I give the movie a 4.5 out of 5 on my scale. I cut off the .5 because I think they could have shown more of the process involved from going theory to clinical trial in a technical sense though they did show quite a bit of the technical side as well as the time it takes. I believe it was a step in the right direction in informing the masses of what goes on behind the curtain and why cures to diseases cannot be rushed. However it also shows the political aspect and the competition. So that also effects a lot of things.
The movie was great, obviously full of very talented actors as well. Harrison Ford, Brendan Fraser and Keri Russell. I am not sure if it is based on a true story or not, just got done watching it. I believe it is though. Regardless, definitely a must buy for anyone's movie collection.
I am about to watch 'The Messenger'. Some romantic flick I think about one of the many military men that have the job of informing a family of their members who have died serving their country in the line of duty. And I believe he falls in love with one of the widowers which is against military policy. Hopefully there is more to it.
