Played against a backdrop of biological warfare spreading death across the globe, this drama focuses on the couples and how they handle their impending doom: an elderly couple, this couples grandson and his fiance,and the elderly man's attorney and her husband. The acting is decent, though I must admit to not being a fan of Gena Rowlands. This is a talking heads movie, where nothing happens - it doesn't really even follow the spread of the biological weapon - and it is so slowly paced you just about fall asleep listening to these folks drone on about their non-interesting lives. By the time it ends, you are glad for it to be over one way or the other.

Nothing too special here. These bland couples with their bland stories while the rest of the world dies off more interestingly, it really isn't exciting. The movie tries to be tasteful and artful with the concept, but it just comes off as missing.

Ouch. Hard to watch so many good actors trying to rescue a misbegotten project with not a single element of good drama.

This was a good movie. Probably only watch it once. The story is good but really depressing. I wold suggest renting it.

I am so glad one man's daughter got to live for 15 more years and give him a grandson. It only cost the WHOLE world their lives! What an awful story, but the cast was wonderful.

A movie about love, can it survive? After a plague hits, we're all tested & love is put to the test as well, I love the cast the directors is solid. A good movie.

If you like movies that are disjointed and going nowhere, you'll love this one! The plot is completely under developed. Characters are unlikable at best. The script is dull.

I felt like I was watching a movie on the Hallmark channel. It was extremely boring.

The minutiae of human life plays out against a global disaster in "Parts Per Billion," but moments of real resonance seem to be lost.

I know the possibilities of mass death and destruction are very real. I grew up during the Cuban missile crisis and remember the fear on my parents faces. I feel that the threat of mass destruction is there for a reason...to keep it from happening! I certainly do not want to spend 90 minutes being depressed out of my mind watching someones interpretation of what they believe the end will be like. What a waste of talent this bomb was to make ( no pun intended) I choose to come out of the theater feeling enriched in some positive way. Hard to believe someone thought people would want to see this downer. PASS! Ken K.

Slow. Unlikeable characters. Obvious scientific mistakes.

What a disappointment. Totally lost interest around the 15 min. mark. Slow, poor character development. Cheesy plot. B movie vibe.

Movie felt like it ended incomplete. It seemed to miss a well thought out plot as well. And it was painfully unentertaining.
