Becky and I went to see Limitless when it came out and I’m finally getting around to writing our review. We took our kids to this one and that probably was not one of our better parental decisions. The MovieFone website at Limitless describes the movie as follows:
“Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro star in ‘Limitless,’ a paranoia-fueled action thriller about an unsuccessful writer whose life is transformed by a top-secret “smart drug” that allows him to use 100% of his brain and become a perfect version of himself. His enhanced abilities soon attract shadowy forces that threaten his new life in this darkly comic and provocative film…”
Limitless is a movie that’s a trip. It stars Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro which are actually really good together, even though they are conflicting characters. The story of Limitless is a totally wild ride into the world of manufactured drugs and trying to tap the power of the human mind.
There is plenty of action in this movie with some suspense. The character is a kook who goes from being a lazy guy working on writing a Novel to a high-powered financial wizard in demand as a Wall-Street Maverick after taking a magic pill. The story is well done, it’s a very cool concept that was different than other films, but be forewarned there are some parts that are disturbing for sure. It gets a bit violent at times with the Russian Mobsters that come on the scene and it’s definitely PG-13.
Becky and I both liked it, but I think I liked it more than she did. The kids liked it too, but it’s not really a movie for kids, so I’m going to leave them out of this review.
