Carriers Review


Four friends fleeing a viral pandemic soon learn they are more dangerous than any virus.

Well anyone expected a zombie virus or an action movie are going to be disappointed.  This is certainly a character piece with 4 young adults traveling across a desolate United States that has been mostly wiped out by a pandemic.  It is a movie about how they deal with other survivors they meet, and how they try to keep themselves free of the unnamed virus.  The movie really never offers anything more.  There are no explanations for what has happened, no tidy endings.  I would have expected to see a bit more destruction and chaos in a world that is dying.  For the most part the roads are clear and the towns still standing even though you would think that people fleeing the virus would have caused damage as well as looters, and just the sick themselves who have about a week to live after contracting the virus.  It is just an okay movie as a small budget character piece.
