Story centered on drug abuse sends very iffy messages.

I'm not sure Limitless (or should I say Neil Burger) knew exactly what it wanted to be. As an anti drug film it excels, should the deprivation that a drug habit can lead to - that is until the end. It is also an interesting Sci-fi 'What if' scenario, reminiscent of a Philip K. Dick story - the possibilities of which could have been endless. In the end, although it is a good film, it is let down by the complete lack of moral (point) at the end of the film, which doesn't feel like it was the intended conclusion and I suspect there might have been some meddling by producers with cold feet. Maybe we'll never know but I think it could and should have been better - it's all down to the last 15 minutes.

This real life story of a man who gets hold of a drug that enables one to work to their full potential is watchable enough, but nothing that would make me want it go on limitless. While the director does a fair job with the storytelling, and changing names and maintaining the anonymity of the characters involved, that's not quite enough to fulfill my doze of entertainment. The director gotta take one pill, I guess.

Outstanding delivery of a pretty neat idea. Would you take a pill that could help you use 100% of your brain power, even if it made you an addict? The excellent camera work and editing raise this premise high above average, even though the story does not always have the momentum it'd need. However, the ending is satisfying and refreshingly amoral.
