Limitless stars the famous actor Bradley Cooper as Eddie Mora. Definitely had a great time watching this movie because of the twists and the suspense that was packed in, which made it interesting. The movie is about a man who takes a pill to be the best of himself and be able to accomplish whatever he wants, which turns out to be true and he gets surprised himself too. As time passes, he is capable of doing many things that he ever imagined but in a good way. I rate this movie a solid 4 out of 5 because of how everything was portrayed in the movie and the suspense that was created to make it fascinate to watch. @BirdieBooks of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

movies not bad, not great either. the television show based on this movie was so much better. its just too bad CBS didn't agree, canceling after only one season, (ending with a cliffhanger too).
movie would be better if the story flowed consistently throughout. I found myself constantly wondering if I missed something ; or if the producers thought throwing in a handful of scenic views would distract me from the lack of a fully formed plot.

Bradley Cooper takes a pill to make him a good actor. It doesn't work.

Not exactly "adrenaline charged", as the box claims, but a very engaging film that moves along at a good, steady pace, with plenty of twists and suspense. Cooper is perfect in the part, as is Di Nero in his role. Well cast and well acted; an excellent film.
The story puts an interesting twist to the questions of true self and true ability. Another story about an athlete getting to the top with steroids wouldn't have been quite as suspenseful, nor quite as thought-provoking. But, you can ignore the questions and enjoy the suspense, if you like; it's a very well made film.

It had a very interesting plot. The only problem was the immoral/sexual content and the language and the taking of Our LORD's name in vain. Proceed with caution.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this thrilling action-drama. I knew very little, but I had heard Bradley Cooper's performance was highly praised. And I was very pleased. LIMITLESS was exciting, not exactly Oscar gold but certainly not an immemorable time-waster. LIMITLESS is about a man who has so much potential but it's buried deep. When an acquaintance from his first marriage reappears in his life, offering him a pill to be the best possible person he can be, the offer is too good to be true. Suddenly, he's stacked higher than he could ever imagine, capable of recalling every bit of info he should've long forgotten. He becomes a superman of sorts. But all is not as it seems. And with an impressive visual style that makes LIMITLESS accessible to the imaginations of its viewers, I was glued to the edge of my seat. Very much like getting to a theme park attraction inexplicably without a line, LIMITLESS may have flew under the radar but I genuinely enjoyed this entertaining thrill ride. Of course, I recommend it.

I thought the concepts in this movie were pretty interesting. Really made me think.

Between sci-fi and thriller; intelligently done, and Cooper, perfectly cast.

Decent movie in many respects. Story is well conceived and thought out. Contains plot twists, drama, suspense. Bradley Cooper is kind of actor who is attractive to women, but cool & funny enough for guys to watch in a movie. DeNiro delivers his standard, very effective job. Enjoyable.

This is a great movie! The director fully captured the "One'er" with dramatically captured "vanishing viewpoint" and perspective that was truly "Limitless" (never ending..)..
Best cinematography I've seen to date!! Check it out and Enjoy.....M

Story in which an ordinary man stumbles upon a pill which greatly increases his intelligence and talents. His first thought is to amass as much money as possible, murdering several people who get in his way. Happy, cheerful ending.

Amazing movie! My favorite actor is Bradley Cooper so it was pretty much a given that I would love this movie but It was even better than I expected!! I loved it! He was great in this. Robert De Niro had a small role but he was good also. As soon as I was done watching the movie I wanted to start it all over again.

Excellent Movie! Fast paced and has a great ending with DeNiro

Not for younger kids! Main character is suspected of murdering a woman he had sex with, a character is blinded, and two other characters are murdered in a public park.

This movie was based upon Alan Glynn's most excellent book, Limitless [originally titled Dark Fields], and the author has several other excellent novels in the Irish Noir category: Graveland, Bloodland and Winterland.

Well done in general. Great concept; good acting. He acted very well in this movie; believable.

Bradley Cooper plays a man who tries a new drug that improves his ability to learn way faster than normal people. He uses it to advance himself, but not everything is fine and dandy. Perhaps this is practice for his more serious role in "Silver Linings Playbook," as a man with a bipolar disorder. In "Limitless" he often gets into some bad spaces where his thinking also is disordered. I really don't remember much about his acting ability in "Hangover," but somebody that drinks too much also is somewhat disordered.

Great concept... what would you do with a pill that allowed you to use 100% of your brain? It makes for an entertaining watch... but is occasionally bogged down by flat acting and gimmicky special effects.
