But the storyline just has too many unbelievable elements and non-sequiturs, and the clues are so labored, that after a few minutes all that's left are the visuals. The starting premise is fine, stock thriller fodder. A genius wants to cull the world's population by half in order to save both the planet and humanity itself. He develops a plague virus. Okay so far. But instead of just releasing the virus he puts it in an aerosol bomb somewhere, with a countdown timer. The genius has associates. Some know exactly where the bomb is but are content to wait there and be infected when it blows up. Other associates are deliberately not told where the virus bomb is, and instead are given an obtuse starting clue that might lead them to the bomb (if they are very smart, and dispose the services of the hero's expertise), where their mission would be to ensure that no one prevents it from blowing up. The clues are so obtuse, in fact, that no one could follow them, unless he wrote the screenplay. By the way, many of the characters seem to be able to teleport from one locale to another, too.
If you like Dan Brown and Tom Hanks, you will still like this movie. Just ignore the plot.
My copy included a digital HD copy that was still good, I believe until 2019. The special features are pretty good, but don't delve into too much. A decent package for a mostly mediocre film.
