A brief review
4 May 2014 | by QuotiusSee all my reviews

Okay, there's a number of reviews here already ranging from horrible to mediocre. They really should be sufficient to give you the right idea. But on the off chance they don't...

I started watching The Cure with the best intentions as I'd read no reviews. I figured it'd be in the same vein as Contagion or REC. This is not that film.

Go ahead and watch if you wish. Ignore the warnings presented to you. In a digital era there's little harm in giving something 15 minutes. But! If after 15 minutes the alarms in your mind have yet to ring out "Hmmm this is a bit rubbish" maybe you'll be able to manage the rest of the movie and be amongst those who'd rate this a 5.
