Best Pandemic Movies
LIFESTYLE - LISTING
by Birsen Oray
The best pandemic movies are about epidemics that have had or have the potential to have global impact. While some of the heroes in these pandemic movies struggle to survive, some just aim to save their families. Heroes with knowledge and skills try to find solutions to end the pandemic. But almost every pandemic movie has an army of heroes risking their lives for people they don't know. In the last few years, we have witnessed the sacrifices of doctors, nurses and all other health workers in hospitals in real life.
Pandemics are generally virus outbreaks, and they all occur with the expansion of regional epidemics. In the best pandemic movies, sometimes a virus is accidentally released in the laboratory and becomes the beginning of a pandemic, and sometimes diseases take on a whole new form as a result of mutation and threaten the existence of humanity.
Mutated different strains of a disease that we describe as simple as the flu have become epidemics many times over, and we have all personally experienced the reality of COVID-19 and witnessed its consequences. We now know that the deadly viruses in the movies about pandemic that we have watched for years and some of which we describe as exaggerated, really exist. This causes us to approach the events from a very different perspective when we watch a pandemic movie we watched in the past once again.
If the effects of a pandemic are prevented by vaccines or drugs, or if the damage is reduced by a spontaneous mutation and it turns into a state that people's immune system can respond to, this means that the pandemic is now an endemic. In some of the best movies about pandemic, scientists find a cure for the disease, while in others, people learn to live with it.
Among the pandemic movies that we watch with excitement from the first moment to the last scene, there are productions that stand out with their creative stories and acting performances. In order to select the best pandemic movies of all time, I first identified movies about epidemics that have both had a global impact and have the potential to do so. Then I selected the best among them and listed the best pandemic movies for you. I hope that the bad events that happen in the best pandemic movies do not happen in real life.
