From Amazon.co.uk

Depending on your take-away of the visual inventiveness and jam-packed plot that drives Limitless to peaks and valleys of preposterous fun, drugs are either a terrible scourge or the fundamental solution to all of life's problems. Limitless isn't exactly a morality tale, but the made-up drug that turns Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper) from a scuzzy loser into a master of the universe does become a metaphor for ambition, menace, devastation, and ultimate success. Eddie is a writer who can't write, his girlfriend (Abbie Cornish) just dumped him, and his squalid lifestyle has driven him to the breaking point. After a chance meeting with his mysterious ex-brother-in-law, he's offered change in the form of a little transparent button, a pill code-named NZT that allows the user to access 100 percent of their brain. After he pops it, Eddie is transformed. Everything he's ever heard, seen, glanced at, or passed by becomes neatly ordered in his mind. He has total recall, total access to knowledge both known and unknown, and he understands exactly what to do. Without the ingenious visual effects that frequently push the bounds of innovation, our view of the alteration of Eddie's drug-induced reality would fail utterly. When his synapses snap from every new hit, the sparkling blue of Bradley Cooper's eyes pops off of the screen, the colours and textures of his reality ripple and zoom with his every move. Of course he needs more of the drug to maintain his progression, not to mention his very life--remember, kids, drugs are addictive!

The movie throws tangled clumps of plot threads against each other in a whizzing mass that incorporates Russian gangsters, shadowy surveillance figures, cops, lawyers, and a couple of murder mysteries. It's a hurtling progression of narrative tangents that often echo the physical and mental extremes Eddie experiences when he's either on or off the drug. Sex, society, and money are big parts of Eddie's newfound brainpower, and he exploits them all. The money element leads Eddie to a big-shot investor, played with twinkling irony by Robert De Niro. The sparring matches between Cooper and De Niro are some of the best parts of the convoluted and manic pace that drives Limitless inexorably onward. Abbie Cornish is relegated to the sidelines far too much, and the suspension of disbelief required to simply maintain stride with the movie's frenzied velocity is often exhausting. But there are some bigger themes that director Neil Burger and writer Leslie Dixon try to sustain in spite of repeated absurdities meant to be accepted at face value. Eddie's actions are both vile and redemptive, and Cooper gives a rousing performance as he bounces from being contemptible to irresistible, sometimes all at once. Fortunately, Limitless is itself redeemed by the nifty visuals that often do evoke the effects of a drug that promises perfect clarity. It's best to just forget the ludicrous lack of coherence and enjoy it as a wildly entertaining trip on a perfect drug that offers the potential for payback and infinite salvation. --Ted Fry

Product Description

Techno thriller, based on Alan Glynns 2003 novel The Dark Fields, starring Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro. When failed writer and loser in love Eddie Morra Cooper, through a series of convoluted events, discovers the new designer drug MDT-48, his life and outlook are immediately changed. This latest of pharmaceutical concoctions goes straight to work on Eddies brain power, making him the sharpest thinker on the planet. He has instant recall of everything hes ever learned and uses it to propel himself into the world of high finance, where he attracts the interest of high-powered businessman Carl Van Loon De Niro. Unfortunately MDT-48 comes with some particularly nasty side-effects that soon make themselves felt and as Eddies ascent stars to falter, so does his mind. He soon discovers, however, that the paranoia hes feeling is utterly justified and there are dangerous people on the loose who really are out to get him.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Surprise 12 Mar 2013
By N. Lang
Format:DVD
From the trailers I had seen, this didn't really look to be a great film, but after watching it I was rather impressed. Finally in a main role that has some bite, Cooper plays his role flawlessly.

The underlying theme is clever, making the viewer ask themselves some moral questions - what would you do given the chance?

Shot in a thoughtful and impactful way throughout, the director uses a miriad of colours and subtle effects to bring you into the different, clearer world in which our protagonist finds himself.

The ending was good, not the obvious choice, which makes the film better. De Niro's role wasn't quite fleshed out enough to have the impact intended, but overall a very enjoyable film, kudos.

Bradley Cooper gives a brilliant performance of Eddie, who's life turns into everything he's ever wanted over night, thanks to the designer drug NZT-48. A highly intelligent and action filled movie, definitely one of my favorites!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mind-blowing good fun 24 May 2011
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Bradley Cooper (The Hangover) plays Edward "Eddie" Morra an unkempt writer-come-loser who has recently been dumped by his long-term girlfriend (Abbie Cornish) for a complete lack of drive. When he bumps into his drug-dealing ex-brother-in-law, he is given an experimental new drug called NZT. The pitch is; it allows you to "access 100% of your brain", whilst there is no high or intoxication, NZT brings clarity like no other nootropic before. Everything you have learnt, seen, read, overheard or even just glimpsed becomes neatly ordered and integrated into your thoughts. Naturally, this turns Eddie into a super-motivated genius with the solution for anything. However when Eddie's dealer turns up dead and strange men start following him in the street, his meteoric rise to stardom - fuelled by NZT - starts to look like it might run out of steam all too soon. Will Eddie climb high enough before the drug runs out? Or will the shadier elements of the experimental pharmacological world catch up with him first?

Limitless is a great film with snappy direction (credit to Neil Burger) shot in such a way that the stylised scenes allow us to experience Eddie's high. The concept is supported by a great cast (Robert De Niro, the beautiful Anna Friel and Abbie Cornish) and some great scenes (The party where Eddie is literally everywhere at once and holding about thirty simultaneous conversations stands out). Of course this is Hollywood, so the morals of taking a drug to better yourself is countered by the negatives of addiction, withdrawal and inevitably, death.

4.0 out of 5 stars My enjoyment for this film is limitless! 27 Nov 2011
Format:DVD
Fast flowing, action from the opening scene instantly draws you to enjoy this wonderfully written Bradley Cooper film.I was very pleased to sit through this fantastic film, even if i had to sit on the edge of my seat!

The movies dynamic elements i thoroughly enjoyed, such as the great use of flashbacks, action-packed scenes and the enticing mysterious moments where it really makes you wonder, what is going to happen next? Well of course, its more enjoyment...

The idea of the movie is the creation of a new drug that allows the main character, Eddie (Bradley Cooper) to access 100% of his potential brain capacity. This allows him, and several other characters to work is the most efficient of ways and achieve wonderful things;However there were consequences...

I was intrigued from the very beginning of the opening titles and still anticipating more at the very end. I would recommend this film to anyone who enjoys a fun, fascinating and overall fantastic film.

My time for this film is Limitless...

Limitless is a great film with a less than traditional storyline. This movie looks amazing on Blu-Ray. Buy if you're a fan of Bradley Cooper, don't buy if you are a fan of De Niro :p

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant film 14 Mar 2012
Format:DVD
Enjoyed every single minute of this film. Bradley Cooper is great (love that he seems to have no vanity and never takes himself too seriously). The film is fast moving, action packed and full of twists and turns.
