OUT­BREAK (1995) GO! 9.30PM, M, DRAMA

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

An ex­cit­ing top­i­cal thriller star­ring Dustin Hoff­man as an army doc­tor who, along with his ex-wife (Rene Russo, above), races against time (and some cor­rupt mil­i­tarists) to stop the spread of a highly in­fec­tious mu­tant virus that kills within 24 hours of con­tact. Flaw­less in his at­tempts to ex­cite the au­di­ence with­out hand-feed­ing them, di­rec­tor Wolf­gang Petersen ( Troy) main­tains grave ten­sion through­out and his ac­tors work well with him, strik­ing a del­i­cate pace amid the ur­gency and clock-tick­ing that builds to a nail-bit­ing fin­ish. An in­tox­i­cat­ing ad­ven­ture. ★★★★
