Predictable, and well done

Okay, I went into Limitless with a bit of skepticism. I really thought the premise was good, I just wasn't sure they could pull it off. This seems to be one of those movie themes that can devolve into utter schlock. Well, I was pleasantly surprised with the movie. The acting was solid if unspectacular, the pacing was good, and the visuals (I saw it in xD) were well done. At the same time, I found the plot to be, for the most part, very predictable. Some of the scenes were filmed in a manner that was a bit disturbing to watch (which I think was the intent). Not in a violent way, although there is a fair amount of violence in the movie, more in a "the scenes are changing too quickly" way. As for the violence, I wouldn't take younger children to this. There is a fair amount, and some of it is fairly graphic. It makes sense in terms of the plot, and my date was a bit squeamish about it. This movie won't win any awards, and I found it to be good entertainment.

I am not sure of what this movie tells us about the key to success? At the end of the day, what he would get or lose?

Loved this movie. It was fresh and unexpected. The acting, plot, storyline and continual action made it a complete win in my books.

Limitless... well not really... Just really smart and addicted

My wife and I went to see this on Saturday. Looked like an interesting movie and I like Bradley Cooper. Lets just say the limits of a mans mind on this drug is that of a computer able to access any information you have ever been exposed to. there is no supernatural aspect just able to access data and to understand concepts... It is really a drama about addicition and the things you might go through because of an addiction. So pretty grotesque... over all we were both entertained but the main theme we left with was wow did he really do that? Addiction makes you do crazy stuff. I found some of the things that this drug helped the people do to be extremely basic nothing limitless about it. again entertained but could have been so much more. The way they filmed things was pretty cool esp the aspects of lost time. for me entertainment is what a movie is supposed to do and this did entertain could have been better but. I would say this is a movie for adults because it is all about addicition
