Decent Thriller

It's hard for me to precisely categorize this movie. Drama? Sure. Thriller? For sure. Horror? Mmm, I don't think so. It's funny, because it's hard not to label the movie horror, seeing as how it deals with a grotesque infection, that spreads worldwide terror and brings civilization to its knees. However, the infected aren't the antagonists here. Once you've been infected, you're basically already dead. Ultimately I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. After reading other comments here, it seems the general consensus is that the pace is too sluggish. I'd have to agree that it was a long 90 minutes, but as someone who is prone to falling asleep during movies, especially after an 8 hour shift, my interest was effortlessly sustained throughout the movie. The production values here are top notch. I was never bothered by bad acting (or at least too bad). The cast fit my tastes, maybe only falling short with Piper Perabo, but that would only be nit-picking. The photography wasn't jaw-dropping, or even slightly innovative, but it was still more than adequate. What actually impressed me most was the writing. There are some real gems in there, but mentioning them would be spoiling some great scenes. I seemed to sense some anti-religious or religious undertones, however I honestly can't decide which. I suppose that's what I liked so much about it, the morality was left quite vague. Anyway, a solid effort. It's possibly lacking some more gore, and action, but that also could have just made it tasteless. I would recommend this to anyone who's a fan of biological horror, but I'd say ultimately you should see it for the story, and not the action.

First of all, this is NOT a horror film.

Second this is NOT a zombie film. So don't be fooled by the idiotic marketing of this fine little gem. What this is, is a deliberately paced drama about a group of survivors in a world plagued with a virus that's pretty much killed everyone and the hard decisions they have to make on their way. It could be a companion piece to The Road almost, a sort of prequel set a few years before. While it is "slow" it only clocks in about 84 minutes which is far too short in my opinion and I wanted more really. Something tells me that the film was originally much longer but cut down by the producers to please the teens who all seem to hate it anyway. Good film, crap marketing.

More significance than they realized

The year is 2020, and I live in New York State during the Corona virus epidemic. Pretty crazy how a small window of a couple moths changes your perspective on everything right? "Carriers" was released way back in 2009, and the funny part is it was already delayed, because it was filmed in 2006, before Chris Pine was household name. Everything about this movie is just exposing how people get around to things when they feel like it, and that is also what makes these situations so awful. I'm not going to lie, and pretend that "Carriers" presented new ideas, or plot elements, that haven't existed before, but it did have talented actors explore the human psyche of what happens when society breaks down. A couple years ago, this would feel silly, because people don't turn on eachother so fast, but yes they do. I can't even wipe my ass half of the time now, because other people have decided to hoard all of the TP. The real genius in this film is how it explores the best and worst of human behavior, and how we are all capable of making these crazy decisions that can cost other's their life. Would you save a little girl if you know that she is infectected and will kill your brother, and GF if you let her in ther car? Or, do you leave a loving father to care for her alone without help? What if your beautiful GF contracts the disease? Do you stick by her, and die together, or do you kick her out of the car to survive longer? Those questions used to sound silly, and now they are very profound... It's just so strange that I, and my GF found this movie during a global pandemic. It's a deep dive into who you are, and what you believe in, and honestly, every opinion is validated in some way.
