Plot: When the crew of an American tugboat boards an abandoned Russian research vessel, the alien life form aboard regards them as a virus which must be destroyed. Runtime: 99 mins Release Date: 15 Jan 1999
People don't seem to see this film in the right way. This movie was excellent. People must have had their hopes set too high for this, and it a shame this movie is going to bomb. in a world where so many horror rip-offs scream, I still know..., urban legend....... , it's great to see a very original movie. Based on an excellent comic book series from over a decade ago, this movie delivers some suspense and some great special effects with plenty of blood and gore for the TRUE horror fan...
AWESOME SCARY MOVIE! (by mr_ghost)
Because of the poor reviews I wasn't expecting too much when I went to see Virus. Boy, was I surprised. Pleasantly suprised. Virus is one of the best Science Fiction/Horror movies I have seen in a VERY long time. The acting was good and the special effects were great. Jamie Lee Curtis was good and Donald Sutherland was hilarious. If you are looking for a good time, GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!
holy crap !!! (by ericxton)
this movie was great .... lets see ..evil bio-death-bots consuming all life the get rid of us for we are seen as a virus ....other than moon trap i have not seen yet ..erg your don't here much about this kind things ...sure you have your ..."aliens take over people "crap and all the other remade over and over again story lines .... but the robots of death ....maybe its just me but i cant get enough of that ....it would be cool if they made a second but they would just screw it up trying to hard so its for the best this way ... but to all the "haters" of this film <more>
...what !?!?!??!??! maybe you were high when watching it ...or drunk that could explain it ...maybe ... 4 , vocalist GOD IN A MACHINE
if i were a entity without a body a place with robotics is where i'd start! that and human parts i loved this move, it reminded me of playing DOOM on PC for the first time when it came out, i liked the story myself and i wish there were more movies like this one. robotics, human parts etc.. i think i have watched them all from Hardware 1990, all the terminator movies but this one stands out to me. the only thing i wish is that i wish i could had seen more of the "goliath" in the movie. if you have not seen this movie, give it a shot or look up some images on google or <more>
look through the images here to get an idea of what it's about, if you like horror and robotics i think it may be your cup of tea. :
Great cast, great action, great movie!I was riveted to my seat from beginning to end. If you want loads of action, horrifying special effects and the type of scare that will stay with you for a while, then you will want to watch Virus.I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who loves Sci-Fi/Horror as one of the best movies ever made.Jamie Lee Curtis is incredible as Kelly Foster, the ship's navigator and Donald Sutherland pulled off his role as Captain Robert Everton of the Sea Star, a not too mentally stable but sea hardened captain, as only he can, with magnificence.Marshall Bell <more>
was equally as wonderful as the whiney and slovenly drinker, Woods, the pilot of the tug. He pulled off his role with such realism that I found myself feeling sorry for him one minute and actually telling him on the tv to stop whining the next! He was great!Sherman Augustus put in an unforgettable performance as Richie, a sly as a fox Navy veteran, weapons specialist.I own this movie and watch it often. With this much action and suspense, you can't get tired of it!
Post Cold War science fiction. No more Soviets. The Russians are not dangerous and the Chinese are not yet in the picture, not to speak of the terrorists. So danger had to come from the sky, hence from the cosmos, hence some immaterial living form, at least immaterial according to our definition of matter. They just take over any kind of communications network and have at their disposal the whole sum of human knowledge, plus theirs, and they start spreading. They take over a Russian scientific boat and then recuperate anything, computer parts, mechanical parts and human parts, to build some <more>
hybrid beings that can take the control of the ship and then go to some human harbor and invade the planet. But it all goes wrong when some real human beings decide to use their intelligence and training to destroy these hybrid beings, the extraterrestrial cosmic being behind and sink the boat. And we are really after the end of the Cold War since it is the last female Russian survivor who will sacrifice herself to slow down the main "machine" so that the two last Americans will be able to escape while her sacrifice will start the setting on fire of the ship and the blowing of it up and down into the sea. A little bit simple, though quite entertaining if you like that kind of paranoid science fiction: the human species is always menaced, from inside or from outside, and it is always thanks to the sacrifice of some who use their intelligence and know how in a creative way that the planet and humanity are saved. Paranoid and naive. And the final couple that escape the ship is of course a man and a woman. Adam and Eve not dead yet.Dr Jacques COULARDEAU, University Paris Dauphine & University Paris 1 Pantheon Sorbonne
This movie will probably not go to the history as one of the greatest. It will probably not even be remembered a couple of years from now. But it is a good horror/thriller movie with some decent effects. It's been a while since I actually jumped more than three times in the chair. Ok, the tricks to make you jump is kind of common, but they obviously worked.Apart from the end that is very strange this is a good movie. The weird thing though is that right after Kit Foster and her boyfriend ejects from the ship the storm goes away. Hmm... Of course you can't compare this with <more>
milestones like any of the Alien movies, but it is well spent money, and two hours killed time.
Say what you want about this movie not meeting expectations of the 90's but it was very entertaining and thats most of what I expect from any good movie.Bad aliens, greed, bravery, bravado, science gone bad and survival all play major parts in this flick.Strong women, brave men and treacherous men are a good mix for any story and this movie has them in abundance.The aliens seem to want something from humans and its not in the best interest of these humans to meet their needs.Try not to be comparing this movie to other sci-fi and just enjoy an interesting twist on the genre.
This is what I always imagined the BORG to really be like! (by Holohead)
After reading less than favourable reviews, I was concerned this movie would not live up to the potential of the plot scenario. That is, an Alien entity arriving on Earth and fusing humans, or parts of humans, with mechanical technology to further it own existence.Fortunately, the movie lived up totally to my expectations. We start off with a BANG! and than it's non-stop, sit on the edge of your seat stuff until the end. Anyone who watches STAR TREK knows the BORG. This movie makes what we've seen of the Borg look like a stroll in the park. Whilst extremely graphic in nature, <more>
VIRUS's depiction of this Aliens handiwork is as it would be...gruesome! Without giving away the plot, you have a claustrophobic situation reminiscent of ALIENS with Jamie Lee and Bill Baldwin & crew being hunted down one by one. Chase scenes involving a multitude of half human/half machine monstrosities keep coming at you like Arnie in TERMIMATOR. The special effects and art concepts are original and really make this movie stand out. Interestingly you'll see Mr. James Cameron thanked in the fine print of the credits. The mechanical marvels are certainly up to his standard. I loved the movie and now on DVD its straight into my collection.
