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...

Really enjoyed itBy johnnyb78 (94 reviews) from Swindon , 17 Feb 2013Fascinating, unpredictable movie. This is one of those great movies where you are at a complete loss trying to guess the plot in advance. Deftly written with great twists and turns, going from grand highs to devastating lows and danger. Bradley Cooper proves to be quite the actor as well; he plays both the burnout unmotivated writer, to brilliant rich guy on the move equally well.
If only it were true!By scaredreflection (5 reviews) , 14 Feb 2013Great film! One of my new favourites. And you can see the possibility of science making this science fiction becoming science fact. If only! I thought I knew how the film would end, but I was wrong. Good ending.
Good FilmBy Faerie30 (26 reviews) , 13 Feb 2013This was ok, a few glaring inconsistencies but overall a fast paced film with some good performances. Give it a go
Not a bad effortBy a customer , 11 Feb 2013Watchable film that certainly rattles along, to the extent where you wonder if it's just a bit too much too quickly. The main character makes it big within 30 minutes of the film starting so you tend to wonder if there's much more to tell. The idea that this guy borrows money to make money is flawed and ruins the film a bit. Could have been better but enjoyable.
worth a watchBy Hawkman (2 reviews) , 07 Feb 2013I did enjoy movie - it was a pretty good concept and I thought the characters were good and well acted. Plenty of action, but i felt the ending let it down and could have been either more exciting or just shorter.. Worth a watch though for sure.
