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.
Thanks to a great lead performance from Bradley Cooper, stylish direction from Neil Burger and a fast pace, Limitless is a fun, energetic, and entertaining thriller.
Experimental drug allows a failed writer to exploit his brain power to the fullest making him a financial genius - but also triggering the unwanted interest of some dangerous people. Entertaining, energetic adaptation of Alan Glynn's novel "The Dark Fields" doesn't fully explore the ethical implications of the premise but still delivers nice thrills while offering Cooper a chance to shine.
I loved super chef in this movie, but he FUCKING SUCKED OBAMA BALLS in Burnt because it's a shit movie and a ripoff of Chef, the cinematic masterpiece by Jon Favreau. Basically it's a guy that gets addicted to drugs that make him smart, it's unoriginal. I used to have the biggest boner for Bradley Cooper, but after Burnt, i'll never watch his movies again !
Is it supposed to put De Niro in one of the movie's posters if the only person that appears almost all the movie is Cooper?!
Is it supposed I think that Bradley Cooper is a good actor?!
Ok..Another action/thriller movie totally loyal to Hollywood's formula...nothing new...just that pills...:s...
hmph. So many things make you ask: WHY? but if you stop thinking about any of those things it is enjoyable..... sort of. Brain receptor enhancement, anyone?
A mesmerizing, stylish and totally addictive adrenaline-rush. A smart, fresh, bold and tremendously original film. It`s a sharp, wickedly funny, slick and dynamic edge of your seat thriller. A dazzling experiment that works with mad genius. Bradley Cooper gives a brilliant and incredible performance, he dominates the screen with his charisma, charm, humor and extraordinary talent. A movie star making performance. Robert De Niro is terrific. It`s Director, Neil Burger`s triumph. A well-crafted, well-acted and dazzlingly entertaining film. It delivers the perfect amount of edge and wit. It shatters the senses and pushes you to new and exciting limits.
Limitless is a fun flick, a bit silly here and there in terms of believibliity, but a solid mind-bending action picture. Bradley Cooper is cool as the down on his luck writer who one day pops a pill that expands his mind's capabilities - temporarily. And he gets hooked.
Exciting and well paced, the movie doesn't overstay its welcome. Tightly written and edited. Efficient acting, if not great.
Loved the Bruce Lee "flashbacks" as Cooper "learned" to fight back. Many creative tricks here... flashy visuals all over the place.
The concept alone is enough to pull you into this world. The film's execution may not be perfect, but its flaws don't bog it down, so as long as you're game for an easy watch, this'll do the trick.
La vi porque la serie me hace gracia y quería conocer el origen. Me sorprendió ver que todos los recursos visuales están ya en la película. Por lo demás, uno de los peores capítulos de la serie.
bradley cooper is the most annoying actor working in hollywood but this movie is still fun as hell and i'll fight for it
Maybe this is how Donald Trump happened
