Comments
In "Virus", the movie takes place in the ocean, in the calm of the typhoon, as the ocean-going tugboat crew take refuge from a storm in an abandoned science ship - the Akademic Vladislav Volkov. However, the crew finds that their problems have just begun. They seem to be sharing the vessel with an alien intelligent life form. And just who thinks who is the virus that must be destroyed in order to survive? And what of these humans, just a bunch of spare parts?

13 Mar - Greetings! I tend to share your opinion of " Virus ". It was trite, predictable, very short on strong, original dialogue and lacked a decent story line ( " just kill the damn thing! " , please, it's been done ) BUT, it WAS another great opportunity to watch Jamie Lee Curtis get wet and jiggle around in a skin tight body suit...and that, in my opinion, was worth the price of admission as I am a HUGE fan of the beautiful Jamie Lee. It's a pity she isn't getting better roles because she's quite an accomplished actress. -- Mike

19 Jan - Roger Ebert compares "Virus" to "Deep Rising," saying that although "Deep Rising" was the worst film of 1998, "Virus" is even worse. I agree that "Virus" is a really bad film. But I disagree with his assessment of "Deep Rising," which was very tongue-in-cheek and a lot of fun, with a much better monster. "Virus" takes itself too seriously, and the monster is a rip-off of other movie concepts, including Star Trek's "the Borg."
