Hello all! What you do if you could think your way out of any situation like MacGyver? If you could use all your brain power? after all they say we only use 10-20% of our brain power! The movie I am reviewing is Limitless starring Bradley Cooper (A Team), Abbie Cornish & Robert DeNiro (A movie heavy hitter). By the way I wanted to post that doing drugs never solves anything this is just a movie review ok? Thank you! :)
It all starts when out of luck Eddie Moora (Cooper) after going through a major writers block for his next book & his girlfriend dumps him & he is behind on the rent (poor schmuck), bumps into his shady ex brother in law Vernon Gant who's work is lets say dealing shall we say some questionable merchandise. Vernon gives him the drug known as NZT-48 & when Vernon is dead. Anyways even at first he has his doubts he takes it to see what will happen & boy does it ever blow his mind! LOL! He even acts much like someone on the positive side of Aspergers/High Functioning Autistic with his fact ramblings (I have been know to be a walking encyclopedia myself) & like my hero Temple Grandin starts literally thinking in pictures,heck he starts to think in stereoscopic video always anticipating his next step & plus he gets so smart he can learn things at super speed like Data from Star Trek. With the new things he learns he rises to the top of the business world catching the attention of Carl Van Loon (DeNiro) a big business mogul whom he takes Eddie his wing. However when there are times he runs out of the precious drug & lets just say that coming down is not fun for anyone (with all do respect to those who are really are fighting real addictions, please be aware this is just a review of the movie and I respect & commend those fighting the real thing,thank you) Also Eddie has to be constantly on his guard as there are bad guys & assassins all around trying to get the drug also. While trying to find ways to get more of it himself & stay ahead for business with Van Loon. Sorry I can't give away the ending you will have to watch for yourself! The dvd comes with an alternate ending,deleted scenes,director commentary, & Man Without Limits special. By the way blu ray is not necessary as the regular dvd will do if on a budget.
In conclusion this movie is a big thumbs up! I will also post some links for more info about the movie. Thank you for coming by!
