~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

Ebola Syndrome (1996)

AKA:  Yi Boh Lai Beng Duk

Starring: Anthony Wong Chau-Sang
Director: Herman Yau

A man commits murder then flees to South Africa to avoid the law. Ten years later he rapes a local tribes woman and contracts the Ebola Virus. After starting an outbreak there, and being wanted by the authorities, he returns to Hong Kong only to start the same.

My Take:
At the core of this very over the top and gory movie is a realistic showing of how easy an epidemic can spread. Which is frightening. Combine that with some truly disgusting scenes and a very unlikable villain in the lead and make this an entertaining movie to watch.

Rating: In the middle
