I saw it: in the theater, yesterday
Synopsis: a deadly virus spreads around the world

My reaction
Concept: 1/4 (Bad)
Story: 1/4 (Bad).
Characters: 1/4 (Bad). They could have been a lot worse, considering how little time is given to any character. That said, it would have been a much worse movie if any more time had been spent with any of these characters.
Dialog: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Pacing: 4/4 (Great)
Cinematography: 3/4 (Good)
Special effects/design: 3/4 (Good)
Acting: 3/4 (Good)
Music: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Subjective Rating: 6/10 (Okay, 2/4). Novel, but forgettable. There's no reason to care about anything in it, unless you're the sort to be scared by the plausibility.
Objective Rating (Average): 2.2/4 (Okay)
