Why does Nekhorvich inject himself with the virus in Mission Impossible 2? He could've just smuggled it in his suitcase like he did with the antidote or simply destroyed it in the first place.

1 Answer 1


Straight from IMDB:

Nekhorvich felt that this was the most viable way of getting the virus to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, i.e., providing it with its optimum environment (in the human body), lessening the chances of losing or breaking a vial, contaminating others, and perhaps the virus being discovered in his baggage by customs agents. He also brought Bellerophon, the antidote, with him so that he could demonstrate to the CDC the effectiveness of the cure.
