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.
"I was blind, but now I see"
Imagine finding something, anything that gave you basically real world superpowers. A drug that unlocked the true potential of the human mind and allowed it to work better than anyone's brain ever has before. Well that is basically what Limitless is about.
Cooper's character finds out there is this drug that allows him to use his full potential. He can learn entire languages in a day, write a novel in 3, basically learn anything he wants to. This allows him to become a basic superhuman.
Sounds pretty cool right, and you would be right, see this isn't as much about the powers, but the drugs. Who wants them, what they so, how to…
En esta película Bradley Cooper es Pedrerol de joven. Y si no, desmientelo.
An entertaining movie with an interesting premise. Solid performance by Bradley Cooper.
Interesting idea... not the best though
An extremely forgettable thriller that does barely anything new or interesting. Bradley Cooper is better suited to supporting roles, and that's made clear here.
this sucked fairly hard. Literally the worst ending of any movie I've ever seen.
Well I liked it.
God, where can i get one of these pills. I think it could be considered a cult film at this point but it's another one i just love to put on almost whenever. De Nero and Cooper team up for what i think was the first time and they are always so entertaining to watch on screen together, they bring out the best in each other and i can't wait to see more from them both. This was also what sort of launched Cooper into being considered a leading man, and he is a hell of an actor.
