A disease can break-out anytime, anywhere and to anyone. It gives no warning and it gives no reason. Glasgow, Scotland, 2008, one such deadly virus erupted in this bustling city which quickly spread throughout Scotland like wild fire. The British government built a huge impenetrable wall covering the Scottish borders all around. Scotland was put under quarantine and all its inhabitants were left there to die. London, 2035, the deadly Scottish virus reaches the city of London. 3 years ago the government stumbled upon evidence which showed human survivors in Scotland but did nothing about it. With London under threat, the government finally decides to send a team of soldiers to make their way through Scotland and come back with a cure within 48 hours. Major Eden Sinclair (Mitra) has been chosen to lead the team into what is possibly a wild, carnivorous and deadly territory. At first glance, the movie hugely reminds you of the Will Smith starrer, I Am Legend, with the basic outline being more or less the same. The movie feels dragged, predictable and boring on multiple occasions and seems like a very patchy and a last minute job. Poor performances does not help much in uplifting this movie any further. Could have been better, but only slightly.

Thumbs up: Action, but vaguely
Thumbs down: Performances, plot execution

Rating: 5.9/10
