1.0 out of 5 stars limited, more like, 10 Feb. 2016
This review is from: Limitless [DVD] (DVD)
This film initially seems to tick all the 'right boxes' (if you work in advertising or something) but as you go through you realise how facile and downright uninteresting it is.

The characters are cartoonish (stereotypical bad guy, stereotypical businessman, stereotypical surprise meeting with stereotypical old acquaintance on street) and so are the aspirations of the main character: play classical piano, speak languages, chase women... it's like the set of aspirations your typical street criminal would no doubt harbour when committing a crime (drugs, power, girls, material possessions... )

There's little drama, the soundtrack is cringeworthy and - remarkably - instantly dated (ie would have sounded dated at the actual time of release) and guess what: the main drug in question seems to destroy all but the main character. Otherwise... no film huh?

Unless you're into films appealing to people with the emotional IQ of 15, totally avoid this film, it's a waste of life energy (ironically)

1.0 out of 5 stars Unknown... and will stay that way., 11 Nov. 2015
You know that rumour that some supermarkets pour dye or bleach on the food they waste so that it's ruined? The same could be said for this book: straight from the start it's ruined, with an unnecessary story of his family, a time in Jamaica and a return to some toilet of a town in the UK once the fun of being abroad has patently worn off, at any expense (literally) for a certain party. Why would you depict this. Why oh why.

As a fan, you just want to know about the music, not this.

Book closed, thrown in bin, back to the albums.
