1) infectious diseases have the potential to spread quickly throughout the globe in today's modern world, and governments do not have the capacity to deal with a truly virulent and contagious pandemic
2) more than even the direct death and consequences of that death caused by it, a major pandemic could destroy functional society through mass panic
3) in any disaster there are individuals who use the mass panic and desperation of people to their own benefit, causing even more problems. Think MMR vaccine and completely unfounded claims about autism and how politicians take advantage of people's fears for their loved ones to gain support by fearmongering.
After the beginning of the story the drama drops off and Jude Laws character, who made no sense to the film at all, never truly explained whether his treatment his 12 million follows subscribed to, worked or did not? It is never mentioned, even at the end, so your left without closure as they tried to wrap up the movie. Overall, this is worth a one time rental, do not even bother in HD, it is not worth the extra buck. Definitely not a purchase type movie, just my humble opinion.
If you like steroid muscle men with no shirts, machine guns, blood and gore, zombie tales and other no plot special effects films made for double digit IQ audiences, go look for those; you'll need average or better intelligence to appreciate this film. It also doesn't waste footage on gratuitous nudity and sex; instead sticking to an intense story without getting lost on meaningless individual subplots. Just as "Marooned" was to Apollo 13, it's only a matter of time before this goes from the big screen to CNN!
Not "if," but "when!!!"
