    Synopsis


    Outbreak
    A handful of scientists struggle to prevent the destruction of a small town -- and possibly the entire country -- in this suspense drama. In the mid-1960s, a deadly virus is discovered in Zaire that wipes out an entire village in 24 hours. Government researchers are brought in to investigate, but the military opts to destroy the village rather than risk further infection. Thirty years later, Sam Daniels (Dustin Hoffman), an expert on contagious diseases, is called in when the virus re-emerges in Africa. A monkey carrying the bug is smuggled into the U.S., and a suburban California town soon begins to succumb to the illness. Sam scrambles to find an antidote with the help of his ex-wife Robby (Rene Russo), a Center for Disease Control researcher, and their colleague Casey (Kevin Spacey), while Gen. McClintock (Donald Sutherland) has his own reasons for wanting to use bombs to contain the epidemic, and Army surgeon Gen. Ford (Morgan Freeman) is caught in the middle. Outbreak was produced in the hopes of beating the film version of Richard Preston's bestseller The Hot Zone (about a real-life epidemic) into theaters; script problems shelved The Hot Zone, and Outbreak had the infectious disease market to itself. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Contagion
    Steven Soderbergh presents this look at what happens when an infectious disease threatens humanity through varied viewpoints from an ensemble cast, including Marion Cotillard, Matt Damon, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Laurence Fishburne, and Kate Winslet. The Informant's Scott Z. Burns provides the script. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

      Great deal on two, "What if" Bio thrillers! Outbreak has the most action, but Contagion is a more likely scenario, considering some of the more recent Bio scares in the last 10 years or so. Makes you really wonder who knows what and what info we are being told and what can be done in such an event! Good watching!

      Best Buy was holding a sale on two movies on one disc. I wasn't looking to buy these at the time. If you're looking for higher quality, you can buy them on Blu-ray individually and pay more. On the other hand, if you're looking for a good deal then this was two for the price of one on DVD.

      Viruses out of control.

      These movies are about nasty viruses that get out of control and start infecting segments of the world population. It's a science fiction that shows, with much Hollywood drama, what could happen with such a mass outbreak. Interesting and depressing at the same time.

      This is not a recent movie but it was the first time my family and I watched it and we really enjoyed it. There was adventure during the entire movie. We have watched it twice and enjoyed it both times.

      Two virus based movies that show you how scary a sneeze, cough or a man made virus can be. Good cast and acting in both movies.

      Good movie, really a good cast, starting with Dustin Hoffman and Cuba Gooding. This movie makes you think if this really goos happen, given the condition of the world now.

      I really like both of these movies. I owned them previously but they were stolen when my house was robbed. I needed to replace them.
