The Cure: Good ideas, flawed execution

I'm not a big conspiracy guy but The Cure deals with one that personally I think is very feasible. I'm referring to the cure for cancer existing but it being more profitable to treat than to cure.

The story is powerful and heart wrenching, made even more impactful by just how realistic the concept is.

I was really enjoying it but was saddened to see two things take place. One character bounces from being likeable to detestable every other scene like I've never experienced before.

Secondly the story becomes a bit far fetched, I'd have rather have seen a slow burning thriller without the need for guns and explosions. The front cover even shows it off to be exactly that, but it should have been so much more.

The Cure is a USA/NZ joint venture and a passable one at that, but it should have been better. If only they'd kept their feet on the ground.

The Good:

Excellent concept

Cast do a decent job

Mostly well written

The Bad:

Inconsistent characters

Gets a bit daft by the end

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

If you don't think the worlds governments/big pharma companies would/will do this you're out of your mind

Not every movie need guns damnit

Not a bad movie at all

It's a OK movie with an OK story.

I like the flashback parts in the movie which is a big plus. Background music is good. However, the movie lacks depth in screenplay and lots of plot hole.The actors were OK.

For the budget they have spent, we cant ask for great graphics. A better characterization for all the actors and more screen time for CEO would have made the film better.

Its definitely not a 3.5 movie or worst movie I have ever seen. It deserves 6 for trying.

I liked it because the initial 30 minutes were gripping and I will give it a 6 for their attempt.

Cure for cancer(s)

First, this film is based on a false premise to anyone who had a family member with cancer. It is actually over 100 diseases, most of which the causes are unknown. That's why chemotherapy is so hard on the body. It has to kill both healthy and unhealthy cells. In addition, many of the drugs are dozens of years past their patent. Now imagine that in fact a drug did exists that would cure everything from the ranges starting at childhood leukemia progressing to prostate and breast cancers. Any company in their right mind would want to make the trillions a drug like this would be worth. Not to mention that in 7 years they could release an extended form like Ambian did with Ambian CR to avoid secondary cancers from the initial chemo and so on to extend the patent.

The acting is sub-par, only the female lead shows future promise. This is the first full length feature by Gould who wrote/directed/produced this film. With the pounding music I wonder if he also did the sound editing as well.
