OK, a couple of things.

First, don't assume that Sorenson is going to give you better results than any other compression software. Your codec and settings are what matters.

Second, don't forget about your audio. Choose AAC as your compressor, and you should be able to knock quite a bit off that size.

Third, half on the h.264 scale is actually pretty high for web, especially for a 25 min video. Youtube videos at that resolution are encoded at roughly 500kbps (which is considerably lower than 50%).

If this is for personal use, I would look in to using Vimeo. It will give you pretty decent quality while saving you the headache of hosting and embedding the video, and these days it's considered pretty acceptable in the professional community.
