Some obscure television actors wanted to play in a movie and they chose this one. I can only call it a bad career move.
The basic idea of the film is that a "cure for cancer" was found. It not only cures all types of cancer concomitantly, but it is also a single molecule, easy to produce. The problem with this type of medicine is that it is a lot less profitable than painful drugs with side effects that rarely cure anything, therefore the evil medical corporation withholds it and instead pretends to always develop new, better stuff.
It is an interesting concept that might work if explored properly. Unfortunately we instead get a bunch of emotional "young brilliant researchers" running around the medical facility followed by incompetent bad guys while they explore their various insecurities and emotional issues. They also explore those badly, so there.
Bottom line: The Cure does a pathetic and predictable bait and switch, pretending to discuss the moral and financial angles of a real cure for cancer and instead giving us a low budget, badly acted, chase in a locked building movie.
