A Very Limited....BLAH....
No one wants to become an addict to damage himself. Everyone becomes addicted to something because of the promise of becoming hipper, cooler, suaver, smarter and perhaps even more charismatic. Now let me stop myself from ripping off the prologue of BATMAN VENOM, and let us discuss director Neil Burger’s “Limitless”. It does have an interesting premise, as the screenplay by Leslie Dixon brings a story about a wonder drug that allows someone to access all the functions of one’s …

This is my new express review format since there's more to say about TV commercials these days than most films. It's a super-sexy new format that will help you save time, get to the good stuff, and wish you were reading something else all at the same time.   Limitless has the most egregious use of voice-over in modern cinematic history. It's actually the only film you can watch on a radio since Bradley Cooper tells you exactly what he's doing every two seconds. It's …

**1/2 out of ****     What is there was a pill for instant awesomeness and intelligence? This is a question that Neil Burger's "Limitless" attempts to give some insight into, with a plot that involves such a drug and the many people that could make use of it. He does well in adapting the novel, "The Dark Fields", for his film; which is fast-paced, fun, entertaining at the core, and even a bit intriguing. I like the set-up used here, and I like the actors involved. They each do …

Oddly limited
LIMITLESS   Written by Leslie Dixon   Directed by Neil Burger   Starring Bradley Cooper, Abbie Cornish and Robert De Niro       Carl van Loon: So, Eddie Morra, what’s your secret?   Eddie Morra: Medication.       Drugs are bad. While that is generally the rule, how can anything that allows you to access the full potential of your brain actually be bad for you? Well, it can if the mere idea of it inspires …

Star Rating:         Oscar Wilde is one of the most quotable writers I know of, and I’m pleased that reviewing Limitless has given me the opportunity to mention one of his best witticisms: I am so clever that sometimes I don’t understand a single word of what I am saying. Screenwriter Leslie Dixon and director Neil Burger should have had that quote engraved on a plaque and hung over their office doors, for it would give passersby an idea of what to expect …

15 - 105mins - Mystery/Thriller - 23rd March 2011 Soon to be released on the 23rd of March, Limitless focuses around the life of writer Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper) a man who is heading nowhere fast in life; he is most definitely in the slow lane. The book he's currently working on has reached healthy zero words after an extended spell of writers block and his love life is trending down a similar road. Cue a chance encounter with an old acquaintance and the discovery of a way to escape …
