DON'T HOPE FOR A MIRACLE...MAKE ONE!

I was really close to sobbing after watching EXTRAORDINARY MEASURES! The scenes kept on sending me goosebumps because the characters portray an empathetic role that depicts a drama in real life. This is about a father John (BRENDAN FRASER) who gambled his life finding a miracle cure for his two children suffering from a POMPE DISEASE. A genetic disease involving deterioration of muscles caused by accumulation of glycogen ( it's kind of scientific but more will be learned if you will search in the net). And his children's slim chances of survival is now on the hands of the genius, rough tough professor Dr. Stonehill ( Harrisson Ford) whose brilliant ideas remains to be only theoretical and unproven. In the end, MIRACLE happens for both John and Stonehill, a miracle they made with faith.

I learned three things from the story:

1. The tagline of the movie, "DON'T HOPE FOR A MIRACLE, MAKE ONE"
2. The most important ingredient for a miracle to happen is faith. (John's faith is like level 1000).
3. Sometimes, pride will do no good. (As for Stonehill's case)


THIS MOVE IS A TWO THUMBS UP!
