Movie Review: Limitless


My Rating: 3Stars

This evening I saw the movie Limitless at UA Cinemas, Times Square, Hong Kong. One of the movies from my Must See Movies list.

This movie has an original story. It is about a down and out writer who receives a custom drug from his ex-brother in-law, which helped pick himself out of his slump. He later finds out the drug is not as described by his dead in-law, and comes to the realization of its deadly effects.

Its lead is one of Hollywood’s lesser known stars, Bradley Cooper. He always has a supporting role or shares the lead among other more famous actors, like in: The Hangover, Valentine’s Day and The A-Team. This time he shares the limelight with the repeated Oscar winning actor, Robert De Niro. De Niro was delivered his usual great performance, but Cooper just didn’t capture the audience with his version of the character.

In the end, this is a good movie to occupy your time or if you cannot find anything else to watch at the theatre.
