Trailer – Contagion – star-studded film gets high marks

Steven Soderberg’s film is filled with movie stars like Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Winslet. And the movie gets really good as DN’s critic and gives four points out of five. Svenska Dagbladet gives five of six possible points.

”There is something appealing in these controlled images. While sacrificed something for the polished surface. There is much death in ”Contagion,” but it is almost never painful to experience. / DN ”

“Filmen rör sig snabbt och smidigt över världen och mellan olika nivåer, från kontinent till kontinent, från kommandocentralens ohyggliga helhetspanorama till enskilda drabbades enskilda helvete”. /SvD
