As one man evolves into the perfect version of himself, forces more corrupt than he can imagine mark him for assassination. Out-of-work writer Eddie Morra’s (Cooper) rejection by girlfriend Lindy (Abbie Cornish) confirms his belief that he has zero future. That all vanishes the day an old friend introduces Eddie to NZT, a designer pharmaceutical that makes him laser focused and more confident than any man alive. Now on an NZT-fueled odyssey, everything Eddie’s read, heard or seen is instantly organized and available to him. As the former nobody rises to the top of the financial world, he draws the attention of business mogul Carl Van Loon (De Niro), who sees this enhanced version of Eddie as the tool to make billions. But brutal side effects jeopardize his meteoric ascent. With a dwindling stash and hit men who will eliminate him to get the NZT, Eddie must stay wired long enough to elude capture and fulfill his destiny. If he can’t, he will become just another victim who thought he’d found invincibility in a bottle.

Original, creative, enjoyable
I feel it needs to be said that this is a superhero movie. We’ve had a myriad of superhero movies in recent years, but only a handful (e.g. the first Iron Man) were films where it seemed to me cast and crew were not fast asleep but actually cared about what they were doing. This is definitely an example of that rare breed. It is one of those movies where you spend the entire length of the film NOT noticing that it is a superhero movie, and quite possibly this will not dawn on you even on the ride home, because the subject matter is handled seriously: the characters are 3d life-like people; the plot has life-like complexity; there is ambiguity and room for interpretation. Somebody cared. I had my doubts, going in, whether Bradley Cooper can pull this one off. He sure can. Other actors are also at the top of their game. (I don’t feel I need to pick out De Niro in particular, here.)
So, the good: Original, creative writing. Original, creative, beautiful cinematography. Original, creative direction. Interesting throughout. Believable, except when it isn’t trying to be. Good pacing. Well acted.
The bad: Some scenes stretch credulity. Most by just a little. The fore-last scene is over the top. I loved it. (My wife said: “They’re trying to pull a Tarrantino. Right?” and they were.) I can’t blame anyone who says this scene ruined the movie for him. It isn’t believable. It isn’t consistent with the rest. But it’s definitely where the roller-coaster that is this movie is at its most extreme. By contrast, the last scene left me with a feeling of something missed. It’s like the script saves the best for the sequel.
So, unfortunately, this movie doesn’t have an ending that makes you forgive it for everything else. Quite on the contrary. It just happens to be so good that I was willing to forgive it its bad ending.
‘LIMITLESS’ definitely has limits but still entertaining.
‘LIMITLESS’: Three Stars (Out of Five)
Bradley Cooper has came a long way from TV’s ‘ALIAS’. Here he headlines his first major motion picture, taking over a role once filled by Shia LaBeouf (who backed out of the film after hurting his arm in an automobile accident). A film with Robert De Niro playing a supporting player! As a whole the movie is entertaining but nothing great and Cooper’s leading man performance is adequate but not spectacular. I think he’s better in ensemble pieces like ‘THE HANGOVER’ and ‘THE A-TEAM’. The film tells the story of a down on his luck writer who takes a secret drug which enhances the level his brain is able to function at, making him ‘super smart’. It’s directed by Neil Burger and written by Leslie Dixon (based on the book ‘The Dark Fields’ by Alan Glynn).
Cooper plays Eddie Morra, a New York City writer who’s recently been dumped by his girlfriend (Abbie Cornish, who has also recently been seen co-starring in ‘SUCKER PUNCH’). He’s struggling to meet a deadline for a book he’s been contracted to write when he stumbles upon his ex brother-in-law (Johnny Whitworth) who offers him a free sample of an unknown pharmaceutical drug called NZT. The drug provides him the ability to use a hundred percent of his brain’s full capacity, as opposed to the supposed normal twenty percent, and makes him super confident. When he comes across a full stash of the drug he begins succeeding at everything he had always dreamed of. Then the side effects kick in and he discovers there are others after the drug as well that will stop at no cost to get a hold of it.
The movie has an interesting premise and is played out at an amusing pace but it’s full of holes and moral detachment. Without giving away too much I’ll just say that if you stop to think about many details in the story they don’t really make sense. There’s also several things the main character does in the film that are highly morally questionable yet they’re portrayed as if they’re heroic actions. I also think Cooper isn’t quite cut out to carry a film like this and makes the character even a little less likable. With all it’s flaws the movie is still somewhat interesting and intriguing and definitely entertaining. It’s a mixed bag but worth the watch.
