Limitless is a highly entertaining, lowbrow Manhattan thriller based on the novel by Alan Glynn. Bradley Cooper plays Eddie Morra, a down-and-out who stumbles upon a silver bullet to solve all his problems.
Co-stars Abbie Cornish and Robert de Niro – although we’ve seen him give more inspired performances. However, Cooper is perfect as the protagonist and the film delivers.
Fast-past, fun fodder for a tired mind.
As always, we recommend you don’t ruin any surprises by reading spoilers or watching this trailer:
