A Must See Movie
19 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

Before watching this movie, I thought it would be boring because the film is a documentary. The only reasons I went to see the movie was because I was working at Genentech at that time and they gave out free hat. However, I became interested in it as I watched the movie.

It wasn't boring at all. It has some excitement as Genentech rushing to find a "cure" for cancer and get FDA approval, patients demanding the company for the "cure", and FDA rushing to get the medication approved. You'll experience a sense of urgency and chaos generated by all the feelings from all sides that were involved. There were feelings of fear, anger, hope, and joy. Furthermore, you'll get to see the whole process of a medication from developmental stage to approval stage.

Through this movie could we learn to appreciate all the hard work people put in to make any medication available for the public.
