User Reviews: 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
