Travers: Oscar Winners Bite It in 'Contagion'

New film by Steven Soderbergh is too clinical and paranoid

Steven Soderbergh kills off Oscar winners and nominees one by one in Contagion, a new sci-fi thriller that's just a bit too cold and clinical to capture Peter Travers' imagination. It's a well-made movie, but it's not as fun as Warrior, a movie about mixed martial arts fighters starring Tom Hardy, that Travers says provides genuinely exciting action.
