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…
This movie is a douche bag.
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…
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 hate science fiction movies for some reason. Also I hate Bradley Cooper here, he is literally just the dialogue. Actually, everything in this movie felt dead to me, I didn't feel any type of excitement ... It was just dull throughout the whole movie. Like this story has been told a million times, except the game is a bit changed. Would not recommend
While far from perfect, this is a really entertaining movie and Bradley Cooper is perfect in this role. I don't get tired of watching it repeatedly and it's definitely cheesy and over the top but enjoyable and suspenseful at the same time. Does what it says on the tin.
smart people are assholes
Un thriller entretenido con un guión lleno de pastillas (recursos de guión) y más de un truco visual curioso en la fotografía, aunque peca de narración excesiva.
Está bien para pasar una hora y media y no se hace larga. En la categoría de thrillers-en-los-que-sólo-usamos-un-porcentaje-de-nuestro-cerebro junto con Lucy y Origen.
Promising in parts.
Interesting take on the drug topic, ending seemed to be a bit shallow and just quickly tying up loose ends. I liked Bradley Cooper's acting
When Edward Morra, a struggling writer, is introduced to NZT-48, his life changes forever.
Action Thriller directed by Neil Burger.
The plot is a bit of a mishmash of ideas and though it moves along at a good pace it never really feels like it is going anywhere and with it's thin back-story and disposable characters, it does fall into the trap of feeling like a pilot for a tv series.
The original soundtrack is composed by Paul Leonard-Morgan is quirky and compliments the on-screen proceedings perfectly.
The cast all play their roles well for the most part, and though Bradley Cooper plays the lead quite well, Robert De Niro's completely lacklustre performance is a total let-down.
The special effects…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
what was the point
he's still on a fuckin "modified" version of the drug at the end and so basically learnt nothing from all the shite he went through.... ok bradley
