What would you do if you could take a pill and suddenly access percent of your brain power? This is the premise behind Limitless, a sci-fi thriller that looks as if its makers utilized around 30 percent of theirs. The story gets away from itself as it barrels forward. The tiny bit of sense it makes at the beginning is quickly sacrificed in a conclusion so facile, illogical and cheap that it could use a dose of NZT itself. Village Voice - Nick Schager Mar 15, Without a complex thought about narcissism, merit, or addiction, Limitless is content to be an empty, one-note, satire-free fairy tale of avarice and corporate-political ambition.

An interesting story told with great fx and cinematography. Its a great ride. Go see. Limitless is a fairly gripping thriller. What does this pill do? Doesn't it have everybody's minds racing after watching this movie? Very original film that doesn't have to rely on trends in the movie biz. Cooper is the outright best actor for this thriller.
Rough around the edges but Limitless is a fairly gripping thriller. Rough around the edges but smooth, suave and articulate when need be. There is a bone to pick with this movie In fact, when I watch it, I literally sat there thinking, "Really. THIS is how they end this great movie?!?!
This film seems to be a bit predictable and there is an awful lot of "why didn't he do that In fact it puts the whole film into some This film seems to be a bit predictable and there is an awful lot of "why didn't he do that In fact it puts the whole film into some perspective. Well worth watching and probably under estimated as a thoughtful film. Tyranian Apr 11, Cooper is terrific and this film has some great moments but story loses its way a bit.

Super Reviewer. Share on Facebook. View All Photos. Movie Info Aspiring author Eddie Morra Cooper is suffering from chronic writer's block, but his life changes instantly when an old friend introduces him to NZT, a revolutionary new pharmaceutical that allows him to tap his full potential. Soon Eddie takes Wall Street by storm, parlaying a small stake into millions. His accomplishments catch the eye of mega-mogul Carl Van Loon De Niro ,who invites him to help broker the largest merger in corporate history. But they also bring Eddie to the attention of people willing to do anything to get their hands on his stash of NZT.
With his life in jeopardy and the drug's brutal side effects grinding him down, Eddie dodges mysterious stalkers, a vicious gangster and an intense police investigation as he attempts to hang on to his dwindling supply long enough to outwit his enemies.

A man takes an experimental pill that enhances his natural abilities and makes him super efficient - at cleaning his apartment, at writing the next great American novel, at remembering pointless trivia to impress saucy co-eds, and at day trading with ferocious international businessmen. The pacing is hip and bracing, and the introduction of the side effects with Anna Friel's made-under performance is piteous and daunting.
The end or beginning, depending on how you look at it is, of course, rather absurd with the vampirism thing and Eddie not having to face the "Flowers for Algernon" consequences of attempting to rise above his station. His meteoric climb to the top makes good use of Bradley Cooper's natural fast-talking cockiness, but even I'm a little over that trick.
Alice S Super Reviewer. Aug 28, For what's basically an "airport novel" story line without any surprising twists, there's enough action to keep the audience interested. Decent action and professionally made, earning this film a rating just slightly above average. It's worth the time if you're just looking for diversionary entertainment. Christian C Super Reviewer. Jul 28, Exciting and fast-paced, Limitless is full of thrills, but it doesn't always know where it's going. The story follows a writer who takes an experimental drug that increases mental ability, allowing him to become a high-powered business broker, but his success comes at a price and is full of danger.
However, the writing is rather poor; leaving multiple plot holes and substituting storytelling with exposition dumps. There are also some visual tricks to show the drug's effects that just end up being confusing. Still, the film does a pretty good job at presenting an intriguing mystery and at building suspense. Limitless doesn't quite deliver on its promise, but it's entertaining and has some good action.
Dann M Super Reviewer. Nov 25, I think Bradley Cooper is fantastic, and his presence even managed to convince me to watch American Comedy which as a general rule I disdain ; The Hangover. He tells Eddie that the drug is FDA approved, and that it will help him access the full potential of his mind, but that's really all the info he gets, then naturally, Eddie decides to take the strange clear pill.
⭐️ WHAT'S NEW?
So, as you can see, there's already already a couple of dodgy odds and ends, although I was glad to hear that the drug was in actual fact not legal, and the dealer was just lying, made the fact that not every single person on the planet was using it more viable. But that's just the first couple of minutes, and afterwards it doesn't really have that much more getting in the way of its suspension of disbelief. But enough about the story, you can go anywhere and read what the movie is about, a blurb on the back of your DVD is no more or less likely to give you a quick plausibly true account of what happens in a movie than some reviewer on the web, there's already plenty of those going around.
I much prefer to tell my readers what the movie IS.
