what the others say
"A smart, subversive but rather cold debut from Brandon Cronenberg that's short of the dark wit that lit up his father's early work."
"Brandon Cronenberg's movie is made with some technical skill and focus, but it is agonisingly self-regarding and tiresome."
"Antiviral never wholly succeeds as either a surgical satire or a medical conspiracy thriller, and its tedious last third is like a diseased body dragging itself slowly to the grave."
