Reviews

Offbeat comedy about a young man coming to terms with cancer. Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as Adam, a sweet-natured radio scriptwriter in his late twenties who is diagnosed with a rare form of spinal cancer and given a 50/50 chance of survival. With the help of his girlfriend (Bryce Dallas Howard), his best friend (Seth Rogen), his mother (Angelica Huston), and a trainee therapist at the cancer clinic (Anna Kendrick), Adam begins to discover what really matters in life.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
50/50 is a great film that masterfully mixes some genuine laughs together with some truly touching moments. As other reviews have stated, this film is about a young man's struggle with cancer.

What makes this film stand out for me personally was not the comedic elements, but the poignant heartfelt moments, such as when he tells his mother. It was these scenes that I truly appreciated, and it was done well as I was very much able to empathise. Gordon Levitt should also be commended for putting in a wonderful performance.

At times however, I felt the pace was a bit slow and Seth Rogen's character could have been better portrayed by a less stereotypical actor.

In summary however, if you want a great drama, with the occasional laugh, I highly recommend this film.

(I hate putting spoilers in a review and I avoid doing so at all costs but I don't know how else to write this; but I'll try to minimise the damage as much as possible.)

This is a lovely film that had me laughing and crying throughout. I thought the actor who played Adam was very credible and convincing and did an excellent job of portraying his changing array of emotions. It was this sensitive depiction of his emotions that made the film so convincing and real. He also seemed so absolutely helpless and hopeless yet he still possessed huge strength when dealing with his girlfriend and his bleak future.
I also loved the way the film handled the emotions of those around him. At first I was angered at everyone's selfishness about his cancer and how they made a lot of how it was affecting them but then I realised that was what made the film special and that was its real theme. I loved when he found Kyle's book and knew undoubtedly that beneath the selfishness and bravado, Kyle was coping as best as he could. It also showed me that his family/friends didn't know how to cope and it showed their pain and awkwardness about his cancer. I loved the way the film dealt with his operation and the Pearl Jam background music made it all the more poignant.
This was a very moving and touching film that dealt with an awful subject in a very real and different way. I thoroughly enjoyed this and the humour lifted the intensity. Not a light bit of entertainment but very well done.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This isn't the sort of movie I'd normally watch and the subject matter is bound to be something that a lot of people have an issue with as regards this being touted, at least in part, as a comedy. But despite all this I found it very watchable, if not great. The performances were very good, I only really knew Seth Rogen before this and got pretty much what I expected from him, but the lead was very natural in what was probably quite a demanding role, although he didn't appear to be as emotional throughout as I might have expected, but since it's stated that this is based on a true story I'm assuming this was fully intended.

As long as this reaches its target audience; those looking for a touching drama with comedy elements rather than an out and out comedy, I'm sure it'll be highly appreciated.

Format: DVD
Joseph Gordon-Levitt who has played very colorful quirky characters, now plays a rather dull Adam, a man who plays by the rules and still gets cancer at an early age because he has bad genes. Seth Rogen is his uncouth best friend who is far more likeable. The non-conformist in me was glad Adam got cancer as opposed to Kyle. The humor is low impact. It wasn't LOL funny. For instance Katherine (Anna Kendrick) is Adam's stress counselor. She is 24 and just a delight, thank you Anna. Adam makes a remark about Doogie Howser. She doesn't know who he is and asks, "Does he work here?" We discover that the more syllables a cancer name has, the worse it is.

His GF Rachael (Bryce Dallas Howard) becomes less supportive as Adam is not her only interest. Like "Man in the Moon" (for those who like funny movies about cancer) the film gets sadder as it progresses. As a cancer patient you get to make friends with other cancer patients, bond with them, and go to their funeral.

Anjelica Huston did an excellent job as Adam's mother for the short time she was on the screen. The acting was good. The script was up and down. Joseph Gordon-Levitt starts out as the weakest person in the film. It wasn't until he told Rachael to get off his porch does his character pick up and we start to develop respect for him. He is able to take us through a cornucopia of emotions from euphoria to despair. The film starts out as a 3 star comedy, but ends as a 5 star drama.

F-bomb, sex talk, sex, brief shadowy nudity.

50/50 is a well made film with a genuine heartfelt story. I really got into the character playing the cancer sufferer Joseph Gordon-Levett. He plays the part brilliantly as a guy who doesn't want any sympathy, he just wants to move on.
The support cast are also great and give the story a good mix of happy, sad and angry emotions.
I enjoyed this movie and recommend this for anyone who likes a bit of humour with some mixed emotions.
