"Deep Rising" was one of the worst movies of 1998. Virus is easily worse.

The movie was postponed from 1998 and shielded from critics. (They were ot allowed to see the movie before the opening, usually a bid sign.) [15 January 1999, Life, p.8E]
95 minutes of unrelieved tedium.
Some movies are a joy. Some are a chore. And some are sheer torture. A good example of the latter is Virus. [17 January 1999, Metro Chicago, p.8]
Curtis and Pacula are thoroughly convincing in thinly written roles.
As long on adrenaline and special effects as it is short on genuine novelty and intellectual content.
The pathogenic agent to fear, however, is the one that evidently turned every line of dialogue into inane gibberish.
An unpretentious, amusing thrill-a-minute sci-fi horror thriller / monster movie that plugs right into fears of a Y2K crisis.
