Mr. A. from PENFIELD, NY
Reviewed on 1/29/2014...
Great story about a drug that increases brain power. Users become intellectual giants, but like the Jekyll and Hyde formula, there is a down side. The drug will eventually kill you, that is unless your new-found brain power leads you to ruin first. A great retelling of Victorian hubris themes (Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, The Invisible Man).

Pros:
Great story retold in modern setting
Great cast including Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro
Amazing scenes showing the effect of how the drug makes you smarter

Cons:
As with most Hollywood movies, loose ends tied up too neatly
Some improbable situations that make it difficult to suspend disbelief

Overall:
Strong watch recommendation

How well you receive this movie may depend on the notion of realism: does the viewer easily get swept away with tales of splendor, dabbling with the extraordinary while accepting its accompanying superficial counterpart at the same time, or does the viewer have a stronghold with the tangibles, accepting what is possible while letting everything else that isn't fall by the waist-side? This dichotomy may alienate the movie's favorite from unfavorable fan base. Limitless' strong suits are quite good: sharp editing, moderate cinematography, mise en scene, and favorable lead performances head Neil Burger's production. The negatives come from the foundation of believability. If the viewer doesn't buy into the premise, what is there to enjoy? It would look like a mere fictional production of a drug addict with a brain. The plot steamrolls through most of the film but becomes a bit stagnant in the end, and even treading into contrived waters. Despite these, the sum of its parts make this final product well-refined and a joy to watch - even if you don't buy into absolutely everything this production conveys.
