[7.25/10] Limitless (2011)

Limitless (2011)

QuickRating:
Driven by its cool premise and Bradley Cooper's cocky, yet fabulous performance, "Limitless" is an imaginative, finely-crafted and thoroughly entertaining sci-fi thriller, that intentionally shows the two sides of the same coin - possessing an unlimited mind power can make you a super-human, but if you forget to take control of it, it will take control over you and destroy you. Be aware of what you wish for!

This was a great film. I loved the darkness of it, how Cooper spirals. It stayed pretty faithful to the novel as well, though I did notice a few, small differences, but I guess it's because film and novel are two different mediums.

Excellent and provocative summation. :)

Mel, I didn't find it to be that great, but still enjoyed it. Cooper was possessed by the darkness, no doubt about that. The mood of the film just wasn't my cup of tea, but I liked the execution of it and its moral message.

Thanks, hon.:)

Solid review, my man. Glad you enjoyed it! It was better than expected.

Nebular said...

Matty, it's more of a summation rather than a review, but thanks anyway. :) I liked it a lot but wasn't crazy about it.

I just saw this the other day and enjoyed it. Maybe they could have done some other things with his ability, but it turned out ok. As a stock investor, I particularly liked how he took his money to the market to make more money. That's what I would have done lol! The dark side of the movie was effective as well.

HorrO, I enjoyed it as well, but for me it lacked that special something, that would have made it brilliant. Otherwise, I absolutely agree ;)

HorrO said...

Agree it was missing something that would have made it stand out.

It was a really great idea for a movie but for me it didn't deliver on it's full potential. Saying that, it was an ok watch and pretty stylish. Great blog man!

Nebular said...

Sam, exactly! :) That's why I gave it a 7.25 out of 10.

Thank you so much, buddy. I'm glad you like it. I found your blog to be pretty fantastic as well. :)
