The New York Times - Jeannette Catsoulis
The romance may be risible, but the scenes of mass panic and political desperation are slickly disturbing.
Variety - Maggie Lee
The story flatlines as the crisis escalates, falling prey to pedestrian human drama and improbable conspiracy subplots.
Time Out London - Unnamed
Director Sung-su Kim doesn’t spend long explaining how the heck this ravenous form of avian flu has come about, concentrating instead on the chaos as the epidemic spirals out of control.
The Guardian - Unnamed
Coughs and sneezes do indeed spread diseases in this amusingly feverish thriller, a Korean attempt to take back some of those lurgies let loose by Soderbergh's colder-blooded "Contagion."
Total Film - James Mottram
The result? Not so much "World War Z" as World War Zzzz.
