If there was a drug that would make you the best possible version of yourself, would you take it? That's Bradley Cooper's choice...

Limited and pointlessBy Gordon Vader Review Master (144 reviews) from Emerald City, oz , 12 Jun 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]
[Highly rated reviewer]This film highlights a lot of what is wrong with our society... Our hero finds a drug which turns hm into a uber genius and does what?............................................. ......................Does he find the cure for cancer?, iniate ceasefires between warring factions? Does he solve world poverty?.......................................... .....................Wel no, he bangs every thing that moves, gets himself a fat stack of cash and plays scarface with the Russian Mob... Such a waste of a concept this film actually made me sick...

Quite good, but...By Rodj71 (22 reviews) , 08 Aug 2013Firstly - a little personal bugbear of mine... What if you could use 100% of your brain, instead of just 20%..? Where did this myth originate? We already use 100% of our brains, all of us! If we only used 20% we'd all be in comas! It's how well we use our brains that is the question - the potential... So that aside, this was a fairly enjoyable film, if one just sits back and enjoys the ride, and as others have pointed out, ignores the fact that the hero also appears to be a selfish git. Instead of once unlocking his potential he sets about using his skills for the betterment of Mankind, he basically just wants to get laid a lot, make an obscene amount of money, and of course, perfect and make more of the wonder drug. And as someone else said on here - it's a bit sickening if you stop and think about it. But maybe that's the point we're supposed to get from this, I dunno what the writers & directors aim was with this film. I doubt it was to make us stop and think about human excess and selfishness, but maybe it was... The film is well acted and the special effects are well done, if a little dizzying at times.
Worth watchingBy a customer , 04 Aug 2013Very enjoyable movie. Something original ... makes a change from most of the boring rubbish out there. One of the best movies I`ve seen for a while.

Look out for the iceBy cmc1002 (32 reviews) , 27 Jun 2013The focal idea of Limitless is simple, a drug that can help you to work to the best of your potential. Bradley Cooper portrays the journey from uninspired author to enigmatic genius very well with sufficient charisma, however with such a good idea to play around with the film could have gone into more imaginative places. What could have been a fantastic film turned into simply a good action film, a particular set piece involving an ice rink standing out as a lighter moment.
