Would Be a Reasonable Pilot of a TV Show
19 August 2018 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In an underground former missile facility with scientists and survivors from a rabies virus apocalypse, Dr. Gina Rose (Natalie Dormer) is seeking out the patient zero from Minnesota to develop a vaccine. Her assistant is Morgan (Matt Smith), who was bitten by an infected but has not changed, is the only non-infected human capable to talk to and understand the infected ones. When they capture the intelligent The Professor (Stanley Tucci), they learn that the infected breed is also seeking out their patient zero and Morgan is the one.

"Patient Zero" would be a reasonable pilot of a TV show. But unfortunately it is not. The lead actress Natalie Dormer from "Game of Thrones" performs the scientist that is ahead of the research of the infected and their patient zero. But the story has no conclusion and is deceptive for any viewer. My vote is five.
