Comments– Talk about a cast making a movie! Some of the best actors available were all in this movie, including Morgan Freeman, Dustin Hoffman, Kevin Spacey, Cuba Gooding Jr., Donald Sutherland, and Rene Russo. Hoffman and Cuba Gooding Jr. had excellent on-screen chemistry, and really made for an enjoyable film. The story was definitely a plus as well, but I am sure you know what this movie is about by now. I always wanted to watch this movie when I was younger, but never got around to it. I am happy that I waited until now so I could fully appreciate the wonderful acting done by the cast. This is one of the better virus movies I have watched recently, and I can see why it is held in such high regard. Very nicely done. Good.
Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
