Storyline

Larry Sullivan is a white collar FBI agent, but when a mysterious virus strikes on board a cruise ship he's send to his uncle John, a recluse who shoots at strangers, but one of the last surviving experts from the 1960s programs to develop biological weapons. He and his Russian-born old friend Yuri Zenkovsky confirm it's a variant of the extremely contagious and deadly Marburg virus, which was made as contagious as influenza in order to wipe out most of a continent's population if spread from four strategical points, and soon it is at three; the North American dead-count rises exponentially...

Readers of IMDb do not Deserve This Movie...
21 June 2003 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This cable television movie was released on VHS in Brazil a couple of months ago, in 2003. It has good actors and is well produced. The characters are well developed and it could be an above-average interesting action-drama movie about the outbreak of WW3; but it is not. It is a very disappointing movie, with a cheap message against many nations. First, there is no World War 3, as the title suggests. Indeed, the plot is based on a terrorist attack through a virus released first in an American passenger vessel and then in an American Stadium of baseball. Timothy Hutton is an FBI agent that has the mission to contact his uncle, who may have experience with this type of virus. There is an amazing poor dialog between Eric, the character of Terry O'Quinn (an FBI agent) and his director, that can summarize the quality of this movie. The FBI director says:" - It is official, Eric, we bombed the wrong people!", and Eric (Terry O'Quinn) replies: " - I am sure they deserved it for something." Enough? No, the movie seems to have no end. It 'fades out', without any conclusion. I would not recommend this movie to other readers: I am sure they do not deserve it! My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "WW3"
