By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 27 Sept. 2003
Format: DVD
I put off watching Virus for some time because of the general sense of mediocrity it seemed to generate in many viewers and, more importantly, the fact that it features not only Jamie Lee Curtis, who is not my favorite actress, but also a Baldwin brother (William). After watching it, though, I have to say that Virus is really not a bad movie at all. Certainly, there is a lot of Alien-type stuff going on, but there is plenty of action, a fair smidgeon of gore, and reason to hope that maybe, just this once, a Baldwin character might not survive to the end. Sherman "Is that Cuba Gooding, Jr.?" Augustus and Marshall Bell deserve a lot of credit for injecting some comedy and realism into this movie, but it is Joanna Pacula, in the role of Russian science officer Nadia Vinogradiya, who really steals the show, in my opinion. She certainly far outshines Jamie Lee Curtis, whose character has almost no depth whatsoever.
The trouble starts on Mir, as some sort of fast-moving cloud of energy takes over the space station and gets sent along for the ride down to a Russian scientific receiving vessel somewhere in the Pacific, where it puts on a light show to beat the band. Days later, a salvage boat led by the hopelessly annoying Captain Everton (Donald Sutherland in one of his lesser performances) tries to drag a barge through a hurricane; the boat makes it to the eye of the storm, where it discovers a large Russian ship dead in the water. The crews board the Russian vessel, finding no signs of the crew, and eyes start to widen at the thought of the money to be earned for salvaging this gigantic scientific ship. After they turn the power back on, they come to discover two life forms stowed away onboard, however.

About the Region B German import:

Whilst the blu ray contains an English 5.1 soundtrack the disc defaults to the German track and auto plays the film. You will need to access the pop up menu and select the English track. The menus are ion German as you'd expect but are placed traditionally. (play film, Languages, Scenes and extras)

Also the burnt in subtitles are in German, as you would expect. However, the beginning of the film is in Russian (its a Russian satellite ship) so good luck understanding that! The disc also has the dvd extras, English with German subtitles over the top.

The film and sound quality is excellent, a definite step up from the DVD. If it wasn't for the problem beginning where you are left in the dark as to what is being said (but you get the idea- something bad) it would have scored higher. That's the problem buying import blu ray from Europe!

Virus is a sci-fi action picture set on earth and it puts a spin on the inspiration and concept first spawn with the Aliens films. The cast features many stars with a line up including the likes of "Jamie Lee Curtis, William Baldwin and Donald Sunderland"; and all conduct they're roles with a modest competance; particularly William Baldwin who plays as boat engineer Steve. Not to give away details of the films plot, I found the ambition an enthusiastic and inspirational one, but the translation an inevitable feeling of amateur-ness.

The dialogue is mostly very good with tension build up and intense lines. Action scenes however, loaded with special effects and saturated with a coarse taste of humour, subtracts from the atmosphere and status of the film considerably. Towards the end, the plot becomes untenable as it twists and turns into the more and more ridiculous. The Story line I found was uktimately very weak and character development practically non-existent. I felt technically the film was well made and transitions sound, but the directing was a bit of a let down.

Fans of action/horror sci-fi, who watch Virus without the modicating expectation that the standard and merit will be as high as Aliens, may enjoy this. For everyone else this may come as an underwhelming and stale sitting... There is better out there!.

Trapped on a ship, no where to run, no where to hide, with a shape shifting alien unlike nothing you've ever seen before. It's constantly looking for ways to survive, using what ever or who ever it can find, as a host. It came here to survive and it will do what ever it takes to stay alive. It's only threat is a virus, and that virus is called... man!

VIRUS is a new breed of horror and combines Alien, The Terminator and The Thing all into one original horror film and is definitely one to add to your collection. Filled with equally as good special effects, a great cast and story, Virus will keep you in suspense throughout as it builds up to an amazing and unexpected climax.

A tremendously fun 'trashy sci-fi' guilty pleasure, 'Virus' is an action/sci-fi/horror with patchy scripting, occasionally hit-and-miss acting, and a great deal of silliness. However, it's also terrific fun if you check your seriousness at the door.
When Donald Sutherland's salvage tug crew get caught in a hurricane and their vessel is damaged, they think they've lost everything, but then stumble across a huge deserted Russian vessel in the eerie calm of the storm's eye. Boarding it, they find it deserted, and dreams of rich salvage start to dance in their heads until they discover that something else now calls the vessel home. Something lethal and inventive that has plans for them all.
Virus uses a great deal of intriguing special effects, great monster designs, and brilliant action-horror moments. A great party movie, and one for movie-monster junkies.
