This is an entertaining and exciting film about a pathologist (Dustin Hoffman) who discovers a fast-spreading, deadly disease and does all he can to stop it from spreading to the rest of the world. Unfortunately, he must battle the wits of a seemingly ignorant general (Morgan Freeman) who wants to keep a specific detail about this disease secret. While all this is happening, Hoffman and his ex-wife played by Rene Russo who are working together, are engaged in a believable re-kindling of interest. A picture that is a good example of how exciting present-day Hollywood can really get.
