Not really what I expected going in. It was a cool concept though. Good movie.

The opening photography, I won't spoil it for you by saying more, is worth the price of the ticket. Great entertainment and I highly recommend it. Grab a BIG bag of popcorn and get ready for a RIDE.

I was expecting just another action movie, but this movie made me think in a different way. It wasn't your typical "confuse the audience with many plot points that come to a head in the last 10 min with a 'surprise' twist" kind of movie. Instead, it was written intelligently enough that I could somewhat turn my brain off and follow the movie, but look back and make other connections I hadn't made initially.
I didn't fully appreciate the writing until looking back on it the next day.
Also, the cinematography was great. I loved the use of color saturation to emphasize different emotions.

Limitless was an excellent movie from start to finish. From scene one, the story was engaging, exciting and entertaining. The directing and cinematography were superb! There are several scenes that quickly coast through the streets of NYC that are amazing to watch! And the colors of the scenes evoke the mediocrity and the blues and their opposite. Bradley Cooper gave a very convincing performance as both a depressed, lax writer AND a super-perceptive, sharp, motivated do-er. You don't necessarily know what's going to happen from one interaction to the next, but you do want his character to fare well. This is a must-see!!
