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.

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.

I can't believe that the trailer showed action, had exciting music, showed billions of folks dying in countdown, showed folks running for their lives, and "they are not telling you the whole story" so it sounds like maybe a doctor or scientist is on the scene.

Nope...NONE of that really happened in this movie. The "end of the world" was nothing more than a distant backdrop; a stage setting for a lot of whining by three couples.

I don't think I have been so disappointed in a movie. They lead you to believe it will be one thing and it's completely the opposite. If this isn't fraud in advertising, I don't know what is.

I thought it sounded good after watching the trailer. However, the movie was slow with parts that had me thinking.."What does this have to do with the movie?". Again, we would not recommend it to anyone.

Perhaps the biggest problem with a film like this is how to market it. Many years ago in a comedy routine, I think Steve Martin was discussing, with a straight face, how to make appealing titles versus bad titles. He said something like "Starting with love always sounds appealing. Like 'Love in the time of...' that will catch people's attention. Then he went on to say you wouldn't want to end that with "the plague". "Love in the time of the plague"--that would NOT be a good title. That's the movie we have here: Love In the Time of the Plague.

Most people writing reviews don't like it; their complaints seem to fall into a few categories: That it's unscientific, as in "The winds don't blow in that direction". That the story isn't linear, and some people found that a bit hard to follow (probably while they were Facebooking at the same time). That they were expecting a hard-on disaster movie and instead what they got was a relationship movie. That there were "too many metaphors". Well maybe it's just trying to establish a bit of cosmic balance, because most movies anymore seem to have NO metaphors at all...

You can separate people into two basic groups: Those who HAVE seen, even owned and used, the EXACT brand of liquid soap referenced in the movie, and those who HAVE NOT! Sadly if you are in the ever-growing latter group, you'll miss the comedy of the references to it here (yes, in my opinion, it was funny).

If you want a disaster movie to play out like some kind of future history lesson, completely plausible and grounded in fact, then what the heck made 2012 so popular? No, I don't think most people care that much really, whether an end-of-the-world story is scientifically completely plausible or not. It's FICTION!
