PATIENT ZERO

SPANISH VERSION

SYNOPSIS

After a global pandemic, a group of scientists and military try to find a cure to avoid the human race extinction. One of those militaries have the ability to communicate himself with the infected and he uses that ability to try to find the first infected. He also tries to develop a possible cure for the virus in collaboration with a well-known scientist. Watch the trailer.

OVERVIEW AND STORY

Another apocalyptic story due to the spreading of a virus which affects animals and human beings, developing a sort of rage that turns violent the infected. Survivors isolate themselves to contain the virus and create a cure. Consequences of getting this virus are predictable and already watched in other movies, even though on this one the infected do not lose the ability of reasoning and communicating which is something relatively new in this genre. It cannot be diminished a love story between the main characters which is developed at the same time as the main story. The male main character (Morgan) has a romantic past which is steadily explained while the movie is being developed and is closely related to the events. The female main character (Gina) is a scientist who researches the virus to find a cure using rats to test it. The infected in a similar way to other movies become violent, take an aggressive appearance but they do not lose their reasoning capacity.

I would like to have a ranking of the main characters in the movies that I post, a reason why if you want to give them a vote you can do it as follow:

¡SPOILERS ALERT! ¡SPOILERS ALERT!

FROM HERE THERE WILL BE CONTENT THAT TALKS DIRECTLY ABOUT SITUATIONS IN THE MOVIE, REASON WHY IF YOU WANT TO WATCH IT BEFORE TO CONTINUE IS A GOOD MOMENT TO DO THAT. WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED YOU CAN COME BACK TO FINISH YOUR CONTRIBUTION OTHERWISE IF YOU DO NOT MIND SPOILERS YOU WILL BE MORE THAN WELCOME TO CONTINUE. THE IDEA IS NOT TO TELL THE WHOLE MOVIE BECAUSE IT WILL BE ANNOYING FROM ME WITH YOU GUYS.

THE BEST SCENES

  1. When the right arm of Scooter is amputated to avoid transformation, he does a joke with that, after he turns on and is shot. It is a predictable scene, unreal, funny and frustrating at the same time.
  2. The conversation between Morgan and The Professor where it is showed that the infected are intelligent and they want to annihilate the remaining human beings to build up a new better civilisation, in other words, an evolved human being. In my opinion, this is the most original part of the movie and it helps to improve its score.
  3. When Gina, Morgan y Janet are escaping through the air conditioning duct and they find an infected rat on the front and the infected beings behind. It is a tremendous scene with a lot of tension in three ways, the possibility to be bitten by the rat or the infected and to fall down because of the duct’s failure.

THE END

Patient Zero has many cliche parts, for example, the infected wife that the main character wants to save, the good guy who is bitten and died and the sacrifice of someone to save the rest of the group. That makes the end quite predictable, so Janet sacrifices herself to facilitate the escape of Morgan and Gina who is pregnant. They go away on a motorbike looking for a place to have their child and continue with the research for a cure. Open ending with the option of having a sequel in case the filmmakers would want to do it.
