| a wonderful little picture
This movie was a little film when it was released. No big stars but many familiar character actors in this simple movie about a maniac who has stolen a dangerous germ from a US government lab. The maniac is now threatening to release this pathogen and he must be found and stopped before all life on the planet is obliterated.

It's a simple enough plot but it is carried off so well. It's an intelligent movie that will appeal to someone who wants something different as well as a movie that doesn't insult your intelligence.

A somewhat similar and equally engaging film is The Andromeda Strain. Both are well worth your time.
