I’m not a huge Bradley Cooper fan, but I have to give him an A+ for this movie. I wasn’t expecting much from this film and watched it out of boredom more than anything else and I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised. The cinematography was very unique in the way it portrayed how the drug made you “see” the world. It was almost as if the cinematographer wanted you to “see through” the clear pill that was NZT as if you were holding it up to your eye. It’s a neat concept, to think what your life could be like if you could use 100% of your brain at the same time. The main character Eddie (Bradley Cooper) is one entertaining slacker turned whiz kid. Limitless is definitely a fun film to watch and The Scribe’s Desk gives it 3.5 loupes out of 5.
Did You Know?: Limitless is based on the 2001 novel The Dark Fields by Alan Glynn? Don’t you just love books on film?
I love watching movies that I don't have any expectations about and then am pleasantly surprised (like Observe and Report and Along Came Polly, both totally hilarious movies that I didn't think would be that good, but turned out to be super funny). It's so much better than having high expectations and then the movie totally sucks, that's such a let down. I'll have to add this one to the list of ones to watch.
Ha ha! I haven't seen Along Came Polly in years! Who says the unexpected can't be good! If you're talking movies that is…
I wish more people would write sites like this that are actually helpful to read. With all the garbage floating around on the web, it is a great change of pace to read a site like yours instead.
