Four friends fleeing a viral pandemic soon learn they are more dangerous than any virus.
The first film released in the aftermath of Chris Pine shooting to fame in last summer’s Star Trek, Carriers was actually already in the can before Pine donned his Starfleet uniform, and it arguably took the profile of the sci-fi smash hit to ensure it got a full release. It’s a good job it did, though, for whilst Carriers is a movie with problems, it nonetheless packs a good deal into its 80 minute running time.
It’s hardly a fresh story behind it, to be fair. You have four youngsters driving through the desert in a car, although in this case they’re trying to outrun the pandemic that happens to be sweeping the world. As they hunt for safety, and as we follow their increasing desperation, things inevitably become ever-more bleak for the four, and not all of that can be blamed on the threat they’re running from.
Playing heavily on the mistrust between the four main characters, Carriers is a solid, often really quite tense little movie that rarely excels but generally impresses. It could use more exposition, and it could arguably use some better performances too, but for a small, tight-budget horror thriller, Carriers nonetheless manages to punch above its weight. --Jon Foster

Sure along the way they meet that bloke from CSI: Special Victims Unit and his sick daughter who infects one of the party an hour into the movie but it was too little too late. Ultimately with such a good backstory it was so bad to see how much it flopped. In fact the only reason this gets 3 stars is because it has such a good backstory the rest of it sucks.
If you want a resume of the film read another review. All I have to say is the film is about the human condition, when push comes to shove what will we do to survive.
Then we watched the low budget CGI and action free zone that is 'Carriers'. This is nearly a brilliant film but for all the reasons that most lovers of the sci-fi horror genre will not like. This is the relatively short story of a group of four teenagers on a road trip to the coast in a post pan endemic afflicted world where (like 'Survivors')most of the worlds population has died or is likely to be dead any time soon. I can see why so many people felt disappointed with this film as it was billed as some sort of Zombie/ horror flick and actually is neither.
That is the backdrop but this is actually more of a moral study on how selfish and fragile we are as people. They are all rather unlikeable as characters but the more that comes out the more you can understand them. The two brothers are the central characters but the character development is done in tiny snap shot exchanges and you have to concentrate to pick it all up, there is little in the way of flash backs. Brian (the elder jock type - goes on to be the young Capt Kirk in one of the Star Trek spin offs) seems to be running away from the past as well as the disease and he is the alpha male who lays down the rules that ultimately mean they will all lose so were the rules right in the first place? Was anything right in the first place could be a secondary underlying question? But the human spirit certainly takes a kicking in this film, and you might need a cheer up afterwards. That said I found this totally watchable, and even a bit brave in the way it did not pander to the mid ground and very much like 'The Road' tries to show just how bad it would be and the heart rending decisions that you would need to do to survive. So I actually liked it, but so many people don't that you would probably be able to pick up one 'as new' from Amazon Market Place for a song.
