    Carriers has moments of genuinely communicable horror.

    A moody, engaging end-of-the-world horror-drama, if a bit too apocalypse-lite.

    Definitely worth watching. There are few 'scary' parts and the film's real worth is in the emotional heart tugging that occurs when 'carriers' are left behind to die. Great performances by Chris Pine and Piper Perabo. Expand

    This a very ockward movie, it has really good moments. that are scary as hell and the actors are pretty nice as well. But then you start asking yourself. Where the hell did this disease come from? Still it´s a good movie. Expand

    Terrifyingly sad. However, realistic in its portrayal of such an apocalyptic pandemic. Acting was believable and not to strained. However, more information on the specifics of the virus, the state of the world at the time of the characters' lives would improve the film. Ending left too much to the imagination, another half an hour depicting those who survive would have made this movie horribly amazing. Expand

    Solid thriller, believably done with a very good cast. It has some very tense scenes, it was always interesting, well made and thought provoking. The characters are well developed. Expand

    Carriers is a surreal look at the end of humanity through the eyes of 4 survivors of a deadly virus. Unlike many other similar stories, Carriers follows two brothers and shows just how far people would really have to go in order to survive something of this nature. Its raw and graphic and made me wonder if this is how the people who lived through the plague felt. Expand

    Dull, boring and very short movie (~1 hour 30 min) that tries to cover a story that is to long to fit in it, like trying to fit an elephant in the trunk of your car. You can't bond with the characters because they ether die or the movie starts to roll the credits. Movie doesn't explain anything about the infection, how characters got together, what they did after they finished their journey in any way so that you should care about them, the outcome from the situation or the entire situation itself. All that coupled with some of the situations that couldn't possibly happen in realty (character acting and reacting to the environment) the movie is just meh... Expand
