Movie: Carriers (2009)

"Sometimes choosing life is just choosing a more painful form of death."

That's a very poignant statement from Carriers (2009), an apocalyptic tale of a viral pandemic that sweeps across the United States.

Four friends, Brian (Chris Pine from Star Trek 2009), his girlfriend, Bobby (Piper Perabo), his younger brother, Danny (Lou Taylor Pucci), and another girl Kate (Emily VanCamp), discover that they're far more dangerous to one another than any airborne pathogen on their journey of fleeing from the pandemic and its victims.

If you're looking forward for lots of action, gore, blood, and slime, you're gonna be very disappointed. "Carriers", of which I thought would be of the same genre as "The Hills Have Eyes" and "The Hills Have Eyes 2" is a far, far milder version.

In fact, "Carriers" focuses a lot on human interactions and sacrifices made for the sake of survival, I feel like I'm watching some sort of family drama. The whole movie revolves around the foursome with a few extra scenes that involve other people. Quite a fair amount of time is spent to explore the relationship between Brian & Danny, of which I see as a waste of time and doesn't really help to strengthen the plots.

Whatever the reason is, I believe the directors' idea is not to produce a super gory pandemic movie but a "heartwarming" movie about the values of family bonds amidst facing calamities. Will you sacrifice them for your own survival?

Recommended or not? Nope if you want to watch something like The Hills Have Eyes 1 & 2.
