Quarantine 2008

It's always fun to watch a movie over the weekend for many reason - destress, unwind, for laughs, etc. Yesterday, I watched this "apparently" scary movie called Quarantine. The cast of the movie was pretty good - Jennifer Carpenter (Exorcism of Emily Rose), Jay Hernandez (Ladder 49), Johnathan Schaech (That Thing You Do), Greg Germann (Ally McBeal), Columbus Short (Stomp The Yard) & Marin Hinkle (ER, Grey Anatomy, Spin City). All top notch cast.
I must however say that, although there were many thrilling moments, the overall story wasn't all that great. What really scares you is the sudden falling of human bodies - very loudly, the sudden breaking of glass/windows, etc.

The movie is about this apartment building which is infected with a deadly rabies virus which originated from a dog called Max who belongs to a little girl. No one knows that the girl is infected until they discover that its her dog that infected everyone else. The funny thing is, in this movie, you watch the entire thing from a single camera angle and no one lives - EVERYONE DIES!!
I shall let you see some pictures before I speak my thoughts!
This is a scene when the fireman dropped to his death after being bitten by an infected old lady from the 3rd floor! Again, its the sound of the fall that will have you jump off your seat!
This bitch was forever screaming in the movie! So freaking annoying man! Always insisting that the light be kept on towards her! Usually, the women want the light off :)
This is the beginning of the movie. The whole movie is something like The Blair Witch Project.
The little who got infected by her dog. She acted really well. Like a psycho bitch!
The beautiful old lady who went around biting people and getting them infected.
Ok, so here's the thing. I have an issue with this whole thing. My thoughts are:
1. At the end, everyone dies - which means, EVERYONE dies. So the fact that the movie was shot from a single camera angle, how did they retrieve the camera?
2. If all the innocent people died, that means that the radies infected freaks are still in the building coz all the innocent people have been biten and are now infected - so how?
3. The movie ended with the reporter being dragged on the floor! Am assuming she's bitten too. Then comes on the credit!! So stupid
There is no ending. So many questions left unanswered. Like:
- Did the authority blow up the building?
- Did they go in a clean it up?
- Did they go in and get killed as well?
- Who retrieved the video camera and how?
Anyways, if you feel like going to a movie and walking out dumb-founded, this is it mate!
