is traveling in the northern hemisphere from east to west, i.e. against the prevailing winds. I know of no such biological agent and I can't imagine the controls it would take to develop one or why one would do so.

That said, this fact was fairly immaterial to the film. This is NOT a film for science fiction fans. This is another end of the world film that is about relationships more than the science. It is filled with metaphors. In fact it is so filled with metaphors and overt about it, that it lessened the effect.

We have a guitar pic that looks like an explosion in it.

We have a discussion about cleaning a dish as being a metaphor for a relationship.

We have the Trilobite discussion as there were once billions, now they are scarce. As Charleston Heston might yell: "Parts Per Billion... it's people!!!"

The whole theme of the film, in case you couldn't grasp it, is read by Anna (Teresa Palmer) off a shampoo bottle near the end.

The characters are not really that exciting. It has three couples to follow and does so in part as a flash back making the film a bit confusing, perhaps by design. If you really loved something like "Melancholia" you might like this one.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, sex, no nudity.

I rented this from red box, and being a scientist was attracted to the name. Like one of previous reviewers mentioned, the movie is so far from being scientifically sound that it hurt my eyes watching it.... The movie claims that winds blew an airborne virus from the Middle East across Europe all the way across the Atlantic Ocean to the US. Really?! That's the best movie writers could do? You'd think at least a plane or boat of infected people could have sufficed.

But seeing a lot of things portrayed unrealistically I can look past this. What really got me was that the movie was all over the place. One moment we're in the present and dead people are everywhere the next we're in the past and some sex is going on, then we're looking at a girl running across a meadow??? This would been OK if there was something that tied these scenes together, but as is it is simply confusing.

There are movies that I've seen that are worse than this. However, those movies tend to be so bad that at least humor can be had when watching with friends or such. This movie on the contrary is like a black hole where neither humor nor entertainment can escape to the viewer. All the movie does is suck away time.

PARTS PER BILLION is superbly acted, ably directed; it has some well-written scenes and nice cinematography.

It is also one of the most depressing movies I have ever seen.

Caution: Depending on your point-of-view, there could be Spoilers ahead.

Like with Stanley Kramer’s ON THE BEACH (1959), writer/director Brian Horiuchi’s film deals with the end of the human race, brought on by man’s own hand. In the case of the Kramer picture, the cause was nuclear fallout, but in this 2014 release, the culprit is biological warfare. The conflict may have begun in the Mideast, but trade winds are spreading the contaminant throughout the globe.

The screenplay centers on three couples and how each duo deals with the approaching doom. All three couple’s lives are interlaced in one-way or another. Frank Langella, married to Gena Rowlands, is a wealthy scientist who, years ago, worked on the project that, ultimately, led to the world’s current plight. His attorney in a legal matter regarding the project is Rosario Dawson, and her husband is an out-of-work writer (Josh Hartnett). The third couple is Penn Badgley, a struggling musician, and his insecure fiancée, Teresa Palmer. Badgley is Langella and Rowland’s grandson.

Aside from their various relationships, the couples have something else in common: Love. Will love survive the impending disaster?

Well made as it is, this is not a movie that I would like to see a second time.

Millennium Entertainment releases PARTS PER BILLION onto Blu-Ray.

Format: DVD
Signs of cheap:
1. Miscellaneous Entertainment; AKA - Also Known As Pictures; Palmstar Media Capital; Traverse Media Productions; 120 dB Films; Bowstreet Pictures; Millennium Entertainment - credits to start to the movie that didn't render a great deal of a quality level film encouragement to this viewer.
2. Lots of cheap filler film time spent on news sound bites of a plague spreading from the MIddle East heading westward and across the Atlantic to the USA. Actually, the most likely scenario from Africa would be Equatorial trades toward Central America.
3. The nerdy virtual monitors being displayed to cheaply indicate plague spread and casualties.
4. A broken, disjointed script showing how a few small groups of people respond to plague threat - not real, very artificial and cheaply shown. The usual logically and orderly well placed bodies strewn about and other signs of the end all seemed, been down countless times before, studio contrived.
