Quarantine was released in 2008 and stars Jennifer Carpenter, Jay Hernandez, Columbus Short, Greg Germann, Steve Harris, Dania Ramirez, Rade Šerbedžija and Johnathon Schaech.
The only thing that could have made this movie any better, is if Jennifer Carpenter had not been wearing a bra. That way her perky nipples could have been poking through that skimpy tee-shirt she was wearing.
Unlike a lot of movies that wait 30 – 45 minutes for the plot to kick in, Quarantine throws you into the action at about the 20 minute mark. There is some minor character development at the beginning of the movie, but once the action starts, it really starts.
*** Spoilers ***
Unlike a lot of zombie style movies where there is no clear explanation of who things kicked off, the story plot is spelled out for the viewer.
Towards the end of the movie there are news paper clippings of someone being obsessed with the end of the world. By the lab the news clippings were found in, its apparent that someone was developing a rabies based virus that was intended to bring about the end of the world.
Unlike the rabies virus that could take weeks before people develop symptoms, the new virus only takes a few hours, or even a few minutes. Once symptoms started to show, it was like 28 Days Later all over again.
Towards the end of Quarantine I was wondering if its over yet, is it over yet,,,. The movie seemed to get a little drawn out there towards the end.
Overall, if you looking for a nail-biter, zombie, end of the world if there is an outbreak type of movie, rent Quarantine.
