Where This Meets That
Aspiring novelist Eddie Morra is stuck in a rut until he acquires a pill that’s advertised to maximize his fullest potential. After a sample gives him an entirely new outlook on life, he is determined to seize the opportunity at seemingly any cost.
Soon after his chemically-induced metanoia, Morra banters with his new set of social elite friends about the natural human inclination to exceed its grasp. Of course, this foreshadows Morra’s track through most of the movie that follows.
Limitless is a refreshingly original production that features sharp film work and performances. Bradley Cooper shows impressive versatility as Morra, and Robert De Niro brings heavyweight clout in limited screen time.
With a small dose of suspended disbelief to cover a few minor hiccups, Limitless ultimately left me satisfied.
Limitless score: 3.5 Falcone Rings
