It’s a DestinySurvival Pick. It’s rated R, so it’s not something for young children. It wasn’t a particularly popular movie, but it’s the ideas it conveys which make it worthwhile.
In the story humans and animals alike become victims of the same contageous illness. A veterinarian finds herself in the midst of a horrifying pandemic. Then the military quarantines the area and cuts off all communications. She must pair up with an eccentric conspiracy theorist as they fight to discover the true source of the threat and expose it or risk a viral threat more devastating than anything the world has ever seen!
In the end Pandemic says what few movies will say about the military, our government and the press.
Unlike a number of crisis oriented movies, this one doesn’t feature a brilliant woman who falls in love in the midst of turmoil and still manages to save the world. Everything doesn’t rap up neatly with the main characters expected to eventually live happily ever after. This movie doesn’t follow the formula you think it will. It takes some twists that will surprise you twice near the end.
Perhaps it could be argued that this movie doesn’t show a true pandemic, which can be defined simply as a worldwide disease outbreak. But at the very end, you get a glimpse of what could be.
The production and actors may be considered by many to be below average, so if you generally watch movies for stellar actors and actresses and spellbinding stories, you’ll be disappointed in this one. I suggest adopting the view of a friend of mine from years ago. He used to deliberately see movies with bad reviews because he found them to be better than those those that received high marks.

Watch this movie, and the next time you hear a news story about a mysterious virus, you’ll wonder…
