Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw
Righty, I think I should give movie reviewing a go. 50/50
50/50 follows the journey of Adam, a young man who is diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. He is given a 50/50 chance of survival, hence the title.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays the role of the protagonist, Adam. Gordon-Levitt does a great job showing how vulnerable he is and you really feel sympathy for him. From the moment he's diagnosed with his illness to very end of the movie, you'll love Adam.
He is joined in his journey by his best friend, Kyle, play by Seth Rogen. This is not your stereotypical Seth Rogen flick though. Sure, he plays the comic relief stoner character that he is known for, but he does serve an actual purpose in the film and isn't just there for the laughs. He plays the best buddy character very well, even if his humor is a tad silly for a movie of this nature.
The movie is quite hard to stomach, especially during it's final moments. 50/50 will bring out many emotions in you. It'll make you laugh, it'll make you cry, but one thing's for sure, you will enjoy the ride.
My 3rd film of the year behind Harry Potter and Limitless.
