The Andromeda Strain
In "The Andromeda Strain," a U.S. military satellite crashes in a small town and unleashes a deadly plague killing all but two survivors. As the military quarantines the area, a team of highly specialized scientists is assembled to find a cure to the pathogen code-named "Andromeda," and a reporter investigates a government conspiracy only to discover what he is chasing wants him silenced. Like the 1970's version, this TV movie is based on the Michael Crichton novel of the same name.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"For every admirable bit of solid sci-fi drama, there's a clunky slice of overwrought rubbish that reminds us we're watching a goofy TV movie."
‑ David Cornelius,
"Average %u2014 if somewhat over-familiar . . ."
‑ James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page
