'Contagion' review round-up: Is Soderbergh's latest a viral hit?
- Los Angeles Times: "Soderbergh's made a film you may not want to watch but you can't stop yourself from staring it."
- NY Daily News: "By the halfway mark, fans of apocalyptic cinema wind up part of the body count...There's a sense of dread in "Contagion," but it never spreads to us."
- IGN: "One of the smarter matinee entertainments to come from Warner Bros...a dense, globe-trotting thriller that bests any previous 'virus' movies (Sorry, Outbreak)."
- Orlando Sentinel: "Soderbergh struggles with the whole empathy thing...too many characters, too little time to care..."
- Entertainment Weekly: "B+...a scare-the-crap-out-of-you medical thriller about a viral pandemic that will have the immediate post-screening effect of causing a handwashing stampede."
