Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
What if a pill could make you rich and powerful?
A paranoia-fueled action thriller about an unsuccessful writer whose life is transformed by a top-secret "smart drug" that allows him to use 100% of his brain and become a perfect version of himself. His enhanced abilities soon attract shadowy forces that threaten his new life in this darkly comic and provocative film.
You know how I knew of Neil Burger before I watched this?
From that poster for Divergent where they made sure that Shailene Woodley's tight-betrousered arse was prominently sat right in the middle of the poster, right next to whoever the bloke is in it. Not because his name is notable on the poster. The only thing notable on that poster is Shailene Woodley's arse. No.
Because I thought, "Well that film looks like something I would rather not watch even if I wanted to have an evening of hating myself, but I suppose I'd better find out whose arse that is seeing as though they've gone to such trouble to show…
I went to see Limitless at the theatre back in 2011 and I knew that it was going to pass on tv so I decided to watch it again. I pretty much remembered everything but there were a few elements that I didn't recall well. I have to say that like in the first watch I had a great time!
The concept is very cool, a pill that allow your brain to work in a super scale. You become a super intelligent person, it's like you have mental powers and you are capable of doing anything, your abilities are limitless.
The camera work and some of the effects are great and perfectly suits the surreal atmosphere of this film about…
This movie is a douche bag.
There's little I love more than high concept sci-fi, so when someone reminded me that I never got around to seeing this I was all kinds of excited. I mean, the idea of accessing the supposedly inaccessible portion of the brain is a bunch of hooey, but that wasn't going to stop me from enjoying some cinematic mind games. And there are definitely parts of it that work rather well—like the scene where the side effects of the drug catch up to Mr. Cooper all at once—but ultimately the movie doesn't really take the idea far enough to be interesting.
The drug basically makes Cooper into a charming encyclopedia. And what does he use his powers to do? Acquire money,…
I feel like there's a lot more that could've been done with the premise, but that being said, I found Limitless highly entertaining and the plot was very well developed. Bradley Cooper proves yet again to be an immensely likeable lead actor, as it's his performance that truly draws you into the film. The supporting cast was rather one-note, but De Niro had a few stand-out moments near the end. Overall, Limitless is a thoughtful and visually breaktaking film that is able to move past its lack of ambition thanks to a great lead actor and some cool twists and turns.
Oh hell, yes.
Sometimes films come out that you just know you'll see on TNT one day when there's nothing else on. Like this one.
Review, from Twitter:
Limitless is a rather compelling movie ... like Crank, but, you know, good.
Limitless was a nice bit of flick to to unwind my day with. Think they could have done a bit more, but interesting concept.
Wild and fun.
I had forgotten there was a movie. I watched a few episodes of the tv show and now I'm looking forward to watching more.
Can we get a season 2 of the show on Netflix because this should be a huge franchise
La historia de un cretino que se toma una droga que le aumenta la inteligencia y se vuelve más cretino aún.
Entertaining and fun if rather forgettable movie.
There are movies that you really have to rewatch, and there are those that do not benefit at all from a rewatch. This one is defenitely one that do not benefit from a rewatch. Having said that I hope I can help a few to save the time for better movies..
Yes, I am very immature. And bored.
If you're immature like me, leave a suggestion.
